A Broken Roof Drain Caused Water Damage to Largo Store
For many buildings, it is the roof drain that keeps water damage away from the inside. A roof drain works by moving excess water off of roofs and into piping, which then transports it to sewage drainage pipes on the ground level. So, when this system fails, it leaves all of the rain on the roof, which can then cause problems.
In the case of the local Largo store, the water damage came from a failure in the roof drain, which "caused [the] retail store to flood." Fortunately, the water damage was limited to one section of the store, making it easier for SERVPRO of Largo to address as quickly as possible.
Here at SERVPRO, we understand how important the operation hours of a business are. The longer the front doors are shut, the less income the store makes. For this reason, SERVPRO always rushes to the job site to begin work swiftly and to get the store open once more. "Our team responded fast to minimize the damage."
Due to the many carpets inside, our team of water restoration technicians (WRT) brought along extraction wands, which are incredibly useful for pulling water from carpets while drying them simultaneously. Other devices commonly used for swiftly pulling water out from inside of a building are rover-mounted extractors, portable pumps, and wet/dry vacuums. By using all of the advanced technology in our arsenal, our Institution of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration (IICRC-) certified technicians could quickly remove the water and minimize the chances of microbial growth from occurring.
Once finished with the extraction, our SERVPRO WRT focused on setting up some drying equipment, such as dehumidifiers and flood drying mats, to be sure that the inside of the building had been returned to appropriate moisture levels. Our goal is always to make the water damage "Like it never even happened."
