Broken Water Heater Causes Basement Flooding in Clifton NJ Home
This finished basement in a Clifton home sustained water damage from a broken water heater. After a short time, the homeowner realized he needed some professional assistance to mitigate the damage. Our SERVPRO team arrived very soon after receiving the call since We're Faster To Any Size Disaster and immediately vacuumed up the remaining visible water. We explained that some of the wet laminated floor slats and vapor barrier were not salvageable. Our goal was to protect the paneled walls from permanent damage, so we quickly removed the water soaked materials and placed heated air movers and Envision LGR dehumidifiers to dry out this enclosed area. The vinyl baseboards were also taken out to gain access to drying the wall cavities and minimizing the demolition. The After Photo depicts the concrete pad, walls, treadmill, and sofa now secure from water damage. Our customer was pleased that his delay in calling us did not result in more water damage. Count on SERVPRO of Clifton to make you feel "Like it never even happened."
