My Wall is Damp Behind My Sink Cabinet in Cleburne – Do I Have a Problem?
Any Kind of Damp Wall in a Cleburne Home Can Signify Water Damage – SERVPRO Techs Can Locate the Source and Mitigate the Damage
You go to get something from under the sink, and you notice the cabinet floor seems damp. Or you decide to clean out from under the cabinet, and not only does the floor have moisture, but the wall in the back is damp too. Something is causing the moisture. SERVPRO in Cleburne can help.
How Do You Dry Cabinets?
Kitchen sinks can have slow, dripping leaks that can cause hidden water damage. As in this case, moisture had gradually soaked into the cabinet floor and the wall behind the cabinet. The homeowner now needs water mitigation in Cleburne to repair the damage.
There are standard levels of moisture content for materials such as wood and walls. Our technicians use numerous techniques to determine the levels of water damaged content. This can include moisture meters, probes, and infrared cameras. These are also used to track the source of the intrusion. Once they know what they are dealing with, they extract the water and dry the wall and cabinets. Depending on the level of damage, this can include:
- Light wands
- Pump extractors
- Air movers
Controlled Demolition & Restoration
There are occasions when the structural elements cannot get completely restored. When this happens, controlled demolition is used. This can mean cutting out a portion of the drywall and replacing it. Flood cuts can be made to allow airflow into wall cavities. Once everything is completely dried, then the restoration begins, including the above. If the cabinet fronts were impacted, semi-refinishing might be needed.
Do not ignore minor problems like damp walls. There is always a cause that needs to be addressed. We are water mitigation experts and can take steps to stop the source. We then restore your home to preloss condition. Our goal is to leave it, “Like it never even happened.”
