A Leaky Pipe Can Lead To Widespread Water Damage In Your Ft. Myers Home

6/22/2018 (Permalink)

Time is of the essence when pipes burst. Our SERVPRO team can respond immediately and take care of your water damage emergency.

Leaky Pipes Can Lead To A Big Water Damage Problem In Your House

A dripping pipe might not seem like that considerable of a problem for your Fort Myers home, but there is a clear indication from its presence that something is in the early stages of going very wrong. With the slightest influx of pressure through this line, this small leak could provide enough disturbance to separate or rupture this joint of plumbing completely. What you face now is a higher volume of water which can spread through a wide area of this level of your home in a short period.

While you work quickly to get this supply of water shut down from flowing through this network of pipes, unfortunately, the water damages have already occurred for the most part to your Fort Myers residence. Overcoming them now means working as efficiently as possible to pull up the pooled water and to dry the area thoroughly. Failure to remove all of the lingering moisture could allow for unsettling occurrences like mold growth.

From the moment that our experienced SERVPRO technicians arrive at your home, we work quickly to assess the full scope of the damage and determine what equipment we need to restore your home back to original condition. Once we have a plan in place, our professionals set out to repair the damage to the source of the water damage, and remove any unsalvageable building material to get later replaced.

Extraction is not always a necessity, but this would be among the first steps taken. Drying plays a critical role in the restoration process, because failure to clear out all the dampness, moisture and saturated materials can lead to worsening structural damages or microbial growth that extends the time for restoration.
