High School Gym Floods!
Disaster of the month:
Winter 2017. Buchanan High School locker room and gym floor floods from a broken fire suppression line in the ceiling. The fire department turned off the suppression line and a plumber repaired it. SERVPRO was deployed to extract water and dry affected areas.
SERVPRO set 11 dehumidifiers and 60 air movers in the gym. Air was circulated under the floor by removing base board and injecting heated air under a plastic containment for 6 days.
During this dehumidification process a scheduled basketball game was held in the gym. SERVPRO manipulated the equipment so the game could be played.
Due to the immediate action taken by school administrators the gym floor will be refinished vs. replaced. Avoiding a more costly and time consuming insurance claim.
The school was extremely happy with the fast, professional response SERVPRO provided.
