Water damage restoration expert inspecting for small signs of water damage. 14,000 Americans require Water Damage Restoration services a day. While we cannot help all, we will always be there for Los Angeles.

In the United States, approximately 14,000 people experience a water damage restoration emergency at home or work each day.

Unfortunately, they cannot always be predicted or prevented, but instead, we can better prepare ourselves to learn how to respond in the event that water damage does strike. First and foremost, ensure your home has valid homeowners insurance coverages and know how it works. These claims are often denied for a variety of reasons leading to thousands of dollars out of your pocket.

Insurance claims can be tricky, but SERVPRO can help you secure insurance coverage for your water damage claim. 

After ensuring your home is protected on paper, here are some signs that may be an indication of water damage in your home:

  1. Staining on walls, ceiling, or other structural items. 
  2. Dripping unusual sounds of running water.
    • That little dripping noise should not be ignored, listen to your home! 
  3. Bubbling, flaking, or peeling paint. 
    • This is common in bathrooms, kitchens, etc. and can reveal elevated moisture in the drywall materials. 
  4. Significant increases in your water bill. 
    • Increases in your water bill may help you determine if that drip, stain, or bubbled paint truly is associated with an internal water damage. 

In the event that you do suffer from water damage, there are many simple tasks you can do to greatly minimize damage. With these proactive water mitigation efforts, you can avoid costly problems in the future. The SERVPRO of Park la Brea team is here 24/7 to help you with any water damage restoration emergency that may arise in your Los Angeles, CA home.
