After the Storm
We’ve talked about floods, seepage and water damages due to the weather – but what about those sneaky leaks? It's also the aftermath of the storm that poses the most risk.
Your home’s plumbing or even your window air conditioner can cause major damage inside your walls, ceilings and floors if not caught. If you notice water stains on your walls and ceilings, your first call should be to a plumber to ensure the leaking is stopped.
When the plumber is finished, call SERVPRO of Dartmouth/New Bedford to ensure that your home is properly remediated. Long term dripping water can cause mold and structural issues.

In some instances, ceiling tiles will need to be replaced and rugs might need to be removed. Our technicians will ensure that the home is properly dried.
To prevent this type of leak, keep an eye out for a higher than normal water bill, visible mold or a musty odor, or any staining on ceilings, walls and floors.
