Flood Repair – Water in Church Basement

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in Blog, Commercial, Water Damage.

A pastor of a small New Hampshire church was devastated when a toilet supply line broke and sent tons of water draining into the basement down below. Knowing he needed flood repair services, he quickly sprang into action and called a plumber to fix the supply line and stop the water loss before the problem grew out of hand. The plumber recommended a cleaning and restoration service that he was familiar with, and in no time, Soil-Away’s flood repair team arrived on the scene to help. The emergency crew inspected the building for damage and gave the pastor an estimate of the repair and restoration costs. The pastor was thankful to learn that the damage could be repaired quickly and the church would be ready to service the community the upcoming week.

Flood Repair in a Church Building

The restoration process was no different than any other flood repair project. The excess flood water in the basement was removed using powerful truck mounted vacuums, and the remaining moisture that was detected by the moisture meters was thoroughly dried using commercial air movers and dehumidifiers. The customer did have a few items that needed drying and sanitizing after the flood, so the team of experts hauled all the items to the drying room to be restored using superior technology. A few of the repaired items that were included were bibles, manuals, chairs, desks, podiums, trophies, and old picture frames. These items weren’t majorly affected by the water loss, but a little time in the drying room did help to prevent any prolonged damage from occurring. 

The customer was happy to have the flood water in the basement removed, and all his belongings properly dried without the hassle of hiring multiple contractors to repair the lightly damaged items.  After completely drying the area, the crew treated that space with an anti-microbial agent to ensure that potential mold growth was minimized. The flood repair was successful, and the basement was back to pre-existing condition. Upon completion the crew leader reviewed the building with the pastor to provide a few tips to protect the basement from any disaster in the future.  Church leadership happily stated that they would recommend Soil-Away to anyone who may need the help in the future.
