Finding out that one of your kitchen appliances has a leak is never a good thing. Not only is the appliance out of commission, but most likely the leak left behind water damage as well. When this happens, it is important to clean up the damage right away. If you are in need of assistance in removing water damage from you home, be sure to contact SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea. Our team of experts will be out to your home in no time at all to remove the water damage correctly, so give us a call today!

We recently had a homeowner in Irvine contact us after she’d discovered that her dishwasher was leaking. She knew that water damage was a possibility, so the homeowner contacted a professional water damage removal company to take a look. Who did she decide to call? SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea.

Our Project Manager, Chris Trejo, was the first to arrive at the home. Upon his arrival, he performed an initial inspection and found that the water damage had affected both the kitchen and the laundry room. With the ceramic flooring and drywall already damaged, Chris knew that there was the potential for the damage to spread to other areas of the home. That’s when he decided to call the rest of our crew and have them to make their way over to the home immediately.

As soon as our technicians arrived, they began placing drying chambers and equipment around the affected areas. Fortunately, none of the damaged flooring or drywall in either room had to be removed. Instead, it was dried in place.

The homeowner was very pleased with our work. She let us know that if water damage ever affected her home again, she’d be calling SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea for help.

Slab Leak Affects Multiple Rooms in a Santa Ana Home

Our call center recently received a call from a homeowner in Santa Ana who had detected water damage in her home. Not sure how the damage originated, she decided to call her plumber for assistance. Her plumber stopped by and let her know that the water damage was coming from a slab leak. He repaired the leak and recommended that she call SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea for help with the water damage removal process. She gave us a call immediately.

After talking to the homeowner on the phone, we sent one of our Project Managers out to inspect the damage. His inspection showed water damage in the kitchen, hallway and bathroom. He knew that this was the perfect job for SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea, so he decided to call out the rest of our team to get started on the cleanup process. 

With our team of technicians present, we started by removing some of the laminate flooring in each room. Because of the severity of the slab leak, the laminate started to come up, which gave us no other option than to remove the affected areas. We then removed some of the affected drywall. To make sure that every ounce of water damage was completely removed from the home, we completed the project by setting up our heavy duty drying equipment in all the affected areas. 

In the end, the homeowner appreciated our ability to remove all signs of water damage from her home. She let us know that if water damage affected her home in the future, she knew exactly who to call: SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea.

When we talked to the homeowner on the phone, he let us know that the damage seemed to be coming from a slab leak.

After taking a look around the home, it appeared that the wood flooring as well as some drywall had been affected by water damage in the bathroom, hallway and underneath the staircase. He knew that the damage had the possibility of spreading to other areas of the home, so Chris called our Crew Chief, Jose Melgar, and asked him to start working on a remediation plan.

With a plan in place, the rest of our team made their way out to the home to begin the cleanup process. We ended up removing the affected drywall, but fortunately, we were able to save the wood flooring.
