Our Technicians Understand that Overflowing Water Can Quickly Start to Cause Damage in Your Home

When you think of all of the things in your West Monroe home that could present a water emergency, many people consider items like the appliances that are water fed like the washing machine or hot water tank. While these are sometimes culprits to this kind of chaos, your air conditioning window units are an even likelier culprit in this humid and often hot environment typical of the area. 

The trouble with window units for your AC in your house is that you might not even be home when the malfunction and subsequent water damage occurs in West Monroe. The condensation and holding of water inside these appliances are pretty standard, and there is not a lot of internal components to keep this same water from pouring into your house. While this might only be a finite amount, it undoubtedly is enough to cause significant problems to your flooring and walls if it does not get caught immediately. 

If you come home to a disaster like this, you might have the instinct to start cleaning up the mess yourself, but these conventional cleaning and drying efforts are likely not going to be enough to address the full scope of the damage. SERVPRO utilizes thermal imagery in our inspections to see the presence of moisture and dampness in areas beyond what our eyes can decipher. 

If the problem gets addressed quickly enough, your water damage could get resolved using specialized equipment like our large drying mats, which penetrate underneath your flooring material to dry the area thoroughly. We have an injectidry system that uses multiple entry points to move air through this space and dry out any lingering moisture for internal wall damages. The objective (beyond merely restoring the damage) of drying these spaces is to prevent compounding damages like mold growth. 

Water damage might present itself in multiple ways throughout your life. Still, there are plenty of instances where professional restoration services are the best call to ensure that the cleanup gets done thoroughly enough. You can always trust in the dedication and experience of SERVPRO of Monroe / West Monroe to help you through any disaster you face. Give us a call today at (318) 345-5121.
