SERVPRO Equipment Used on Storm Job

SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County is Prepared for Large Water Jobs

SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County was called out to this property in Brookfield, WI because heavy rain from a storm caused water to back up into the basement.  This was not a small job.  The entire partially finished basement was filled with water.  This job required many different types and pieces of equipment.  

The water needs a place to drain and since there was no floor drain close to the dehumidifiers, we needed to use a water receptacle, a shelf to stack the equipment, axial fans to concentrate air straight down and standard fans to concentrate air across the floor.  This particular structure was dry within 4 days.
