When Water Damage Meets Higher Learning, SERVPRO Is Here to Help!
When the call came in from the University of Louisville dormitory about a frozen water pipe that burst on the 4th floor we knew it was important to get there right away to start mitigating the problem. The first crews on the scene located the source of the water damage and made sure the stop any further damage to the facility.
Once the water was stopped our crews began working right away to pack out the contents of the affected dormitory rooms with the help of a moving company. All of the personal items and furniture had to be removed from the rooms in order to start the demo of the floors, baseboards, and affected drywall.
Once the rooms were ready our demo crews started working to remove all of the necessary flooring, baseboards, and drywall to start the drying process. Dehumidifiers and air movers were set, along with a desiccant to dry the massive building. We are working around the clock to be sure the facility is up and running as quickly and safely as possible for the students who need to return to campus.
