A Simple Plan for West Monroe Water Damage Remediation

4/14/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage commonly affects bathrooms. Should your home's bathroom have excess water, contact team SERVPRO for water removal.

When Bathrooms Get Overly Wet, Cabinetry can Sustain Water Damage in West Monroe

SERVPRO's goal after any event that involves water damage is to make everything “Like it never even happened.” again, as quickly as possible. This cuts down on interruptions to our customers' daily routines and helps keep things running smoothly.

The places where you store things inside your home's bathroom can also sustain water damage in West Monroe. This can come from a slow leak in plumbing fixtures or from a broken pipe that suddenly drenches everything in the area. Cabinets notoriously hold water behind their structures, between their backs an the wall, allowing any present microbes to multiply quickly. SERVPRO specialists can help prevent secondary water damage by mitigating the situation rapidly.

Because we partner with our customers during the restoration of water damage, we include them in the decisions we need to make. One of these involves making small changes in the structures, including the backs of cabinetry. We use similar techniques to when we need to dry out the interior of walls and ceilings. Whenever we make such changes, we do so in as small and insignificant manner as possible.

To dry the area inside enclosed areas, we often must drill holes to allow air to pass through. Before doing this, however, we inform our customers that our equipment requires such alterations. We also advise the homeowner of the steps we plan to take afterward, to hide these places. Under cabinetry, these holes do not create a significant blemish, but patching them up after we finish prevents future problems.

While the holes remain open, we use flexible tubing to force air into the area. This rapidly dries the area and removes the water. Getting the interior of the cabinet dry also happens, and keeps cabinet drawers and doors from losing their finishes. Warping of more fragile wood products saves our customers significant amounts of money, an additional benefit of working with IICRC-certified water damage restoration specialists.
