Are You Making These Kinds of Water Damage Mistakes in Your Gilbert Home?
Leaking Fixtures Could Allow Water Damage to Gilbert Homes
Indoor plumbing has revolutionized the world and is a staple for every Gilbert home constructed over nearly the past century. Surprisingly enough, many of the older homes still feature the same fixtures, connections, and piping used in the original construction. While this might provide a vintage feel and attest to the craftsmanship of plumbing in days gone by, it also presents an ever-present threat for adverse conditions or pressure differences to strain elbows and joints until leaks form. A steady leak unseen can cause widespread damages to your home.
While you might not be able to identify the full measure of water damage to your Gilbert home from a steady leak from your plumbing or its fixtures, once you recognize an issue, it is likely that an even greater area has gotten affected in wall cavities where the bulk of the piping is hidden. When you encounter water damage like this, you need effective mitigation and restoration solutions that can happen as soon as you need them. That is why our SERVPRO rapid response team remains available 24/7 to address emergencies as they happen to any property within our service area.
We have advanced technology to help us identify leaks and moisture pockets in areas difficult to assess without demolition or controlled tear out. With thermal imagery cameras, we can determine where damp areas are inside of wall cavities and into other materials to designate the best locations for drying equipment like air movers and dehumidifiers. Severe moisture pockets could require the use of injectidry systems that feed hot air directly into these cavities to expedite the drying process.
Aging pipes in your home can ultimately cause problems when the wear and tear catch up to the weakest connection points. No matter how long pipes have been in service, our SERVPRO of Gilbert water restoration technicians can help you to restore the damage they can cause when things do go wrong. Give our experienced professionals a call anytime that you notice water damage by calling (480) 558-7620.
