Museum flood in St. Joseph, MI
WATER LINES BREAK WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT.
Source: Drinking fountain supply line. 50 PSI output 1,000 gallons of cat 1 water overnight. Water affected 3,800 sq. ft. of carpet, walls, baseboard, contents. Luckily this happened on the basement level of a historic building. No contents were lost, just some drywall and baseboard that needed to be replaced. It did require a 5 day dry out. Fortunately, we were able to work around administrative staff and keep them operational. This was a high visibility job downtown St. Joseph. Museum staff were thrilled with the response, trained workers made it “Like it never even happened.”
