Disaster cleanup after car slams into storefront
A small business in Worcester County suffered damage after a vehicle lost control and hit the building, smashing its front windows and inventory of wine bottles. We've all seen the news reports; an elderly driver accidentally hits the gas instead of the brake or a new driver puts the car in drive instead of the reverse. Unfortunately, these situations happen more often than you'd think. On average, 60 storefront crashes are reported a day, 22% caused by operator error. But what happens when the news crews leave and the car has been towed away? That's where we come in. ServiceMaster Dynamic Cleaning is trained in specialty cleanups assisting property owners after vandalism, severe storms, and other catastrophes.
Luckily, no one was hurt but the liquor store was littered with broken glass, wine, and building debris. Our team was called in to help with the disaster cleanup and we were onsite within the hour. Technicians quickly got to work providing emergency cleaning services. A significant amount of broken bottles created a small river of wine on the floor and required extraction with our equipment. Once the wine was pumped out, glass and debris cleanup could begin. The team sorted and inventoried the damaged inventory for insurance documentation. We cleaned and sanitized all salvageable goods. Our crews completed the job in just a few hours so the store could begin to get back to business with very little downtime.
