Water Damage in Dilworth?

Remodeling a home exposes all kinds of surprises. When we decided to update our basement in our Dilworth home and make it more usable, we uncovered hidden water damage caused by broken sewage pipes and other corroded plumbing pipes. The plumber removed the damaged pipes and replaced them with new pipes, but we were left with bad smelling, stained drywall, and a big hole in the wall where the pipes had been pulled out and replaced.

Hidden Water Damage in Moorhead?

One morning I looked up at my ceiling in Barnesville and saw a soggy mess! I wasn’t sure what could be causing the water leaking above as there were no pipes or plumbing in that area of the house. I called SERVPRO® of Moorhead, and they came out quickly to assess and repair the damage.

My air conditioner unit had a clogged condensate drain line! (Who knew that this was even a thing?) I also found out that I’m not supposed to run the air conditioner while there are open windows in the house as this will cause water condensation in the air conditioning unit, which can spill off of the drain pan and cause water damage to happen.

Staying Healthy around Standing Water in Moorhead

Standing water of any kind in Moorhead can be a powerful source of disease. Floods can be worse due to the amount of water involved. Even small puddles can pose a risk. 

Viruses and bacteria can cause illnesses. To reduce your chances of catching something, SERVPRO of Moorhead suggests:

  • Washing dirty clothes and towels in hot water. Use bleach if possible
  • Remember that you can shake hands with an infected person and get infected. 
  • Use bleach or other disinfectants on hard surfaces
  • Keep your hands washed
