SERVPRO Remediates Water Damage in Local Nursing Home
Many devices can cause water damage to your commercial or residential property. However, despite how many potential causes there are, it is always essential to swiftly react when you discover water damage on your property. Quicker action leads to a smoother remediation.
When the staff of a local Tallahassee nursing home discovered water damage on the first floor, they immediately called for professional help. SERVPRO responded immediately about receiving the call and got a team to the nursing home as quickly as possible. Here at SERVPRO, we take time-management very seriously and always take steps to ensure we arrive at the scene of a water loss swiftly.
After a brief investigation, SERVPRO learned that a "faulty fire sprinkler discharged thousands of gallons of water onto the first floor of the building." The first thing our team has to do is to remove the standing water inside quickly, to prevent microbial growth for the excess moisture. However, SERVPRO also had to take the source of the water into concern. "Water that sits for a long time in a fire system is usually contaminated."
Extra care must go into removing black water from a property, including throwing away any carpeting that has been impacted by it. After our team of excellently trained technicians removed the water using extraction wands and wet/dry vacuums, SERVPRO also "removed the drywall in the affected area." Making flood cuts allows us to minimize the chances of mold growth and dispose of contaminated material. Afterward, "the area was completely dried and sanitized using non-toxic, environmentally safe products."
The dry out the floors and the walls, SERVPRO can use advanced technological devices, including air movers, dehumidifiers, heaters, and axial fans. When used in conjunction, these devices helped pull moisture from the structure of the nursing home. To ensure that the moisture levels were back to normal, and to ensure there were no hidden pockets of water, SERVPRO can use moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras. Our goal is always to be as thorough as possible, so we can make it "Like it never even happened."
