Heavy Rains Caused this School to Flood over Memorial Day Weekend
Montgomery experienced heavy rains over the Memorial Day weekend. Because of this torrential downpour, one of our local schools sustained flooding throughout its ground floor. Flooding makes any building unsafe for occupation, and SERVPRO professionals know which methods rapidly restore safe conditions to any building. We addressed the school's indoor environmental issues that ranged from the immediate concerns of water spread out over floors to the elevated humidity in the air.
Using hand-operated extraction units, our crew members quickly removed the water covering the floors in hallways, classrooms, and entryways. While we extracted the water from this school's floors in its many hallways, leaving them dry and safe to walk upon again, we revealed the floors' shiny appearance. While walking the hallways at school, students should be able to concentrate on getting to their next class without the risk of slipping and falling. Such accidents happen with only a slight amount of water on the floor in a small area - flooding of merely half an inch can make attending school a highly risky adventure.
Many of the technicians at SERVPRO have families and want to know that their children learn in a safe and healthy environment. Not only can standing water help microbes begin infesting a building, but other types of damage from flooding can also occur. Rapidly removing the floodwaters prevents any of these possibilities from becoming a reality that no student should encounter.
Cleaning with antimicrobial agents ensures the elimination of any pathogens on surfaces. Although the floors received the brunt of the damage, we take the possibility of cross-contamination causing students to become ill from water-borne diseases seriously.
Our technicians want to make disasters like this recent flooding incident completely disappear, "Like it never even happened." When we correctly mitigate flooding and its effects, we render it unable to cause problems for the students attending this school and the staff responsible for their education.
