During the initial response our technicians are well verse in following the path of the water based on water source. It’s common to see a broken angle stop from a pressurized line and have the water damage impact rooms that share walls. For instance, the hallway was impacted from a broken angle stop in the kitchen, the water traveled to the hallway, bedroom, playroom, and game room. Using a moisture meter on the common walls confirms the materials impacted by the water source, and the image serves as documentation for the homeowner, property manager, and insurance company.

If the water intrusion is from a clean water source the walls and other affected building materials can be possibly dried in place. It’s important to follow industry guidelines, our goal is to minimize the disruption and make it "Like it never even happened."
