Flooding And Water Removal In Home After Water Main Break
Significant water incidents which require extraction services and restoration in your Longview home can happen with little warning. While many might attribute this kind of situation to flooding or some other natural disaster, the truth is, something as simple as a water break on the main line running near your property could leave you with much water to contend with in your home. Many homeowners do not think about the water line intended to distribute potable water throughout the community. This buried line is just a connection between a water treatment facility and your residence, though when there is a break on this line, it could cause significant issues with homes near the issue. There are a few paths that lead to a need for water removal after a line rupture on the main water line servicing your street.
The first of these considerations is backflow incidents. While many meters offer a last-minute failsafe to prevent an influx in back pressure to your service lines, these designs are not always able to withstand significant force. With back pressure strong enough, water can get forced through your service lines at a pressure your indoor plumbing cannot contain. At a breach, you need SERVPRO water restoration specialists to help you clean up the mess quickly.
Another possibility is a flood-like incident from water pouring (or shooting) out of the ground and
running into your property. This sudden rush of high volumes of water can quickly overcome
vulnerabilities in your home's exterior and allow water to flow into lower levels unabated. This
problem persists until the municipality can reach the appropriate isolation valves to stop the supply
of water to the damaged section of the main line. Our SERVPRO technicians can respond quickly in
these situations to help mitigate the damages your residence might experience.
As you can see, your home can experience significant water loss situations with no warning. Having the right professional assistance to help you clean up the mess and restore the damage once the water line gets repaired can save you time and irreparable disaster to structural components and contents of your home.
