"I called my insurance company and they immediately contacted your company. Robert Ball stated he would arrive to my home within an hour. He did….amazing!!!. I cannot say enough about the professionalism of your technicians…I had the feeling that every thing was going to be okay. In the afternoon on Saturday, I had reason to call Robert Ball, as I was concerned with my circuit breaker was tripping with the increased load created by drying equipment. Robert answered his phone…no voicemail…once again, amazing!! "

“I was impressed with everyone who cleaned our house – very friendly and hard workers.” 
- Connie Thingstad
“We are writing this letter of reference for ProRestore DKI because of our appreciation and amazement of the service they showed us with their new way of cleaning product. Everything ProRestore DKI has cleaned came back to the store smelling fresh and free of stains and marks. I foresee us utilizing this service in the future when we come across some good, used sports equipment that really smells but has the quality to be resold. I recommend this cleaning service to anyone who has involvement with sport activities. From teams to single families, this service works.”

To discover a leak at home can be a huge hassle. It gets your things wet, wastes water, and creates inconveniences. Not only that, but if it’s been going on for a while, it can cause some serious damage in your house’s structure! 

Luckily, ProRestore DKI in Grimes has a simple guideline on how to do a temporary restoration. This way, you can repair the faulty pipe while you wait for a professional team to take care of it completely. 

How to Temporarily Fix a Leaking Pipe 


Act Fast

The moment you notice the leak, you should get a bucket or other container. Place it directly under the water spill to keep it from potentially ruining your floor, furniture, etc.

Shut It Down

Then, identify the exact origin of the leak. Once you have it, make sure to avoid wasting water by, if possible, cutting off the supply for the leaky pipe until you get it fixed. 

Deal with the Spillage

As you know, damp areas are a magnet to mold growth. To prevent your home from being infested, be certain to dry the wetness completely as soon as you can. 

Do a Temporary Fix

Now, for the fixing! You just need to clean up the pipe, dry it well and place a generous amount of epoxy putty over it. Let it sit for a while before opening the valve again.
