When the temperatures soar and the humidity reaches oppressive levels in New England, many homeowners retreat inside to the air conditioning. Keep your central air conditioner unit in top shape with routine maintenance to avoid water damage with these tips.
Why do AC units leak?
The most likely culprit of water damage from a central AC unit is condensation. Condensation forms when the unit pulls warm, humid air in for the cooling process. The liquid created by the condensation is directed to the drain pan and then released through a drain pipeline. If this line gets clogged, the water will back up into the house, causing extensive water damage.
Water Damage Restoration from a Leaking Toilet Supply Line
ServiceMaster Dynamic Cleaning was dispatched to a local commercial building that sustained a leak in the building's toilet supply line. A leaking toilet supply line is one of the most common causes of water damage we are called to restore in bathrooms. Our team arrived within 2 hours of the property manager's call for help. Once on location, we began emergency water mitigation services in the affected offices, bathroom, and unfinished basement storage area. Water damage restoration services included extraction of standing water, cleaning and deodorizing carpets, sanitizing structures to prevent mold growth, removal of wet insulation and ceiling tiles and finally set up drying equipment.
Homeowners can prevent mold growth through everyday measures. Mold thrives in moist environments such as basement and bathrooms. The most effective way to keep mold from growing in your home is to monitor the humidity level by using a dehumidifier and/or air conditioner during the warm humid months. Additionally, homeowners can control mold growth by using exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathrooms. But what happens when you can't control the moisture caused by a roof leak, appliance failure, or a groundwater flooding? The key is to act quickly to prevent mold growth after a water damage loss.
