Hot Water Heater Bursts in Framingham, MA

Hot water heater bursts causing basement to flood This is the cause of loss, a hot water heater tank that burst to cause the basement to flood.

It was Monday evening around 7pm and I was just about to sit down to eat dinner with my wife when my phone rang. Working for a company that has 24/7 emergency response services means I should answer my phone whenever possible. Sure enough, it was a gentleman who was having a bad night. His tenant in Framingham, MA just called to let him know that the hot water heater tank burst. Water flooded the basement covering the floor and its contents. I asked if this was something he wanted us to look at tonight or tomorrow and he responded, “this is something that shouldn’t wait”. I would have to agree since water moves quickly and causes damage wherever it flows. I had our on-call project manager reach out to set up a time to come out and take a look at the situation. Our project manager got there around 10pm and we had a crew at the property until midnight extracting water and setting up drying equipment. Our office worked directly with the property owner’s insurance company for billing so he did not have to. We left air movers and dehumidifiers in the basement for 3 days until everything was dried out. I think this particular job highlights exactly what SERVPRO brings to the table. We are available 24/7 with advanced technology and techniques. We are preferred vendors with most insurance carriers and can work with them directly for billing. We take the stress out of a highly stressful situation and make it "Like it never even happened." When you experience a water loss at your home or business, call the PROs at 781-861-0500.
