Water Damage Water Damage Cleanup For Your Pine Island Home After Dishwasher Malfunction Water damage from a malfunctioning dishwasher can cause quite a bit of a problem in your Pine Island home quickly.

Water Damage Cleanup

One of the daily conveniences you may have in your Pine Island home is a dishwasher. It helps out a great deal in keeping your dishes cleaned and keeping you from standing over the sink all day, especially in a busy household. However, dishwasher hoses and lines can spring a leak, or even blow out. Many times, this happens in the middle of a wash cycle, resulting in your kitchen being flooded with many gallons of water at once.

Water damage from a malfunctioning dishwasher can cause quite a bit of a problem in your Pine Island home quickly. Where a few seconds ago there was no water, there are now many gallons, which need to be removed quickly to avoid additional damage. Situations like these are why our SERVPRO staff are always available to help you out. SERVPRO has the training and advanced equipment to remove the water and dry your home back out.

Restoring your home to pre-damage conditions after a water emergency involves us removing the standing water, decontaminating the area, and drying your home back out. We have to act fast, as standing water and moisture make the perfect environment for mold and bacteria to grow.

SERVPRO techs use pumps and vacuums to remove as much standing water from your home as possible. The kind of equipment needed depends on how severe the damage is. Water removal is begun as soon as possible to prevent the bacteria and mold from growing. Once we remove all the water and any porous surfaces are vacuumed, we can start the drying and dehumidification process. It is an essential step in remediation to clear up any moisture that remains after water removal. We monitor the drying process daily to ensure proper drying of your home. When everything is dried and sanitized, we may need to replace some building materials such as drywall and flooring that was saturated.

SERVPRO of Cape Coral works to ensure that your home in St. James City, Diplomat, or Burnt Store is thoroughly dried back out after a water damage emergency. Just reach out to us at (239) 573-5911 as soon as there is an issue, any time of day or night.
