Water Cleanup Teams Fix Flooding From A Slipped Feed Line in Your Phoenix Kitchen

Moving your furniture around to clean more thoroughly behind and underneath rarely causes a problem in your Phoenix home. Things can get a bit trickier when you pull water-fed appliances out from their assigned spaces so you can deep clean in these usually hidden areas. You must be very careful when moving your dishwasher, refrigerator, and washing machine around.

It only takes one loosened water line to flood your kitchen in your Phoenix home, but our water cleanup team can get things back to normal. Lost water can spread out over your floor where it makes a visible mess, but it can also seep into any cracks in the corner between the floor and the wall, or elsewhere. The water can flow underneath the floorboards and cause underlay materials to swell.

When a kitchen's floor is carpeted, SERVPRO technicians work fast to get it completely dry. Padding can contain a lot of water. While we can often salvage a carpet even if it is loaded with water, as long as it is Category 1, it is not cost effective to save the padding. Not only does padding disintegrate when soaked, but it can make it more difficult to get the floor below it to dry quickly.

Our IICRC-certified Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician (RRT) can pull your carpet up and away from the floor, remove the wet padding, and dry the carpet. Drying a carpet this way, called floating, keeps the rug from stretching and dries it thoroughly. Relaying it once dry means you do not need to replace your carpet. Extracting the water from your kitchen requires the use of not only drying equipment but also extraction equipment.

SERVPRO makes sure the water line gets reattached to the appliance, and then we begin using different extraction and cleanup devices. If water splashed onto walls and soaked in, we can use our Injectidry to air out and dry the interior of the wall. If your kitchen has linoleum or another non-porous flooring, we can use our hand-held wands to pull up escaped water. Other types of drying equipment get your kitchen dry again by removing water vapor and keeping it from condensing on surfaces in your kitchen and other areas of your home.

SERVPRO of Central Phoenix serves Encanto, also, and can help provide water cleanup services that keep your home protected from mold and secondary water damage. Call us at (602) 386-4268. We're available every day of the year with 24-hour emergency services.
