Do You Have Water Damage Hiding in Plain Sight?
Word to the wise: check your window air conditioning unit. Now that summer is officially over, it’s time to remove the window units from your home or office and start bracing for cooler weather. Unfortunately, some of us may discover that the window unit we relied on all season was leaking water, resulting in water damage beneath or behind it.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of places where water damage can hide in your home or office. The trouble with a leaky window unit is often attributed to age. If the tubing that directs the air from the outside to the inside of your home or business becomes clogged or loosens up completely, the condensation it has collected can leak from the unit and spill into spaces beneath it, resulting in issues like window sill water damage, as well as rotted wooden sheathing and studs.
If you discover water damage when you remove your window air conditioning unit, don’t panic. Contact your SERVPRO Wakefield team to remediate the problem and ensure your home or office is ready for fall.
