This large building took on water from a storm that flooded areas of this structure leaving the water to spread into the elevator with no place to go. To the surprise of people trying to use the elevator the shock of 1-2 feet of water as the doors opened was a bit frightening. Water can do as much damage as a fire in many ways, you either deal with soot from a fire or mold from the water. Both are comparable damage.
*Hidden places that water can travel, which can affect the way a device functions or could possibly completely shut down.
*Any object that is porous, spaces, holes, that any liquid or air can go directly through. Many of those items may have to be thrown out due to eventual rotting inside or unstable strength and more than likely due to the storm it may be sewer water damage even if you think it is not. SERVPRO PROFESSIONALS know the difference.
*A ceiling or structure of a building or home can cave in under the weight or winds in a storm.
*Every emergency of this kind has a uniqueness depending on how much water and where.
*Drying, containing, cleaning, disinfecting and in many cases tearing down or discarding is the same as any other unforeseen disaster.
