Flood Damage Can Cause Significant Problems For Your Goulding Business
Commercial Flood Damage Restoration Process
An office building can become uninhabitable in just a few hours due to activated sprinklers or broken pipes. Here in Florida, the threat of flooding due to weather is a constant source of concern.
No matter the source, flood damage can quickly ruin a Goulding business. The keys to preventing this or at least reduce the effects are a rapid response and removing the water. SERVPRO has the equipment and personnel to assist you in restoring your business. We maintain a 24-hour response team to identify the threats and schedule which tasks need to be accomplished first. As our cleanup crews move in to remove standing water and relocate furniture that can be moved, our inspectors will examine your facility to determine the work schedule and decide which tasks need to be accomplished first.
If we arrive and remove water quickly enough, then the damage to carpets, office furniture, walls, and trim will be minimal. If the amount of water is excessive or if removal takes too long, then the extent of damage grows quickly. Carpets and pads can become soaked and ruined overnight. Extended exposure (due to closed roads or if flood waters are slow to retreat) can cause drywall to crumble and rot. Mold can begin to grow and spread at this time. If it continues, even the foundation can become compromised. This is why we maintain an extensive inventory of commercial pumps and generators to ensure uninterrupted service. We even have generator trucks that can provide our own power to continue the restoration process.
With the excess water removed, our technicians set up fans and dehumidifiers. These machines are designed to draw moisture from your facility and its contents to include carpets. As this happens, our inspectors monitor the process with state of the art air moisture meters. Once the levels are back to normal, we'll return any furniture that isn't damaged.
Our final action is to walk through your offices with you to make certain you are satisfied. As a locally owned franchise, this isn't just a job for us; it's helping a fellow businessperson reopen their doors. Call us today at (850) 469-1160 to get started. SERVPRO of West Pensacola stands ready to go.
