Wet Laundry Room Second Floor Washing Machine Leak Causes First Floor Water Damage

It does not take long for water from a leak on the second story of a build to spill down to the first floor.  The main causes of water leaks that come from the second floor to the first floor of a property are toilet leaks, overflowing bathtubs or faucets, and second floor laundry rooms.

Second floor laundry rooms can create a lot of damage if the washing machine leaks.  Here are a few tips to prevent a water catastrophe: 

  • Shut off the water supply to your washing machine if you are going to be away from home.

  • Check all exposed pipes for signs of damage or leakage.

  • Make sure to empty the dryer tank periodically.

  • Inspect the laundry drain and laundry drain filter.

  • Conduct routine maintenance.

Fire Extinguisher Causes Water Damage

Sources for Water Damage

Flooding and water damage can be caused by many different sources.  Some of the most common that we see are damaged hot water heaters, faulty plumbing causing appliances to leak, as well as overflowing toilets, faucets, sinks, and bathtubs.  This job was not typical.  A fire extinguisher was dropped in a classroom and it was activated.  Chemicals and water were expelled throughout the room saturating the carpet, tile, walls, and contents in the room. 

Back in Business

When we are on a water job, our goal is not only to extract water and dry all surfaces possible, but to clean all damaged structures and get the area back to pre damage condition or even better.  We were able to dry all surfaces and remove all chemicals from this room.  The children were able to return to their classroom safely.

The Right Equipment for the Job

Water damage can cause large loss to floors and structures but can also create the perfect environment for mold to grow.  The longer the water sits, the higher the risk for complete loss and risky air quality due to the mold growth.  Luckily, we have high tech equipment that is designed to remove the humidity from the air, even in small spaces that have poor airflow, when unwanted water is involved.  At the same time, we have water extractors to remove standing water, then powerful fans to dry the structures.  We also have high tech equipment that can detect moisture on surfaces as well as in the air.  It is imperative to get our equipment in place as soon as possible when water is an issue.  

No Power No Problem

Power Loss

A storm in Dallas, TX caused flooding in the crawl space underneath a house and water damage to the subfloor on the ground level.  The power was also out, which could be a problem when trying to use advanced machinery to extract and dry spaces and structures affected by water damage.

Luckily, SERVPRO of East Dallas is able to handle this situation.  We have access to generators of all sizes and the capability to get them to a job site in a moment's notice.  In this situation, we assessed the damage, decided on the equipment needed for the drying and cleanup process, and then able to get the appropriate generator to the house without delay.  This is just another example of our growth and expansion so we can meet the needs of our community!
