SERVPRO of Jacksonville South Remediates Water Damage in a School

Call SERVPRO of Jacksonville South For Commercial Water Damage Restoration Services

Here at SERVPRO of Jacksonville South, we are dedicated to providing fast, professional, and excellent remediation services to commercial and residential properties. We immerse ourselves deeply in our communities, so every one of our neighbors knows that we have their back. We commit to leaving every customer feeling "Like it never even happened." 

Recently, a local school found itself in sudden and desperate need of Jacksonville water damage restoration services. Our team "responded immediately with experienced crews and the latest equipment." We pre-pack our lime-green vehicles, recognizable by our signature logo, so that we may go as soon as we possibly can. Some equipment we may use for a water clean up could be:

- Wet/dry vacuums 

- Dehumidifiers 

- Axial Fans

- Extractors

- Heaters 

The water damage throughout the school was extensive, but here at SERVPRO, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. Our technicians are experts, and we "strategically placed equipment to expedite the drying process and prevent mold and mildew." We spread our advanced technology throughout the affected hallways and classrooms as soon as we could. We even daisy-chained some equipment together to make full use of each available outlet. 

Exterior Relocation to Protect Furnishings

We set up an area on the school's lawn to move chairs and other furniture out onto, so we could dry them under the sun and free up space in the school. Meanwhile, inside, some other SERVPRO technicians from the team began to remove the standing water. At SERVPRO of Jacksonville South, we do not like to throw out materials that we can save. For this reason, we make flood cuts to damaged drywall to help reduce waste and the chances for microbial growth.

Inside both classrooms and hallways, "baseboards were removed and drywall was ventilated." SERVPRO cares about doing the best job we can, which means we have figured out how to get air into hard-to-reach places. For example, our technicians can use air blasting tubes to blow dry air between walls, which helps reduce moisture in the cavities. We can also use thermal imaging to search for hidden water pockets, making it easier to ensure that excess moisture is not left hidden away.  

Fortunately, this remediation was not as dire as you might imagine. We were able to keep bookshelves and books stocked inside different classrooms since they were up off the floor where the water was. With chairs on the desks and tables, we were able to set up our drying equipment. 

SERVPRO can use equipment designed to dry hardwood, tile, and carpets, making our services ideal for a school. After everything was completely dry, our technicians were able to begin restoration and repairs. Remember, we can "handle every aspect of the job from cleanup to restoration. One call, one company." Whether the situation is caused by ceiling leaks, burst pipes, or even sewage, we're here, and we can help you.
