What Is Considered A Water Removal Emergency?
As a homeowner, safety is always the first priority when it comes to protecting your family. It’s important to know what to do if your home has a flooding emergency, and when to call for help. There are many causes of flooding like a burst pipe, overflowing appliance, storms and rising water. If you’re experiencing a water emergency and don’t know what to do, get your loved ones out of the house and call our technicians for emergency water removal.
Depending on the type of flooding your home is experiencing, there are some steps you can take to help stop further damage to your home. For instance, if your dishwasher is flooding, then turn off the electricity and water if you can do so safely. We can quickly resolve the problem by removing any standing water in your home and drying out the area.
If you have the misfortune of having a pipe burst, you’ll need to shut off the main valve if you can and call a local plumber in Phoenix. Always turn off the electricity when you can in case the water comes into contact with any live currents. You’ll want to contact a plumber to fix your leak, but we can take care of the water damage. Broken pipes can cause damage quickly depending on their location, soaking your walls, floors and foundations. Our emergency service water removal technicians will make sure your home is moisture free when we’re done.
Basements often get flooded due to storms or sewer backups. Standing water in the basement should be considered an emergency. If you have raw sewage in your basement filled with bacteria, it can make you and your family sick. The water will soak into the foundation and create the perfect environment for mold. We have the equipment to effectively pump the standing water out of your home and to return it to a clean and dry area.
Don’t hesitate to call us if you’re experiencing a flooding emergency. We’re ready to take your call anytime at Rocky Mountain Restoration.
