Is It Safe To Stay in My Home After a Water Damage?
When customers call us after their home has been damaged by unwanted water, one question we often hear is how safe is it to remain in the home? There are several factors to keep in mind in the immediate aftermath of a water damage situation. What is the source of the water? Water that has come from a broken sewer line or an unknown source should be considered contaminated and is not safe to touch or handle without taking proper safety precautions. Standing water in and around your home, no matter the source, can be dangerous and pose the risk of electrocution as electrical outlets and appliances may still be live. If your home has experienced unwanted water, call the restoration professionals at SERVPRO of Joliet at 815-436-5735.
