Storm Damage in Cincinnati Ohio
It rained cats and dogs yesterday. We weren’t sure it was ever going to stop. Luckily our crews were geared up and ready to go when we got the call for a commercial flood in Cincinnati, Ohio. While they didn’t sustain storm damage, they did have a fridge supply line leak. Two floors and numerous offices were affected by this leak.
We got the call from the property manager at 8:44 AM. Our crews were on site by 9:32 AM. We immediately began extracting water from the carpet. The carpet was so saturated you could see footprints every time you took a step! Afterward, they started removing cove bases so they could drill holes in the drywall. These holes allow air to flow behind the affected wall which, aids in the drying process.
The ceiling tiles also needed to be removed. The water from above had saturated those as well. Once all the demo was completed, our crews placed equipment on both levels. Most water damages take about 3 days to dry out. A larger like this one loss will sometimes take 5 days.
So what happens after the 3rd or 5th day? We keep working! We offer free repair estimates to all of our clients. So if you don't know who to use for your repairs, SERVPRO has your back! We want to make you feel like this water damage "never even happened."
