Damaged Drainpipes Cause Major Water Damage to Fullerton Home

7/18/2016 (Permalink)

Drainpipes play an important role in making sure that your house’s plumbing system stays in tact. When something happens to these pipes, homeowners run the risk of water damage spreading throughout the house. If you notice that your drainpipes are not working correctly, be sure to give SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea a call. Our expert staff will be at your home immediately to start the water damage remediation process.

We recently had a homeowner in Fullerton reach out to us after he discovered a damaged drainpipe in his house. The pipe had a hole in it that resulted in water damage affecting the kitchen, hallway and family room. A plumber was able to fix the hole in the drainpipe, but he recommended that the homeowner call SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea to take care of the water damage.

As soon as we received the call, Project Manager, Jonathan Arcila, made his way out to the home to inspect the damage. After taking a look around the house, he knew that SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea could definitely clean up the water damage. That’s when he called Crew Chief, Pedro Barrera, and had him come to the house to help create a remediation plan.

Not too long after that, our team of talented technicians made their way over to the house and began the work. We first tested for asbestos. Unfortunately, the test came back positive, so we performed an asbestos abatement. After that, we had to remove some drywall in all of the affected rooms, the tile in the kitchen and some wood flooring in the family room and hallway. To make sure that everything was completely dry, we placed two dehumidifiers and two air movers in the affected areas.

The homeowner was very impressed with our work. He let us know that if he or anyone else he knew had to deal with future water damage, there was only one company that he would recommend: SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea.

If you detect any kind of water damage in your home, contact SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea today!
