Water Mitigation Project in Palmdale, CA

Successful Water Mitigation Project After the Burst Supply Line in Palmdale, CA

At Scientific Restoration Specialists Inc., we are proud to offer quick, successful, and detailed water damage restoration services. Recently, we handled a project for a residential homeowner and successfully completed water mitigation in Palmdale, CA. The water damage caused by the burst supply line was extensive, and it impacted several rooms, but our team was well-prepared to tackle the situation with care.

The Severity of the Water Damage and What Caused It

The job involved handling water damage in a residential home in Palmdale, CA. The affected areas included the downstairs living room, upstairs bathroom, dining room, upstairs bathroom closet, and bedroom closet. The key materials affected were the ceiling and drywall. The problem originated from a burst shower supply line in the upstairs bathroom. This caused water to seep through the ceiling and drywall of the downstairs living room. We discovered visible mold behind the ceiling drywall and under the laminate flooring in the living room. The upstairs bathroom also had visible mold underneath the tile and underlayment, and microbial growth was present under the tiles, as well as behind the baseboard in the toilet room. 

How We Tackled This Burst Shower Supply Line 

When we arrived, we carefully inspected the area using a moisture meter to determine the extent of the damage. We carefully documented all affected areas to create a detailed restoration plan. Here are the steps we took:  


To prevent cross-contamination, we set up containment barriers around the affected areas. This important step helped stop mold spores from spreading to other parts of the house.

Water Extraction

We used powerful pumps and wet vacuums to extract standing water from the living room and bathroom. Quick water removal was very important to minimize further damage.

Drying and Dehumidification

To make sure all moisture was thoroughly eliminated, we used our specialized equipment. Here are the steps we followed:

  • Set up Dehumidifiers: We placed dehumidifiers throughout the affected areas to remove moisture from the air.
  • Set up Air Movers: Air movers were strategically positioned to circulate air and speed up the drying process.
  • Continuous Operation: The dehumidifiers and air movers operated continuously to make sure the walls, ceilings, and floors were completely dry.
  • Monitor Progress: We regularly monitored moisture levels to make sure the drying process was progressing effectively. 

Material Removal and Cleaning

The laminate flooring and underlayment in the living room were removed due to water damage. In the upstairs bathroom, we removed mold-infested tiles and underlayment, as well as the microbial growth behind the baseboard in the toilet room. The affected parts of the drywall and ceiling in the dining room, bedroom closet, and living room also had to be removed. 

Mold Remediation

Our team removed the moldy drywall and insulation from the living room and bathroom. We used air scrubbers to clean the air and prevent mold spores from spreading. In addition, we treated the affected areas with antimicrobial solutions to eliminate any remaining mold.
