Water, Water Everywhere!
While out of town on vacation a pipe burst under a bathroom sink causing 10,976 gallons of water flood your home over a period of 3 days. Your water provider informs you that you were losing 149 gallons an hour. Just to get a good picture of how much water this is, it is equivalent to an 8ft deep, 17ft long swimming pool. When you returned home to find this at 10:45 at night you begin to panic and don't even know where to begin!
You call your insurance company (Thank goodness you have insurance) and they immediately dispatched SERVPRO of Martinsville and Henry County. The crew arrives immediately and begins the process. They explain everything as they are doing it and what the next step will be and that puts your mind at ease.
Over the course of a few days they removed all water, all moisture, all damaged material and items and you return to a clean, DRY and odor free home!
This is the real-life experience of a previous SERVPRO customer. There are two valuable lessons here to recognize. One is to make sure you have homeowners insurance to be sure you have a safety net in this type of emergency and also call your provider or SERVPRO immediately after you are aware of a water damage!
The sooner SERVPRO arrives the sooner we can make it "Like it never even happened."
