The attic is the forgotten room at the top of your home, filled with priceless heirlooms and worthless junk. It’s also dark and warm half of the year.
What does that mean?
It means a leak in your attic could ruin your week. (If there’s a leek in your attic, though, you just have a delicious and nutritious snack!) Mold, water damage, and general “funk” can start to develop without you even realising it! Go up into your attic more than twice a year (before and after Christmas) and check for any leaking. Bonus points if you catch it before it puddles up and warps the wood up there! Do be careful not to fall through the ceiling, though. That’s always a horrible and hilarious way to visit the hospital.
But what can you do if you are too late, and a sixth Great Lake has formed up there, along with its own biome and new flora and fauna?
Call SERVPRO of Burlington NC. We specialise in repairing water damage in attics, basements, or whatever they call the thing in between the attic and the basement. I believe the popular nomenclature is “house.”
The first thing we will do is get all that standing water out of the attic. Then, we will get industrial dryers up there to get the humidity up there back to what is optimal for the room. Finally, we will get to work making sure your documents and books up there are safe from permanent water damage.
If you find yourself in this situation, call SERVPRO and we can make it “Like it never even happened.”
