Water Damage To Your Home or Business Is Not Your Job To Fix - It's SERVPRO's

6/27/2022 (Permalink)

Water loss incidents can occur from many different sources at your Bourbonnais business or residence. Weather related events contribute to many occurrences but also aging plumbing plays a contributing factor. Some older homes and businesses in the area may have metal piping throughout the property, which can begin to degrade and erode over time, especially when exposed to higher mineral elements in the public water system such as iron and manganese. These minerals can have a damaging effect on older pipes when sediment builds up around connections, bends, and fixtures.

Once this situation has manifested itself, water damage can proliferate through leaks in the weakest portions of the plumbing. These can be challenging to ascertain as moisture and dampness can affect a broad area. To prevent excessive tear out and replacement once you have encountered water damage, you can reach out to the SERVPRO of Kankakee County professionals for fast and effective restoration and repair.

Our Professional team that arrives promptly at your home or business is equipped with detection technology to identify leaks in the plumbing behind the walls and identify the full scope of the water damage that your home or business has sustained throughout the time that the pipe has been leaking water. Our auditory equipment can help us to hear behind drywall to determine the location of the problem only to remove portions of wall required for us to repair the damaged plumbing and begin drying efforts effectively.

To better allocate our drying equipment, we utilize thermal imagery cameras which non-invasively identify moisture pockets behind walls of your home or business to determine where focused drying efforts occur to remove the dampness present. If the damage is severe enough, SERVPRO of Kankakee County technicians might also implement our injectidry system to introduce heated air through wall cavities to dry them efficiently before secondary effects like mold growth can occur.

While water damage might happen from a variety of sources, clean up and drying efforts need to begin promptly to prevent excessive structural concerns.

All of us here at SERVPRO of Kankakee County understand that having dedicated and trained technicians, utilizing professional protocols and equipment make a real difference in down time and in reducing claims and loss expenses. Our adage “Like it never even happened,” is our goal in returning damaged areas to a preloss condition and we are dedicated to both the property and lives of the customers we assist 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year. We are SERVPRO of Kankakee County 815-935-0077
