STOP Panicking: Water Damage 1, 2, 3, 4

STOP Restoration We know that water belongs in a very few, select areas in our home. What should we do when we find water where it doesn’t belong?

Step 1 – Stop the water. If the water leak is coming from an appliance or plumbing fixtures, shut off the water supply. There is usually a small hose that connects the appliance or fixture to the wall. Depending on the style you have, either turn or push the knob until the water turns off. When all else fails, turn the water off at the main line to your house. In fact, it’s always a good idea to know where all of the utility shut off valves are located.
