When The Sink Overflows, Damage Spreads Quickly

8/26/2019 (Permalink)

Dallas, Oregon sink overflowed.

Have you left the sink running in your bathroom or thought you did? Do you know what unfortunate damage water causes to your home?

In Dallas, Oregon a family of four prepared for a restful night. Once everything was said and done, lights out and quiet fell over the house, no one realized the bathroom sink was left on. Morning came and routines began, but unfortunately the family was struck by a wet surprise. Their bathroom floor felt wet and down the hallway was soggy carpet. In a panic the couple grabbed towels and a mop to soak up as much water as possible. Feeling defeated, the couple gave up and called SERVPRO® of Salem West.

The phone call came in at 6:44am and we sent a team out immediately to inspect the damage. After inspecting the damage, our team lead informed the homeowners that the water had gone into the drywall of the first floor. Water has the ability to seep into areas where it is not noticed by the naked eye.

After explaining the damage and locations, our team brought the equipment in to start the drying process. Our teams are highly trained in various drying techniques and chose the less damaging method. Rather than removing all the carpet to dry the water between the subfloor and carpet our team used a special drying method which floats the carpet allowing air to move under. Drying equipment is set in place and a thorough drying is started.

SERVPRO® of Salem West takes into consideration the customer’s needs and concerns. With that, we create a plan that offers a timely process and professional services.

If you find yourself with possible water damage or have questions concerning water contact SERVPRO® of Salem West (503) 393-9999 day or night. We have teams readily available to help in a disaster emergency.
