Water Damage in a Ceiling--Carmel, NY
The disadvantage of concealed plumbing within structural voids is shown in this Before Photo. The slow drip from the fitting soaked the ceiling in this Carmel home, weakening the drywall material and staining the surfaces. Our SERVPRO of Putnam County water damage restoration technicians (WRT) understand the underlying problem must first be tackled. The drip must be uncovered and repaired. In this case, since the wall was slightly sagging, a controlled demolition was in order. The exposed cavity can then be dried with our equipment, and an antifungal agent sprayed to inhibit the growth of mold. We sealed off other sections of the house to avoid any debris or dust from settling there. Count on SERVPRO to arrive promptly, and get the job done right.
