Water Damage from a Leaking Drain Pipe in the Upper West Side
The wavy latex paint finish on this wall in an Upper West Side Apartment indicated a water leak within the wall cavity. Our SERVPRO team can map out the damp area with moisture meters and infrared camera imaging to discover the full scope of the water damage. We can then perform a controlled demolition and cut out the wet sheetrock leaving the leak and the void area ready for repair and treatment. The water stains on the opposing wall also hint at more damage. Opening walls for inspection and drying are crucial in some water loss situations. We can dry the area with our equipment and spray a biocide to kill any microorganisms present in this wall cavity. A drain pipe leak is considered a category three water loss, black water, that does need special handling and restoration. By following best practices, we can complete the job knowing we have another satisfied customer.
