Water Damage to Vacation Home
Vacation Homes are very common in the area we at SERVPRO LHC / BHC / KGM provide assistance on and it's tough when it happens in a vacation home because it goes undetected for so long that it ends up having much more damage than if the family lived in the home full time and noticed the issue in a day or so. This home was flooded and leaking for just at 3 weeks before the customer came and noticed. As usual, their insurance company advised to use SERVPRO since this is gong to require much more repair than to remove water and fix the leak. SERVPRO got the loss call and had the team on site within 40 minutes because it was crucial to get this water extracted and begin a dry out to access for mold. It only affected approximately 2 1/2 ft up and the drywall was removed throughout the home from the bottom of the floor to 4 ft up, then fully replaced, repaired for this customer, after all mold was removed. All baseboards were installed as new along the bottom as well so their home was returned "Like it never even happened."
