SERVPRO Helps with Hidden Leak Water Removal from Stockton Homes 

In many cases, when a water spill occurs, it is easy to address it by stopping the source and extracting the water pooling on the floor or other surfaces. However, some water loss incidents can be challenging if the leaking water is contained out of sight. We offer professional water removal that can help when you have hidden leaks.

Signs of a Hidden Water Leak

In many cases, water removal procedures from Stockton homes start too late if a hidden leak is the cause of the problem. However, it is possible to avoid such outcomes by checking for early signs of hidden leaks and seeking assistance from a professional. Some of the early signs include:

  • Unexplainably high water bills
  • Wall and floor damage
  • High humidity levels
  • Bad odor from mold or rotting materials

Non-Invasive Water Leak Confirmation

Resolving hidden leaks requires demolition to open up enclosed spaces such as walls, cabinets, or even floors. Since the location of the leak is not known beforehand, it is not a good idea to start such demolition randomly or by relying on guesswork. Our SERVPRO technicians use non-invasive methods to locate the problem areas first. We have thermal cameras, which utilize temperature differences to identify wet areas. Therefore, we can identify the leak source and the area where the water collects without doing any demolition. We also have other equipment, including borescopes that help with the inspection.

Removal and Restoration

After identifying the problem area, there is a need to fix the leak, remove any standing water damage and dry materials. Our SERVPRO technicians perform controlled demolition steps to remove drywall, insulation, and other materials. We also inspect the plumbing lines to establish the extent of the problem. We fix minor issues, but major problems such as replacement of pipes require a professional plumber. Once the source issue is addressed, we replace unsalvageable materials, cleanup, and perform other restoration steps necessary after the damage, making it, "Like it never even happened."

A hidden leak can cause unending problems. Call SERVPRO of Stockton at (209) 477-3090 to help. We are available 24/7.
