How Can Homeowners Inspect and Maintain a Kitchen Faucet?
• Inspect the faucet and turn off the water supply to your sink before disassembling.
• Open your faucet after shutting off the water to relieve pressure inside the plumbing and ensure that water is completely off.
• Take photos or video as needed to help you keep track of small parts, or arrange them in the order that they were removed. Make sure the drains are covered to prevent the loss of small parts.
• After reassembling the faucet, open shutoff valves slowly to turn water on and the leave the faucet open. This process ensures that there is no more air in the pipes.
Can SERVPRO Professionals Remediate Water Damage to Cabinetry?
The technicians at SERVPRO can clean and dry water-damaged cabinet interiors by first removing toe-kicks and drilling small holes for ventilation. If water damage on the floor or subfloor is a concern, techs can inspect under structures with thermal imaging cameras.
Water stains and light odors can be remediated with EPA-registered biocides. Depending on the size and openness of your kitchen layout, a drying chamber made of polypropylene may be erected to contain air movement and dehumidification to a smaller space.
