Recovering From Water Damage To Your Edgewood Residence
Appliances Are Often the Culprits Causing Water Leaks--Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Drying
While many disasters can threaten your Edgewood home, perhaps one of the most typical of these potential issues is a water emergency. While this could include natural disasters and flash flooding situations, often it boils down to aging materials in your house and homeowner errors that attribute to damages that require professional restoration.
Perhaps one of the most common issues that present water damage to your Edgewood residence would be large appliances like your water heater. While everyone is aware that appliances draw more power and cost you more on monthly utilities as they get too old, it often gets disregarded that the components within them that keep tight seals for water are aging and degrading as well. Over time, small and seemingly insignificant leaks can turn disastrous, spewing high volumes of water on the floor surrounding the appliance.
Once the water has gotten successfully stopped from the valve attached to the appliance itself, you are left to contend with a significant water emergency that requires your immediate attention. The longer that water can seep into flooring and walls, the more damage that it ultimately causes to these components as well as the structural integrity of your entire home.
While extraction might be a necessity for the situation, our SERVPRO team assesses the full scope of the damage throughout both the immediate area and adjoining walls and floors. For areas that cannot get seen easily, thermal imagery gets used to determine the farthest reaches of the water damage. Equipment like our drying mats can penetrate deep into floors to dry up the area, while our injectidry system can remove any moisture from inside of affected walls. For basic drying, a combination of wet vacs for spot extraction and air movers for moisture removal work to rid the area of remaining water.
When you are battling older appliances, even the best of routine maintenance might not be enough. If your appliance decides to leave you a water emergency to battle, trust the SERVPRO of Conway / Holden Heights restoration specialists to help you clean up the mess. We can be reached 24/7 at (407) 985-3200.
