Removing Water from Attic Flooring in Santa Ana Homes

Cooling Santa Ana homes throughout the better part of the year is a focal point of comfortable living in Orange County. Considering that the residential areas in and around the city are home to several million residents, effective space management for constructed homes is vital. As such, air conditioning units have often gotten installed in unfinished basements instead of attached to the exterior of the property on the ground floor.  

With a condensation-generating appliance upstairs in the attic, the threat of water damage to Santa Ana homes is more probable than many property owners might believe. There are multiple reasons that a larger air conditioning unit could cause water damage to your house. Failure to recognize this problem quickly can allow leaking water to spread throughout the attic area and even into the floors below.

The most common reason that air conditioning units in the attic can begin to leak to the point of causing water damage in the house is a clogged condensate drain line. If this drain gets blocked with dirt, debris, or anything else, the water has nowhere to go but the floor surrounding the unit. While this is not an immediately devastating concern, steady and consistent use of the air conditioning unit continues to produce more water that leaks out onto the flooring.

Our SERVPRO team can arrive with sophisticated detection tools to help identify the moisture threats that exist and work on drying them out. While fixing the issues with the air conditioners are the top priority, we must utilize specialized tools like drying mats and the positive pressure cavity drying systems to pull water from the planks of any wood flooring before decay and degradation begin.

As challenging as it might initially be to identify a leak in your air conditioning unit that threatens structural elements in your home, our SERVPRO of Santa Ana South team can help. Our infrared imagery and probing tools can indicate the severity of the damage and work to both dry up the damage and repair wood supports, rafters, and plank affected by persistent moisture exposure.
