Water Is leaking from the pipe Has water damage left your home in a disastrous state? Call SERVPRO of Summerlin North/Sun City today. We are Here to Help®?.

We are all so busy nowadays that we rely on our homes to work quietly behind the scenes for us while we jet off to work, school, evening activities and family events. While our homes are reliable to a certain extent, all it takes is for one system to malfunction for a disaster to occur. 

Sometimes those situations are obvious, like your HVAC system malfunctioning and home becoming uncomfortably hot, but others can be much trickier to track down. Sneaky water leaks can occur behind walls and under floors and can cause serious issues to occur before you even discover the problem in the first place. 

Where Water Leaks Start

A leak can start anywhere you have water flowing through your home. Faulty pipes, old washing machines or a loose water connection around your sink can lead to a drip or a deluge in a short amount of time. 

If the water leak is happening behind your walls or under your floors, it will slowly start to seep into every surrounding area. It will leak into cracks, crevices, soft sub flooring and carpets, and it can even leak down walls. A single drip or tiny leak may not seem like much, but even a hairline crack can eventually leak multiple gallons of water each day

What to Do About It

Water leaks can sometimes be hard to spot, but when you do, the situation could have been happening for a while and the damage may be significant. Lingering moisture can start to affect structural supports as well as load bearing walls. It can also lead to mold growth that can eat away at your home little by little. 

As soon as you discover the water spot, leak or mold infestation, get us on the phone. 

While we are asking our questions and creating our restoration plan for you, see if you can locate the water shut-off valve to the surrounding area. If the situation was caused by a faulty appliance or water line, stopping the flow of water can ensure the problem doesn’t get any worse.
