Mitigation of Water Damage from a Leaky Air Conditioner in Agoura
SERVPRO Technicians Quickly Dry Out and Remediate Your Water Damaged Property
Air conditioner use occurs in many Agoura residences during the hot summer. Maintaining these appliances so they function correctly should include examining the lines that drain condensed water away from your home.
If an air conditioner's drain lines become blocked, they can cause homeowners problems with water damage in Agoura. The steady trickle of water in between a wall or down the face of it can saturate not only the wall itself but also the floor below, materials in living areas on lower levels, carpeting and padding, and any personal belongings that happen to get in the way.
SERVPRO employees know that even small amounts of water can cause significant water damage to happen in homes when exposure to water occurs continuously. Because of this, water damage can become much worse because homeowners do not see it as quickly as they might when a tub overflows or a broken water pipe floods a kitchen floor.
We do not remove materials unless replacing them becomes impossible to do safely and effectively. We can clean some elements that sustain minor water damage when we catch it in time, and we prefer to restore by cleaning than by replacing materials wherever possible. This method keeps costs low for our customers, as well as taking much less time to complete. When we do remove materials, we double bag them, so any dust, microbes, or other debris also remains contained and does not dirty up the rest of your home.
If carpeting becomes damaged, we can often restore small sections by removing the padding underneath and laying new padding underneath. Carpeting often becomes damaged when traffic patterns include areas with compressed padding. We dispose of the old padding using the same method used to eliminate other damaged materials.
We want to ensure that we restore complete dryness to your home again, so we take measurements of the damaged area's moisture content before and afterward. This practice protects your property against future situations involving both moisture and microbial activity.
