At SERVPRO of West Riverside City, we see firsthand all the many ways a home can be affected by water damage.

Slab Leak Affects Multiple Rooms in a Riverside Home

Our call center recently received a call from a homeowner in Riverside who had detected water damage in her home. Not sure how the damage originated, she decided to call her plumber for assistance. Her plumber stopped by and let her know that the water damage was coming from a slab leak. He repaired the leak and recommended that she call SERVPRO of West Riverside City for help with the water damage removal process. She gave us a call immediately.

With our team of technicians present, we started by removing some of the laminate flooring in each room. Because of the severity of the slab leak, the laminate started to come up, which gave us no other option than to remove the affected areas. We then removed some of the affected drywall. To make sure that every ounce of water damage was completely removed from the home, we completed the project by setting up our heavy duty drying equipment in all the affected areas. 

In the end, the homeowner appreciated our ability to remove all signs of water damage from her home. She let us know that if water damage affected her home in the future, she knew exactly who to call: SERVPRO of West Riverside City.

After reading several positive reviews, he knew that there was only one company he could go with: SERVPRO of West Riverside City.

We decided to send our technician, Gary, out to the home immediately to perform an initial inspection. After taking a look around the home, it appeared that the wood flooring as well as some drywall had been affected by water damage in the bathroom and hallway. 

With a plan in place, the rest of our team made their way out to the home to begin the cleanup process. We ended up removing the affected drywall, but fortunately, we were able to save the wood flooring. By strategically placing drying equipment in the affected areas and drying out the saturated framing studs, there was minimal removal required.
