Safety for the residence and the crew were reviewed and procedures were put into place. Quick and timely water extraction began throughout the night. The crews worked till the early morning the next day extracting water and placing equipment. All preventative measures to stop any additional damage due to the burst water pipe were completed before the team went home.
The next day, each room was inspected using moisture meters and infrared cameras, then the correct number of fans and dehumidifiers were added to effectively dry out each room and hallway.
Makeshift plastic dehumidifier bins were created to aid in water removal. Extra power boxes were added to maximize the use of equipment placed and careful to not overload each room or hallway to maximize the power needed for the equipment being used. Several resident rooms were opened to become part of the drying chambers to aid in quick and effective drying. The job was monitored around the clock.
This was ServiceMaster by Glenn's BIGGEST equipment-wise job ever to date! 366 fans & and 47 dehumidifiers!
ServiceMaster by Glenn's was up to the challenge working 18-hour days for 4 straight days to get things under control, dry out the building, and help the residents return to their homes.
