Seaside Restoration recently received a call for a home with water damage Isle of Palms SC. The property owners returned from vacation to find a squishing sound emitting when they walked across the living room carpet. Unfortunately, the carpet and one of the walls were saturated. Today, we share our response to the situation and how it turned out.
The Water Damage Isle of Palms Details
As we all came to find out, the cause of the problem was due to a burst pipe in the kitchen. Because this pipe transported water from the crawlspace to the kitchen sink and was routed through beside the living room, water went everywhere.
On top of saturated carpets, several inches of standing water collected in the crawlspace. As unfortunate as situation was, the homeowners acted quickly and called us right away. Even better, their homeowner’s insurance policy recommended Seaside Restoration as a preferred restoration services provider for water damage Isle of Palms SC.
