Recently, in Lincoln City, Oregon there was an emergency water damage in a vacation property. A pipe had burst in the wall affected multiple floors of the home. The water from the pipe went down the walls from the main floor to the lower floor. The floors, ceilings and walls were affected by the pipe bursting. The homeowner called and hired Disaster Master to do the water mitigation work needed. Disaster Master responded to the job within one hour of receiving the call. The first step was to inspect the affected areas to asses the water damage. Moisture readings and photo documentation were performed to document the level of moisture in the walls and floors. There was elevated moisture detected in the floors and walls in the affected areas so removal of the affected drywall and flooring was needed to help dry out the area. The contents of the kitchen were removed from the cabinets and packed safely in boxes. This was necessary because the kitchen cabinets and appliances needed to be removed before demo work could take place. The crew at Disaster Master removed the affected flooring in the kitchen and the ceiling in the basement. They also scraped the glue off of the floors after removing the flooring. Drying equipment was set to help dry out the affected areas in the home. Disaster Master monitored equipment for a few days to ensure the structure was dry. The homeowner was very satisfied with how quickly Disaster Master was able to respond to his emergency water damage.
