Water Damage Water Removal Needs for Your Farmington Home Following a Main Line Break When a water line breaks, the gush of water into the house can cause a great deal of damage. Call SERVPRO right away for drying out and remediation.

Certified SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Water Damage Regardless of the Point of Entry in the House

Significant water incidents which require extraction services and restoration in your Farmington home can happen with little warning. While many might attribute this kind of situation to flooding or some other natural disaster, the truth is, something as simple as a water break on the main line running near your property could leave you with much water to contend with in your home.

Many homeowners do not think about the water line intended to distribute potable water throughout the community. This buried line is just a connection between a water treatment facility and your residence, though when there is a break on this line, it could cause significant issues with homes near the issue. There are a few paths that lead to a need for water removal services in Farmington after a line rupture on the main water line servicing your street.

The first of these considerations is backflow incidents. While many meters offer a last-minute failsafe to prevent an influx in backpressure to your service lines, these designs are not always able to withstand significant force. With backpressure strong enough, water can get forced through your service lines at a pressure your indoor plumbing cannot contain. At a breach, you need SERVPRO water restoration specialists to help you clean up the mess quickly.

Another possibility is a flood-like incident from water pouring (or shooting) out of the ground and running into your property. This sudden rush of high volumes of water can quickly overcome vulnerabilities in your home's exterior and allow water to flow into lower levels unabated. This problem persists until the municipality can reach the appropriate isolation valves to stop the supply of water to the damaged section of the main line. Our SERVPRO technicians can respond quickly in these situations to help mitigate the damages your residence might experience.

As you can see, your home can experience significant water loss situations with no warning. Having the right professional assistance to help you clean up the mess and restore the damage once the water line gets repaired can save you time and irreparable disaster to structural components and contents of your home. Give SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville a call today at (952) 846-4400.
