Kitchen Sink Water Cleanup in a Teaneck Home
You Want The Professionals By Your Side In The Event of Any Water Incidents in Your Teaneck Home
Whether the source is a damaged pipe or accidentally leaving the sink running, leaks and overflows can cause significant damage to kitchen floors. Vinyl flooring is especially vulnerable to water-related disasters and can lose its adhesion to the floor after some exposure to moisture. Worse still, this water can penetrate subflooring without your knowledge and cause further structural damage.
If your Teaneck residence needs water cleanup that is fast-acting and precise, IICRC technicians at SERVPRO are happy to lend a helping hand. SERVPRO prides itself on having over 1,700 locations in the United States and Canada, making its franchises positioned so that they can always respond quickly to disasters and restore homes to their preloss conditions.
Preventing Kitchen Sink Leaks
- Perform regular checkups. You do not need to be a professional to detect issues even if they require an expert to fix them. Look closely at your pipes for abnormalities every so often to catch small leaks before they become big problems.
- Insulate exterior pipes. Even hot climates can deal with frozen pipes occasionally, which can cause them to burst and bring gallons of water into your home.
- Keep storage areas clean. If the cupboard under your sink is littered with haphazardly-placed cleaning products, consider organizing them in such a way that you can easily see the pipes and the area underneath them to detect moisture.
- Keep the little things in mind. Something as simple as an old fitting or loose washer can cause a leak. If you see water dripping from the pipes, shut off the water to that area and get a professional to maintain your pipes as soon as possible.
SERVPRO Quickly Extracts Water
SERVPRO can quickly prepare your kitchen for extraction and drying using portable, back-mounted extractors. These extractors can lift 140 inches of water and are highly effective for preventing the migration of water damage to other areas in your home. The toe-kick can be removed and have small holes drilled in it to dry inside of kitchen cabinets. A polyethylene drying chamber can be constructed to contain the drying area and accelerate the moisture removal process with air movers and dehumidifiers.
