Roof is Leaking, Pipe Rupture at Home Has your home been impacted by a water leak? Call SERVPRO of Issaquah East today, we are Here to Help®.

It’s just a typical day in your home as you run around getting things done and getting kids onto the bus. You run past your bathroom and smell a musty odor or step into your kitchen only for your socks to become soaked through. Is it a simple spill or something more sinister?

Water leaks are always troublesome because they can be hard to track down quickly. The longer it takes to discover the problem, the worse it can become and leave you with some serious structural issues or mold infestations. Water leaks can happen virtually anywhere, but check these locations first to give yourself a good starting point. 

The Investigation Process
One of the first places to check is anywhere that is connected to the outside elements. Rain, snow, sleet and ice can all infiltrate your home through the smallest cracks or gaps. Check around your windows and doors as well as lesser-known areas like wiring holes or skylights. 

Another common place where leaks happen is around your pipes in your home. As water flows in and out of your home, a single leak or loose connection can slowly introduce water onto your floors or behind your walls. 

Over time, this simple leak can cause massive structural problems. Even water leaks around your outdoor spigots can be troublesome if the water drips too close to your foundation and makes its way into your basement. 

Your Appliances

If you had to pick, which water-reliant appliance do you use the most in your home? We all love our dishwashers and washing machines, but they can also betray us when we least expect it. If you start to notice a funky odor near your machine or see a drip coming from the bottom of it, it is time to pull it away from the wall and investigate further.

Signs of moisture or a leak include water spots on the wall or floor, visible puddles and mold growth anywhere near the appliance. If you do discover these signs, call us right away so we can get started on your recovery. 

How We Can Help 

A professional restoration is important for any kind of home disaster, but especially for water leaks. If you don’t get all of the water dried up, it will continue to cause you problems and your home will suffer as a result. Our team will ensure that the standing water is removed promptly, but we will also tackle the hidden moisture behind your walls and floors. 

Once the water is gone, we will evaluate the scene and determine if your home is in need of any repairs. Water has the ability to warp or swell floors, ruin drywall, and soak through carpets and subfloors. Oftentimes, a complete removal and replacement of these structural components of your home is necessary, and we can handle the entire process for you.

A simple water leak can lead to a big problem. Contact SERVPRO of Issaquah East & North Bend today.
