Frozen pipes? Flooded carpet?

Below zero temps can freeze and literally pop & burst pipes.  If you find this happening and water gushing everywhere….  The most important thing to do right away is to stop the source of water.  Does everyone in your  home know where the main water shut off valve is?  If not take the time to show everyone.    This can save a homeowner thousands of dollars in damage by stopping the water as quick as possible.

The next step is to remove the water from your flooded home.  A wet vac is NOT going to take hundreds of gallons of water out of wet carpet and flooring.  You need to call a professional restoration expert and have the water removed as quick as possible.  Most restoration companies have crews on call 24 hours a day.  If the one you call can’t get to your home immediately you should call another one.  Time is of the essence and we know by getting to the flooded house fast we can save the homeowner money & shorter length of time dealing with this disaster in their home so they can get back to their regular life.     We serve Anchorage and the Mat Su Valley and do everything from intial dry out, monitoring, content cleaning  & if needed reconstruction.
