Fast Water Removal Limits Damage to Raleigh Kitchen
SERVPRO can help you limit your damage.
During cleanup from water damage in Oak City homes, the extraction phase is one of the most crucial. The reason is that the more water we can pull out of carpeting, furnishings, or the structure, the faster the drying phase goes.
SERVPRO answered a call from a homeowner in Raleigh with water damage, who needed water removal in their kitchen area from a supply line leak under the sink. During the initial phone call, our technician verified with the homeowner she turned off the water and put down towels to help absorb the water until we arrived.
We arrived on-site a short time later and immediately deployed our portable pumps to extract any water left. We carefully scope water loss events precisely to ensure we remove all excess water in the room. Our moisture detection equipment showed water migrated behind the baseboards, and the hollow area under the cabinet showed elevated moisture levels.
To let maximum airflow under the cabinet area, our SERVPRO technicians removed the baseboards and positioned the air movers attached to the Injecti-Dry to direct air into the interior wall and cabinet spaces. We have different types of dehumidifying equipment that we use in tandem with the air movers to port out the moisture the air movers bring to the surface.
Once the kitchen was dry, we used our probes to confirm there were no remaining areas of excessive moisture. Mold is always a concern after a water loss. By lowering the moisture levels and following up with thorough hand cleaning with our professional-grade antibacterial and antifungal solutions, we inhibit the potential for mold to become an issue.
After completion of the water loss mitigation, our SERVPRO technicians gave the homeowner a list of the actions we took for remediation of the damage from the water, and we made a list of the necessary repairs the homeowner would need to have completed for restoring the home to its preloss condition.
