Commercial Water Damage at LL Bean

Water Damage Commercial Water Damage at LL Bean Our team on site at LL Bean for water remediation.

Imagine this, you’re a retailer, it is December 20th, 5 days to Christmas and you have a pipe break which released a large amount of water through your building, what do you do? You call SERVPRO of course!  This scenario is the exact nightmare our customer at LL Bean experienced.  During peak holiday shopping hours LL Bean at Evergreen Walk in South Windsor, CT had to close their store and remediate the water damage! LL Bean called us here at SERVPRO of The Windsors and we immediately responded.  We overstaffed the job to accelerate the remediation process!  Our crew worked vigorously to get the store back up and running as quickly as possible.  The likable staff at LL Bean was pleasantly surprised at how quickly after the loss we were able to get the doors back open!  We understand how crucial it is for businesses to continue operating even after devastation and are proud to work with fellow businesses to achieve this goal!
