Commercial Apartments Water Loss - Salem, Oregon  

12/18/2019 (Permalink)

Did you know that it can take less than 30 minutes for water damage to affect multiple levels in an apartment complex?

SERVPRO of Salem West/Lincoln & Polk Counties recently were called to an apartment complex that was suffering from a toilet bowl overflow on the 4th floor. Not only did the water migrate throughout the 4th floor apartment, affecting 3 of 5 rooms, but it wicked through the drywall and ceilings of the 3rd and 2nd floor apartments directly below. Each unit had less affected rooms than the source unit due to the quick response of our Nationally Certified Technicians and knowing where the water shut off was.

Working floor by floor, our technicians rapidly created a plan for drying purposes in order to lessen the water migration of the already affected materials. Working with each tenant, yes, the units were occupied, they took great care of the contents within each unit.


No matter the size of damage or the size of property, our highly trained technicians can create and execute any plan to mitigate water damage. Our goal is to do as little demolition as possible, but let’s face it, there are instances that can not be avoided. Once we have finalized the execution of removing affected materials and properly drying materials that were not so affected, we can then send our repairs team in and let them do their magic work.

We are not only a fire and water restoration company, but we do in fact have a highly trained reconstruction crew that will come in afterwards and bring your property back to preloss condition.

Working with different teams is beneficial, meaning no outsourcing unless necessary.

If you are a property manager or owner and find your property suffering from water or fire damage be sure to call SERVPRO of Salem West/Lincoln & Polk Counties at (503) 393-9999.
