4 SHOPS AFFECTED DUE TO PIKE LEAK
On this job a main water broke and caused the one business to affect 4 other businesses. SERVPRO of El Cajon was called out to clean up the after math of five businesses. At the end the owner was impressed with how timely we finished and how organized we were.
The most common factor leading to a water break is wear and tear. The average life span of a water main is 60 years, some may last a lot longer and some may leak earlier. Another common reason for a water main to leak before reaching the 60 year point is shoddy plumbing. The prior contractor may not have installed the pipe properly, or may not have used the adequate fittings when connecting to the city main or the piping inside your home.
