The past two weeks had been a whirlwind. This is what the body language of the exhausted contractor displayed as he climbed into his truck. As he turned the key to start the engine, he took one last glance in his rearview mirror at the Laconia property he had just finished the water damage restoration rebuild on. Two weeks ago the property suffered extensive water damage on the first floor kitchen and finished basement.
It all started when a neighbor was walking their dog and saw suspicious amounts of water streaming down the driveway of the Laconia home. A closer look revealed the water pouring out of the bottom of the walk-out basement door. Something was wrong and that something was soon discovered to be a broken pipe in the kitchen. A pipe came loose on the first floor and was filling the basement with water. Ceilings, walls, floors and belongings were soaked. Emergency water damage restoration was needed quickly for this Laconia property.
Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration was contacted by the startled homeowner who was out of town on business. After a brief conversation with the Soil-Away staff, a water damage mitigation crew was dispatched to Laconia from the nearby Bristol office. Arriving shortly after the emergency call was received; the Soil-Away crew was quick to have the scene accessed and job underway.
The local contractor was a friend of the Laconia homeowner. He worked side-by-side with Soil-Away during the water damage mitigation process. Soil-Away removed destroyed building materials such as sheetrock and carpeting. Simultaneously the contractor made arrangements to coordinate the rebuild. After only a couple days, Soil-Away had fully dried the water damaged house and handed the project over to the contractor for repairs.
The rebuild was swift and efficient. After only two weeks the home was back to normal which amazed the homeowner considering the extent of the water damage restoration needed. The contractor drove away from the property proud of his work and thankful for the efforts of Soil-Away’s water damage mitigation team.
