Heavy springtime rains are beautiful when they aren’t flooding your home. In this particular circumstance, the homeowner had recently installed an egress window and new carpet in their finished basement to allow for it to be used as an extra bedroom. An unexpected clog in the window well’s drainage system caused water to seep in around the window. With this area of the home not in regular use, it was easy to overlook. When the homeowner noticed, they called us right away. We were able to remove excess water from the carpets, preserving the integrity of the newly installed carpet. Once we surveyed the damage, we began setting fans, dehumidifiers, and our specialized commercial-grade equipment nearest the water source to maximize and concentrate the drying. Once dry we livened the carpet back up with a thorough cleaning and Scotchgard.
