Why SERVPRO Is The Popular Choice For Water Cleanup In West Palm Beach
If you have noticed spots on your ceiling in your West Palm Beach home that you do not recognize, you want to take immediate action to see what the problem is. Spotting like this indicates you have a leak somewhere, and if it has leaked there once, it can happen again and create a more significant problem.
If a ceiling leak has caused water to pool into your home, you need water cleanup services in West Palm Beach right away before more problems arise. SERVPRO is a professional remediation company who understands that any water damage loss requires fast action. Therefore, We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster, so it is easy to see why SERVPRO is a popular choice for water damage emergencies of all kinds.
There are various reasons why your ceiling could be leaking, including a leaky roof. Heavy wind storms can blow shingles off the roof, or your roof may just be told old to keep the water away. Your roof needs to be inspected regularly by a professional so look for any damages. Your gutters also should be checked. If they become clogged by leaves and other debris, it changes the flow of water with enough force that it can enter your home.
Airflow is one of the essential tools that SERVPRO techs use to restore water damage. Drying your structure effectively requires knowing the right techniques for using airflow. In the case of your ceiling, the airflow from air movers must be directed across the wet ceiling to evaporate any moisture. Doing so circulates the warm air which has risen to the ceiling. For drop ceilings, we open a few panels on either end and then direct the airflow into these areas.
Additional issues that can cause leaking in your ceiling include leaky pipes. Leaky pipes are many times the most dangerous water leak since even the tiniest hole can flood your ceiling with many gallons of water per day. Old pipes or pipes which were not correctly installed or secured can cause these issues.
If an upstairs bathroom is not waterproofed correctly with the right sealant or caulk, this can also be a significant reason for water damage in your ceiling and can also damage the room below. Also, if you have a laundry room upstairs, a leaking washing machine creates massive damage when it leaks many gallons at once.
