DAMAGE MANAGEMENT


ail to prepare, you prepare hat your business is back up should the worst happen.


Signing up to Restoration Response is free of charge and gives users a guaranteed response time of 2-4 hours following a call. With an average repair cost of £2,000 per incident for an escape of water, according to the Association of British Insurers, fast response is the difference between a low-cost repair and an expensive, on- going restoration.


Case Study ServiceMaster Clean Devon was called in by International Dance Supplies (IDS), whose Devon-offi ce was seriously damaged by an escape of water. The water had spread across the fi rst fl oor open plan offi ce, saturated carpets and fl oors and leaked through the ceiling of the ground fl oor, bringing down ceiling tiles in the process.


ServiceMaster Clean’s experts were on site within four hours and were able to utilise specialist drying equipment immediately. The team removed carpets and a thick layer of adhesive underneath to allow better access to the concrete fl oor for drying. Once the concrete fl oor was exposed, the technicians installed an advanced drying system which involved tenting the affected area for concentrated drying.


The team was able to facilitate a temporary system for staff to move around the building safely to ensure the premises could remain open and business could continue as usual. As the building remained open, drying processes were expertly carried out to remove moisture as quickly as possible to reduce the chance of bacteria growing and toxins spreading around the building.


Allison Glanville, business administration manager at IDS, said: “After major water damage at our premises, ServiceMaster Clean was outstanding in dealing with the situation. They were very mindful of our business needs, caring and very professional throughout the whole drying out process. I would not hesitate to call them again, should the need arise and I would certainly recommend them to others.”
