At Pride Restoration of NC, we are always ready to tackle the unexpected. When the Child Development Center faced extensive water damage in Wilmington, NC, we knew how critical it was to act fast. This facility wasn’t just a building; it was a nurturing space for children with special needs, aged 3-5, where they received essential education and therapy services.
A Leaking Water Fountain Caused Widespread Water Damage
After a water fountain had sprung a leak over the weekend, water had seeped into the bathrooms, hallways, foyer, classrooms, office, playroom, and kitchen. The water damage it caused threatened not only the structure but also the health and safety of the children. Our goal was to restore the center quickly and efficiently, ensuring a safe, dry, and healthy environment for the kids to return to.
A Unique Approach to Commercial Water Damage
- Immediate Response: We arrived on site promptly after the call. Quick action is crucial in water damage situations to prevent mold growth and further damage.
- Assessment and Planning: Using moisture detectors, we assessed the extent of the water damage. This step was vital to create a tailored restoration plan.
- Water Extraction and Drying: We used industrial fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers. These powerful tools effectively removed moisture from the air and surfaces.
- Flood Cuts and Material Removal: In areas where the water damage was severe, we performed flood cuts. This involved removing sections of drywall to prevent mold and structural issues. We also removed all of the damaged drywall, insulation, flooring, cabinetry, and furniture.
- Monitoring and Moisture Readings: Continuous monitoring was crucial. We conducted multiple drywall moisture readings after the initial cleanup to ensure complete dryness throughout the facility.
- Sanitization and Safety Check: After drying, we sanitized all affected areas. Ensuring a hygienic environment was a must for the health of the children.
A Completely Restored Child Development Center
The project was a success. We removed all of the damaged materials, ensuring that all areas were dry, clean, and safe for the children and staff. We also completely inspected the rest of the facility to make sure there was nothing missed and to ensure they wouldn’t have any after effects of mold. Our efficient and thorough work allowed the center to reopen quickly, minimizing disruption to the children’s essential learning and therapy sessions.
Why This Project Mattered to Us
For our team at Pride Restoration of NC, this was more than a restoration job. It was about restoring a safe haven for young learners. In a center where vulnerable children receive critical support, ensuring a healthy environment is not just a duty but a commitment to their well-being.
