How A Broken Washing Machine Can Cause Water Damage To Your Lakeland Home
SERVPRO Technicians Have the Training & Experience to restore your home from water damage.
Washing machines are an essential appliance, but they're anything but wanted when they begin to cause water damage inside of your home. A washer that has sprung a leak inside your combination laundry room and bathroom can damage the tile flooring and the base of the walls. Sometimes finances are not in a place that allows you to call a plumber immediately. However, trying to fix the problem temporarily by just mopping up the excess water from every load is not a wise decision.
Allowing the water to leak onto your floor during every use of the washing machine can cause water damage inside your Lakeland bathroom, regardless of if you clean it up. Moping it up with a towel doesn't take away the exposure to moisture, instead of a puddle of water, there is now a wet towel there. The moisture has not gone anywhere. When an appliance in your home is leaking, it is wise to call for help before it becomes a problem. Once water damage has set it, do not give time for further damages to set in, such as microbial growth. Call for professional remediation services.
SERVPRO always strives to reach your residence as swiftly as possible. Once there, our IICRC-certified technicians can begin to set up equipment that can help draw the water out of your floor and walls. Allowing water damage to set into tile-flooring can cause cracks and separations in the tile. Thus, getting to work as soon as possible can prevent this from occurring.
SERVPRO uses advanced technology such as ventilation fans, air movers, and desiccant dehumidifiers to address water damage. Using these tools in conjunction creates an environment that is ideal for drawing moisture away from your belongings and causing it to evaporate. This process, depending on how severe the damage is, can take up to a week.
The last thing that SERVPRO can do for you before going is to provide you with the number for a professional plumber. Allowing the washer to keep leaking can allow for water damage to occur once more.
