When Flood Damage Strikes Your Home, SERVPRO Responds with A Solution

Dishwashers can go wrong without notice, and people are often surprised by just how much water can come out of a relatively small appliance. A broken appliance quickly spreads water through the surrounding area and might cause damage to carpets, nearby walls, or any furniture that happens to be in the water’s path.

Flood damage from a broken dishwasher in your Boynton Beach home is a small incident that has the potential to cause a significant inconvenience. It is hard to carry on life as normal with a wet kitchen or utility room, especially if carpets or other furnishings are compromised. Luckily we are on hand to help – We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

There are many safety considerations to be aware of during the flood damage remediation process. You can rely on SERVPRO to be aware of safety at all times and carry out drying and remediation with the utmost care and attention.

For example, we take great care around any electrical appliances. Being mindful of electrical hazards is particularly important in the kitchen as there are so many appliances there, such as the toaster or hob. We handle all appliances with care. We also ensure light fittings are safe before attempting to switch them on.

We tie electrical cords out of the way and cover up tack strips to make sure there are no trip or puncture hazards. SERVPRO provides our teams with the highest quality personal protective equipment to ensure safety is paramount during any work on your home.

Our teams are also aware of the risk of structural damage, or damage to carpets, floors or other furnishings. We use a range of instruments, including thermo-hygrometers and moisture sensors to assess your kitchen and ascertain the extent of the water damage.

Another safety issue is the potential for mold or mildew to grow in your kitchen after a broken dishwasher incident. Our IICRC-certified technicians take steps to prevent mold growth, including making sure your kitchen is thoroughly dry and using disinfectant chemicals where necessary to treat at-risk areas or items.
