Dealing with Water Damage on Wood in Raleigh Homes

Kitchens have many potential hazards, one of them being water. Many things can lead to water damage in your kitchen cabinet - perhaps a leak in the kitchen faucet, a defective appliance, you name it. Irrespective of the cause, it is important to deal with the damage immediately. The longer water damage remains in your Raleigh home, the worse it becomes. You can contain the damage by contacting a professional water restoration company such as SERVPRO.

A professional water damage repair company can dry out the affected areas and ensure any damage to structural components is repaired. Most kitchen cabinets are made using different materials, including hardwood, wood veneer, plywood, particleboard, and MDF, all of which are wood-based. Though these are durable materials for cabinets, they are not waterproof. Delamination and warping from moisture can be severe, necessitating a total cabinet overhaul if no rapid measures are taken, especially for medium-density fiberboard or plywood kitchen cabinets. SERVPRO crews are well-skilled in handling repairs on all wooden surfaces.

Moisture in kitchen cabinets can extend to other areas affecting

  • Baseboards
  • Flooring
  • Drywall

Repairing moisture-damaged cabinets

After evaluating the situation, SERVPRO crews remove everything from the cabinets and inspect the extent of the damage. We check the corners, door hinges, and the wood’s firmness. Also, since moisture in cabinets can create an ideal environment for mold that can rapidly migrate into surrounding materials, the crew asses the wall behind for moisture and possible microbial growth.

Repair equipment include

  • Dehumidifiers
  • Air movers
  • Venting fans

Air movers have multiple functions; for example, shrouds can be attached to the snout of air movers, allowing them to push dry air under cabinets.

If you have moisture problems in your kitchen cabinets, SERVPRO of Cary / Morrisville / Apex can provide quality water damage repair. Call us at (919) 615-1160 to restore your cabinets to full functionality. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
