Storm Damage Invades Westerly Basement
Storm Damage Invades Westerly Basement ?The lowest areas in Westerly homes often bear the brunt of storm damage and this home had a large amount of water enter their basement. The drainage was poor and the property owner called in SERVPRO to extract the water. The techs moved out items and inspected them for restoration potential. Those items got transferred to a cleaning station where another tech performed the appropriate type of cleaning based on the construction materials of each item. As seen in the After Photo, the techs set up a large number of air movers and dehumidifiers to reduce the interior humidity levels rapidly. Concrete and masonry sometimes react with efflorescence, a dry powdery substance that is easily wiped away.
