Pensacola Warehouse Gets Flooded from a Tropical Storm
The rainwater poured through the bay doors of this municipal maintenance building in Pensacola and quickly covered the concrete floor. Our technicians quickly arrived and relocated some inventory to prevent on-going water damage. Once we secured the items, we then used a truck-mounted pump to extract the pooling water. Concrete, though hard, is porous and does retain moisture which takes patience for proper drying. We positioned a number of low grain dehumidifiers to capture most of the remaining moisture in the air. We ran the air movers to speed up the air circulation thereby increasing the speed of evaporation. By utilizing our training and equipment, we mitigated secondary water damage to the inventory and flooring, with little disruption to the day-to-day operations of the facility.
