What We Include as Part of Your Water Damage Service in San Marcos CA

It’s frustrating dealing with a water-related situation in the household. Got a dishwasher leaking water all over your expensive, wood flooring? Water leaking in through your door in large amounts during a rainstorm due to weatherstripping problems? Plumbing pipe randomly burst and won’t stop spewing water all over your home? What frustrating situations!

That’s when you call out Southern California-based 1st Choice Plumbing, Flood and Restoration for help. With our water damage service, we will do the following, plus more, during your appointment:

Finding the Source of the Water

You might think it’s easy to find where a leak or flood is originating, but it isn’t always. Although it can be obvious where it’s coming from, other times, homeowners struggle to figure out what the issue may be.

Our technicians, however, have years-long training in flood and water leak detection. And with a background in plumbing, our staff are taught to be on the lookout for possible broken pipes, problematic faucets, poor drainage, clogged rain gutters, and malfunctioning appliances that may be causing the water issue at hand.

Providing Dehumidification and Ventilation to Prevent Mold & Mildew

One of the last things you’ll want to do is invite the growth of mold and mildew in your home. Yuck! Talk about a health hazard and an all-around disgusting situation to deal with.

The best way to prevent this from happening after a flood or leak is to ensure there’s proper dehumidification and ventilation in the affected areas of your home. But don’t worry – you don’t need to have the equipment or even the knowledge on how to do this; our team members can do this for you as part of our water damage service.

Surveying the Property for Repairs

Even in minor leak and flood situations, it’s not uncommon for there to be something that needs to be repaired or replaced. No homeowner likes to hear this, but it’s the truth, and honestly, when it comes to damaged furniture and whatnot, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Once we’ve found out the source of the leak, have it stopped in its tracks, and have the excess water taken care of, it’s then time for us to check out your home to look for anything that may need to be tossed, replaced, or repaired. We may look for damaged flooring, walls, baseboards, and the like. This part of the service is all about making sure your home is once again safe for you and your family to live in.
