Concord Pittsfield School Closing
As you could imagine, no one can predict when something like the main water line in town is going to break. While the utility crew manages to work as quickly as possible to remedy the situation and get the break fixed, properties that are adjacent to the incident are sometimes likely to be impacted the worst by the excess water. This water continues unabated until the appropriate valves can be shut down to kill water coming to the broken pipe, which depending on the response of the local crew and the conditions of the valves, can sometimes be a significant amount of time. Such was the case with the substantial water damages that a Pittsfield school recently experienced when they found themselves, unfortunately, positioned in line with the flow of water from the main line break.
The lower level of the school became affected the most, which fortunately this area was primarily linoleum and concrete. While this construction would limit the possibility of mold growth, it did not aid in making water restoration efforts any more manageable. The school board knew that they would need professional assistance that would go above and beyond the capabilities of their limited custodial staff, and that is when they reached out to SERVPRO.
The SERVPRO of Concord team got to work quickly on the areas that were most in need of their attention, aiding present workers with water extraction from the lowest levels. A lot of their focus went to the lecture hall of the school that had just received new carpeting shortly before the incident had occurred, as the school staff had not been adequately prepared for water restoration to carpeted areas. Within a short time, the water was dried up, and the damage got successfully restored, allowing students to return to school with very few days off.
