Every day, we created a detailed schedule and a moisture map of the 55 rooms, so the hotel staff could see exactly what we were working on and how much progress we were making.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
HAR-BRO, Inc., one of the largest privately held emergency services and restoration companies on the West coast, provided significant water mitigation services to a large downtown San Francisco hotel chain during peak travel season.
Two days prior to the Macworld/iWorld 2012 conference in late January, which had most area hotels booked for several weeks, a hot water line broke above a restroom on the hotel’s 11th floor. The hot water affected seven floors and 55 rooms before the hotel engineers were able to shut it off.
Har-Bro was contacted around 9:30 p.m., and had a team of 20 that included project managers, project coordinators, lead superintendent, and technicians, all on site within two hours. They immediately implemented a water remediation plan designed to reduce business interruption for the hotel. Within a few days, the restoration work was completed, allowing the hotel to return to full occupancy.
“Every day, we created a detailed schedule and a moisture map of the 55 rooms, so the hotel staff could see exactly what we were working on and how much progress we were making. They were very happy that we were able to complete the work in just a week and were very satisfied with the organization from start to finish,” said Ryan Rusler, executive account manager for Har-Bro in Northern California.
In particular, the team created a specific timeline for water extraction and returning rooms to “industry dry standard,” which included preparing complete documents for the hotel’s insurance company. Har-Bro also worked closely with the hotel’s general contractor throughout the project.
