A Leaky Kitchen Sink Can Cause Water Damage in Your Chicago Home

Sometimes a leak and the water damage it can cause might go unnoticed in your home for some time, especially if it is in a spot that isn't out in the open. In your home, when your kitchen sink sprang a leak, you did not notice at first. It dripped water onto the base of the cupboard under it for weeks before you finally noticed the water damage one day when you were looking for certain cleaning supplies. The bottom of the cupboard has bubbled up and swollen from the exposure to the moisture. Furthermore, it has also become discolored.  

At this point, the best thing that you can do to address the water damage in your Chicago home is to call for professional help as soon as possible. Getting remediation experts into your home can ensure that the problem does not get any worse. They can take preventative measures to ensure that microbial growth does not continue under the cupboard, as it is likely it had already begun.  

We train our SERVPRO technicians to use advanced equipment to remediate the damage inside your home quickly. We always try to get to your home as quickly as possible after your call, as we understand how stressful the situation can be for you. At SERVPRO, we pride ourselves on our professionalism and our friendliness. It is always our goal to make remediations as stress-free as possible, and we go the extra mile to make sure you understand what is happening in your home.  

When we arrive at your home, our SERVPRO techs can begin to remediate right away. We can set up equipment that is designed to pull moisture that your cupboard absorbed out of it again. We can set up dehumidifiers, air movers, and ventilation fans. If the water managed to penetrate underneath the cupboard, we can drill a hole and feed small tubes inside, which are designed to blast dry air in a hard-to-reach area. Once SERVPRO is sure that adequate drying has occurred, we can use moisture meters, ensuring that the moisture levels are returned to an acceptable degree.  

If water damage strikes your home, always act quickly. Speak to a representative of SERVPRO of Marquette Park / West Lawn / Ford City by dialing (773) 337-3993. 24/7, we're open and ready to take your call.
