A Small Kitchen Leak Can Lead to Big Problems If Not Addressed
Kitchens and bathrooms tend to be the two most common rooms in a hone when it comes to water damage from leaks or floods. While the first reaction may be to grab a mop and clean up the mess, the water damage you don’t see is what can cause the most damage. Here’s why you should contact a water remediation pro if you experience water damage in your kitchen.
What happens when water floods your kitchen
When your home's kitchen faucet, sink or drain leaks, water damage can develop behind it, running seeping into a cabinet's interior, down the back of the wall, or underneath it into the subfloor. This can lead to problems with microbes growing out of control, causing mold growth and potentially musty odors. Water never disappears on its own, and surface water is only the visible issue at hand. Even if something dries out after a spill, that water merely went into the air, only to reappear elsewhere in the form of condensation. Until then it stays suspended as increased humidity in the house, which may result in musty odors. All of these circumstances can lead to additional damage if not appropriately addressed by a professional.
