The COVID-19 crisis has led to many people having to alter their lives. For one, stay-at-home orders have been issued across the United States to prevent the virus from spreading. Due to school closures, students are completing assignments online. Not to mention, plenty of adults are working from home too, as their workplaces are shut down for the time being. That means people are using devices like laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones non-stop. Plus, there is also other office equipment in use, such as printers, scanners, and fax machines.

So, if your device sustains water damage, in one of the scenarios that are going to be laid out here, or another one, please, don't hesitate to give American Standard Restoration a call. It doesn't matter whether the event occurs at the break of dawn or in the middle of the night; a real person can be reached on the phone 24/7. Our technicians always do their best to retrieve the items and prevent them from being lost forever.
A Leaking Water Heater Could Cause Problems
Many homes have water heaters located in their attics. There isn't anything necessarily wrong with them being there, but that is also 30, 40, 50-gallons, or more overhead. Should the tank happen to burst, the pan beneath the appliance won't be able to handle that amount of water. Rather, it will overflow and leak down through the ceiling onto anything and everything that is below, including electronics.
Well, it is no secret that these devices and water don't mix well. The tablet, phone, or whatever will probably quit working. Still, though, that doesn't mean the owner wants to lose all of his or her stuff. That is where American Standard Restoration comes into play.
Where Is That Water Coming From?
As the summertime approaches, more and more people will be running their air conditioners full blast to cool their homes, and who can blame them? Them and their family members might as well stay comfortable while they are learning and working remotely. In many cases, these cooling units are located in attics. Meanwhile, their drains connect under lavatories, or sometimes, behind bathtubs and washing machines.
In other words, the lines are continually dumping water into the other drains, along with algae. When too much of the substance builds up inside the pipe, no more water can drain as a stoppage occurs. Then, it fills the sink or pipe and spills over into the floor if the thermostat is not turned off. Much like with the other scenario, if the place where the A/C drains is located on the second-floor, anything below it on the first-floor can become damaged. Thankfully, your information, pics, and other things don't have to be lost for good, though.
