The high-end cabinetry in your Boynton Beach kitchen hides more than your cleaning supplies and the supply and waste pipes for your sink, dishwasher, and garbage disposal. A stubbornly reappearing puddle at your feet as you use the tap was bothering you, and you finally determined a leak in the under-sink plumbing is the culprit. Now you have quite a mess on your hands, as water built up under the cabinets and needs release and the materials need repair.

Can I Just Open Up the Doors and Let the Cabinet Air Out?

The chances of the wet spaces under your sink and cabinets drying out without intervention are unlikely, so finding help with water damage repair in Boynton Beach is crucial. If the apparent leak was preceded by seepage for days or weeks beforehand, substantial harm to the floor and fixtures is predictable. Issues could include:

    •    Wet subfloor and wall behind the cabinet
    •    Deterioration of the cabinet itself
    •    Mold growth

Is It Necessary to Rip Out the Cabinet to Inspect and Remedy the Damage?

SERVPRO technicians always consider the least invasive and disruption actions to get the job done. When scoping the situation, we use moisture detectors and meters to pinpoint the area with wet materials and possibly standing water. We check out the construction of the cabinet to see if technicians can take apart sections to permit access. The part of a cabinet called a toe-kick, the recessed barrier at toe level can often pry out, allowing us to insert portable extraction wands for water removal. With toe-kicks displaced, we can direct the flow of air movers and position dehumidifiers to the best advantage to dry the water damaged space.
