Swift Solutions for Sudden Soakings

When it comes to plumbing emergencies, a burst pipe can be extremely alarming.

This was the case for a commercial property in West Town, who had a category 2 situation on their hands.

Water Damage: Burst Pipe and Tub Drain Leak

Rescue Restoration recently received a call regarding a burst pipe and a tub drain leak in West Town. Our team knew we had to respond urgently, given the posing threats of a situation like this.

Water Damage Restoration Services Performed

In order to control the situation, we set up containments to isolate the affected area so we can perform effective restoration. We also set up equipment to help dry out the area.

Our team opened up two areas in the ceiling, which exposed the pipe and the tub drain area. From there we were able to set up air scrubbers, fans, and dehumidifiers to remove contaminants from the air, such as bacteria. This is essential when doing water removal, to eliminate the moisture and bacteria from the air.
