Kalispell Rainstorm Soaks a Conference Room
The rain drenched the carpet and soaked into the lower level of the walls in this Kalispell office suite. Overnight the water wicked into the cardboard of the gypsum boards ruining them even as it settled on the commercial-grade carpeting. SERVPRO techs can "ride" rover water extractors to add extra weight and squeeze the water out of the short-napped fiber. With a little luck, the glue will hold, since there is no padding, and heated air movers and dehumidifiers can reach our drying goals and preserve the flooring. Removal of the walls also allows for inspecting and draining any liquid by the metal studs and plates — no guessing on dryness. We can measure with thermal hydrometers and sensors and then document our findings, which is an added benefit for our client and the insurance carrier. When it is done, it really is done. High and dry, the SERVPRO way.
