A Soggy Homecoming: Ohio Homeowner Experiences Water Damage While Traveling

Water Restoration

Imagine the following scenario: you’ve returned home from a relaxing holiday only to discover a mess in your bathroom caused by a faulty pipe or leak. What do you do? We understand that surprises of the water damage variety are no fun to deal with, and never more so when they occur when we least expect them. It’s an overwhelming situation that no homeowner wishes to face.

To prevent these situations, homeowners should be aware of where their water main is located and turn it off when they’re away for an extended period. Doing so can reduce the chances of a water damage catastrophe from occurring, such as flooding or structural issues.

However, if you unlock your doors to a saturated surprise, the PuroClean Water, Fire, and Mold Experts team is here to assist you with your restoration needs.

An Unexpected Welcome Back

Recently, our office received a call from a Galloway, Ohio, client at 5:30 in the afternoon. The homeowner, a middle-aged man, was a seasoned traveler who came home to the shock of his life: a plumbing leak that had gone undetected for several days caused a mess throughout his house.

Our technicians arrived at the house an hour later to begin the restoration process.

We first extracted the excess water from the carpeting using our state-of-the-art equipment. Our team relied on professional-grade air dehumidifiers and vacuums to ensure moisture was removed from the affected areas. Our technicians employed high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuums and air movers to dry the carpet thoroughly.

Taking care of the carpeting was one of our top priorities; further delaying treatment would increase the risk of mold growth.

Due to our team’s diligence and hard work, we completed the dry-out in three days. Our client was thrilled with our professionalism, swift response time, and quick turnaround rate. Thanks to our excellent restoration performance, he even requested our help selecting the new carpet and paint colors for his home! Kudos to our amazing technicians for their tremendous effort in getting the job done!
