How Small Leaks can Lead to Big Water Damage Issues for Your Harriman Home

Water Damage How Small Leaks can Lead to Big Water Damage Issues for Your Harriman Home Pipe leaks under a sink can cause damage for months before they are discovered. Contact SERVPRO to assess and then remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Technicians Understand that Water Damage can be Something that Happens Over Time Rather than a Single Event

Small leaks might not seem like a pressing concern for you, but they can certainly cause enough of a problem if left to leak for an extended period continually. It takes only a brief time for water to saturate materials and to seep into sensitive subflooring or through cabinetry under the sink. Soon this water incident in your Harriman home is potentially in need of significant focused restoration work.

When you consider the persistent drip coming from a loose connection under a faucet or in the indoor plumbing somewhere in your house, over time substantial volumes of water can ultimately end up on the floor or into the woodwork of the cabinet storing the hardware for your sink. This water damage in your Harriman home at this point is best handled by restoration specialists for several reasons.

The first of these reasons is to eliminate the possibility of the damage getting worse by ensuring the proper drying measures get taken with the affected areas. In as little as 72 hours, moisture ridden areas can find themselves at risk of mold damages and microbial growth. This poses a risk not just to the structural integrity of the materials it seats into, but also has been linked with potential health effects for those exposed to the colonies. This also requires an entirely different professional team of SERVPRO professionals dedicated specifically to mold remediation.

Another consideration that you should make when opting for professional remediation is the experience that our SERVPRO team has with the work that needs to get done. Whether this ultimately involves removing the irreparably damaged components and replacing them or using concentrated drying efforts with large mats to penetrate into the subflooring, you know you are hiring out for a quality result.

Water damage on a very small scale might not seem like a pressing concern, but it does require prompt action to prevent it from getting worse. You can always rely on our SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties water restoration specialists to help you clean up the mess and thoroughly dry the area. Give us a call today at (865) 986-3015
