Can Consumers Minimize Water Damage After a Leak in Loudon – SERVPRO
Consumers experience water leaks in their Loudon homes from leaky pipes, overflowing sinks, and faulty appliances that can cause additional damage if the water is not removed quickly. A leak under a sink is often missed until consumers notice a strong, musty odor. If a sink overflows, the water spreads across the floor, seeping into joints on the floor and spaces under cabinets. Connecting hoses to dishwashers and laundry equipment can burst, distributing hundreds of gallons of water into your home.
SERVPRO can help with water clean-up and water damage restoration in Loudon homes. Our response is less than four hours from your call, and we deploy equipment to extract water from cavities under cabinets and from hardwood floors. Our weighted water extractors can remove the excess water if the water has spread to carpeted floors. Responding quickly and removing the water can prevent further secondary damage from water, causing wood products to absorb moisture and begin swelling.
If you notice a strong, musty odor emanating from under the sink, there is a good chance there is a mold infestation, and the cabinets are soaked with water. SERVPRO can investigate and prepare recommendations regarding the best approach to remove the mold and dry the area. Mold can cause health effects, and consumers should not hesitate to request help eliminating mold.
There are a variety of steps consumers and homeowners can take to reduce the risk of water damage from leaks and overflows as well as mold damage from longer-term leaks:
- Check under sinks and all visible plumbing for leaks and extensive condensation
- Check dishwasher laundry machine hoses for cracks and replace if needed
- Never leave a room with water flowing into a sink or tub. Turn the taps off first.
