The experience of Tanto UK’s Weston Super Mare based factory, is testimony to the importance of calling in the experts immediately, following an escape of water or flood incident.
In a nightmare scenario for the factory owners and occupants, the factory, experienced a burst water pipe over the holiday period. Ninety percent of the 6000 sq.ft unit was flooded by the water from the burst pipe including the factory floor, the warehouse and the offices.
However, disaster was averted thanks to the quick actions of expert technicians from Rainbow International and the clean-up operation was completed without any factory downtime at all – a remarkable feat over the holiday period.
The local Rainbow branch received this instruction, and were made aware that the factory was due to begin production again following the forthcoming bank holiday, so quick actions were needed to ensure this was achievable.
The Rainbow team responded within 24 hours and immediately on arrival, wasted no time in setting about extracting the water from the affected areas, uplifting saturated carpets and installing stabilisation equipment to ensure the factory could open the following day.
Their prompt action was the key to averting disaster because it avoided any secondary damage that could be caused by leaving the standing water too long. It meant the clean-up operation could be completed without any factory downtime at all – a remarkable feat considering the size and nature of the incident.
Thanks to the quick actions of Rainbow’s technicians, the area was able to be dried and restored to pre-incident condition in time for the company’s employees to return to work after the bank holiday
Robert Dunleavey, Managing Director of Tanto Labels quoted: “We received a fantastic service from your company, and as a result we didn’t have a single hour of downtime.”
