Water Trapped Behind the Wall

10/27/2019 (Permalink)

Open section of a wet wall. Water damage behind the wall due to storm run-off from outside.

Even though SERVPRO of Freehold was called in to dry out a commercial building which had wet carpets from a water purifier, we took the initiative to take care on an ongoing issue behind the walls. The water originated from improper run off due to the building's gutters and outside slope. We picked up some leader extensions so that the water would run away from the building. As you can see, over time the water had run behind the walls causing the paint to peel.

Always take some time to inspect your property around your window wells and foundation walls. Clear your gutters and add some gutter down spout extensions so the water does not end up against your foundation. Any water that lays there could work its way into your home and in the future cause possible mold issues.

SERVPRO of Freehold will always provide you with advice to avoid future losses and develop an emergency ready plan for you.
