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 which lays there will most likely work its way into your home and eventually could create mold issues.

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