Rain Storm in Lynden, Washington.
Most businesses have busy seasons and SERVPRO of Bellingham's busy season starts with the heavy fall rains. Our summers are beautiful and mostly dry, but fall hits hard and rain becomes the norm.
One gray fall day our office was contacted by a concerned family with a wet kitchen ceiling. We dispatched our certified water techs to figure out the problem.
The wet ceiling and heavy recent rains lead the technicians to the attic for a close look at the roof's underbelly. It didn't take long for the crew to realize the issue. Almost directly above the bulging kitchen ceiling a steady drip of water had damaged the sheet rock below and the beginning stages of microbial growth had formed.
Assisted by the roofer on the outside and SERVPRO of Bellingham on the inside, our clients were able to get back to life as usual in a dry, safe, healthy home.
