Challenging Water Cleanup in Multi-Story Buildings

Downtown Knoxville features many skyscrapers and multi-level office buildings for several companies stationed in the city. When leaks and water damage occur, these structures require cleanup and drying to restore production and workflow. Our fast-responding SERVPRO team can help.

Concerns with Water Damage in Multi-Story Structures

Water cleanup in Downtown Knoxville can be challenging when the damaged area is far from the ground floor. Significant coordination and planning are necessary for a limited time window to impact the spreading water and avoid more substantial damage. Concerns for high-rise buildings include:

  • Spread to neighboring portions of the building
  • Moisture migration through structural systems
  • Confined space cleanup and drying
  • Challenge accessing damaged areas with traditional equipment

Extraction Efforts 

Managing extraction is the greatest challenge in overcoming water damage in a high-rise commercial structure. High-pressure pumps are the ideal choice when volume is a concern. Wet vacuums and other portable equipment meet most extraction and surface water removal requirements.

Content Removal and Relocation

Office buildings with water damage must have restorers managing exposed furniture, documents, electronics, and machinery. In addition, our mitigation team can help with item relocation on-site and provide cleaning and storage services nearby at our warehouse if necessary.

Placing Drying Equipment

Structural drying is also relative to the equipment that can be brought to the damaged level of the building. Often, effective drying is a combination of high-velocity air movers and dehumidifiers, including trailered desiccant models with quick connect hosing to reach multiple portions of a damaged office building simultaneously.

Water damage cleanup and recovery services should start right away. We have professionals ready to respond 24/7 for emergencies. In addition, our SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville Large Loss recovery team has industry-leading tools and training to help. Call us at (865) 862-8907.
