Retail store basement flood
One night over the summer, we received a call that a retail bookstore had discovered a flood in their basement. We dispatched our team and headed down to their location.
Upon arrival, we discovered that it was in fact two retail stores. The customer who called has the bookstore and the neighboring unit was a clothing retail store, luckily owned by the same person.
We extracted the water, took care of the inventory in both stores, and set our equipment up to dry the two units. After a few days both of the stores were dry and happy to be open.
Because the owner caught the flood fairly quickly, none of the inventory was damaged, and they were able to operate as normal.
As a business owner, if you know your building is prone to flooding, or backups remember to check the basement regularly. Make sure inventory and valuables are off the ground and out of the line of fire.
