Water Damaged Belongings Restored in Surfside?
Protecting Your Possessions From Water Damage
This picture shows freshly cleaned beach towels and blankets that were damaged by a water heater that failed in the garage of a Surfside home. The water heater water line was corroded, so when it cracked, the water that sprayed and flooded all over the garage and was rusty and smelly.
SERVPRO® of Miami Beach was called in to mitigate the water damage. We inventoried and removed all of the contents, replaced the supply line to the water heater, and cleaned and deodorized all of the items that were compromised.
Here are some tips from the Insurance Information Institute for protecting your possessions from water damage:
- Store off-season and other bulk belongings in waterproof bins, especially in areas where there are plumbing pipes or that are prone to dampness, such as basements and attics.
- Keep belongings stored on shelving off the floor in basements. In case of water seepage or sewer backup, they're less likely to get damaged.
- Keep an up-to-date home inventory. Having a comprehensive list of your possessions will save time, trouble, and stress in case of loss from water damage.
