Our Experts at SERVPRO Know Exactly What to do for your Home’s Water Cleanup needs 

 Water leaks, whether they come from an appliance or pipes, can cause homeowners hundreds to even thousands of dollars in damages depending on the length and extent of exposure. In the United States alone, water leaks waste over 1 trillion gallons of water each year. This amount equals the water usage of Miami, Chicago, and Los Angeles put together. 

 If your Wilmington home requires water cleanup, the pros at SERVPRO are always available to restore your home to a preloss condition. These highly-trained technicians receive extensive education in fire, water, and mold damage mitigation and remediation to allow homeowners to minimize property loss and repair costs after disaster strikes. Your local SERVPRO works closely with both you and your insurance adjuster to make filing your water damage claim stress-free. 

Common Causes of Dishwasher Leaks

  • The base of the appliance is not level
  • A broken door or worn gasket
  • A defective dishwasher tub 
  • Using the wrong type of dishwashing soap
  • Damaged supply lines

 Water damage from any of these causes can affect everything from drywall, to paint, to floor tiles, to electrical wiring. Inspect and maintain the appliance regularly so that neither your warranty nor your claim is voided due to neglect. 

SERVPRO Dries Your Kitchen Fast

After technicians evaluate the extent of damage and measure moisture content with infrared imaging and penetrating and non-penetrating sensors and meters, they can get to work extracting moisture with a variety of tools. These can include mops, squeegees, and extraction wands, which are ideal for removing water from wall cavities and other hard-to-reach areas.

 If your kitchen tiles are saturated by water, ceramic tiles can generally be salvaged. Discolored grout can be cleaned with specialized EPA-registered cleaners and bleaching solutions. However, if the saturation has reached the subflooring, the affected area may require tile removal and replacement so that technicians can clean and dry the subfloor with air movers and dehumidifiers. 

 SERVPRO of New Hanover can leave your home looking, "Like it never even happened." Call (910) 762-8180 for disaster mitigation that you can count on any time of the day or night.
