Water Damage At Tenth Street Elementary
A couple weeks ago we received a call on a Thursday from the facilities manager for Anniston city schools. They had water damage. A small hole in a pipe on the second floor of the school had leaked and damaged both upstairs and down. Fortunately, the school was on fall break so students weren’t on the premises. Just think what could have happened if no one had been to the school for all of fall break. However, with it being fall break that meant we had to have the water extracted and the school dry for the kids to return on Monday morning. Most people would panic and scream “oh no”, but not us. That’s not a problem for SERVPRO of Anniston, Gadsden and Marshall County. It’s what we specialize in. We quickly jumped in our trucks and crews headed their way. We used extraction machines and rovers (like a Segway extraction unit) to remove the water before setting up drying equipment. We cataloged the non-salvageable items and removed the debris from the fallen ceiling tiles. Sunday we sent a crew to mop and ensured everything was ship shape for the kids to return.
