Wet Walls Water Stained Walls from a Boiler Loss

Is your Home or cabin's heating sources properly maintained? It is important to have them properly maintained to avoid failure that can lead to further damage. The latest scenario is from a second home and the boiler failed. The water through the baseboard heat then froze during the cold Michigan winter months. Once temps rose and the pipes thawed, the split in a few different locations causing water to spill from the second floor all the way down to the crawl space effecting every room in the house. The homeowner was not there at the time and was not able to turn the water off in a timely manner. The condensation from this caused the insulation in the walls to become soaked along with the river of water that was coming out of their crawl space. 

SERVPRO of Mt Pleasant, Clare and Houghton Lake was able to get out the property and get the water extracted and the walls opened up to allow the condensation to evaporate to limit further damage.
