Water Damage Occurs When a Window is Left Open in a Brea, CA Home

2/24/2015 (Permalink)

A homeowner in Brea, CA was preparing to go on vacation and was getting all of his last minute checks in place. In his rush out the door, he accidentally left a window open as he left for his one week vacation. As bad luck would have it, a storm came through while he was gone and rain poured through the open window. The rain soaked the floor and the carpet below the window. Because the homeowner was gone for a week, the water sat in the home causing damage when it wasn’t cleaned up immediately. 

When he returned, he discovered the wet floor and carpet and realized he had left his window open while he was gone. He called a friend for advice on what to do with the water damage he was left with. His friend suggested he call the best water damage company in the area, SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea. 

He called us right away, and we sent our Production Manager, Jonathan Arcila, to the home to take a look at the water damage. He determined we needed to get started right away since the water had been sitting for some time. He sent out Crew Chief, Jose Melgar, along with his team of experts, to the home to begin removing the water damage. 

The crew set to work as soon as they arrived to ensure the work was completed quickly and professionally. They removed all of the affected areas, and then set up a dehumidifier to remove any excess moisture from the home. Since the water had been sitting in the home for so long, the team knew that there was also the potential for mold growth, besides just standard water damage. To ensure there were no mold spores in the air or the room, the team also set up an air scrubber to clean the air. All of these elements of the removal guaranteed each step was completed safely.

The homeowner was thrilled we were able to complete the project quickly and safely. He was concerned with the amount of time the water had been on his floor, but was happy he called the professionals at SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/Brea to bring his home back to its water free state.
