So, how did we approach it?
- FRA had to dispense with the original drying methods and needed to use more suitable equipment due to the extreme weather conditions.
- Using advanced heat drying techniques, we could significantly reduce the length of time spent on the claim.
Cause of the Claim
As advised by the electrician on-site who has provided temporary power, a leak from a pipe to the dishwasher on the top floor of a 3-level ski lodge, has leaked for approximately 7 days prior to being discovered.
However, upon closer inspection it has been identified that the tap under the kitchen sink has a 2-cm wide crack in the body. This has caused a large escape of water to the triple level property to be affected. Water inundation is throughout the entire property on all levels, and all the ceilings, walls and subfloors have been saturated and are reading 100% wet.
A plumber was appointed to rectify the tap as a matter of urgency to repair the tap as the water has been isolated at the mains, and should it be accidentally turned back on, then this will cause the building to be flooded again.
