An Unexpected Gift

On Christmas evening, the Purofirst of Metropolitan Washington team received three calls for help from three separate and unrelated multi-family high-rises in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan. All three (two condominium complexes and one apartment complex) suffered water damage due to broken pipes. Each building had a minimum of eight stories worth of wet units.

The damage was immense, and there was no time to lose. We immediately began our work by evaluating the situation and taking steps to reduce further damage.

Our crew removed any furniture and other items that had been damaged beyond repair and used our high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) certified drying equipment to begin removing excess water from carpets and flooring. This process ensured that mold didn’t have a chance to grow and spread throughout the buildings. We worked through the night to mitigate the massive damages, a true “Christmas miracle” that required all hands on deck.

The drying efforts took over a week. At the time of this blog’s publication, we are providing estimates for the insurance companies to replace the removed flooring, cabinets, and drywall. We are grateful for our amazing technicians, who responded with urgency despite the holiday and displayed their extraordinary skills to our clients during a critical time. Congratulations, team!
