Signs of Water & Fire Damage in Your School

Restoration Services for Schools

If your school has experienced a recent fire or flood, look for the following signs:

  • Unpleasant Smell – Water intrusion can leave behind a musty smell long after the water subsides. Likewise, smoke & soot leave behind a different telltale odor. Both smells, stemming from microbial growth in water or tiny particles of carbon in the air, can be difficult to eliminate. Both can be distracting to students and educators.
  • Destruction of Educational Materials – Books, computers, projectors, and other educational materials are vulnerable to water and smoke damages. They can be rendered useless within minutes of submersion in floodwater or exposure to a fire.
  • Destruction of Furniture – Fire consumes many types of furniture. Water can make wooden desks, tables, and chairs flake, blister, or become brittle, diminishing their lifespans and triggers sizable replacement costs.
  • Food & Water Contamination – Floodwater carries millions of harmful microbes that can make students sick. If floodwater surfaces in pipes that supply water fountains or water for the cafeteria, you could have a severe health hazard. Smoke and soot will ruin many food products in the cafeteria.
  • Mould Infestation – Mold is a common but potentially health-threatening fungus that grows under damp conditions. In the aftermath of a flood, or after water is used to douse a fire, it's common to spot mold infestation on floors and walls. Skin contact and mold spores' inhalation can cause medical issues ranging from respiratory problems, rashes, or even cancer.
  • Fire & Electric Hazards – Electrocution is possible when floodwater makes contact with power outlets and exposed wiring. Water can also short-circuit electrical infrastructure and start a fire.

What to Do if Your School Floods?

When your school building floods, the top priorities should be student safety and minimizing water damage. Disaster clean-up is a multi-step process. Here are some tips that can make a difference during a disaster:

  • Alert the School Maintenance Staff – Members of your school's maintenance staff are trained to handle emergencies involving school facilities and infrastructure. Alerting them ASAP is essential for applying proper safety measures that can help contain the damage.
  • Evacuate Students in Affected Areas – If classes are going on when flooding occurs, calmly escort students to a safer place. Make sure everyone is accounted for and have them walk toward safety.
  • Turn off the Power – Shutting down the power eliminates the chances of electrocution and electrical fires.
  • Identify the Water Source – Try to identify the source of the water infiltration. Common causes include a burst pipe, an overflowing toilet, or a leaking water heater. Share the source of the leak with the maintenance staff.
  • Call PENCO Restoration – When your building floods, our emergency crews are standing by 24/7 to extract the water. The rest of the process calls for dehumidification, disinfection, repair, and restoration. We also offer content restoration for books, furniture, appliances, important documents, and more.
