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. 

Yorba Linda Home Affected by Pinhole Leak Water Damage

Our call center recently received a call from a homeowner in Yorba Linda who had found signs of water damage throughout her home. Not sure how to remedy the issue, she contacted her insurance agent and they directed her to SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills.

Once we got in contact with the homeowner, we scheduled a time for our Project Manager, Felipe Saldana, to perform an initial inspection and see exactly where the water damage was located in the home. His inspection showed that there was water damage in the hallway, bathroom and laundry room. Felipe knew this was the perfect job for SERVPRO of Anaheim Hills, so he called the rest of our crew out to begin the remediation process.

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.

In the end, the homeowner was very happy with our results. In fact, she filled out a customer survey and gave us all tens! She even left a comment letting us know that all of our team members were very courteous and helpful throughout the cleanup process. We were happy to help!
