Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

A Calamitous Scenario

8/2/2023 (Permalink)

If your business has experienced a water loss, it can be devastating to handle. Whether it was caused by a burst pipe, leak, or flooding it can lead to significant property damage, financial losses, and business interruption. When faced with such a disaster, a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO is the first line of defense to mitigate and restore your property to normalcy.

Once our office has been called, a crew chief will be dispatched to your location. This will mark the beginning of the initial assessment, which will go over the extent of the damage. We will use advanced equipment to help pinpoint what areas are affected and need attention. Moisture meter detection tools are used to identify the areas that are affected, including hidden spaces behind walls and under floors. The information that is collected will help when it comes to developing a customized restoration plan tailored to the specific needs of the property.

The first step that our mitigation team will take is to remove the standing water from the affected areas promptly. Using powerful submersible pumps and other additional extraction tools, the team will work swiftly to extract the water from carpets, flooring, and other porous materials. This will help prevent further damage to the property and will inhibit the growth of mold and mildew, which will exacerbate the situation if left unmitigated.

After the water has been extracted, industrial-grade drying equipment will be strategically placed throughout the property. Air movers and dehumidifiers are used to eliminate residual moisture from surfaces and the air. This step is vital to prevent structural damage, mold growth, and the development of musty odors. As the property dries out, the restoration team focuses on salvaging and cleaning up the damaged items. Materials like furniture, electronics, and documents are carefully inspected and restored to their preloss condition if they are determined to be salvageable. Any unsalvageable will be documented and disposed of.

Before wrapping up the mitigation process, the team will perform a final inspection to confirm that all the tasks have been completed properly and carried out successfully. The client is allowed to review the property and provide feedback to ensure their satisfaction with the work that has been performed on the property. A commercial water loss is undoubtedly a challenging situation for any business, but with the help and support provided by SERVPRO, the road to recovery becomes smoother. Our expertise, and advanced equipment, combined with a systematic approach will help minimize the downtime for the business.
