Eldred Water Heater Causes Water Damage
When a water heater burst in an Eldred basement, it caused water damage that affected the basement and other areas of the home. In a hallway, the water seeped through the hardwood floorboards and the board required removal to dry the subfloor. Fortunately, the baseboards in the hallway and interior of the walls did not need removal for extraction or drying as the cleanup began before water wicked into the sheetrock. SERVPRO techs extracted the water and then used air movers to lift the embedded moisture out of the wood along with drying mats. This method assists in lessening the warping of the boards. After confirming the flooring dry, the techs cleaned and prepped the loss areas for repairs.
