There are people that put an incredible amount of planning into their travel arrangements. The right flights and lodging, excursions to places they have always wanted to see. Planning for your home while you're gone may not get your full attention. 
Many people clean their homes prior to leaving for vacation. They also make sure that all the lights are off, and then also check that all windows and doors are locked securely. Many people do not consider shutting off the water line from outside of the home. Many times, nothing comes of this, but when it does, the water damage can be substantial.  Water damage in Lakewood Ranch that results from a broken water line, no matter where the break or leak is located, can cause damage throughout your home. This damage may not only spread across the floor or down the inside of a wall space but from one floor to lower levels, increasing the amount of damage your home experiences.  If you return from a vacation to find water damage call the experts at SERVPRO of East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch (941) 747-2333. Shutting off the water should be the first thing done if it can be safely accomplished. Standing water can pose an electrical hazard if electrical outlets or wiring are immersed in the water. If you are not sure about your safety, you should have professionals complete the shut-down the electricity prior to shutting off the water. Everyone should remain clear of the water to be safe.  After the flow of water has been stopped, call in SERVPRO of East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch to properly mitigate the water damage for you.
