Water Damage in a Furniture Store
In the midst of record breaking low temperatures that affected nearly the entire nation, SERVPRO of Sioux Falls received a number of calls stemming from a burst pipe. We answered the call for both residential and commercial customers. Our biggest job during the freeze was from a burst pipe in a home furniture store over in Marshall, Minnesota. After receiving the initial call, we mobilized two teams with our vehicles packed full of air movers and dehumidifiers to head over and help out.
Upon arrival, our team began the process of moving affected materials and got started on the extraction process. Proper drying cannot be completed without first extracting as much water as possible before placing drying equipment. On our first day there, we extracted over 7,000 lbs of water from the furniture store!
After the extraction was complete, we strategically placed our air movers and dehumidifiers in a fashion that created an optimal drying chamber. After placing equipment, we returned back to the shop to prepare for monitoring the next day.
Monitor and Adjust
Upon our return to the furniture store, our mitigation team took and recorded a number of atmospheric measurements, such as temperature and humidity, to check the progress of the drying process. After recording measurements, it was time to make some slight adjustments to our equipment and let them do their magic.
Final Step: Creating a Happy Customer!
After repeating the monitoring process one more day, our team was able to achieve the dry standard we had set out to achieve. Our quick response and knowledge of the drying process allowed the business to remain open throughout the entire process! Our customers were thrilled with the work we did, and creating happy customers is our main goal!
