What Comes With Water Damage in Pinellas County Kitchens?
SERVPRO Technicians Dry Out Your Kitchen to Help Prevent a Mold Infestation
Because kitchen mishaps may be a regular, day-to-day occurrence, it can sometimes be difficult to tell when an accident can cause more significant water damage problems in your Pinellas County home. Kitchen areas are among the most common origins of light and moderate water damage, as many different appliances can malfunction and cause lasting damage to your home. While not every spill and puddle require an advanced restoration procedure to clean up, SERVPRO can help for the rare cases that take more than a mop and a rag to deal with.
While flooding from an interior water source may be a rare form of water damage in Pinellas County, the fact that it can come from so many different sources keeps SERVPRO aware and ready to handle these situations. Sinks, washing machines, refrigerators, and other water lines can rupture and let loose tens to hundreds of gallons of water in your home before a professional arrives to handle the situation. When this happens, getting your home dried by professionals should be a top priority to eliminate risks of mold damage and further destruction of materials that come with less-efficient cleanup methods.
Over time, leaks can cause extensive and costly damage to areas in and around your kitchen. Even a slow drip can feed a mold colony underneath a fridge or sink cabinet, and with so many water lines around, leaks are bound to happen at some point. Be sure to check in on water sources that are not in regular use for signs of damage and call us before more damage can happen.
Kitchens are uniquely at risk of developing other types of damage alongside the water-based problems. Flammable objects and electrical appliances can start fires with excess water in the area, and preexisting mold problems can recover and grow with more water in the environment. SERVPRO excels in handling the fallout from these incidents and can manage a complex project under one banner.
