Our customers are the most important part of our business.  We strive to do a great job for each and every one of our customers.

"Recently, my sister-in-law arrived at our coastal house in the afternoon and noticed water on the driveway, which was very unusual. When she went into the house, she discovered a water leak. She called my husband and told us what she had walked into. We called our insurance agent and he instructed us to call SERVPRO®. Your team arrived that evening to handle this situation, while I arrived in the next couple of days to see what was happening. Your entire crew was AMAZING. There was a lot to be done and they knew exactly what to do. The Crew Chief was great. He was very professional and kept me informed on what was happening, step-by-step. He and his crew worked very hard. I was amazed at what needed to be done to dry out a house, and the crew really knew what they were doing and worked very hard. You are lucky to have them as employees!”

5 Top Causes of Water Damage in San Antonio, Texas

7/5/2017 (Permalink)

One of the fastest ways to ruin a beautiful home is water damage. If you aren't careful, this destructive force will eat up your home's value and destroy your quality of life. SERVPRO of Braun Station in San Antonio, TX, recommends taking precautions against the most frequent situations likely to leave water damage. While some accidents still happen, protecting from these five common causes of water damage in the home will significantly decrease your risk.

Most Common Causes of Water Damage

1. Broken Pipes

A plumbing problem can spew gallons of water through your house in moments, so it's important to keep an eye on your pipes. Pay attention to leaks, drips, and signs of deterioration, and have a plumber inspect your house regularly.

2. Accident

A clogged toilet or too much soap in the dishwasher can mean water that spreads across your kitchen or bathroom. While these areas are better equipped than most to handle a spill, if there's a large-scale problem, then professional water extraction can protect your property.

3. Leaking Roofs

All it takes is one little hole to let the weather into your house—and when a problem starts at the top floor, it can trickle down all the way to the bottom. Keeping your roof in good repair will protect your interior from rain and all the problems it brings.

4. Humidity

This insidious form of water damage has no single obvious source and is likely to affect your basement. A dehumidifier can help, but to make a long-term change you'll need to work on waterproofing your basement.

5. Flash Flooding

No matter how well your house is designed, it will only keep out as much water as you and the builders plan for. Research what to do in case of a flood in your area, and take steps if heavy rains are expected. Afterward, schedule professional flood cleanup.

Not all water damage can be prevented. If you still find your house taking on water, your next best step is professional cleaning and restoration. Call SERVPRO of Braun Station today to remove and repair water damage. You can reach them at (210) 267-2159.

It is important to choose a company that you can trust when you have a water damage.  SERVPRO of Braun Station has the expertise and customer service to help you through each step of your water damage claim.  Here's a quote from a recent customer:

“There are not enough good words to describe SERVPRO’s service and the technician who took care of us after our entire living room flooded after the heavy rains. What a blessing he was!
Our insurance denied the claim, since we had no flood ‘coverage.’ Our technician came in, studied
the situation, and got right to work! He answered all questions we had and quoted a reasonable
cost. He returned yesterday to remove the equipment, and again, he was very punctual,
professional, and compassionate! Yes, compassionate, which is often hard to find in a service industry and in a man so young! I want y’all to know that our tech was the voice of calm in this crisis (or what felt like a crisis to us)! Thank you so much for your high-quality work, the reasonable pricing, and especially for our
technician. We will be more than happy to refer anyone to SERVPRO®!”
