A local water damage franchise has added a Catastrophic Mobile Warehouse to its fleet to move equipment to industrial sites.
1-800 WATER DAMAGE, which services clients in the Harrisburg, Lancaster and York regions, made the decision to invest in the trailer after reviewing data on both natural and made man disasters that show they have been trending upward over the last several years, said Austin Duchaine, CEO and owner of the franchise.
“We’ve seen the data and realized that in order to best serve our market, having this rolling restoration facility makes sense,” he said.
“Having this CMW significantly increases our ability to move a substantial amount of industrial dehumidifiers, fans and crew members to a region within a few hours; allowing us to greatly reduce whatever water damage may be incurred in a building,” said Shawn Hester, director of operations. “This saves the client significantly on rebuilding costs and ensures that impacted workers can quickly return to a safe, cleansed environment.”
The CMW houses hundreds of commercial fans, dehumidifiers, HEPA air filtration systems and a warehouse of cleaning and anti-microbial cleaning solutions, safety equipment and is one of very few in the region.
“When these catastrophic events occur, companies have to deal with the effects on their employees and confirm their own clients’ needs are continually met,” Austin said. “If our investment in this equipment can reduce the downtime caused by a natural or man-made calamity, allowing our clients to recover faster, then it is all worth it.”
