Water Gets Where Water Goes
Devastating leaks happen in the areas of a home that don’t get a lot of traffic. Water problems usually start with a seldom-used bathroom, behind the wall of a guest bedroom, or inside the ceiling of a storage closet or other out-of-the-way place. A poorly soldered fitting, a rusty pipe, a backed up drain, anywhere that water can escape its intended environment. Water leaks down through your walls, or behind them, and seeps into the insulation, subfloor, hardwood, tile, or even concrete and slab. As the water problem worsens, electrical wiring becomes dangerous and unstable, nails and screws in the framing begin to rust and break, wood turns to pulp, grout and adhesive materials lose their strength, drywall crumbles, ceilings become skylights… not to mention the potentially fatal threat of mold and other fungi, viruses, bacteria, and germs that thrive in dark, wet environments. If you think you might have a hidden water problem in your home, there’s no time to wait. Call the professionals at Restoration Logistics immediately.
