Common Causes of Water Losses

7/15/2019 (Permalink)

Water damages happen quite frequently, some of the most common causes that we see are from: failed supply lines from a toilet or fridge, water coming from outside the home, or leaks in the home bathroom.

When experiencing a water loss in your home you should first:

-Shut off the water

-Call your insurance agent

-Call SERVPRO of Blackfoot/Pocatello to begin emergency services

When dealing with a water loss from a clean water source, which is considered to be a Category 1 loss. Most of your building materials, that are wet can be salvaged and restored to preloss conditions. One thing that makes SERVPRO® of Blackfoot/Pocatello your premier restoration company, is that we have the ability to dry and salvage important documents due to water loss.

**Helpful tip**

When shopping for a Home Owners Insurance policy a thing to consider is looking into a Flood policy. There have been many times that the cause of loss has been water from an outside water source.  In result the insurance policy didn’t cover the loss and the owner was responsible for the cost.
