Some Jamaica Plain Water Mitigation Suggestions

As Jamaica Plain homeowners, we all face the threat of one day having to deal with a water-related emergency. Even though this is a troubling prospect, there are ways we can potentially reduce our odds of experiencing such situations or significantly reduce their overall impact on us. Here are a few mitigation suggestions from some local water damage remediators.

SERVPRO routinely performs water mitigation work in Jamaica Plain and, in the process, has helped countless families. As a top emergency water damage services firm in this area, we offer a wide variety of water removal services, including full basement flooding cleanup. Our team also does complete water damage repairs. With that said, there are some things you can do to reduce your risk of suffering a water-related event or minimize its effects. These measures include:

  • Regularly having your gutters/drainage networks cleaned/repaired and roofing inspected, maintained, and replaced by professionals
  • Remaining forever vigilant against potential leaks by watching out for foul odors, ceiling or wall discolorations, building material deterioration, and having a skilled remediator like SERVPRO periodically inspect your home for damage
  • Remembering to let faucets drip during periods of freezing temperatures to prevent potential pipe leaks and ruptures
  • Routinely inspecting appliances like washing machines, dishwashers, and water heating tanks to ensure that all connections are secure, water valves are in good working order, and there is no leak-causing corrosion on them
  • Making sure that no windows are cracked or otherwise damaged, and their seals are intact and not leaky

With that said, preventative water mitigation measures are not always effective. So, when they aren’t, you need the assistance of a good water damage cleanup and restoration firm like SERVPRO of Jamaica Plain/Roxbury. Our highly-trained and dedicated experts are always here and ready to help, so call us anytime at (617) 466-6909.
