How Washing Machines Can Create Water Damage in Your Pensacola Home
Water Damage from Washing Machine Failures in a Pensacola Home
There is no mistaking that washing machines have helped to simplify the life of Pensacola residents over the last many decades, but as many homeowners choose to work their appliances to the point of failure before replacing them or servicing them, your washing machine can also be anything but convenient. Aging components within the machine such as fill sensors and or bearings could result in your washing machine overflowing or spilling its full barrel contents onto the flooring. Whenever a disaster like this strikes, you have a small window of time to get to the problem before the situation causes significant damage to construction materials and the contents of the affected area.
As the water damage in your Pensacola home might be among the most pressing of concerns, you also want to quickly resolve the situation so that you do not have to spend weeks getting behind on laundry or taking loads of clothes to laundromats until the restoration completes. The longer that you wait to get a resolution in place, the more damage that can occur to vital construction elements of your home. This degradation can lead to structural failure or mold growth when left unresolved, so immediately calling professionals like our SERVPRO team is critical.
From concrete floors to tile and wood plank, our SERVPRO professionals have the tools to eliminate moisture from flooring materials to preserve them whenever possible. With the combined use of air movers and industrial-strength dehumidifiers, the technicians on site can force moisture out of materials and into the air as a vapor for collection by the dehumidification equipment. Set in moisture and dampness into flooring material can often benefit from the use of our large drying mats which offer penetrative power to dry out lingering moisture below the surface level.
While the washing machine has made life more convenient and efficient for homeowners, it can also become the source of substantial water damage when the appliance is mismanaged or aging. Whenever a disaster like this threatens your property, give our SERVPRO of West Pensacola rapid response team a call at (850) 469-1160.
