Leaky Sink Causes Water Damage

SERVPRO of Atchafalaya was called out to a home that had a perpetual leak from their sink that had caused water damage. After our team arrived on site, they assessed the extent of the damage to the home, and took multiple moisture readings. From that information, they were able to determine the appropriate number of dehumidifiers and air movers that were needed to efficiently and effectively dry out the space.

Once the proper equipment was in place, we monitored it, and took additional readings daily until the entire space and its contents were dry. Though the air movers and dehumidifiers can be loud, it is important that they remain on until our technicians turn them off. This is to ensure that the drying time is quicker, and that it's dried properly.
