Flooded Tennis Court
At SERVPRO of Palm Springs not every water damage loss we encounter is inside. Some of the situations we encounter are areas affected by sprinkler systems, outdoor spigots or broken water mains. While these damages do not affect a structure they still have to be dried out quickly. If the water is not removed it can affect he longevity of the affected areas, if concrete is over saturated the water can become bound at a molecular level. When this occurs the area can undergo spalling in the rebar. Spalling is when the rebar starts to rust and then degrades to the point where it can no longer support the surrounding concrete and it starts to crack and is no longer reliable.
In this picture we see a tennis court that has been flooded by a sprinkler valve that has failed. This will takes push brooms and a sump pump with some hosing and a drainage point to resolve.
