Removal of Moisture Behind Walls In Calumet City-Lansing Homes

5/1/2022 (Permalink)

Water loss incidents can occur from many different sources in your Calumet City- Lansing home, but aging plumbing often plays a contributing factor. Many of the older homes in the area still have metal piping throughout the property, which can begin to degrade and erode over time, especially when exposed to higher mineral elements in the public water such as iron and manganese. These minerals are not harmful to consume, yet, can have a damaging effect on older pipes when sediment builds up around connections, bends, and fixtures.

 Once a problem has started, water damage can soon develop in your Calumet City- Lansing home through leaks in the weakest portions of the plumbing. These can be challenging to chase down, as the moisture and dampness can affect a broad area. To prevent excessive tear out and replacement once you have encountered water damage, you can reach out to our SERVPRO professionals for fast and effective restoration and repair.

Our team that arrives at your home comes equipped with detection technology to help them both identify leaks in the plumbing behind the walls, and identify the full scope of the water damage that your home has sustained throughout the time that the pipe has been leaking water. Our auditory equipment can help us to hear behind drywall to determine the exact point of the leak only to remove portions of wall required for us to repair the damaged plumbing and begin drying efforts effectively.

 To better place our drying equipment, our thermal imagery cameras can identify moisture pockets behind walls of your home to determine where focused drying efforts must occur to remove the dampness present. If the damage is severe enough, our SERVPRO technicians might also implement our injectidry system to force heated air through wall cavities to dry them efficiently before secondary effects like mold growth can occur.

While water damage might happen from a variety of sources, clean up and drying efforts need to begin promptly to prevent excessive structural concerns. Give our SERVPRO of Calumet City- Lansing rapid response team a call 24/7 at 708-627-0077.
