Water Damage Caused By A Raccoon In Salter Path NC

The majority of water damages are caused by plumbing failures or acts of Mother Nature; however, there are certainly exceptions.

A local church in Salter Path NC called us out when a raccoon played havoc with their roof while gaining access to the attic.  It all came to light after a couple of heavy days of rain.  Thankfully for us, the raccoon had been removed before we arrived! 

SERVPRO could see wet ceilings, walls and floors in the section of the church building near where the roof was compromised.   As always, we used moisture meters to determine how far the water had spread and to what degree the different building materials were wet. 

We took photos and documented all of the other information so we could plan a course of action.  Then the water was extracted, wet materials removed and dehumidifiers and air movers set in place.  The best part is that everything was dry and our equipment was removed in time for Sunday service!
