It was in April 2021 that the water damage occurred on a ferry in Sweden when a water pipe broke on passenger deck. Anticimex Halmstad was assigned to do the water damage restoration.
There was a layered construction between the engine room and passenger cabins. It was a surface of 200 m2 with 70 mm thick isolation. It was important that the ferry could be in service during the entire process, so they had to do the restoration section by section. Anticimex used the methods called pressure- and suction drying.
“The ferry staff was very knowledgeable and had done great preparatory work”, says Anticimex’ drying technician Peter Jönsson (left).”
“They had started to empty water by drilling holes in the ceiling of the engine room and vacuum pumped out the water. They had also teared up the carpets in the cabins.”
