When you manage a business, you will have some contacts at the ready for whenever emergencies come up. Some contacts help with electrical issues, while others deal with plumbing concerns. One contact that you might not have thought about is a concrete cutter. You might not think this service is helpful in most situations, but there are actually quite a number of emergencies in which a concrete cutter would be handy. Here are emergencies that can be handled with the help of a concrete cutter.
A Concrete Cutter Can Handle Leaks in Buried Sewer Lines
Any kind of plumbing problem is already going to be a nuisance to repair, but have you considered what can happen when sewer laterals stop working underneath sidewalks and other areas where people walk? It’s very difficult to reach sewer lines when they’re trapped underneath a lot of concrete. Only a professional concrete cutter will have the tools needed to complete the job with quickness and ease. They will also exercise caution and be sure not to harm pieces of concrete in the surrounding area.
A Concrete Cutter Can Address Collapsed Wall Sections
There are plenty of commercial areas that make use of concrete retaining walls and concrete seawalls. These will often last for many years when given proper care, but weather will eventually start wearing them down. Sometimes, pieces of wall will collapse abruptly and without any prior notice.
This problem requires swift action to resolve. With the help of a concrete cutter, you can get all of the damaged concrete chunks broken up and removed from the premises. Once the damaged parts of your wall get removed, you can get professional help repairing all of the concrete that’s left.
Emergencies on the Job Site
While emergencies can happen around finished structures, you also have to worry about accidents that can occur when concrete structures are being expanded and during new construction projects. When accidents happen, quick action is needed to ensure the project doesn’t fall more behind than it already is.
This is when professional help is needed. If a concrete structure is not entirely completed, it might not be stable, and having expert help is important so that you can get parts of concrete structures demolished without causing anything else to collapse.
