We are usually not ready when a water leak happens. It can be a water supply leak, drainage, flooding or a roof leak but it never seems to happen at a convenient time. Experts will all agree that it is most important to get the problem corrected as quickly as possible.


 

The most important thing to remember when dealing with a water leak is to get the area dry.


 


In order to do this, you must get the source of the problem corrected. Stop the water from leaking. Turn off the water, patch the hole, and stop using it if possible. Do what 
 you can even before the calling a professional if possible.

Next, make every effort to get everything dry again. Small leaks may be cleaned up with towels and sponges.  That wet/dry vacuum that has been sitting in the garage, can be put to good use right now. Open windows and using fans can all help speed things up.

Larger leaks will probably require professional help. Call them right away and explain the urgency. If they cannot get out to your home or business soon, call someone else! Water will cause bigger problems for you the longer it sits.

Water leaks, whether slow or fast, are devastating, if not dealt with in a timely manner.

Hey Tom,

These are great tips for every homeowner. Leaks no matter how small, lead to much cost and damage if not dealt with immediately.

 

Thanks again!
