Condo Water Damage- Fort Pierce, Florida
Thursday, March 29, 2018
Neighbors. We all have them no matter what type of dwelling we live in; single family home, condo, townhouse, apartment, etc. Sometimes we love our neighbors, sometimes we don’t like them so much, and sometimes we don’t know them at all. But when we live in a situation, like a condominium, where we share walls, ceilings, and even floors with our neighbors, what happens at the neighbor’s can have a great impact on what happens in our space, particularly when we’re talking about condo water damage.
So often in condo buildings, when one upper level unit suffers a water loss, the one underneath and even the surrounding units are affected in quick succession as water seeps through and pours down the walls, saturating ceilings and floors and anything else in it’s path. Wet seeks dry and will continue to do so until the water is shut off.
And that is exactly what happened recently for a condo owner in Fort Pierce, FL. A neighboring unit suffered a water loss, and as a result, the owner experienced condo water damage in his office, master closet, and master bathroom. So much so, that there was visual paint blistering, water staining, and moisture throughout those areas.
He needed help and called his insurance agent with questions, wondering who was responsible for his condo water damage since the water loss began in the neighboring unit, and needing a referral for water restoration. His agent referred Joe Taylor Restoration, and explained what the insurance company’s course of action would be moving forward. After the conversation with his insurance agent, Joe Taylor Restoration was called out for emergency services right away, and we were able to begin the restoration process.
Although this situation was perhaps not the most neighborly for the condo owners in Fort Pierce, FL, Joe Taylor Restoration was able to make it a bit better. We took care of the condo water damage, drying all affected areas and negating the possibility of a mold problem in the future. In this case, we did our part, the insurance agent did theirs and, hopefully, the two neighbors were able to come to an agreement on the rest.
