Damaged Pipes & Appliance Malfunctions

If your sink, bathtub, water heater or other appliance breaks, the outcome can vary from bothersome to devastating. Standing water on the floor can seep into the foundation, collecting in hard-to-reach areas. You may cause wood damage and invite a mold contamination. If your water damage starts from bathroom or kitchen malfunction, you additionally risk harboring illnesses. Have an emergency professional inspect the area to avoid further expenses later on.
