SERVPRO Assists with Water Damage in Mount Vernon

If you ask any expert in the water restoration industry, they know that refrigerators with ice-making capabilities can quickly become trouble makers. For some reason, the water lines leading to your refrigerator's ice maker seem prone to problems. One day everything could be going fine, and your ice maker is working perfectly when suddenly it malfunctions. If your ice maker breaks, it could leak into your freezer or cause water to spray out from the back.

When our SERVPRO team conducts water removal in Mount Vernon, the first thing we do is find the source of the problem. If the leak came from the water line running into your freezer, we could shut off the water running into the line if possible. Next, we look for any potential safety hazards such as exposed electrical lines and mitigate any issues we find so that the work area is safe for all occupants.

Things we can do to help after your ice machine breaks and leaks:

  • Water Extraction
  • Injection Wall Drying
  • Water Damage Debris Removal
  • Cleaning Up After Sewage Backups
  • Applied Structural Drying
  • Content Pack-Ins and Pack-Outs
  • Restorative Carpet Cleaning

If carpets get saturated after a water leak, your carpets and pad may have to be removed. We can then set up a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the moisture that evaporated into the air and soaked into your building materials. We can take measurements and calculations to figure out the correct number of dehumidifiers to air movers. If there are too many air movers, the relative humidity level in your house can rise and possibly cause more damage.

If you ever suffer from a mishap with your refrigerator's ice maker, call SERVPRO of Skagit County at (360) 873-8744.
