Laconia Homeowners Can Contact Water Damage Mitigation Professionals for Their Restoration Needs

Refrigerator leaks can occur for a variety of reasons. A malfunctioning ice maker, improper positioning, or leaky supply lines are enough to cause damage that can build up over time in walls and floors.

If a kitchen appliance failures necessitate water removal in your Laconia property, SERVPRO technicians are ready to assist you. This team’s goal is to return your home to a preloss condition after any size disaster.

What Are Some Common Causes of Refrigerator Leaks?

  • Condensation buildup near the drain hole can instead leak onto the surrounding floor if your refrigerator is level or tilted forward instead of leaning slightly back.
  • The lines behind the fridge or freezer that remove water can become clogged. Built-in ice makers are another common cause of leaks.
  • Your refrigerator may not have enough insulation to prevent condensation buildup. Putting a fridge in a colder location where the heat of the motor can build up condensation can also eventually lead to water damage.

How Can SERVPRO Techs Restore My Kitchen After Cleanup?

If your kitchen has vinyl floor tiles, SERVPRO technicians can remove delaminated tiles and prepare the flooring for replacement. Techs can also examine the subfloor for damage by evaluating the area with infrared cameras. This imaging technology allows SERVPRO to perform more comprehensive mitigation services.

This monitoring technology allows SERVPRO teams to keep track of the specific humidity of items throughout drying. Once your kitchen has been thoroughly dried, this team can render such services as repainting, subflooring repairs, hanging new drywall, and implementing new vinyl flooring.

SERVPRO of The Lakes Region is prepared to make your home look, “Like it never even happened.” Call (603) 527-2518 to begin the mitigation process.
