Commercial Water Cleanup In Seattle Hotel
Safety During Commercial Water Cleanup in Seattle Hotel Lobby
When a business relies on heavy foot traffic as part of their business model, the need for safe commercial water cleanup is crucial. The goal of SERVPRO is to help businesses experience the least amount of loss and undergo mitigation as safely and quickly as possible.
In the case of a hotel in Seattle requiring commercial water cleanup, SERVPRO technicians arrived on-site and determined that slip and fall accidents were a danger from the wet tile floor. They taped off the water loss area and put up signs to ensure while the rest of the hotel lobby remained open, a wandering guest in the hotel did not endanger themselves during the cleanup and drying process.
Removal of Water and Wet Items
The water came from a large scale plumbing leak in a single area of the lobby. The technicians used their moisture detection equipment to track the migration path of the water and extracted the standing puddles. A single wall received the effects of the plumbing issue, and only that area required the removal of the sheetrock for both airflow to dry inside the wall cavity and for repairs to the pipe. The rubber-backed industrial rugs did not absorb any water and only needed cleaning for reuse.
Disposal of Some Furnishings
While hardwood furnishings hold up well against most water exposure, the composite wood furnishings in the lobby that received water damage did not have restoration or repair potential due to the damage to the bases. The techs noted these items in detail, including photos for use by the hotel when filing an insurance claim.
Drying and Restoration
The professional drying equipment SERVPRO utilizes use such a high-velocity airstream that it forces embedded moisture to rise and is ported away by their dehumidification equipment. This begins a cycle of progressively drier air circulating and results in eliminating the moisture.
