SERVPRO Techs Arrive Quickly And Use Their Professional Equipment To Save Your Crossville Home!

The kitchen is one of the most likely areas in a Crossville home to receive damage from water due to the number of appliances and supply lines in the room. When this happens, cleanup effort must begin as rapidly as possible to:
    •    Halt the migration of water within the home
    •    Limit loss to flooring
    •    Inhibit the possibility of musty odors and mold issues later

If your tile floor did not allow seepage to the subfloor underneath and the seal on the grout remains intact, there is a good chance the restoration of your kitchen may occur with the tile left in place.

What is the Best Way to Cleanup Water Damage in My Kitchen?

When a water damage event occurs in your Crossville kitchen, the water migrates rapidly under toe kicks on cabinets, baseboards, and under heavy appliances. If any of this water gets left behind, it can lead to other issues such as deterioration of the building materials and other secondary issues that can lead to further cost to address in the future. SERVPRO techs have extraction equipment that works on any type of flooring and have the power to lift away even deeply embedded moisture. The more water that gets removed lessens the time needed for drying. Before SERVPRO arrives, you can hasten the process by:
    •    Using mops or towels to absorb the water  
    •    Turning off the water if the loss is from a pipe break
    •    Move kitchen chairs and tables out of the area if it is safe for you to do so
