Leaking plumbing under a kitchen sink Water drips lead to water damage in a Houma kichen cabinet. Don't Watie! Call SERVPRO

Savvy Houma Homeowners Use SERVPRO for Water Removal

It is easy to ignore a slow dripping leak under the kitchen sink from the supply line to the dishwasher. It frequently seems like only a humidity slick at the bottom of the cabinet. It is not a lot of water, so a homeowner might think that simply wiping up the spill is sufficient. Houma homeowners know, however, that any type of water damage requires investigation and action.

What Are Some of the Real Problems When a Water Leak Occurs in Your Houma Kitchen?

Wiping up a spill from a leaking pipe rarely resolves water seepage problems.  The hidden drip grows. The water quietly pools under the sink, becomes a puddle, and flows onto the linoleum kitchen floor.  Only after you slip on the slick in front of the sink, do you open the cabinet door.  There you discover a large puddle and a very wet back wall inside the cabinet. You decide it is now time to call SERVPRO, a nationwide company with 50 plus years’ expertise in water extraction and water removal

How Is the Damp Wall Behind the Sink and in the Cabinet Dried?

SERVPRO’s certified technicians can ensure that the moisture content of the walls and cabinets are restored to standard levels. The team can take measurements with moisture meters and infrared cameras. They can utilize a variety of equipment to get rid of the water and dry out walls and floors, thus preventing potential secondary water damage.  This equipment may include:                                                                                                                           

  • Light wands and wet/vacs
  • Squeegees and mops
  • Air movers to expedite evaporation
  • Dehumidifiers to capture the water vapor

Removal and extraction by these experts make it seem, "Like it never even happened."
