A water leak from an air conditioner can result in extensive damage to a home. A leak can ruin everything in its path, including carpeting and drywall, creating a mess that is too difficult for homeowners to clean up on their own.
Mold growth can also be a consequence of a water leak. Mold can thrive anywhere there is moisture, and a leak is an excellent source of moisture. It can be very challenging to remove mold once it takes hold. It’s best to contact a water damage restoration company so professionals can restore your property to its pre-loss condition before mold growth and further damage can appear.
Responding to a Water Leak Situation
PuroClean recently responded to Fort Worth homeowners who called about water damage caused by a leaky air conditioner. Our experienced technician discovered the water leak stemmed from the air conditioner’s obstructed drain line. The affected drywall buckled as a result.
In this case, the sheetrock had gotten so wet that it swelled and pulled away from the wall. This often occurs when the sheetrock is up against a header and under slight pressure from above. It caused the paper backing on the drywall to separate.
Our technicians quickly extracted the water from the obstructed drain line using specialized equipment. Then, they set up dehumidifiers and air movers to expedite the drying process in the affected area to prevent further damage.
Thanks to our dedicated PuroClean crew, the water damage restoration finished in two days. The grateful clients, a young couple, resumed their home lives with minimal interruptions.
