Appliance Aging Can Lead To Water Loss Incidents In Your Shreveport Home

Check your appliances regularly to avoid any water damage issues.

Have You Checked Your Appliances in Your Shreveport Home Lately?

With all of the bodies of water that sit around Shreveport like the Red River, it is no wonder that so many homes find themselves battling the possibilities of flooding throughout the rainiest times of the year. Even with this continual threat, homeowners find themselves surprised by internal threats they didn't see coming. A good example of this would be the degradation of a dishwasher or washing machine.

Appliances can assuredly make your life a little bit easier, but as they are machines, there is only a finite amount of time that they live and function correctly. Regular servicing of these appliances can prevent some of these threats, but even still hoses become disconnected, and seals wear out inside of the appliance itself. When these situations occur, high volumes of water could end up in the affected areas and require water removal services for your Shreveport residence.

From the moment that our experienced SERVPRO professionals get the call, we respond quickly. We understand that the longer water soaks into construction materials, the more irreparable damage that occurs. Once we arrive, we assure that water to the appliance has gotten stopped and assess the full scope of the damage that our team faces in a thorough inspection.

Extraction begins shortly after that with the use of various sump pumps and wet-vacs. Larger pools of water damage could require the use of truck-mounted pumps from our SERVPRO fleet. Once the water has gotten removed from the floors, we set out to thoroughly dry the area, clean it, and deodorize.
