Rely On SERVPRO of Lincoln to Help With Rental Property Water Damage
A common problem in Lincoln Nebraska rental properties is plumbing failure. It can be due to aging pipes or renters trying to fix a leak themselves. However it happens, the resulting damage to the structure can range from minor trim replacement to complete replacement of cabinetry.
If you have suffered water damage to your rental property, then you know much of the damage is to the areas immediately under the leak. SERVPRO of Lincoln has the experience and personnel to dry out any remaining moisture and restore or repair physical damage.
Most cabinets under a sink or tap are open in the back. This means that airflow is pretty good and can be used to help dry out water damage. If the leak is caught quickly, our technicians can extract any standing water and then place a fan pointed inside the cabinet to dry it out.
If the cabinet has its own back, then there is a space between the wall and the back panel where moisture is trapped and can eventually cause drywall to disintegrate and mold to begin to grow. Our technicians will drill one or more holes into the back panel to accelerate airflow and drain any standing water that may have gathered. These holes will be drilled as low as possible where they will be hard to see and can be easily patched once work is completed. If there is trim molding covering the area to be drilled, we will remove it and drill there to help keep the original appearance intact.
Restoring your rental property to its pre-flood state is not a quick process, but it can be done efficiently and in a manner to prevent further damage. Call SERVPRO of Lincoln to get started today. We are always ready to help
