Prompt Water Removal at a Gibsonton Home with SERVPRO
Repairing Water Damage from a Gibsonton Roof Leak
Your home's plumbing system is a multiplex network of water supply pipes, vents, and drain pipes. Understanding a plumbing system's fundamentals helps better understand the problems that could occur. A well-designed system delivers water to the different faucets, fixtures, and appliances in your Gibsonton home and efficiently carries away wastewater without clogs. However, the system may develop a malfunction leading to leakage.
The water removal process at Gibsonton homes starts with the basics like locating the problem and fixing the leak. Extraction methods depend on the size of the leak. You need to establish whether you are dealing with just damp floors or several inches of standing water. SERVPRO technicians have experience in managing any size of water loss and respond quickly to mitigate damage.
Common plumbing issues leading to leaks
- Malfunctioning pipe joints
- Corrosion buildup and damage in old water pipes
- Bad seals around appliance line connections
- Pipe overflows or bursts due to clogs and backups
Skilled plumbers help perform necessary repairs to get your plumbing system working well again. However, cleaning up after the leak and drying things out requires professional help as water can cause severe damage.
Extracting the moisture
Mops or clean towels should be enough for flooded areas with just a little moisture exposure. However, suppose the leak has affected multiple rooms? In that case, specialized extraction equipment such as pumps may be necessary for water traveling from the upper to the lower level of your home.
Removing soaked carpets, furniture, and other detachable items from the flooded area is also part of the process. Depending on how much moisture they absorbed, some items may be salvageable. Extracting the moisture alone does not mean the areas are completely dry. SERVPRO sets up dehumidifiers to draw the moisture out of the room.
Other water removal processes
- Extraction with drying mats
- Evaporation with air movers
- Moisture control with drying chambers
