A Leaking Bathtub Can Cause Water Damage In Your Chicago Bathroom

Water damage can be expensive to fix, so the quicker that you get it fixed upon finding it, the more affordable the repair can be. In the case of your bathroom, a plumbing leak behind the tub has caused water damage to the floor and wall around it. The sooner you get professionals to the scene of the damage, the better.

The water damage in your Chicago bathroom can cause the tile flooring to crack and the wooden framing around the tub to swell, giving your bathroom and unsightly appearance. It is not only financially unwise to initially ignore the problem, but it can also be potentially unsafe. It takes less than seventy-two hours for microbial growth to begin once mold spores have been exposed to excess moisture. Letting the mold eat away at the structure around the tub can make it unsafe to bathe.

When you reach out to SERVPRO, we try our best to arrive at your home as swiftly as we can. We can bring advanced drying equipment to your home, designed to dry out water damage and remove the possibility of further complications arising. Our techs can shut the vents in your bathroom and enclose the space, making it even easier to dry, as we set up. SERVPRO uses equipment such as drying mats, dehumidifiers, and air movers to create an environment that is ideal for evaporation. We can also drill small holes in the wall and feed small tubes into them, allowing us to blast the area between the walls with dry air.

Once we think that your bathroom is dry, our SERVPRO techs can use moisture meters to check the levels in your bathroom as well as thermal imaging technology to check for any undried pockets of water. When we're satisfied with the moisture levels, and sure no water pockets remain unchecked, our job is finished. You can enjoy your home as it was before water damage struck.

If you find that leaking plumbing is causing water damage inside of your home, never wait to get help. Use your phone to contact SERVPRO of Evergreen Park / South Chicago City by dialing (773) 337-3900. 24/7, we're available to help you in your time of need.
