SERVPRO To The Rescue

11/30/2018 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO it can feel like we're in the Cavalry coming to the rescue

One of the great things about working for SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield is that we often get to do amazing work. Nothing feels better than helping a homeowner overcome damage from a roof collapse or major fire or mold infestation or water damage. At times it feels like we’re the Cavalry coming to the rescue.

Here are two recent examples.  

Burst Pipe Floods A Nonprofit’s 75,000 Square Foot Headquarters
Water flooded a 75,000 square foot Connecticut nonprofit agency in 2018 when a sprinkler pipe burst. The agency’s ability to serve their many clients and keep their employees safe were greatly compromised. SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield performed emergency water extraction of several inches of water. Then we completely dried the 75,000 square foot area with industrial dryers. We tested for mold and mildew. Our crew removed and replaced all damaged building materials.

During the work we discovered and removed hazardous asbestos and applied an anti-microbial spray. Because of our work the nonprofit was back serving clients within days. The building was safer and in better shape after we left than before the pipe break occurred.

Saving $30,000 For Bloomfield Homeowner
Also, in 2018, a Bloomfield, Connecticut homeowner suffered a major water loss behind expensive kitchen cabinets. Most cleanup and restoration crews would have done the easy, standard fix. They would just cut through the cabinets to fix the plumbing. But we don’t do just standard work without investigating to see if there’s a better solution.

SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield chose to save the cabinets by cutting through the pipes below the cabinets. Making this creative decision made the pipe repair work a tad more expensive ($800) but it saved the kitchen cabinets that the homeowner had paid $30,000 for. You should have seen the smile of relief on that homeowner’s face.
