Appliance Leakage, Mold Growth, and SERVPRO® to Help Concord Homeowners
Mold Removal Crews in Concord Discuss Problems with Dishwashers
An unnoticed water leak inside your home can be a problem that gets worse over time. It is possible that a fungus can develop without you noticing it right away, which can eventually motivate you to call in a professional mold remediation company like SERVPRO®. Your kitchen is a room in your house that contains a large number of water pipes running in and out of it. All it takes is for one of these pipes to break and spill out water that can negatively affect any organic materials inside your kitchen. Appliances like your dishwasher can also malfunction and develop a slow leak that can eventually lead to water damage and a mold infestation.
If your dishwasher malfunctions and starts to leak water, it could be difficult for you to notice the leak right away. Since your dishwasher is usually tucked inside your kitchen cabinets, water inside this dark, confined area can create a situation where mold growth occurs in your Concord home. If a fungus does form in the area where your dishwasher is placed, our SERVPRO technicians take extra measures to make sure that the contamination does not spread throughout your home. We first can come in pull out and disconnect your dishwasher so that we can assess the situation. We then determine where the water is coming from and make sure that the problem has stopped once the dishwasher is disconnected.
After we figure out the source of the water leak and make sure no more water is entering your kitchen, we deal with removing the hyphae structures the fungi have formed. The first step to mitigating the contamination is to build a plastic barrier around the affected region of the kitchen. This containment chamber helps keep spores and harmful dust particles from getting released into the air and causing contamination in other areas not close to the initial source. After your kitchen is contained with thick plastic, take steps such as scraping, soda blasting, or sanding to remove the visible contamination from the organic materials inside your home.
We can tear out non-salvageable back walls, or drill holes and inject warm air to help dry out the moisture-filled voids. Our technicians can adapt on-the-fly to situations as they become apparent — another reason to rely on our highly skilled crew.
