What Water Damage Mitigation Steps Can Residents in Santa Ana Take to Reduce Damage?

Plumbing leaks are among the most common water damage situations homeowners experience in Santa Ana. While residents are at work or on vacation, a water line ruptures and pours hundreds of gallons of water into the home. The leaking water spreads to all areas of the house, inside walls, and to other floors if the main water line is not quickly shut off. Quick action by homeowners and SERVPRO can mitigate the damage caused by the leak.

SERVPRO provides water damage mitigation and repair services in Santa Ana and surrounding regions. Our experience has shown that the homeowner's contents and structure can be saved if water mitigation efforts are applied quickly. Removing pooling water, vacuuming water from cavities, and drying the home using air movers and dehumidifiers to rapidly lower humidity levels can prevent permanent damage to many porous materials.

While SERVPRO responds in less than four hours from your call, homeowners can begin mitigating the potential damage by:

  • Mopping and blotting excess water
  • Activate AC systems to add additional drying capacity
  • Remove colored materials from floors and fabrics to prevent color leaching
  • Remove loose contents from the floor and move valuable items to a dry area
  • Avoid using electrical devices of any kind in the area where water is present.

Many plumbing leaks occur while folks are away from home for extended periods. Water leak prevention steps in these situations also include:

  • Shut the main water valve controlling water to your house off while away
  • Have a neighbor check your home to make sure it is secure and dry
  • If irrigation is required, arrange for separate water feeds independent of the home's internal system
