Water Damaged Stairwell in Bellingham, WA.
Water has the innate ability to find the path of least resistance. Sometimes that means simply flowing down hill or pooling up in a low lying area and other times it means going under doors and through walls to find a man made riverbed.
A staircase is often the path of least resistance for water and these areas can look like waterfalls if enough water finds it's way to them.
SERVPRO of Bellingham can help in these times of need and our crews have seen numerous situations that would make a Maintenance Manager lose sleep and gain wrinkles.
The water damage occurred on the second floor and the stairwell became the path of least resistance as the water flowed downhill cascading down stairs and into building cavities.
I think you can see where the water helped separate the paint from the drywall.
