Flooded Bathroom in Greenville, SC
SERVPRO of East Greenville County was called to a rental property in Greenville, SC because the drain in the bathtub had leaked before the P-trap causing water damage to the tile floor in the bathroom, and wood framing in the crawlspace. The team at SERVPRO partnered with the property owner and adjuster to determine that the best course of action was to remove the tile flooring in order to exacerbate the drying process for the subfloor. The subflooring was made of a highly absorbent wood compound and would have taken several weeks, if not months, to dry if the only air contact was from the crawlspace. By the subflooring having more air exposure, SERVPRO of East Greenville County’s specialized drying equipment was able to get the material to dry standard in less than 3 weeks. Saving the property owner several thousands of dollars in drying costs and preventing the subflooring from developing microbial growth or rotting.
