Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

When It Rains, It Pours

1/28/2022 (Permalink)

The great Benjamin Franklin once said, “In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.” If you’re a homeowner or business, one of the most timely and costly threats to your dwelling and personal belongings is the intrusion of water that will result in water damage. While most homeowners and businesses find it appropriate to bring out the mop, industrial yellow mop bucket, and residential grade fans to fix water damage; it is always most often the water you don’t see from prolonged leaky plumbing, storm water damage, or water damage from a fire that causes harmful bacteria and mold, rotting to the structure, and more importantly –  damage to your personal belongings. Forbes Advisors states, “Every year, about one in 50 homeowners will file a water damage or freezing claim, accounting for almost 24% of all homeowners insurance claims, according to the Insurance Information Institute. The average cost of water damage or freezing claim is about $10,900.” The goal to avoid costly future restoration and irrevocable damage to personal belongings is an immediate response and effective drying. Equipped with advanced water inspection, extraction, and drying equipment, a SERVPRO of South Durham water restoration specialists,  available 24 hours a day (including holidays), will be on-site, uniformed, and initiating water mitigation services within four hours of loss to offer an immediate response when your water emergency happens! Remember, the quicker the water is removed, the less costly the damage, cleanup, and restoration to your commercial or residential property “like it never even happened.”
