Do You Struggle With Commercial Water Damage Remediation in Brandywine?
Professional Commercial Water Removal Helps Re-open Brandywine Restaurant Faster
Water spills can cause severe damage leading to the closure of a business. In Brandywine, a water pipe burst in an apartment unit situated above a restaurant filling it with water, thus leading to closure. Some water was trapped in the ceiling while the rest pooled on the floor, almost an inch deep.
Various factors can make commercial water removal cases in Brandywine challenging to address. However, with support from a professional team such as SERVPRO, it is easier to address all challenges that arise. At the hotel, the primary challenge was the delayed fixing of the leak since the owner of the apartment was away at the time. The passage of time creates the opportunity for the water to spread, affecting more materials and installations compared to a leak dealt with instantly.
The restaurant was closed to allow water removal, inspection, and cleanup to restore the pre-damaged conditions. However, extending such a closure would hurt most workers who rely on it for daily upkeep. Our SERVPRO technicians were tasked with finding ways to expedite the removal.
As we waited for plumbers to fix the damaged pipe, we did a partial content move out to halt further deterioration. Unlike a full pack which takes time and resources, the partial move-out relocates items to a section within the same property, so it is doable in a matter of minutes.
Once the plumbers fixed the leak, we embarked on removing the water. Our SERVPRO technicians drilled weep holes in the ceiling to drain water trapped there. When drilling, we start with a hole close to the edge and only move inwards when that hole stops leaking to prevent catastrophic outcomes such as the collapse of the ceiling. Wet-vacuuming with a truck-mounted water extractor helped remove most water pooling on the floors. After dealing with surface water, we set up air movers and dehumidifiers to extract moisture absorbed by materials.
