Hampshire County Senior Center Closing News
Channel 22 News at 10 reports on the condition of the Ludlow Senior Center in Hampshire County after an exterior pipe burst on the second floor which resulted in flooding of the office, lounge, and hallways on the first floor.
The extensive flood damage left the Hampshire County Senior Center without phones and electricity. While first-responders managed to save some of the furniture, the facilities carpeting, and sheetrock did not survive the ordeal.
After a brief montage of digital photos depicting the original condition of the offices, lounge, and hallway, you get a glimpse of SERVPRO technicians taking up carpet padding while other team members use extractors and setup air-moving equipment to remove water throughout the facility.
Jodi Zepki, the Executive Director of Ludlow Senior Center, explains that there was a broken pipe upstairs that allowed water to flow into the facility throughout the night. She came in that morning to over 2-inches of water on the floor which left behind quite a mess. As we can see, water took a toll on various correspondence, supplies, and additional company assets.
SERVPRO responded to the center’s request for help immediately, working feverishly to provide quick, efficient services to get the facility back up and running as soon as possible. As reported, the center suspended normal operations Friday to Monday, allowing our technicians the opportunity to rectify the situation, returning Monday with a new report from Channel 22 News Anchor, Barry Kriger.
Barry reports that while the lounge, fitness room, and other areas remain closed for additional repairs, the offices themselves reopen at 8 am Tuesday. As you can see, the hallway which was under two inches of water just three days ago is now water free. However, SERVPRO technicians still need to perform sheetrock repairs and put the finishing touches on some areas affected by the flood.
