Pinhole Leaks Cause Major Water Damage in Homes Across Orange County

1/31/2017 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills, we’ve seen lots of different causes for water damage. Whether it is a slab leak, appliance malfunction or something else, we’ve seen it all and have dealt with it all. If water damage strikes your home, be sure to contact SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills for help. Our team of experienced and knowledgeable staff are ready to help remove any and all signs of water damage from your home, so give us a call today.

One popular source of water damage that affects lots of homes is a pinhole leak. This type of leak comes from issues with a copper pipe. When corrosion within the pipe starts to develop, a pinhole leak begins to form. Our team has recently received a few calls from homeowners finding water damage caused by pinhole leaks in their homes. Here are a few of their stories.

Pinhole Leak Creates Water Damage in Homeowner’s Kitchen

After detecting water damage in his home caused by a pinhole leak, an Orange County homeowner asked a few of his friends for a referral to a water damage remediation company. The majority of his friends recommended SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills, so he decided to give us a call and ask for our assistance in removing the damage.

While talking to the homeowner, he let us know that he hadn’t contacted his plumber but knew that the leak seemed to be coming from the refrigerator in the kitchen. We decided to dispatch the plumber on the homeowner’s behalf, so that they could fix the leak and we could then get started on the remediation process.

With the leak repaired, one of our Project Managers made their way to the home to perform an initial inspection. The inspection showed that the water damage was contained to the kitchen area, but our Project Manager knew that it had the potential to grow and spread to other areas of the home. That’s when he decided to have the rest of our team come out to the home and start cleaning up the water damage.

Fortunately, the homeowner detected the damage early on and no removal was necessary. All we had to do was set up our heavy-duty drying equipment in the affected areas. By the time we were done, there were no signs of water damage in the home.

The homeowner was very impressed with our work. He let us know that if water damage ever affected his home again, he knew exactly who to call: SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills.

Pinhole Leak Causes Major Damage in an Anaheim Home

Our team recently received a call from a homeowner in Anaheim who’d detected water damage in their home. Not sure where the water damage originate from or what exactly it had affected, he decided to contact his plumber for assistance. The plumber found a pinhole leak, which ended up being the source for all of the water damage. He then recommended that the homeowner call SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills for assistance in removing the water damage. And that’s exactly what he did. 

After talking to the homeowner on the phone, we immediately sent our Project Manager, Chris Trejo, out to take a look at the damage. Upon his inspection, it looked as though there was water damage in the den, master bedroom, master bathroom and closet. After seeing the extent of the damage, Chris called the rest of our crew out to begin the cleanup process.

Our team started by placing dehumidifiers and air movers in all of the affected spaces. Unfortunately, some spots were not salvageable, so we had to remove some of the baseboards, drywall and laminate flooring from the home. But most the damage was dried in place with help from our drying equipment.

The homeowner appreciated our hard work and dedication in removing the water damage from his home. He let us know that if he ever found water damage in his house again, he knew exactly who to call: SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills.

With our crew in hand, we started by placing dehumidifiers in each of the affected rooms. We then removed the damaged baseboards and wood flooring in the hallway. Fortunately, we were able to dry the walls in the hallway and tile in the laundry room and bathroom in place.

Slab Leaks Are a Major Source of Water Damage in Orange County

1/3/2017 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills, we have seen many different causes for water damage. Whether it is an outdoor flood or a kitchen pipe leak, our team has experienced it all, which means we know how to detect and remove any and all signs of water damage from your home.

One of the most common sources of water damage our team at SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills sees is water damage caused by a slab leak. Slab leaks can be stressful for any homeowner, as the repair process for these types of leaks are oftentimes tedious. On top of that, once the repairs have been made, homeowners must then remove the resulting water damage, which can be difficult if they are trying to remove it on their own and don’t have the proper training that is required. Fortunately, water damage remediation companies like SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills exist to help ease the stress that comes with water damage removal. Our team knows the ins and outs of water damage and will do whatever it takes to remove any and all signs of water damage from your home.

As mentioned earlier, cleaning up slab leaks is something our team deals with on a regular basis. Here are a few recent stories about how SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills has been able to save homes in Orange County from water damage caused by a slab leak.

Slab Leak Affects Multiple Areas of an Anaheim Home

Our call center received a call from a homeowner in Anaheim who had detected a slab leak in his home. He noticed that it had created some water damage throughout his home, but wasn’t exactly sure what it had affected. He also knew that it would be impossible for him to tackle the cleanup process on his own, so he decided to call SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills for some help.

Our Project Manager, Felipe Saldana, was the first to arrive at the home. Upon his arrival, he performed an initial inspection to map out exactly what the water damage had affected. His inspection showed that the master bedroom, vanity, hall bathroom and hallway all had signs of water damage. He knew that this would be the perfect job for SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills, so he called our Crew Chief, Gilbert Julian, and asked him to start working on a remediation plan.

With a plan in place, the rest of our crew made their way over to the home to get started on the cleanup process. We ended up removing some carpet in the master bedroom and vanity as well as some of the toe kicks in the hall bathroom. The homeowner’s insurance company hired an abatement company to remove the drywall and vinyl flooring from the hall bathroom and some additional drywall in the master bedroom. To make sure that every ounce of water damage was completely eliminated, we set up heavy duty drying equipment in each affected room for multiple days. 

In the end, our team was able to remove every sign of water damage from the home. The homeowner was very happy with our end results as well. He even gave us all tens on his customer service survey! It was our pleasure help in any way we could!

Dining Room Slab Leak Causes Water Damage to Home

While water damage affecting multiple rooms can leave a great amount of stress for homeowners, water damage affecting a single room can create the same amount of stress and anxiety. Even though it hasn’t spread to other areas of the house just yet, it has the potential to do so, making the response time very important.

That is why it helps to know a water damage remediation company that is open 24/7, like SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills. We respond to calls all day and all night, so that our crew can be out to your home in no time at all and remove the water damage.

Our Project Manager, Felipe Saldana, arrived at the home shortly after the homeowner called our call center. He performed an initial inspection to see if the damage had spread to other areas of the house. Fortunately, the damage was contained to just the dining room. However, if our crew did not get to work quickly, the damage had a very good chance of spreading to other areas of the home. That’s when Felipe called the rest of our crew out to the home to begin the cleanup process.

When our team arrived, we started by removing the damaged drywall, carpet and padding in the dining room. To make sure that every ounce of water damage was removed from the home, we then set up a large dehumidifier and three air movers in the affected area.

The homeowner was very pleased with our work and how fast we were able to respond to his call. He even let us know that if any of his friends or family needed a water damage remediation company’s help, he would recommend SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills.

After seeing the damage, the adjuster reached out to SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills directly.

Once we spoke with the insurance adjuster, our team immediately made their way over to the home to inspect the damage ourselves. Fortunately, our Project Manager, Jonathan Arcila, detected water damage only in the kitchen. While the rest of the home was dry, he knew that the damage could very easily spread to other areas of the home, so our team started to create a remediation plan.

Can Copper Pipeline Leaks Cause Water Damage?

10/28/2016 (Permalink)

Water damage can show up in a variety of ways. Whether it’s due to a slab leak, a malfunctioning appliance or something else, it oftentimes feels like water damage can ruin your home wherever and whenever it wants to.

If and when water damage affects your home, it’s good to know of a reliable water damage remediation company like SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills. With our fast response time and great quality service, you’ll be happy you called SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills for help. 

While water damage can originate from a variety of sources, we’ve recently seen multiple cases of water damage caused by a copper pipeline leak. Copper is one of the most common materials used for creating pipes and other plumbing systems. That’s because it’s easy to use and has a high resistance to corrosion. However, copper pipes are not perfect, so sometimes leaks can happen, causing water damage to homes. Here are just a couple of examples of this happening to some homes in Orange County and how SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills was able to remedy the problem.

Copper Pipe Leak Causes Water Damage to Home’s Entryway

A homeowner in Anaheim reached out to us after discovering that a copper pipeline leak in one of his walls had created water damage to multiple areas of his home. Having never dealt with water damage in the past, the homeowner knew that he could not tackle the remediation process on his own. That’s when he decided to call SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills.

After talking to him on the phone, we immediately sent our Project Manager, Chris Trejo, out to inspect the damage. His inspection uncovered water damage in the entryway, hall closet and nook. Chris knew this was the perfect job for SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills, so he called Crew Chief, Gilbert Julian, and asked him and the rest of the crew to come out and get started on the cleanup process.

We first removed the affected laminate flooring in all three areas of the home. Then, some drywall was removed in the entryway and hall closet. We also tested for asbestos, which came back positive, so we performed an abatement. We finished up by placing a large dehumidifier in the affected areas for about four days, just to make sure that all the water damage was completely removed.

In the end, the homeowner was very appreciative of our work. In fact, he completed our satisfaction survey and gave us ten’s across the board! He knew he could count on us to get the job done correctly and efficiently. We were happy to help!

A Damaged Copper Pipeline Creates Water Damage for a Home in Fullerton

We also had a homeowner give us a call after finding water damage in her entry foyer and in part of her garage. She found out later that the damage was caused by a leak in a copper pipeline. To make sure the water damage was removed in a timely manner, she decided to call SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills.

We immediately sent our Project Manager, Chris Trejo, out to the home to take a look at the water damage. He inspected the entire house to make sure that the entry foyer and garage were the only areas affected by the damage. Fortunately, the water damage was contained to just those two places, but Chris knew that the damage would spread fast if SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills didn’t respond quickly. So he called the rest of our crew out to begin the remediation process.

However, before we could remove anything, we had to wait for an outside company to complete an abatement. Once that was done, our team removed some drywall in both the entry foyer and the garage. We were able to dry everything else in place using large dehumidifiers. This allowed us to save the wood flooring in the entry foyer and the concrete in the garage.

The homeowner was very pleased with the end results. She told us that she was very impressed with our quality of work and knew exactly who to call if water damage ever affected her home in the future: SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills.

Damaged copper pipelines are just one of the many known sources for water damage ruining homes.
