    Three extraction trucks 4 hours, 5,000 sq/ft flooded. It was brutal cold 2-5 degrees. One of the trucks froze up at another job site and they had to switch trucks. They were still out when we finished up.

    Just a pain to operate in this weather. I asked them if they would mind waiting 3 months but they felt it needed to be addressed sooner. :winky:

    This is like the one we just did but it was almost 11000 sqft.

    Extraction took forever with 3 units.

    It was all the bottom level. Had it been where you live it would spread across the whole property. The maintenance man said he was there doing driveways and side walks when the notified him of a fire. The sprinkler head had popped in the vestibule.

    It was a lot of water! :biggrin:

    I did one of those a couple years ago. Sprinkler popped in the vestibule of a dis-used grocery store. Flooded almost half the store. The colors coming out from under the shelving was quite interesting.

    I went to snatch a tech to go to another loss and found this. :eekk:

    Had to put out safety cones. Have a note to makes sure they understand that it should be safety First!

    Probably just went in and yelled at somebody, then had to take a break.
