Roof is Leaking, Pipe Rupture at Home: Water Drips into Buckets in Living Room. Quick action is crucial for a complete recovery from water damage. Call SERVPRO of Lakeland today for a fast response!

Water leaks aren't always as obvious as a burst pipe or a flooded basement; they can be insidious, like a slowly dripping pipe hidden behind walls or a water heater that leaks intermittently. Despite their stealthy nature, these leaks can wreak havoc over time.

Regardless of the scenario, water damage is a serious issue that demands attention. Detecting leaks early is key, but knowing where to look is the first step.

Identifying Common Leak Sites

Water flows throughout your home, so leaks can spring up anywhere there's a pipe or water connection. Loose fittings or deteriorating caulking can spell trouble. Regularly inspect toilets, sinks, and tubs for signs of moisture or persistent puddles.

Appliances that rely on water are also prone to leaks. Dishwashers, washing machines, and water heaters can all spring leaks unexpectedly. Check these appliances before each use for signs of moisture around doors and connections.

Halting the Flow

Upon discovering moisture or a new puddle, take immediate action to prevent further damage. Locate the source of the leak and shut off the appropriate water valve to stop the flow. If the leak originated from an appliance, turn it off or unplug it to prevent reactivation.

Avoid walking through the water, and contact us immediately. If there's significant water or the leak went unnoticed, you may have additional damage to address. Document the damage with photos for your insurance company.

Water Damage Restoration

We'll swiftly arrive at your home, pinpoint the leak source, and commence water removal and necessary repairs. We understand the urgency; prolonged exposure to water can exacerbate damage and promote mold growth. Our advanced drying equipment ensures thorough moisture removal.

Once dry, we'll tackle any necessary repairs. Water can warp wood and damage walls or carpet, but we're equipped to handle restoration projects of any scale. Our priority is restoring your home to its preloss condition promptly.

Contact SERVPRO of Lakeland immediately to start restoring your property.
