Concealed water causes big concerns for Burnsville

2/4/2021 (Permalink)

It is surprising how many places water finds to hide in a high-end kitchen. Custom cabinets, built in appliances, and tiled floors extending under all fixtures contain water that drips or leaks. You need a professional team and clever plan to eliminate hidden pockets of water. SERVPRO technicians have the curiosity, experience, and training to locate and rid your home of water lurking where it should not be.

Hoses and pipes snake through your kitchen, and a crack or poorly fitting connector means water removal is in the future of your Burnsville home. You expect plumbing in the walls, but todays ice makers, dishwashers, built-in water dispensers, and main floor laundries cause water to be routed everywhere, often behind or through storage areas. Tight seals between the bases of cabinets and floors hold in water that leaks, seeps, or condenses. Your first clue that you have water pooling under cabinets or appliances might be tell-tale growing dark marks on the ceiling tiles below your kitchen. An "off" smell also warns of water that needs removal, particularly if mold or mildew takes hold. If you cannot find the water causing problems in your home, give the skilled technicians at SERVPRO a try. Trained to detect where water moves from the initial leak, our staff finds the source and devises a plan to remove the water and dry out your structure and fixtures.

Expect our team to pry the kick-plates off the bottom of your cabinetry, locating areas where water collects. Water extractors pull the moisture out, followed by scientifically arranged air movers and dehumidifiers to complete the drying process. We also consider aiming the movers under the subfloor of the kitchen, staging them a level down in your home aiming up. If ceiling tiles are removable, we pop them out to get more air in the proper areas.

The flooring, including the subfloor, needs evaluation as well. Our crew measures moisture levels as well to determine whether drying mats might be appropriate to extract more moisture from above and below the surface. SERVPRO professionals set drying targets to ensure no lingering dampness causes rot or mold damage.

Water removal is a core service offered by SERVPRO of Burnsville/Lakeville. Call for an inspection at (952) 846-4400 if you suspect hidden water damages in your kitchen.
