Yesterday morning we get a call around 9:00 that a furniture store warehouse had a water main break. They said 1/2 of their 100,000 sq/ft was flooded and needed immediate help.

Fortunately it was all concrete so as we extracted and set equipment those areas could be used, somewhat. Their marketing department took advantage of the situation and had a broken pipe sale. :eekk:

They ran a Facebook ad boosting it for $100.00. The turnout was pretty incredible, people just kept coming and buying furniture off the lot and off the floor.

We had 5 trucks extracting from 9:30 am to 8:30 pm it look like the ending scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark. The pallet rack aisles were 300 foot in length. With most trucks ran 3-400 feet runs. The Everest ran even longer hose to acces the middle aisles. It had (14) sections of 50 foot hose. Yep, 700 feet out and she still had great suction. Simply amazing machine! :cool: I'm glad we got the 650, while I wasn't sure we needed, it has come in handy.

Most of the items in the warehouse show room only had the legs wet. However they lost hundreds of items in the storage area ruined by water. Mattresses and divans just soaked. Most had wood slats propping them up off the ground but the water at one time was above the slats and soaked into the items.

I'm just guessing 12-15 because it was just concrete. If it were finished office space 50-75 due to carpet, dry wall built in's affected.
