#1 Rated Water Damage Restoration Company in Salt Lake City
Contact Us Today To Get Your Home Dry and Repaired
Disaster Doctors was called to the scene of a hospice in Millcreek, a suburb of Salt Lake City, in December of 2018. The owners showed up to a very unpleasant sight, flooding in one of the wings of the hospice. Luckily, the hospice was vacant at the time, so there was no evacuation, or injuries from this. The owners called their janitorial service to alert them of the problem. Knowing that water damage was out of their area of expertise, they called Disaster Doctors. Disaster Doctors works with several janitorial services, plumbers, and other trades, taking care of their water damage cleanup and restoration for them. Our expert work, and fast turnaround time make Disaster Doctors an easy choice for a tradesman to trust with their clients property. Disaster Doctors was at the property about an hour after the call came in, with a trailer full of fans and dehumidifiers, ready to begin the water mitigation process.
After getting the water turned off, and inspecting the property, our lead technician, Cody Stanger, found the source of the flooding. The smallest part, a $5 plastic piece attached to an in-line water heater, cracked, and that leak caused the massive amount of damage seen below. A simple replacement of the part will prevent any further water damage, but it’s circumstances like this that need to remind all of us to check those fixtures from time to time. A quick replacement can save you thousands! After the flood cause was identified, and further water damage prevented, it was time to get the hospice dried out. In a commercial building, that can be quite the daunting task, as the drywall is thicker than in a residential property. Our technicians had to remove drywall from several rooms, and use dozens of fans and dehumidifiers. The entire wing was dry within a few days, ready for repairs to begin.
