Commercial Flooding to an Office Suite in Downtown Knoxville
A busted water main flooded the floor of this Downtown Knoxville office building over a weekend, of course! The pooling water wicked slightly into the walls because the vinyl coving helped to keep it out. If SERVPRO is called in for water removal and mitigation the first step is to move sensitive electronic equipment and furnishings from the affected offices to a drier location, hopefully within the building. Then water extraction using Rovers and truck-mounted pumps begins to reduce the effects of the water. The After Photo depicts a discarded commercial grade carpet and coving to expose the wall cavities to the moisture removal with the help of increased air circulation and dehumidifiers. The white blocks under some of the furniture further protect against secondary water damage. If you need rapid help to secure your workplace, give us a call at (865) 862-8907.
