A Leak Under a Kitchen Sink Causes Water Damage in a Yorba Linda, CA Home
One evening, a Yorba Linda, CA homeowner was doing dishes when she noticed a leak under her kitchen sink. Upon further investigation, she discovered the leak was coming from her garbage disposal. She removed everything from under the sink and found a puddle at the bottom of the cabinet. She did a quick Google search and found that SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea was the top water damage company for her to call to examine and repair the water damage under her sink.
Shortly after her call, our Production Manager, Jonathan Arcila, arrived at the home to take a look at the damage. After an inspection of the water damage, he recommended that the homeowner call a plumber out to the home to repair the leak and then our crew of heroes would begin the water removal process.
