Water Damage in Tukwila Kitchen Gets Demo and Rebuild
Tukwila if you endure water damage to your kitchen, let us help save your kitchen.
When a pipe bursts under a sink in a kitchen, the amount of water that spills can do significant damage to the flooring and walls in a short time. Mops and rags only absorb water on the surface and do nothing about any migration that happened into the subfloor or behind baseboards.
SERVPRO technicians received a call to assist a Tukwila home with water damage cleanup in the kitchen. The water pooled in the breakfast area and required extraction using portable pumps.
Tracing the Water Migration Path
The techs use various types of detection equipment to determine moisture and humidity levels behind walls and under floors. This action ensures that no water gets left behind to cause additional issues.
Removal of Damaged Materials
Hardwood flooring has recovery potential through drying, if the mitigation begins quickly enough. The composite wood floor in the kitchen deteriorated quickly after extended exposure to the water. IICRC-certified technicians removed the flooring as it had no restoration prospects and prepped the subfloor for drying. The sheetrock wicked significant amounts of water and required removal down to the studs to open the wall cavity for better airflow.
Complete Drying is the Key
The techs monitor the drying process carefully to ensure that the indoor humidity levels fall below the range for mold spore germination, and it also assists in avoiding musty odors. Once the structure verifies as dry, they clean the surfaces with their proprietary disinfectants, so there is a clean slate to build on.
