Preparing Your Home for an Extended Absence

Residential Water Damage in Ohio

If you are preparing to leave your home for an extended amount of time, you should follow some simple guidelines to prepare your home for your absence:

*  Check the security alarm

* Seal boxes of food or dry goods

* Invest in a programmable thermostat

* Put the water heater in vacation mode

* Unplug electronics

* Stop or forward mail

* Set up lights on timers

* Turn off water supply

Turning off your water supply can be key, especially in the winter months.  A pipe could burst causing astounding water damage to your home.   We had a residential client call us in February 2021 overwhelmed with his newly purchased estate that was a victim of a pipe burst before he could fully move into the house.  With over 90% of the house engulfed in water damage, our team of responders arrived at the home with a drying plan in place and ready to work!

Emergency Restoration is our specialty!  If you find yourself with water damage from a broken pipe, call SERVPRO of Beachwood / Shaker Heights / Cleveland Heights or SERVPRO of South Euclid / Lyndhurst / Pepper Pike at 216-464-4498 and let us make it "Like it never even happened."®
