Local home owner experiences hot water heater leak!
SERVPRO of North Clackamas and Happy Valley received an emergency call from a local home owner in the Clackamas area regarding a water loss. During that emergency call we were told that “the hot water heater inside the finished basement had leaked and there was standing water!” Within an hour our crew of well trained professionals were on sight with equipment ready to help! Our crew was able to extract the water, unfortunately the water went inside the wallas and the bedroom. The carpet in both rooms absorbed a lot of water.
Once the standing water was extracted and we began to remove the carpet , pad, and baseboards our crew chief noticed suspicious growth. Due to that suspicious growth, we weren't able to set air movement. We had to wait for the removal of the affected materials in order to set that drying equipment.Once we were able to remove the affected material we came up with a drying plan. The plan was to set two dehumidifiers in addition to demolition to speed up that drying process. We were able to finish demolition and dry the basement out in only 5 days and had their basement restored to preloss conditions.
