Oyster Bay Basement Takes On Water Damage
When an Oyster Bay homeowner undertakes the time and expense to upgrade their basement into a functional family room, it is even more devastating when water damage occurs. This basement had carpet and low-seated furnishings that quickly absorbed the water that entered. SERVPRO techs could save a few furniture pieces, such as the wood coffee table and ottoman, but the carpet, sofa, and loveseat required disposal. A portion of the sheetrock several inches above the floor got removed through flood cuts to dry the walls. The technicians deployed many air movers with dehumidifiers working in tandem to quickly bring down the interior humidity levels and negate the mold spore germination potential as an added headache during the cleanup and restoration.
