Why SERVPRO For Water Damage In Seminole

Something as simple as running a bath can go so wrong and cause water damage. The problem comes when the person running the bath gets distracted and forgets the water is running. 

A bathtub caused water damage in a Seminole home when it overflowed and soaked not only the floor in a second-floor bathroom, and the water ran down into the garage below. The water caused extensive staining on the ceiling and walls.

They learn to attempt to restore items and save property owners the cost of replacement whenever possible. 

Controlled Demolition Necessary
