Fast Water Cleanup From Vanity Plumbing Leak In Battle Ground
One of the critical parts of a water cleanup is that it begins as soon as you know there is an issue. Water spreads quickly under flooring, along walls, and through carpet padding so even a small, localized spill can encompass a more extensive area the longer it takes begin cleaning efforts.
A leaking pipe behind a bathroom vanity can present several issues for SERVPRO technicians to solve. The water ran down the wall, at the back of the vanity and there was standing water to remove both inside the wooden vanity as well as the floor. The owner waited until the plumber had repaired the pipe to begin the water removal, so the technicians had to act quickly to contain the water damage in the Battle Ground home.
Since the vanity was backless up against the wall, the technician drilled holes to allow air circulation and faster drying times. Because this was a clean water spill, the technician chose to use in-place drying techniques for the carpet and pad. We use a truck-mounted vacuum to pull water from the carpet and a weighted extraction tool presses down and squeezes water from the pad. The standing water is also completely eliminated with this method so drying can begin.
Industrial air movers and a dehumidifier were used to force air through the drilled holes at the back of the vanity and quickly dry the wood to prevent secondary damage from warping. The carpet and padding were also dried quickly using this method. SERVPRO finished up the bathroom by repairing the drill holes, so there was no trace and a final wipe down with antifungal cleaners to prevent any mold growth from the damp conditions.
