We recently faced a challenging water damage restoration project at The Horseshoe Hotel & Casino in Westlake, LA. Our team was called in to address extensive water damage caused by a burst pipe. This case study outlines the steps we took for water damage restoration in Westlake, LA, to restore the property to its pre-damage condition.
The Challenge: Employee’s Area Out of Commission
The burst pipe on the floor above the employees’ area led to significant water leakage, affecting various rooms including offices, the storage area, employee entrance, meeting room, hallway, locker room, bathrooms, and the break room. Many materials were damaged including the drop ceiling, carpet, drywall, baseboards, flooring, and tiles.
The greatest challenge was the downtime of the employee area. Essential for staff operations, its unavailability significantly disrupted daily activities, affecting everything from staff preparations to administrative functions. Recognizing the urgency, our team at Apex Disaster Specialists Louisiana, LLC prioritized a quick and efficient restoration process. Our goal was to minimize operational disruptions and quickly restore a functional workspace.
Our Approach: Fast and Complete Water Damage Mitigation
Step 1: Initial Assessment and Planning
As soon as we got there, our first priority was to assess the extent of the damage. We used moisture detectors to identify the water-damaged areas and materials. This initial evaluation helped us plan the restoration process more effectively.
Step 2: Water Extraction
Using high-powered water extractors, we quickly removed any standing water from the rooms. Speed was important to prevent further damage or mold growth.
Step 3: Removal of Damaged Materials
We carefully removed damaged materials such as trim, flooring, carpet, and ceiling tiles. This step was necessary to prevent the spread of moisture and potential mold growth in undamaged areas.
Step 4: Drying and Dehumidifying
After removing the water and damaged materials, we used industrial air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out all damaged rooms. This process was monitored closely to ensure complete drying.
Step 5: Moisture Detection and Verification
To guarantee that the area was thoroughly dry, we used moisture detectors. This ensured that no hidden moisture remained that could cause problems later.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
All affected areas were cleaned and sanitized. We used antimicrobial spray to prevent mold growth and carpet steam cleaners to refresh and sanitize the carpets.
