What to Expect After Water Damage

When a water intrusion happens, try to determine the source of the water. If it is coming from a broken pipe inside, the water can generally be shut off at the main valve. Many contractors offering emergency services will be on site in 90 minutes or less after a call-in, but a one- to two-hour response time is within the expected range. Upon arrival, the technician should be able to provide you with an estimate, in writing, of the expected costs of extraction and drying.
