Flooding

Flooding or leaking in offices occurs rarely, yet it can happen in the event of severe weather, sprinkler system leaks, or drain backups. If this unlikely situation develops, please:

  1. Call the Management Office immediately at 703-226-2750. We will determine the cause of the flooding and immediately take steps to lessen or stop the inflow of water. If the water is coming in from the roof or exterior of the building, we may have to wait until the rain stops before the engineering staff or an outside contractor can attempt to repair the leak.
  2. Prevent people from walking through any standing water. They may slip and fall.
  3. The building’s in-house team will be using its equipment to clean and disinfect the areas. In the unlikely event the problem is severe, an outside cleaning service will be called for assistance.

File a claim with your insurance company, if necessary.
