Washing Machine Floods Crawlspace - Keizer, Oregon
A broken hose from the washing machine in a Keizer, Oregon home created severe water damage that seeped through the flooring into the crawlspace. The amount of water that can spill out of a washing machine hose is 160 gallons per hour. The homeowners called SERVPRO of Salem West with 2 hours of the incident.
Severe water damage affects not only the initial point of contact but structural supports and rooms underneath. The homeowners were quick to call but unfortunately were unaware of how quickly the water seeped through the flooring into the crawlspace of their home. In this instance the floor, subfloor and insulation in the crawlspace were affected.
In a crawlspace, it is important to extract standing water quickly. The atmosphere in there is a great breeding ground for mold. Insulation typically needs to be removed when severe water damage occurs. Once the insulation is removed our technicians place drying equipment throughout the damaged area and monitor until the drying process is complete. When the drying process is completed our team will reinstall the insulation and repair the flooring.
Whether the water damage is minimal or severe our highly-trained team at SERVPRO of Salem West will walk you through the initial plan and continue contact through each phase of the restoration process.
