Top Down Water Loss in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Thursday, September 19, 2019
Recently, the owner of a large two story home experienced a “top down” water loss in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The culprit was a common one- the supply line to the toilet in the master bathroom upstairs was compromised, and in turn flooded the house from the top down.
This type of water loss tends to be one of the worst. And in this case, it definitely was. First, because the water came from a supply line- water that will not stop flowing until the water to the home is shut off. And second, because the loss occurred on the second floor, allowing the water to not only saturate that floor, but also to travel downward to the first floor, wreaking water damage havoc there.
In this case, as with many top down losses, the water damage was widespread, affecting the master bathroom and bedroom, hallway, and two guest bedrooms upstairs. As well as the kitchen, family room, great room, guest bathroom, and garage downstairs.
The technicians at Joe Taylor Restoration removed the affected flooring, including the laminate, from the bedrooms and hallway upstairs, as well as all the baseboards downstairs. And with the help of several extra large and large dehumidifiers, over thirty air movers, and several other pieces of specialized equipment, completely extracted the water throughout the home.
