Water – Hot water system leaked in the ceiling cavity
Type of Loss: Water – Hot water system leaked in the ceiling cavity
The particle board subfloor above and ceilings in the downstairs lounge and kitchen areas were saturated.
Light fittings in the lounge and kitchen areas downstairs were removed to allow for ducting into the cavity for effective heat drying. The method installation allowed the area to still be habitable during drying works. This removed the need to cause further property damage drilling holes into the ceiling. Both ceiling and subfloor above were restored.
