It is always good practice to turn the water main off while you are traveling. Unfortunately, for this homeowner, a failed supply line in the upstairs bathroom gushed water for an extended period of time. One of the biggest factors in minimizing damage caused by water is rectifying and responding to the issue immediately. Delays in repairing the plumbing issue and removal of standing water will result in a greater degree of absorption and will increase the time and energy required to properly mitigate the residence. Additionally, the cost to repair the residence, after mitigation, increases exponentially.
