Washing machine and dryer; standing water on the floor Washing machines cause many homeowners to experience water damage each year. Inspect your hoses often and look for signs of water damage.

Water Damage Falmouth – Washing Machine Malfunction

Washing machines and dryers reside in many homes. It is not uncommon for homeowners to begin a load of laundry and then run out to complete errands, drive the kids to activities, or even go to work. Virtually all manufacturers caution buyers never to leave laundry machines unattended, yet many people do every day. Occasionally the results can be disastrous, causing significant flooding in their home from an overflowing washing machine or laundry tub.

SERVPRO provides water damage mitigation and reconstruction services in Falmouth and surrounding areas. We respond in less than four hours from your call and are available on a 24 / 7 basis. We have over 35 years of experience in the industry and also provides full repair and reconstruction services in conjunction with water, fire, mold, and storm mitigation services. Our contractor's license is General: CS-108357.

Laundry Room Floods

Water inlet hoses can leak; outlet hoses can fall out of the receptacle, or the laundry tub or the tub drain can become clogged, preventing water from draining. The result is a great deal of water on the floor that quickly spreads to adjacent rooms, soaking flooring and weeping into the drywall of your walls.

SERVPRO utilizes a variety of equipment in situations like these. We use shop vacs to remove water on hard surface floors and weighted extractors to remove water from carpeting and underpadding. We utilize moisture meters to check for moisture inside walls and hard to reach areas. Our technicians may need to remove baseboards and drill access holes in the walls to check for moisture as well as blow dry air into cavities to absorb moisture.

We deploy air movers and dehumidifiers throughout the area of your home, impacted by water damage to absorb moisture and lower the humidity levels to dry your home. We may ask homeowners to turn on the AC system to manage the humidity levels further. Our team of subcontractors can also assist with repairs and reconstruction to save time and reduce the total cost of water damage mitigation in your home.
