How SERVPRO Tackles Kitchen Water Damage
There are various ways that water damage can occur inside your home, but one of the most common locations is inside your kitchen. Whether it is caused by the malfunction of a dishwasher, a broken sink, or faulty plumbing, your kitchen can quickly become flooded with water after a small accident or defect. No matter the cause of the damage, it is a comfort to know that professional help is close to your home and available for a call.
Juan Subasta, an employee of SERVPRO of Santa Ana, explains how the water damage happened at their current job site. "The drain failed, causing water damage to the kitchen area and the dining [room.]" Here at SERVPRO, we always prioritize arriving at the remediation site as swiftly as we possibly can. We understand how time-sensitive home damage can be; the faster we can arrive, the smoother our remediation is likely to go.
The water damage left this home with severe damage that needed to be swiftly addressed. Subasta, while explaining how SERVPRO went about creating a solution to the problem, shows the kitchen off. "We did the flood cuts throughout the kitchen. Upon doing the flood cuts, the removal of the lower cabinets had to be done." Cutting away the unsalvageable drywall is essential, so moisture does not wick further up into the walls. Subasta further explained the process of remediation by commenting that "insulation was removed...we placed air movers [and] dehumidifiers to dry out the framings. The floor was not salvageable, so it had to be removed...We placed plastic to contain the area, so dust doesn't affect the rest of the home."
When reflecting on how SERVPRO tries to minimize costs for our customers, Subasta said: "We saved the granite, saved our customer some money by saving the granite [countertop." It is important to us that our customers feel like they're in good hands that care about how expensive a remediation can become. Our goal is always to leave a happy customer behind when we finish a job.
