Rental Properties are often Affected by Water Damage
Water Damage Can Affect Your Rental Properties
If you own rental properties, you know that sometimes tenants vacate a property in less-than-perfect condition. Sometimes the damages left behind are related to water. Standing water is not a common issue, but rather instead, water that has leaked inside a wall, or down along baseboards. Other times it is water damage found on bathroom floors and the ceilings below them. Kitchen floors are also affected by water damage.
This type of work is often beyond the scope of the average technician, and professional renovations and repairs are needed. This is because many times where water damage is present, the support beams under the floor have begun to rot. Mold can be another issue that most technicians are often not qualified to handle. Mishandling mold can create severe future problems that affect additional areas in the home than what was originally affected. In Glendale, water damage can be quickly restored with professionals who are experienced in this type of work.
Making sure that the water is no longer able to enter into the living space or otherwise continue leaking is our first step. Then we will use humidity sensors to locate where humidity has accumulated nearby and along natural pathways within your home's interior structures. As we inspect for humidity, we will also check for water damage. Peeling and bubbling paint, crumbling wallboard and drywall, and warped moldings are areas that we will repair. First, we will thoroughly dry these areas out with heaters and fans. After the area is dry, we will check surrounding areas for materials to match so that we can repair as closely to the original structures as possible. We want to make your property look “Like it never even happened.”
