Water Trapped Behind The Wall

Even though SERVPRO of Middletown was called in to dry out a commercial building which had wet carpets from a water purifier, we took the initiative to take care on an ongoing issue behind the walls. The water loss originated from improper run off due to the building's poor gutter design and outside slope. We picked up and installed some leader extensions so the water would run away from the building. As you can see, over time the water had seeped behind the walls causing the paint to peel.

Always take some time to inspect your property around your window wells and foundation walls. Clear your gutters and add some gutter down spout extensions so the water does not end up against your foundation. Any water that lays there will most likely work its way into your home and in time create possible mold issues.

SERVPRO of Middletown will always provide you with advice to avoid future losses and help develop an emergency ready plan for you.

The sprinkler system in a commercial building in Red Bank, NJ engaged on a Saturday night due to a frozen pipe. 15,000 square feet of office space was damaged by the water. The building manager contacted our 24/7 staff here at SERVPRO of Middletown to come out and take care of the water removal. She let us know there was a large amount of furniture and personal contents on the floor in the affected areas of the building.

Our water mitigation team quickly prepared equipment for the job and rushed to the scene. They made sure to bring the largest truck to move the contents to temporary workspace while the drying and repairs took place. Shortly after arriving, the technicians had all items packed out and were able to remove the saturated ceiling tiles and carpet in just a few hours.

The manager was amazed at SERVPRO of Middletown’s immediate response during the weekend. She was equally impressed with our team’s ability to dry out the wet offices in only a few days.
