How to Handle a Broken Water Line
- Stop the flow of water. Start by finding the main water shut off valve on that particular pipe (If not on pipe check in the kitchen and bathrooms for those pipes).
- As a safety precaution, we recommend turning off power to the section of the home where water damage has occurred. Water moves quickly and it can get into the electrical system in a matter of seconds.
- Once you have shut off the water, call our office immediately so we can respond within the hour and give you a free damage assessment.
We work quickly with as little disruption to your life as possible. It is important when dealing with water damage hence you are up against a time clock. Speed is of the essence to limit the damage.
