Recently, in Lincoln City, Oregon there was a home that had hot water line break in their basement. This lead to steam in the HVAC duct work that rose to upper floors of the home. This created water condensation and high humidity levels throughout the home. The plumber recommended that the homeowner call Disaster Master to help extract all water and help dry out the interior of the home. Disaster Master responded within thirty minutes to this emergency water damage call. The crew of Disaster Master got straight to work by extracting about 10 gallons of water from the floor of the basement. Next, they wiped off all the water on the affected areas from the condensation on the 2 upper floors of the home. Lastly, drying equipment was set and monitored for 3 days to help dry out the structure of the home. Every day the drying equipment was monitored and moisture readings were taken to help assess the level of humidity in the home. The homeowner was very satisfied with the work that Disaster Master did because they saved the wood paneled walls on all levels throughout the home and helped prevent any structural damage.
