Ask The Experts: Can I Postpone Fixing A Leaky Sink?

12/29/2020 (Permalink)

Everyone has days where they are excessively busy and cannot seem to get a moment to themselves, but the last thing you want to do is to ignore the threat of water damage inside of your home. Leaving a leaking pipe underneath your bathroom sink can eventually cause water damage. Continually forgetting to fix it, and then putting it off when you do remember, can also cause further complications, such as mold and rot. The best thing to do for your home when you find a leak is to fix it immediately. Doing so leaves less room for damage to occur.

Accidents happen, and it is essential that upon discovering water damage inside your home, you take action as soon as possible. Turning off the water in your home so the pipe can no longer leak is the first step. Additionally, calling a professional immediately allows for a smoother remediation process, as water damage is often time-sensitive.

When you call SERVPRO, we always prioritize arriving at your home quickly. From the moment our team receives your call, we begin to organize our team to send your way. Our Estimator can go through the initial inspection with you and explain potential solutions until the rest of our team gets there. Once there, our team begins to work right away.

SERVPRO’s IICRC-certified technicians can bring advanced tools with them to address the water damage in your bathroom. Our goal is to decrease the moisture levels inside to an acceptable amount and to dry out the cupboard under your sink, which has been continually absorbing water. Additionally, we can check for any signs of further damage.

SERVPRO can set up tools such as desiccant dehumidifiers and air movers to draw out moisture and get air flowing. Additionally, we can also set up axial fans to help the process. Using these tools creates an environment that is ideal for evaporation to occur, which is what allows your washroom to dry.

Should your home suffer water damage, always call for help as quickly as possible. Reach out to SERVPRO. It's our goal to return your home to its pre-damaged state.

So call us today! We are faster to any disaster and we are ready to put our experience to work for you!
