Knowing where, and how to shut off the main water supply in your home can help prevent against further damage.

You already know time is of the essence when it comes to dealing with water damage, but do you know how you can limit further damage immediately when you discover a burst pipe or overflowing toilet? That’s right, by knowing where your water shut off valve is you can help limit any further damage in your home. In order to start the water mitigation process, the source of the water needs to be stopped. We recommend tagging your water shut off valve so that anyone in the home can easily spot it, and turn it off.

It is important to know how to locate and operate all shut off valves in the home, this include the toilet supply lines, shut offs for sinks and appliances. If you ever notice one of these leaking, shut the water supply off immediately. After calling the professionals at SERVPRO of West Seneca/Lancaster you can begin mopping up excess water. This will also help to limit the damage. Once our team arrives onsite, you just need to sit back while we make it, “Like it never even happened."
