Water Damage From A Bathroom Leak In Your Phoenix Home
Water Damage From A Bathroom Leak
When water begins leaking from your bathtub or shower in your Phoenix home, it can create damage to the ceiling in the room underneath and to framing, even if you do not see any signs of it in the bathroom itself. These damaging leaks can come from fixture drains or the water supply plumbing inside the wall. Faucets and plumbing valves also leak, and can easily go unnoticed for long periods of time.
When you have a water damage situation like this in your Phoenix home, it has to be addressed right away to prevent even more damage from occurring. It is best to use the help of professionals such as our crew at SERVPRO to help you with the cleanup and repairs, as we are thoroughly trained and have the right equipment to take care of the job.
Once we have removed any excess water, we need to begin drying the structure immediately. Warm, dehumidified air is blown into any cavities where water seeped in to expedite the drying process and guard against the growth of mold.
Moisture content is checked on a daily basis with moisture meters, including penetrating and non-penetrating types. Hygrometers to measure the moisture in the air and hydro sensors to give the moisture content of porous materials like carpeting are used as well, plus snake cameras so SERVPRO staff have a visual moisture confirmation in any confined areas like under cabinets and wall cavities.
Other areas of the structure which were affected are set up with air movers and dehumidifiers. We also contain the area to minimize the volume of air being dried and expediting the drying process. These machines are monitored daily to ensure proper and fast drying of your home and are also moved around the room as needed. All affected areas are also cleaned and sanitized when drying is complete.
SERVPRO of East Phoenix understands that during a water disaster like this, it can be stressful to see your home in Arcadia, Tempe, or Biltmore in such a state. We work quickly, but efficiently, to get your home back to its usual condition when you call us at (602) 507-6163.
