Recently in Lincoln City, Oregon a window latch broke inside of a home during a rainstorm. This caused water damage inside of the house because the window latch was broken causing water to come inside. The homeowner called Disaster Master right away to help remediated the water damage. They began by moving the contents in the affected areas out of the way so that the carpet and pad could be lifted up to help dry it out in place. Then the wet affected items like bedding and a mattress were removed and disposed of. One extra large dehumidifier and three air movers were set for three days to help dry the room. This helped expedite the drying process and prevent any mold from growing. After the room was all dry, the final moisture reading was done to confirm there was no elevated moisture in the room. The homeowner was very pleased that Disaster Master was able to save the carpet and pad and dry the room out to prevent any structural damage.
