Don't Be Beat By The Heat!
The summer months are the best months to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and warm weather. As we enjoy doing our favorite activities during this wave of heat, we are increasing the use of our Air conditioning systems, sprinkler systems, pools and good old fashioned cool showers or tubby time for the kids to cool down a bit. Anything to have fun but stay cool. Even outside garden hoses!
Along with this may come pipe bursts, ac line leaks, water tank leaks, sink, toilet and shower leaks, washing machine, refrigerator and overflowing sinks or tub. Maybe even a Jacuzzi overflow if you’re lucky enough to have one. Simply leaving the kitchen faucet running while cooking or running a bath for the kids and it overflows into the basement and causes squishy soggy carpets. That’s a disaster itself for mold. It can happen because we’re doing a hundred things at the same time. Let’s face it at times we’re all just wiped out by the heat! Don’t the heat get you down! Should a water disaster strike whatever the cause may be? Call the pros - Call SERVPRO! We’re only a hop, skip and jump away! We can save the day and ease your hassles from the damage that the unexpected has caused.
Let’s not forget the havoc Mother Nature may drop on us any time. Torrential rains and storms can cause unexpected high ground water tables, flooded basements, overwhelmed sump pumps and even those old cracks we don't pay attention to in the foundation can cause leakage and wet areas we just don’t expect. Act fast! Here’s some things you can do before calling the professionals.
- Shut off the water source
- wet vac as much water as possible
- Never run cords or electricity through standing water EVER
- Mop or soak if possible
Be prepared for the unexpected and if a disaster should occur rest assured the crews at SERVPRO of Dartmouth / New Bedford are the pros for disaster clean up, restoration, and reconstruction with 24/7 Emergency Service!
