Fast Action Saves Poplarville Kitchen From Extensive Water Damage
When a pipe behind a washing machine gave way in a Poplarville home, water damage spread through the wall into the kitchen. Although there was no standing water visible, the techs found significant pockets of water trapped under the vinyl planks and the peel and stick tiles also received the effects of the water loss. In total, the techs found migration into the laundry room, kitchen, living room, and utility room. They removed the toe kick under the cabinet and deployed air movers and ported the captured moisture from the dehumidifier down the kitchen sink to bring down the moisture rapidly. In doing so, the plank flooring dried and did not require removal.
