Have You Come Home to a Water Leak?

Have You Come Home to a Water Leak?

Whether you”ve got a water leak in the pipes behind the shower, in the pipes underneath your kitchen sink, or elsewhere in your house, if not taken care of promptly, it could become a major problem. Maybe you”ve left for a family vacation only to come home to your worst nightmare- a major water leak from a burst pipe. Regardless of your situation, there are a couple of things you can do to make the situation a lot better for yourself.

  • Call the pros at J & R Restoration if you come home to a water leak. Shut both the electricity and the water off in your home. It will save you a headache and keep you safe.
  • Avoid any outlets, switches, or other wiring that may have gotten wet when the pipe burst occurred. You definitely don”t want to risk a situation that involves both water and electricity.
  • If you can, grab a bucket and start hauling water away. If you’re fortunate enough to have a shop-vac, take advantage and get rid of as much water as you’re able to. Dump it outside if you can.
  • Salvage what you can by setting it outside to dry, leaving it in the bathtub, or placing your items on a towel.

When in doubt, leave it to the professionals. You’re better off safe than sorry, so if you’re unsure about any of the steps, leave it to the pros at J & R Restoration because we’ve got the experience you need at a time like this.
