Water Damage in a Raleigh Home's Kitchen or Pantry
SERVPRO Can Detect Hidden Water Damage in Your Kitchen
Storing your cookware in an easily-accessible location in your Raleigh residence helps make meal preparation a smooth process. Sometimes, when in a rush, it might seem unimportant if these items remain damp when you put them away. This dampness can accumulate, though, and cause problems in your home if you allow this to happen repeatedly.
Raleigh homes with water damage can suffer other consequences. Microbial growth is almost impossible without an abundance of moisture. Other pests, such as rodents and insects, find homes with damp areas much more inviting than they do drier homes. Removing the damaged areas can make your home less likely to succumb to invasions by pests in the future.
At SERVPRO, we install dehumidifiers that remove any problematic moisture from the air and keep it at a comfortable level for you and your family. Complete dryness is not healthy, either, so we use models that you can adjust for your comfort. We recommend for you to check kitchen and pantry shelves to ensure their placement remains level to prevent moisture from running back toward the wall and traveling downward.
Any visible damage that seems minor can hide severely damaged areas, so we check these areas with high-tech devices to reveal where elevated moisture accumulation exists. Water pipes that leak remain one of the most common reasons for water damage, but condensation on appliances can also become problematic. Regardless of the source, we can locate it and put a stop to the problem before it worsens.
For water damage that already affects your kitchen, we first remove damaged materials and then clean other areas of grit and grime that seems to build up in these types of areas. These locations can include behind your sink and underneath the cabinet, under appliances where mop water often seeps, or around windowsills. After completion of our work, your kitchen and pantry areas can function once again as they should, “Like it never even happened.” We know that your kitchen is a focal point in your family's life, and we want to make it a clean place to prepare food and eat meals for everyone in your home again.
