Commercial Water Removal in Taylorsville
SERVPRO Technicians can Get Your Shop Opened Quickly After Damage
In a residential neighborhood, standing water usually means the loss of some personal property, time in a motel for the residents and a limited amount of restoration costs. It does not usually affect the person's ability to go to work or draw a paycheck. This limitation is not the case when disaster strikes a business.
Quick commercial water removal for a Taylorsville structure such as an auto repair shop can mean the difference between reopening for business and closing the doors permanently. SERVPRO has decades of experience in helping our communities and local businesses get back to work and back to normal as well.
Since most of the water in commercial flooding is from damaged plumbing or faulty sprinklers, the water involved is usually clean. That means the water is free of sewage and other contaminants which make removal and clean-up more difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. It also means that our technicians use a checklist of actions that is designed to help you reopen your doors and begin servicing customers as soon as we can safely do so.
First, we secure your facility. This step includes not just protecting your structure from further water damage or trespassing, but also looking for electrical hazards, deteriorating floors and sub-floors as well as falling ceilings if the source of the water leak was from a sprinkler, an upper floor, or the roof.
Next, technicians remove standing water. They use industrial pumps along with generators if the power is still out. Once the water is gone, the response team examines crawl spaces, under floors and behind walls to ensure we have not missed anything.
If everything checks OK, the next step is to lower the humidity levels of the building itself and the surrounding air. Technicians determine levels with moisture meters and then set up a combination of air movers and exhaust fans at exit points in the shop. These commercial machines rapidly exchange damp air for drier air from the outside, and we maintain a scaled inventory of them for use in small areas like storage rooms to larger, multi-bay areas like the shop floor. For smaller rooms with carpeting (e.g. a manager's office), we may also set up a dehumidifier to speed up the process to prevent pulling up and replacing the carpet or the pad underneath.
Reopening the doors after a disaster is a time-consuming and often expensive, process. SERVPRO of Alexander & Caldwell Counties is here to make sure it is not a frustrating one as well. Our technicians walk through every step with you and even assist with your insurance company if it is helpful to do so. Call us at today at (828) 396-1070 to get started.
