Leaking Refrigerator Line Causes Tucson Water Damage

Water Damage Leaking Refrigerator Line Causes Tucson Water Damage This water damaged kitchen in Tucson, AZ required several commercial grade dryers. The water damaged home was caught quickly & the cabinetry was saved

Yesterday we received a call from a Tucson area homeowner. She woke up to a flooded kitchen and living room and was unsure of what to do. Well, in a case like this, she did know what to do, call SERVPRO Tucson. Our flood restoration truck & trained staff was on-site in about an hour. Our crew chief quickly found the source of the problem, a water line supplying the refrigerator broke, and although the leak wasn't very big it quietly leaked water throughout the night downstairs.

The Tucson kitchen and living room were flooded extensively and work to restore the property was quickly started. In order to minimize the impact of costly repairs down the road, water restoration services should start immediately. Because the Tucson homeowner caught the water damage quickly the impact of the damage was minimized. The standing water was quickly removed and the dryers were brought in. The kitchen cabinetry was saved, the toe kicks removed, and the SERVPRO commercial dryers were turned on.

In order to ensure the surrounding drywall is dried thouroughly our "inject-a-dry" unit was used. Small holes are drilled in the drywall and fast moving air is injected behind the wall to ensure the water is removed from the backside as well as the front side. It has been 24 hours since the flood was discovered. Our fans have been running through the night to ensure the water damaged areas don't show signs of mold growth in the future. Further restoration of the water damaged kitchen will continue and before & after pictures will be posted.
