Commercial Water Damage in Oxford
The winter season is always a busy time for water and storm restoration services. Frozen pipes, flooding and other water related issues have impacted some of our local Chester County homes and commercial properties, including this business in Oxford.
A pipe had broken on the first floor of the facility, leaking water onto the carpet. The water continued to travel through the ceiling and into the basement, leaving four inches of water in that space as well. To make matters worse, the water damage had occurred during business hours so they were forced to close until our team at SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford could restore the affected areas. We visited the property immediately to minimize the damage and downtime for the business.
During this water restoration process, we tore out all damaged components from the leak, including the carpet and drywall. Once all signs of initial water damage were removed, we placed a total of 28 air movers and 4 dehumidifiers in the Oxford building for three full days. This allowed us to properly remove any remaining signs of water damage while fully drying the structure. Once all areas were thoroughly cleaned with our anti-microbial cleaning agent, the business quickly reopened.
SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford continues to assist our local businesses with their water, storm, and fire restoration needs. We are proud to be a part of keeping our Chester County community running when it matters most!
