Air Conditioner Caused Water Damage in Cutler Bay

8/5/2021 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO if you experience water damage in your home.

SERVPRO Technicians are Skilled in Remediating Water Damage

Comfort in a semi-tropical climate can require air conditioner units or central air to moderate the temperature. Reducing interior humidity is key to successful air conditioning. The condensation that occurs when an air conditioner removes moisture from the air must be managed and disposed of appropriately, typically through a series of drain pans and overflow outlets. Suppose your air conditioner experiences a backup of water because of a clogged drainage system. In that case, you can suffer water damage to walls, floors, ceilings, and even window coverings in your home. SERVPRO can respond quickly to resolve the damage caused by condensation and inadequate drainage, preventing permanent damage to your home and possessions. 

Water damage in Cutler Bay from a malfunctioning air conditioner often manifests itself slowly. You may not even know the system is not draining well until a puddle forms inside or you notice a foul smell or even mold growth near cool air vents. Clearing the drainage system is just the first step in restoring the effects of air conditioner water damage. Our certified technicians can thoroughly inspect the interior and exterior of your home proximate to the air conditioner and find all areas that show water damage. Our training expands our search to places you would not have suspected to show the effects of condensation or inadequate drainage. In consultation with you, we develop a mitigation plan that cleans, restores, or replaces materials compromised by the water, including attending to any microbial activity fed by the water damage. 

Water Damage Restoration

We have the training and the equipment to contain and remediate water damage and musky-smelling fungal growth. Since air conditioners move chilled air throughout your house, it is essential that the ductwork be inspected as part of the water damage protocol, ensuring potentially dangerous materials are not sent airborne. SERVPRO is uniquely qualified to respond to all issues raised by the water damage caused by improperly operating or draining air conditioners. Experienced in water extraction, structural drying, odor reduction, and microbial activity containment, we can restore walls, flooring, ceilings, furnishings, and window coverings to pre-water damage condition and restore a fresh and healthy airflow. 

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay awaits your call to (305) 278-8484 when a faulty air conditioner system has created a water damage challenge in your home. We pledge a speedy and professional resolution to your water damage dilemma as a committed local partner in our beautiful community.
