Plumbing Problems Can Cause Water Damage

9/22/2022 (Permalink)

If your dishwasher or garbage disposal springs a leak, you can expect water damage within cabinets and across your flooring in addition to compromised plumbing. Areas below your kitchen or wet bar can also sustain damage including soaked walls and ceilings. SERVPRO can repair the leak and begin the recovery process within hours of contacting us and we can be reached any time, day or night. When you place your plumbing problems in our hands, we act fast. By assessing the situation and making an efficient plan we can save you from mopping or dealing with unpleasant odors and have you back in your home as soon as possible.

Dirty dishwater or food debris can swiftly contaminate clean water. Our fast response can often reduce your water damage to a mere moisture problem, which is a straightforward issue we can resolve quickly. If the affected areas are saturated with gray water and full of decaying food, microbial growth can begin very quickly. Our technicians are trained to follow the water trail. After the source has been alleviated, they evaluate where the plumbing leak may have migrated so that you are not surprised by additional damage. Once we have completed our inspection, we devise a plan that repairs, cleans, and dries out all affected areas to prepare for the final touches that bring your house back to its preloss condition.

We extract any standing water and follow proper protocol to clean and dry out cabinetry. Our SERVPRO staff is trained to remove moisture without harming hardwood or laminated under sink cupboards. The tile, wood, or laminate flooring in your kitchen also needs attention; it will be inspected carefully for leakage into the subfloor or ceiling below. While the humidity is reduced, airflow and gentle heat application can dry out flooring and the structures underneath with as little residual damage as possible. Effectively completing these steps reflects the up to date, IICRC training that each of our technicians complete before entering your home. Reversing the effects of water damage can rarely be mitigated with do-it-yourself techniques and we are ready to lend our expertise to make sure it is done correctly.

If your kitchen appliances fail call SERVPRO of Rancho Cordova at 916.251.7963.
