Water Removal Services Save the Day After Appliance Failure

Laundry machine failures can be frustrating for homeowners. Moisture seeps into baseboards, drywall, and tile grout. On top of that, cleanup must act quickly to prevent mold growth and unpleasant odors from affecting the laundry area, which can be difficult when homeowners have work and other obligations they must meet.

SERVPRO® water removal technicians in Pompano Beach are ready and able to return the affected property to a pre-damage state. Homeowners can rest easy, knowing highly-trained professionals can use their skills, tools, and knowledge to restore the laundry room after an appliance leak. SERVPRO provides comprehensive cleanup services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Preventing Washing Machine-Related Water Damage

While disasters can happen anytime, scheduling inspections and preventative maintenance can significantly reduce the risk of overflows and water damage. Consider these factors for effective laundry machine overflow prevention, especially in front-load washers:

  • Check the front door seal for potential looseness or damage, which could allow water to leak.
  • Another factor could be the water level switch itself. Sometimes, contacts on the switch become damaged or fused, which can cause overflows.
  • Use detergents tailored to high-efficiency washers, and read instructions carefully for their use.
  • Inspect the drain pipe for potential clogs, one of the most common causes of washer overflows.

SERVPRO’s High-End Water Extraction Tools and Strategies

Water damage removal techs at SERVPRO focus heavily on extraction before drying a water-affected space. This strategy has several benefits:

  • Several passes of moisture extraction can accelerate drying by as much as 500%.
  • Extraction is environmentally friendly, using mops, squeegees, and specialized units to address moisture in hard flooring and tile grout. OSHA-approved antimicrobial solutions can remove discoloration and odors in tile grout and other vulnerable areas.
  • Extraction is especially effective on area rugs and other porous surfaces.
