Recently in Lincoln City, Oregon there was top floor condo that had a leaking hot water heater. This caused water damage in the unit as well as in the unit below it. Disaster Master was hired to do the water mitigation work in both units. In the upper unit The water needed to be extracted from the carpet and the carpet needed to be floated to help dry out underneath it. Baseboards, door trim, and the door frame were removed from the affected areas. Also, drying equipment was set up to help dry out the structure of the home. In the down stairs unit Disaster Master moved the contents out of the way and created a containment wall to help protect the contents. Then the following items were removed from the affected areas such as the the carpet, carpet pad, door trim, baseboards, drywall, light fixtures, and insulation. Once all the compromised materials were removed all visible microbial growth was remediated. Lastly, drying equipment was installed and monitored until the structure was dry. The homeowners in both units were very satisfied with the work that Disaster Master did because they responded quickly to help prevent structural damage.
