Torrance Case Study
Before calling us, a Torrance medical office experienced seasonal water damage and flooding in their office. After rains, water would find its way into the building. Following a strong downpour, the office was inundated and the staff called us to remediate the problem. While removing the standing water, we would have to remove about approximated 300 to 400 gallons of standing water from the affected areas. Plumber technician cleared clumps of leaves blocking the rain gutters on the roof. We realized that the rain gutters were feeding into the sewage system. The improper pipe routing was causing the chronic flooding problems. The roof gutters and downspousts was allow them to drain freely to the exterior. We removed as much water as possible and installed fans and dehumidifiers to dry the building structure. When drying was finished some drywall was repaired and painted . The office was in new condition. Actually, the office looked in better condition because the problem was corrected the faulty plumbing that was the root cause of the water damage. The office is now dry year round and operates more smoothly, with lowered stress levels and lower maintenance costs.
