Overflowing Tub and a Water Loss in Hillsborough
When the forgotten water filling the bathtub starts to cascade down the stairs, a homeowner in Hillsborough upon discovery realizes help is needed. Often the prompt call to SERVPRO can mitigate the water damage, much to the relief of the property owner. We can quickly remove the four small rug coverings to a dry location where we can extract the sogginess and dry them. The older and worn carpeting on the steps were carefully removed from the tack strips for discarding. Our drying equipment can extract the remaining moisture from the stairway components--the treads and risers, thereby preserving the strength of the supporting stringers. The wallboards were also salvaged with the rapid drying; no further demolition was needed. Our goal is to minimize the damage, the disruptions, and the costs to restore the water damaged area to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened."
