SERVPRO of Ocala Crews Responding to Low Rise Water Damage-Built 1931

SERVPRO of Ocala was called out early morning because of a large water damage that begin on the top floor (7th floor) and ran down all floors and even the elevator shaft. Our crews worked non stop extracting water from top to bottom of this low rise, seven floor building. Also the manpower it takes to haul up flights of stairs all the dehumidifiers, air movers, air scrubbers, trash cans for collecting water etc. because the elevator was out of service. Special drying equipment had to be placed in all areas because the building build in the 1931 and the walls are made of plaster. Wet material was taken out of the building as well as the many offices effected by the water. This means many businesses were shut down temporary while crews extracted water from all the offices in this low rise. Also the drying equipment displaced business owners and employees for a few days. Power boxes had to be used throughout this structure to supply the much needed electricity to run all the drying equipment.

Large College Gym Suffers Hard Rain Damage

SERVPRO of Ocala crews were called out when this local large college gymnasium was flooded when strong winds and heavy rains covered the Marion County Florida areas. The college was having their gym commercial roof replaced. The roofers had left for the weekend and had placed plastic tarps and sand bags to cover the roof where they had not finished. No one ever thought a sudden rain storm so violent would dump tons of water so fast. Theses types of rain events are common in Florida moving fast but bring heavy rains and winds. Many other buildings in Ocala Florida were damaged that same night. Its just unfortunate that the roof of this college gym was not finished and the strong winds blew the tarps and moved the sand bags to allow much water to get inside and onto the Gym wood floors.

Quick Response ERP Commercial

They used shop vacuums, mops and towels to try to stop the damage from getting worse. They quickly gave up and called SERVPRO of Ocala because of their ERP in place and that this size of a water damage is too large for them to mitigate. The SERVPRO of Ocala team loaded with drying equipment, man power and expertise to extract the water arrived with in an hour. The marketing manager got on the premises first to assess the damage and begin the communication regarding emergency mitigation and restoration with the client. The ERP client was very, very impressed with the response time and how in sync the SERVPRO of Ocala team acted in the overall process.
