How Do Ceiling Leaks in Sevierville Homes Occur? 

Because homeowners do not wish to see exposed plumbing or bare plumbing in their homes, these utilities are often tucked between floors and wall cavities to reach the fixtures throughout the property. With many houses having lead or copper piping, water damage restoration can often be necessary when pitting, oxidation, and other chemical processes weaken or damage the pipes and connections.

A persistent leak between the first and second floors of your home can leave the lower floor and ceiling system susceptible to damage. Water clean-up after ceiling leaks can begin with drying the property but can also lead to secondary efforts our team can also help with, like ceiling repairs from water damages. Experienced water damage restoration professionals of our SERVPRO team can be a one-stop-shop for emergency services water damage.

Are Water Removal Services Necessary? 

Standing water can often be one of the most critical mitigation efforts in water damage restoration. Initial measures taken to remove pooling can prevent absorption and saturation into sensitive materials. Ceiling leaks can not only impact the immediate structure surrounding the leaking or broken fixture but also result in pooling on the floor when dripping becomes a more consistent breach. Beyond extraction tools often necessary during water damage restoration, we can remove trapped water with specialty drying tools such as:

  • Drying mats
  • Weighted extractors
  • Carpet wands
  • Positive/negative pressure systems

What Water Damage Remediation is Necessary to Dry Homes? 

Water damage restoration often focuses the most on drying and moisture removal tactics. From flood restoration to basement flooding, the measures taken to dry the property are vital in protecting these installed materials and exposed contents from irreparable harm. Often the process of removing moisture from building materials and the environment utilizes multiple tools and instruments in our recovery inventory.

Centrifugal and axial air movers can displace trapped water, which can be collected and removed with strategically placed dehumidification machines. These tools can be more effective with their production by installing physical barriers to establish set drying zones to regulate drying science elements, including:

  • Temperature
  • Airflow
  • Humidity

From water removal services to flood restoration after ceiling leaks, having professionals ready to mobilize and help is critical.
