Water Damage – Amherst Home
Water damage occurred at this Amherst home when a water pipe running through the walls burst while the residents were away. The homeowners came home to quite a lot of water in the pictured room. There was water damage to the walls, and the carpeting was soaked. The homeowners needed a professional water restoration company to help them with their water damage problem. SERVPRO of Hampshire County has an outstanding reputation for water damage restoration projects, and we are available to help 24/7. Our industry certified technicians would drill small weep holes in the walls after removing the baseboards to allow for evaporation and drainage. The crew would also employ commercial air movers and dehumidifiers to aid in the drying process. The before photo shows commercial air movers forcing air between the carpeting and padding to help dry the affected surfaces. The after photo shows the dried carpeting in place before the baseboards were replaced.
