Old Appliances and water Damage
The East Texas Area is surrounded by different bodies of water and heavy rains can cause huge issues for your home. But, sometimes, the worst water loss issues in your home come from inside. An old or aging dishwasher or washing machine can cause massive damage in a short amount of time, leaving your home in a damp state.
Like all things, appliances have a finite lifespan. As frustrating as it is to have to replace one, for majority of their use, they function as a convince on our lives. So just as you might see a doctor once or twice a year for a routine visit, so should you have your appliances regularly service. Regular service and maintenance can prevent threats to your home, but even still hoses become disconnected, and seals wear out inside of the appliance itself. When these situations occur, high volumes of water could end up in the affected areas and require you to seek…..
From the moment that our experienced SERVPRO of Longview professionals get the call, we respond quickly. We understand that the longer water soaks into construction materials, the more irreparable damage that occurs. Once we arrive, we assure that water to the appliance has gotten stopped and assess the full scope of the damage that our team faces in a thorough inspection.
Extraction begins shortly after that with the use of various sump pumps and wet-vacs. Larger pools of water damage could require the use of truck-mounted pumps from our SERVPRO fleet. Once the water has gotten removed from the floors, we set out to thoroughly dry the area, clean it, and deodorize.
