Cleaning Water Damage in a Lenoir Apartment Complex
The problem with multi-level apartment complexes is that if an upper floor has water damage, the lower floors probably do as well. In fact, any person living in a shared housing unit is at their neighbors' mercy — whether it's a fire, water damage, pests, or some other problem.
Recently, a Lenoir apartment complex called our team to extract and dry water that had overflowed from a bathtub in an upper unit and made its way down to the unit below. Fortunately, SERVPRO of Alexander, Caldwell, Burke and Catawba Counties has experience dealing with these kinds of situations, so we were able to immediately respond.
Cleaning Up Water Damage in Multiple Apartment Units
Although each commercial damage situation is unique, these types of water damages are cleaned up exactly the same way as a residential water job. In this situation, we had to work with both the property manager and the two tenants to coordinate the cleanup process.
Once we did the initial inspection and squared away the paperwork, our team began to extract the water from both floors and set air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process. Once everything was dried out, it was “Like it never even happened.”
Available to Clean Up Any Size Disaster
In this instance, the water damage was confined to only two smaller units, but we've helped apartment complexes clean up dozens of rooms at once after they’ve had fire and water damages.
