Addressing Hurricane Florence Storm Damage to the NC Visitors Naval Center
North Carolina has a unique attraction called the USS North Carolina, a World War II battleship that sits on the Cape Fear River. Unfortunately, "Hurricane Florence damaged the USS North Carolina Visitor Center" when it hit the area, severely impacting the 13,000 square foot building. The storm caused intense flood damage inside and was additionally responsible for destroying "over 60% of the roof." In response to the storm, SERVPRO was "called to help."
In order to address the flood, SERVPRO of Boynton Beach swiftly assembled a team that could get "dehumidification equipment onsite to assess and limit damages." Our technicians are proud to be apart of the Large Loss and Natural Disaster Recovery teams. We aim to promptly send help when we are called upon after natural disasters, such as Hurricane Florence.
To begin the remediation process, our crew packed machines such as wet/dry vacuums and portable submersible pumps to ensure that the floodwaters could be removed from inside the building. Additionally, we brought tools such as dehumidifiers, air movers, and axial fans to make sure that we could reduce the moisture levels inside by an acceptable degree once the water was removed.
Due to flooded roads, SERVPRO went the extra mile to assist our clients and "hired a charter boat" so our crew could "get to the job site faster." Renting the boat allowed us to get our team there swiftly so that we could inspect the damage and create a plan on removing it in the least amount of time possible. Efficiently working is always among our top priorities, and it is our pleasure to work towards building a reputation in our local community that our clients can trust in.
Our team of IICRC-certified technicians expertly handled removing the water, demolishing unsalvageable materials, and returning the moisture levels of the center to an acceptable degree. Due to "our fast response, [SERVPRO] saved tens of thousands of dollars and damages." However, it was not just about reducing money spent on repairs for us. SERVPRO was proud to be a part of helping "the battleship to quickly recover."
