Frozen Pipes in your Southwest Missouri Hotel
During a recent Polar Vortex, a Springfield area hotel suffered burst shower line on the 3rd floor causing damage to 6 guest rooms, extending down into all three levels including the main level of the hotel’s common areas, hallways, laundry room, gym and the lobby.
As you can imagine this caused the hotel staff a headache in having to relocate guests to other rooms in unaffected areas of the hotel, this can be a significant concern for hotel staff as this can lead to lost revenue and safety hazards. To compound the issue our area was facing terrible road conditions due to ice and record cold temperatures. SERVPRO teams gathered their tools and safety mad the trek to begin mitigation efforts. Our teams safely completed the demolition that was needed in many of the spaces, including the removal of ceilings, sheetrock and insulation we did minimize demolition as much as possible while still removing what is absolutely needed in order to get the structure safe and try. After 6 days the structure was completely dry and ready to make any repairs that were necessary. A quick demolition, drying response helps minimize damage in the long run and ensure repairs can be made in a timely manner, so your business is not disrupted any further. While we hope this never happens to you, if you ever find yourself in this situation, please call SERVPRO of Springfield / Greene County at 417-865-7711, we will act quickly to make sure and take care of your water damaged hotel.
