Maintenance Checks on Water-Using Appliances Can Prevent Water Damage to Residences in Stockton
SERVPRO Can Mitigate Damages Caused by Unwanted Water Leaks
Outside sources such as overflowing creeks and rivers near Stockton might come to mind when people think of water damage. However, most homes that suffer from the effects of water do so because of malfunctioning appliances.
Stockton residents help protect their homes from water damage when they know their appliances' setup. Many require water and typically perform as we expect them to function. The amount of water that can invade your home after an appliance's hose slips loose or cracks open can number in the hundreds of gallons. When this happens, you need a professional company that can handle both the extraction of the standing water and the task of drying out your home. At SERVPRO, our employees are dedicated professionals that many earn certificates in Applied Structural Drying (ASD) and WST Water Damage Restoration, meaning they arrive at your home prepared and capable of performing the work necessary.
Our job is not only to remove the offensive water but also to restore your home's interior. We want to leave it just as you remember it, "Like it never even happened." Our Green Fleet includes trucks mounted with large and powerful pumps. These submersible units can quickly extract the water covering your floors. Rapid water extraction helps stop the water from spreading further and preventing additional absorption of moisture by the materials in your home.
Water seeps into anything porous almost immediately, requiring the use of heat, increased air currents, and machines to dehumidify your residence's interior environment. The air absorbs substantial amounts of water, which can then find its way to other areas of your home that otherwise would remain unaffected by the incident.
We work hard to get your floors dry again and prevent any undesired effects such as warping or cupping, which can become permanent requiring expensive replacement. Our SERVPRO techs can place special floor mats that not only increase the heat to the area, but they also extract the water within carpet layers or tongue and groove flooring joints to salvage these costly materials. While carpet restoration experts can rarely clean and restore carpeting adequately after it suffers through a flood from the outdoors, the chances significantly increase when water comes only from an internal source.
SERVPRO of Stockton restores homes in the areas around Ortega and Lincoln Village after events leading to water damage and other disasters. Call us at (209) 477-3090 for both large and small problems involving your home.
