A Broken Pipe Can Cause Water Damage in Your Pensacola Shoe Store
Drying Out Your Water Damaged Business is Key to a Successful SERVPRO Remediation
Having a store inside of an old building can have its consequences, such as water damage from a broken pipe. An old and rusted pipe can crack and then eventually break open from the strain of the metal degrading over time. Unfortunately, when plumbing pipes burst, they spill hundreds of gallons of water in just seconds.
When it comes to the commercial water damage in Pensacola that is quickly invading your shoe store, turning off the water-valve as soon as possible can help immensely. Making sure it can no longer add to the mess that needs to be cleaned up is the first step. Additionally, it is essential that you not only call for a plumber as quickly as you can but also for a professional remediation technician as well. The sooner you get the water out of your building, the sooner you can reopen your business.
At SERVPRO, we prioritize time-management. We understand that the sooner our technicians get to your business, the quicker and smoother the remediation process can be. When we receive your call, we gather what equipment is needed for the job and quickly travel to your business. SERVPRO always tries to minimize foot traffic loss for your business.
The first thing we can do when we arrive at your store is to box up the shoes around the damage so that we can thoroughly dry the area. Any shoes that have been damaged by the water can be listed by our technicians to use for an insurance claim. To handle any standing water in your store, SERVPRO can use advanced tools such as extractors and wet/dry vacuums to clean it up. These tools allow us to remove the stagnant water from the area at a quicker rate. Additionally, extractors have a heating element attached to them that help dry out any heavy upholstery, carpets, and drapes.
Our IICRC-certified techs can employ the use of ventilation fans and desiccant dehumidifiers to encourage moisture inside of the structure of your store to evaporate. As our final touch, SERVPRO can thoroughly clean up any stray bits of metal piping from your store and then return the boxed shoes to their rightful locations.
