Shower Saga: Tackling Repeated Flooding and Water Damage in Coral Gables

Water Restoration

Homeownership can be a rewarding experience, but it also comes with its share of challenges. Plumbing issues, if not handled promptly and efficiently, can lead to significant property damage, such as flooding. The subsequent issues can pose a headache for homeowners. Our crew recently faced one such difficult situation in a luxurious residence in Coral Gables.

Two Time’s the (Flooding) Charm

On an ordinary April day, the residents of the upscale home in Coral Gables encountered a persistent plumbing issue in the second-floor shower, causing extensive flooding in multiple rooms below.

During the late hours of Monday, April 17th, our crew arrived promptly at the scene. We immediately set up our specialized equipment, including our specialized dehumidifiers and air movers, to initiate the drying process for the affected areas. Quick action was essential to prevent further deterioration and mitigate water damage.

After a few days of rigorous drying and salvage efforts, the homeowners believed their troubles were over. They contacted a plumber, who supposedly fixed the underlying issue that caused the flooding. However, their hopes were soon dashed when, during another shower, the same areas were inundated with water again, and the flooding spread to a few additional spots.

Despite the setback, our team went above and beyond to aid the homeowners and rectify the problem once and for all. Working diligently, we collaborated with the plumber to identify the root cause of the issue.

We initiated a second round of drying to address the newly affected areas, with extra attention given to the wood floor, which had begun to buckle due to the recurring flooding. We employed specialized drying mats and equipment designed to preserve and restore the flooring without causing any further damage.

After several days of persistence and hard work, the plumber, with the insights from our PuroClean of Davie experts, was finally able to resolve the issue properly. The residents could finally breathe a sigh of relief as they took their showers without fear of flooding. Kudos to the fantastic work, team!
