Office Flood

Hey everyone,

There has been a flood in our Chatham office and the phone system is currently offline. We are working hard to get this resolved as quickly as possible.

Thanks.

Great idea....improves employee productivity, efficiency around the office, and promotes good health. I say open the doors and let 'er freeze.

Marc i hope you guys get some commercial de-humidifiers going ASAP. that carpet (even though its commercial grade) and the drywall will hold moisture and eventually begin to mould.

best of luck guys. that looks crappy.

I remember being told at a fire training thing in a previous office that water in sprinkler pipes is flushed once every couple of years, so it would be gross if and when they were triggered.

Best of luck TSI!

I agree, however being a commercial property manager, I've seen my fair share of sprinkler lines freezing and bursting and trust me, the water is not clean for the first bit. Black soot/sludge usually comes out of the lines for the first minute or so at around 90PSI and when that stuff comes out it sure does stink.

Oh god,,, I would hate to even think about cleaning that up.

Hope everything will be back to normal quick (we all know it'll take some time but...) , especially in this freezing weather.

They only flush up to the flow switch inspectors test valve. Everything downstream of that is black oily water that is only flushed when a sprinkler head activates.

Y'all cleaning it yourselves or you have a company doing it? When we had our office flood ServPro came in. Those guys rocked. It was all done in 3 days; smell was out in 5 (sewer line broke on a second floor).
