A homeowner in Yorba Linda called us out to help them locate the source of the water damage that they’d discovered. The problem was that the water had traveled to so many rooms, they couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. Our technicians at SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea are highly trained for this kind of investigative work.
We quickly dispatched the call to Project Manager, Jonathan Arcila to assess the situation. The water damage had spread through the family room, kitchen, a bathroom and two hallways. Jonathan called on Crew Chief, Jose Melgar to come out with his team to start the demo and find the leak. They began by removing the drywall in all of the affected areas, which revealed a tiny pinhole leak in a pipe running through the walls.
Since the homeowner had two foreign exchange students living with her, she thought it would be best if they all stayed in a hotel while the work was being completed. Because of this, our crew had to wait a few days to start the water damage restoration process. Once the homeowner was ready for us to begin working, we dove right in with seven air movers and three dehumidifiers to make sure all the moisture was removed from the home. Any moisture left behind can lead to mold growth.
Although we were unable to save the hardwood flooring, the homeowner was extremely pleased with the efficiency and professionalism of our entire staff. She told us that she would definitely call SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea in the future if she ever needed our water damage restoration services again.
