Water Damage Remediation For Your Bearden Home
Bathrooms can flood in Bearden homes, especially since there are several plumbing fixtures in them which can be the source of water spilling onto your floor. If you can’t prevent a flood in your bathroom, understanding the potential damage to your house, including the ceiling under your bathroom, is essential.
The first thing to do when you have water damage in your Bearden bathroom is to stop the source of the flooding. The problem worsens if you focus on just sopping up the water on the floor. If possible, close the overflowing fixture's water supply valves, or close the main water valve for your home. Then you can call the professional remediation specialists at SERVPRO to help you clean up the mess and repair the damage.
There are different areas and materials that SERVPRO technicians need to check when they arrive at your home. Moisture meters are used to find any hidden moisture. Drywall can become wet but not need replacing if it is caught soon enough. If the drywall is too saturated and starts to crack or fall, you could also have mold growth. In this case, our experts need to replace the damaged drywall and patch the hole in the ceiling.
Even if your ceiling didn’t get severely damaged, water most likely soaked a portion of the subfloor if the ceiling was wet. You might not see the damage, but it can pose a serious problem, which is why we also check the subflooring after water damage like this. If the floor joists weaken and warp from the water, or mold grows, the floor can fail and fall into the room below. Therefore, we take time to repair and dry out the subflooring to ensure your home is safe.
Of course, the best way to deal with water damage in your bathroom is to prevent any future accidents. Make sure you do some simple maintenance like clearing your overflow drains in the bathtub and sink, as they can clog up with debris over time.
