Leaks of Any Size Eventually Lead to Water Damage in Pine Island Residences
A Small Water Damage Problem Could Result in a Huge Disaster
Homes in Pine Island often contain the latest in modern appliances and other amenities. Many of these, such as dishwashers, ice makers, and others rely on a steady feed of water. Most, but all, depend on plastic or metal clamps to keep hoses tightly attached and drip-free. Others implement twist-on tighteners that may or may not require plumbers' tape to keep them sufficiently secure.
Property owners in Pine Island can prevent many issues with water damage from occurring in their homes by checking that water lines' connections to appliances remain securely attached. It is a good idea to also inspect the air conditioners in your residence. If clogs develop inside drain lines, the pans or trays inside can easily overflow and create damage inside walls below the unit. Similar situations occur with dehumidifiers. When homeowners place appliances' backs next to the wall, water dripping from loosened connections can seep into the joint between the wall and the floor. This moisture can travel quite a distance, either on the surface of materials or after wicking into them.
The technicians from SERVPRO locate drips that might otherwise remain undetected before beginning the restoration process. These small drips can continue for months before residents notice any signs of water damage. Microbial infestation is one sign that definitively indicates water intrusion of some sort exists in the home. Finding mold growth or warped floors, discolored areas on walls or other signs of decay means a call to a professional restoration and mitigation company like SERVPRO can protect your home from more extensive damage in the future.
We mitigate existing damage after we ensure that no more water can enter the area to cause the additional destruction of materials. Our infrared sensors indicate the presence of misplaced water, allowing us to know when leaks persist. Checking hoses and water feed lines to ensure they are attached correctly without any kinks or bends in them helps prevent future problems, but at times, appliances require additional work. We discuss such situations with you before calling in one of our licensed partners to perform the needed repair.
