Water Damage Restoration In Your Dallas Kitchen

Some plumbing leaks in your Dallas home develop in areas which are easily noticeable, like the bathroom floor by the toilet or the area around the faucet. However, other leaks are much less recognizable. One place that is more difficult to see a leak is underneath your kitchen sink. These types of leaks can go unnoticed for a long time, and by then you have a good deal of damage.

You may open your cabinet underneath the kitchen sink in your home several times a day, but never more than a few seconds at a time and a leak is the last thing on your mind. By the time you do discover a leak and water damage in your Dallas home, the cabinet can already have sustained quite a bit of damage, plus there could even be mold growth. SERVPRO is always ready to help you when you discover a water damage emergency with our expertise and professional tools.

There are several plumbing components under your sink which can assist in developing a leak. Your water supply lines and valves are one such culprit. Unlike other parts under the sink, these parts are under pressure at all times. If a connection gets loose or there is a puncture in a water line, water leaks under your sink even when the faucet isn’t on.

Drying walls and floors under or behind cabinetry can sometimes be difficult. Walls behind cabinets can take longer to dry with the different layers of cabinet backing and drywall. If needed, SERVPRO techs may need to drill holes in the cabinet back to allow for air circulation. Forgetting underneath the cabinet, we may need to remove the toe kick and treat it with the appropriate biocide and utilize a vent system so dry air can be forced into the cavity. After the area is dry, we can replace this piece of the cabinet.

Leaks can also develop if you have a handheld sprayer attached to the kitchen sink. The water line for this can crack, and when the leak is low enough on the line, water drips into your cabinet below. Over time, your drain pipes can also develop a leak if they have corroded. Lastly, if the P-trap under your sink becomes clogged, it can cause water to build up to your drains and create a leak.

SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas can assist you in restoring your kitchen in Cockrell Hills, Kessler, or Oak Cliff when your sink has a water leak. Once you realize there is an issue, call us at (214) 463-5880 so we can quickly come and help you get everything back in order.

Restoring Your Water Damaged Ceiling and Walls in Dallas 

If your property has a leaking roof, it is a matter of time before significant water damage problems show up. For instance, the water might find its way through the drywall and baseboard into the cabinet area or the walls. It is essential to work with professionals who use specialized equipment to remove the water and dry such areas. We all know that water does not require much space to penetrate through places, so you have to act promptly to prevent your Dallas property from experiencing avoidable destruction.  

Not addressing water damage in your Dallas home can cause mold to begin to grow.  A combination of mold and stagnant water decreases the chance of saving and restoring your possessions.  Our SERVPRO technicians use moisture sensors to check whether there is moisture in the wall cavities or ceiling area. Depending on the situation, we may use a penetrating or non-penetrating moisture sensors.  

We can then drill holes into the walls to drain the water. To speed up drying, we at intervals insert heater drying systems into the holes. Such systems emit hot airflow which helps to dry wet surfaces. Usually, our SERVPRO technicians remove the baseboard moldings before the drying process starts, and re-install it at the end of the process. If an odor problem has already developed in the building, we remove the odor-causing substances and perform deodorization to neutralize such elements.  

Irrespective of the size of the incident, our SERVPRO team works hand in hand with your insurance provider to make the claim process simple. We achieve that by recording essential details and discussing with the insurance adjuster when necessary. We also understand the importance of letting our customers know everything about the procedures we use during the restoration process. All our operations meet the local and state standards.  

When your residential or commercial property experiences a water damage incident, call SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas to know your options. We offer cleaning and restoration services at any time of the day, call (214) 463-5880 to work with our experienced technicians.
