Remediation A Water Accident for an Atlanta Homeowner
One day, a Smyrna customer called us in a panic when he discovered 4-inches of flooding in his basement. He scoured his basement in search of the leak, but could not find the source.
We ensured him that our team was more than capable of remediating the problem, fast.
When we arrived we immediately found his water shut-off valve. Turning it off was imperative in keeping the amount of damage done to a minimum.
After that, we set up our pumps and got the pooling water out of there quickly, and then we brought in dehumidifiers to begin drying the space.
It was imperative for us to clear the basement of any humidity, as it would be a prime location for mold to start growing.
After drying most of the space, we began looking for the source of the leak. Our IICRC certified techs knew how to use an infrared camera, thus it made finding the leak a breeze.
We followed exposed water pipes to a red brick wall, then we used an infrared camera to peer into the wall. What we saw was interesting, there was a burst pipe behind it, but the water was seeping into below the basement, and then resurfacing through a drain pipe.
The homeowner was pleased with how fast we were. If you are in need of a professional team that knows how to get things back under control, then call the water damage Smyrna team at 911 Restoration Atlanta.
How To Best React to a Water Incident
Reacting to water damage quickly is a great way to mitigate the total cost of water damage restoration. For example, as mentioned above, shutting the water off saved the homeowner a fortune.
But, you don’t a need a team of professionals to shut your water off for you. The homeowner can do it themselves if they know what they are looking for.
Now, the water valve varies from home to home, but it is usually in the basement, outside near exposed pipes, or in a utility panel. You know you have found it when you see that it has a rubber grip on it that is either blue or red.
You want to shut the water off when there is either a pipe burst or a flood. The pipe burst one is pretty self-explanatory. If there is no water in the pipe, then it cannot inundate your home.
However, the reason you want to do it in the event of a flood is because it is possible for the water pressure in your home to shift enough that it can lead to raw sewage backup.
