Client: Local High School

Description of Loss:
Fire suppression head was damaged flooding; the Art and Crafts classroom, adjoining storage rooms, and common hallway. The mitigation team secured the scene to prevent unauthorized entry to the work areas, posted warning signs, eliminated slip and fall hazards due to wet VTC flooring and overhead hazards from wet sagging/falling acoustical ceiling tiles. Mitigation team worked closely with the class room staff to secure and preserve contents such as art work, class room projects, crafts and other irreplaceable items. All salvageable contents were cleaned and boxed. Unsalvageable contents were inventoried and disposed of upon approval. Due to suspected category 3 water and amount of silt containment all salvable contents and structure had to be thoroughly cleaned and treated with sanitizer. All water was extracted, flooring machine scrubbed area and sanitizers were applied. Necessary drying equipment was set up and drying progress monitored until completion.

Client: Commercial Building

Location: Shelby Twp.

Loss Type: Wind / Water Damage to commercial building.

Services: Emergency Water Mitigation and Reconstruction

Description of Loss:
Concraft received a call from a Farm Bureau Agent concerned about his client who suffered a severe property damage loss. Wind blew off portion of roof during a bad storm. Water and building debris entered the building causing significant water damage and structural damage. Great sensitivity was given to this site as it contained 30,000 snakes. The structural team at Concraft secured the roof within an hour and the water mitigation followed behind to begin the water mitigation to the interior of the building. Once the building was secured and the structure saved, a Concraft estimator met with the insurance adjuster to decide an agreed scope of repair and cost. The building was restored to its original condition and business was back to normal.
