John Deere Manufacturing Calls On SERVPRO of Southwest Waukesha County After Water Damage

Damaged Conference Room Ceiling Caused By This Suspended Water Pipe That Burst #SERVPROsouthwestwaukeshacounty #waterdamage

John Deere, a large national agricultural manufacturing company had a pipe burst just below the acoustic tiled ceiling in a conference room. The water leaked across 5000 + sqft of the building.  The water affected the carpet and drywall in the main office area, one large office space with over 30 cubicles, the hallways, multiple bathrooms, and even an elevator shaft. The manufacturer decided to call in SERVPRO of Southwest Waukesha County to help them get their space back into order.

Our team of SERVPRO of Southwest Waukesha County leaders met with plant managers, operations managers, and office managers to formulate a action plan. We had to coordinate with their in-house electricians and plumbers to coordinate work to get done so the SERVPRO crew could come in and extract and dry the structure.  Documentation was completed in order to share with the insurance company.  When all the details and preliminary work was completed, SERVPRO of Southwest Waukesha County got to work to mitigate the water damage. Weighted extraction was performed on the carpeted areas, rubber cove was removed from areas with wet drywall and production technicians drilled coring holes in the drywall below the top of the rubber cove for air flow purposes in order to quickly and efficiently dry the structure.

After the water and wet materials were removed,  SERVPRO started to set a very large number of drying equipment pieces to dry out a structure of this size.  The drying equipment included using air movers, axial (top down) drying fans and large self-purging commercial grade dehumidifiers. While or production staff was performing their tasks the SERVPRO of Southwest Waukesha County Production Manager and the SERVPRO Mitigation Manager continued documentation and organization of sub-contractors needed for supplemental power, plumbers for plumbing repairs, and the clearing and inspections of the elevator shaft.

This entire structure was dried and restored within 5 days.  The SERVPRO of Southwest Waukesha County team was there to make it "Like it never even happened."
