Flooded Office Space in Jacksonville
The reflection of the water on the carpeting in this Jacksonville office suggests that some significant extraction is needed, and quickly. The electronic equipment and the chairs and desks can be moved to a dry area of the workplace by SERVPRO technicians as they begin to use pumps and wet-vacs. Because the water soaked into the commercial grade carpet resulting in delamination, it was not salvageable. The small cut-out of the drywall and removal of the baseboards allowed for drying the wall cavities and saving further demolition. SERVPRO techs can also place white blocks under the heavier desks to prevent water wicking into the legs that can weaken the sturdiness of these pieces and also prevent staining of the finish. The After Photo depicts how a water removal service should look, meaning minimal disruptions and rapid return to normal office activities.
