Sprinkler Line Break Causes Water Damage in Crystal City Apartment Building

Posted by on Wednesday, July 27th, 2022 in Water Damage Restoration

Water damage is one of the most severe problems a residential building can encounter. A broken sprinkler line can affect units and hallways on every floor. In addition to causing significant structural damage, excess water and moisture can result in mold and mildew growth, which poses a severe health risk to occupants.

It is imperative to contact a company that specializes in water damage restoration, such as Purofirst, as soon as possible if you suspect water damage has occurred. The sooner the professionals work on restoring the property to its pre-loss condition, the greater the chance of minimizing further damage.

18 Floors of Water Damage Restoration

Recently, our team received a call at approximately 7 PM on a Saturday from an apartment complex service manager requesting water damage restoration service. A sprinkler line broke on the upper level of the building, above the three main elevators, leading to water damage in several units and hallways on each floor, from the 18th floor down to the first floor.

After the call, our experienced technicians arrived at the apartment building located in Crystal City, VA, and began our work. First, our crew extracted the water from all 18 floors and set up our state-of-the-art drying equipment. We also toured the affected areas to assess the damage and determine what other tools might be necessary to accomplish our work. We returned Sunday to continue placing air movers throughout the building and inspect more units. On Monday, we started the demolition of affected areas in the hallways.

The drying process took less than five days to finish. We also repaired the drywall and painted the affected areas when the building was thoroughly moisture-free. It took two weeks to dry the areas successfully and fix the necessary damage. It was quite an undertaking for our Purofirst technicians, but it’s nothing we couldn’t handle. The service manager and residents were thrilled with our response time and work.

We congratulate our amazing team for their fantastic work!
