Weekend Commercial Water Damage
It was an extremely busy weekend for our water damage clean up technicians. The extreme cold played havoc on water pipes throughout Wayne and Lackawanna Counties.
The crews were dispatched to a Scranton office building were a second floor pipe in a mechanical room broke in the overnight when the building was unoccupied. The water flowed for several hours before being discovered causing damage on three floors. An underground parking garage was like a lake.
The SERVPRO of Wayne and South Lackawanna Counties water certified restoration technicians led by a IICRC crew chief inspected the areas for safety and began the drying out process by extracting the standing water and wet carpets before setting up equipment to facilitate the drying. They worked a long day in cold temperatures to ensure the building could open the following day. Limiting business interruption is a key goal of ours. Mission accomplished.
