We’ve all heard the phrase: “when it rains, it pours”. Unfortunately for some, ‘pours’ refers to the gushing of water from a burst pipe, the pooling of water from an ice dam, or resulting mold and mildew from undetected water damage. No one wants to have to deal with these stressful situations, especially during a cold Baltimore winter. Don’t let the recent warm weather fool you—it will get cold, and with cold comes those situations where it ‘pours’.
Fortunately, there are 24 hour emergency services that are there to help when water damage takes over—like ServiceMaster of Baltimore.
Preparing for the worst
Preventative maintenance significantly reduces the chances of water damage from frozen or burst pipes, but there are unpreventable factors that sometimes strike when least expected. Homeowners should be prepared for these situations by having all the information needed ready when things go south. Some suggestions for remaining prepared for the worst:
- Keep emergency service information easily accessible. Pinning it to the fridge, or keeping it on a sticky note in frequently-accessed areas is a good measure.
- Have a camera or camera phone ready to take photographs of the damage, should you need to submit anything to an insurance company.
- Install notification and alert systems for your water system, such as home automation, to monitor your system for trouble. This is especially helpful for emergencies that may occur while you are away from home.
Following the above steps will help you be the most prepared you can possibly be for a water damage emergency. And when trouble strikes, you can rely on fast, 24-hour service from ServiceMaster of Baltimore.
