Water Damage Durham Water Loss, Sudsy Kitchen, Here Comes SERVPRO! Sudsy Water Damage in Your Durham Kitchen? SERVPRO Provides Fast Cleanup and Drying

An Overflowing Dishwasher Leads to Water Cleanup in a Durham Kitchen

Dishwashers are one of those appliances we can count on, day after day, to do the job right most of the time. However, one small thing, like accidentally putting too much detergent in your dishwasher or a faulty float switch can cause plenty of problems from overflowing on your kitchen floor to potential water damage and mold growth in your kitchen. Without swift water cleanup, you may have more to worry about that mopping up soap suds and water on your linoleum floor.

If an overflowing dishwasher causes you to seek out professional water cleanup for your Durham home, the certified technicians at SERVPRO are ready to help you. All of our specialists receive extensive training and education on water damage prevention as well as cutting-edge tools to evaluate and eliminate moisture in your home.

Within just a few hours of your call, our SERVPRO technicians can begin cleaning up any remaining water in your kitchen with wet/dry vacuums and thorough cleaning of surfaces with EPA-registered disinfectant to prevent bacterial exposure. Linoleum flooring is a vapor barrier, so depending on the amount of time since your dishwasher malfunction has occurred, it may need to be removed to allow any moisture that has seeped into the subfloor to dry.

Drying the wooden subfloor can be accomplished with the help of centrifugal air movers placed every 10 to 16 linear feet, industrial-grade dehumidifiers, and other materials, such as a large sheet of 6mm polyethylene to trap water vapor for removal more effectively. After drying has finished, we can reinstall your flooring and restore any other surfaces that have been affected by water, such as wooden furniture. By the time we finish, your dishwasher overflow may as well have never happened.

SERVPRO of Durham; We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, so we can come to your home and restore it to a preloss condition 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including all holidays. If you need our services for mitigating damage to your home, give us a call at (603) 868-3343 today.
