Water Leak Damages Stairway in Westwood
A water leak from a second-floor bathroom can cause extensive damage since water runs downhill. In a California home, including Westwood, the structural integrity of the stairs is even more important than the cosmetic appearance of the surface steps. When the wood treads are saturated and beginning to warp there is a concern that the stringers, the supports for the staircase, may be weakened. SERVPRO can inspect the water damage and determine the proper course of action to minimize loss and maximize safety. The After Photo shows stripped away tread planks and risers trim so that the supports can be dried quickly. Rely on SERVPRO to keep you and your family safe.
