Washing Machine Leak

Water damage was incurred by this local Columbus home when a washing machine leaked water throughout the home. The flooring was thoroughly soaked, and our moisture meters were telling us the subfloor had sustained too much water damage to dry through the flooring material. Our SERVPRO Team then removed the flooring to allow us to dry the subfloor adequately.

Drilling Holes After Water Damage

When you experience water damage in your home or business, you may be wondering why our SERVPRO Team drills holes in the baseboards. By drilling holes, the water can drain from small weep holes made in the area behind baseboards once we remove them, and also from ceilings that hold water. It also allows our air movers to push air into wall cavities and other enclosed spaces and then exit out another hole.

Moisture Meters

When our SERVPRO trained technicians check your home or commercial building for water damage, they use moisture meters to determine where the water is hiding and what areas are wet. As you can see above, the tile is reading very wet. Once our SERVPRO Team determines what is wet, we can them move forward with the mitigation process.

Mud Slide In Medical Office

This medical office was flooded after heavy rains caused mud from a nearby construction site to enter in through the exterior of the building. When we arrived at the facility, the first thing we needed to do was deal with was the standing water in the building.

Water Damage In Walls

When you experience a water loss in your home or business, it is very likely for the water to make its way into the walls. Neglecting the water in the walls can cause more extensive problems down the road such as mold growth. In this commercial building our trained staff is making a 2 foot flood cut, taking out areas that could not be dried out, to later be replaced by new drywall.

Water Damage At Medical Office

A commercial loss can happen over night unexpectedly. You should always have an emergency plan in place to best protect your property. Pictured is the drying part of our water restoration services. SERVPRO of Northwest Columbus uses modern equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers.

Moisture Meter

Detecting The Moisture

After a water loss, it's not always so noticeable to where the water damage is at. You may see a wall that looks and feels dry but when our team puts a moisture meter up to the wall, it shows high moisture levels. With this equipment, our highly trained staff is able to quickly address the affected areas getting your home or business back to normal.
