Water Damage Mitigation: Washing Machine Mishap
This recent water damage mitigation project performed by the SERVPRO of Cheshire County Team was the result of a broken supply line to a residential washing machine. For no other reason but age and wear and tear, the supply line broke and ultimately burst which then leaked for an extended period of time while the occupants were at work. The water traveled laterally across the manufactured wood floor causing it to curl and lift. Additionally, the water spread to walls, some of which were external with insulation behind the drywall. The flooring was removed along with damaged drywall, affected insulation, as well as the saturated cabinets. The remaining standing water was extracted, and commercial drying equipment (commercial air movers and dehumidifiers) was installed to thoroughly dry the remaining building materials.
After a couple days of thorough drying, the drying equipment was removed, and the area is now clean and prepped for reconstruction.
