Boynton Beach Bathroom Creates Water Removal Need in Home

Homeowners in a local property noticed a small dark spot on the ceiling of their home one evening, not realizing they were looking at the beginning of water damage. They decided to wait until morning to look at it.

The following morning, the wet spot on their ceiling had become a full-fledged need for water removal in their Boynton Beach home. They found the source was an upstairs bathroom leaking under the cabinet, and the water came through the ceiling downstairs.

Confirming Where the Water Went
The use of moisture detection equipment lets the techs confirm the areas of water migration. This attention to detail eliminates the guesswork for where the water seeped into the subfloor, and only a limited amount of tile needed removal in the bathroom to dry the subfloor.

Water Extraction
SERVPRO technicians have different types of water removal equipment to ensure they can handle wide-scale loss situations or tight quarters. In the case of a household, portable pumps are convenient to take into small spaces such as under the bathroom sink after removing the toe kick on the cabinet. Hence, the extractor wands fit underneath for speedy removal of the moisture.

Handling Ceiling Removal
Unfortunately, when sheetrock gets wet, the interior core does not have restoration potential as it tends to buckle or sag and requires removal. SERVPRO technicians cleanly cut it away and open up the ceiling area for drying.

Drying Above and Below
The use of specialized drying equipment helps with the removal of any remaining embedded moisture upstairs, downstairs, and in the floor joists between floors. The technicians deploy air movers downstairs aimed upwards at the opened ceiling, and drying mats upstairs to force air into the subfloor.

Monitoring the Drying
Before beginning the drying process, SERVPRO techs take air measurements in other areas of the home to set drying goals. This ensures the water loss areas return to the same interior humidity levels as the rest of the house. During drying, they take readings regularly to make sure the process is happening as planned and drying goals get attained.

When your home needs water removal, contact SERVPRO of Boynton Beach (561) 413-9754. The certified technicians arrive with everything they need in their green service vans to make it “Like it never even happened.”
