From High Rises to Barns
Most of the time when we get called out to a commercial loss, we are expecting to have to deal with a business which normally means we would be dealing with an office filled with copy machines and desks and computers. Sometimes though, you go to a commercial loss in Santa Ynez and it turns out to be a horse farm. We still had drywall and flooring that needed to be dried but the contents that we were manipulating were more like horse shoes and saddles. There were horses there in their stables and they were very curious about what was going on and acted as our supervisors for the day. We had ranch hands helping to move things around so we were able to get the full farm experience.
The broken supply line underneath the vanity took no pity on the farmer and his family. When it was time to burst, it had no qualms about doing so. Fortunately, SERVPRO of Santa Barbara responds to any disaster, from the big city to the rural farms.
