Damaged Caused by a Sprinkler!
We recently received a call from an Optometric office in Arcadia where a pipe connected to a water sprinkler in the exterior of the building burst and caused water to leak into the main room of the office, leaving standing water for a few hours and causing damage to the area.
They reached out to us for assistance. We arrived quickly to inspect the situation and begin the restoration process. Our Project Manager inspected the damage and saw that the laminate flooring, lower walls, and some cabinets were either damaged or contained high moisture levels. We then extracted the water and set up plastic containment around some of the business materials so that they would not get damaged. We set up several air movers and dehumidifiers in necessary areas to speeden up the drying process. Because we set up the equipment swifty we were able to dry out a good portion of the affected area within a few days. Thus, reducing the amount of demoing that had to be done. The areas that were not salvageable we removed the damaged material; allowing the owner to begin the replacement process. The owner was impressed with the amount of time we were taking during this entire procedure and was satisfied that they had reached out to us.
