Commercial Water Removal Coram – Employee Lounge Water Overflow

Many small commercial offices have an employee lounge with a fridge, perhaps a tiny stove, and a kitchen-style sink to wash and rinse dishes. When the water was left running by an employee, the sink overflowed, and water ran most of the night, covering the floor in the lounge area and nearby offices. An employee was distracted by an emergency phone call and forgot about turning the tap off.

The office manager called our SERVPRO office in Coram the next morning to help with commercial water removal. We responded immediately to help this customer. We know how important it is to keep an office open and able to respond to its customers. Any downtime can mean lost customers and lost revenue for the business.

One of the employees had shut the water off when she arrived at the office in the morning. Our team arrived to find water soaking the carpets in the lounge area, three nearby offices, and a conference room used to greet customers and hold meetings with clients. Our technicians quickly got to work using water removal equipment to remove excess water from the carpeting.

We removed all of the chairs and tables from the offices, conference room, and lounge areas. Tables and desks, along with computer systems, were removed, leaving a clear area for our team to work. After extracting water from the carpeting, large air movers were brought in to further dry the carpets and linoleum flooring in the lounge area. Warm, dry air from other office areas was blown into the affected area and exhausted out the emergency exit door at the rear of the building.

The employees were able to use the lounge area later that day. We checked all areas with moisture meters to confirm the area was completely dry. The offices and conference room were available for occupancy several days later after the carpets had dried entirely. Carpets are prone to ripple and separate from the backing when it becomes wet. The carpeting was relatively new, and the quick action by our SERVPRO team mitigated the damage to the flooring.
