"We can help" We have the experience, specialized training, and state-of-the-art equipment to restore your property to pre-damage condition.

What is the right response when you need Commercial Water Removal Services in your Closter Business?

To minimize loss of revenue and property damages, contact water removal professionals, SERVPRO. Commercial water losses can be beyond the scope of your control and be the result of a broader flood, storm, or internal plumbing issue. The sudden arrival of massive volumes of water in your property can force a temporary closure of a business. Your response is paramount to how well your business responds to this crisis, and you may find that you do not have the resources or equipment to manage the transition back to regular trade. SERVPRO can help you get back on track faster and with a minimum loss of revenue.  

How does commercial water removal differ from other water-related scenarios?

Water loss affects businesses at some point or another. However, the way that your business is affected can change considerably. Many water-loss scenarios are the result of moisture buildup over time. These can be because of low vapor barriers, malfunctioning sump pumps, or an inability for the structure to adapt well enough to atmospheric pressure changes. Typically commercial water removal is a requirement when the damages are sudden and involve large bodies of water rather than degradation over time. 

What equipment and services should you consider when large amounts of standing water are in your commercial property? 

Typically, the leading equipment that SERVPRO use for commercial water removal is pumping equipment, extraction devices as well as dehumidification. Each type of equipment needs adapting to the specific needs of the structure. Some waters may contain solid waste, in which case our technicians need to use self-priming trash pumps, which allows solid waste up to 5/8" to pass through. If standing water is confined to subterranean levels, we may need to use high pressure pumps to transit water uphill and out of the property. 

Extraction equipment is less effective overall than pumping equipment. However, once standing water levels reduce, they can be more efficient at removing residual moisture. Generally, SERVPRO technicians can decide between weighted or light extraction tools. A carpeted business property may require weighted extraction to squeeze the fibers of the carpet and remove moisture. Harder surfaces such as tiling found in retail outlets may benefit from lighter extraction tools. 

What type of harm can standing water cause to my business?

Water in a structure that is not designed to sustain it can be catastrophic. Several ways standing water levels can affect your property in both the immediate moment and over a more extended period. SERVPRO distinguishes water loss issues between primary emergencies and secondary damages. 

The impact of Water weight on a structure 

Large bodies of standing water create a significant downward pressure onto the structure. At upper levels, large amounts of water can result in ceiling collapses or damage jointing at the base level of walls. Often interior structures are made using wood frames that can absorb moisture and expand. In severe cases, standing water levels can cause permanent harm to a building's structure. SERVPRO can reduce standing water levels quickly using a combination of pumping and extraction equipment, thereby minimizing the immediate concerns of standing water. 

How to Limit Water migration

Water migration can be a defining factor when limiting the losses. The guiding principle is that water always moves from wet to dry. The longer you leave large amounts of standing water with your business, the more likely it is for that water to spread and affect other areas. SERVPRO technicians can use a combination of thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters as well as moisture sensors to understand how far water migration is occurring. In some cases, we can provide applied structural drying technicians to restore wall cavities and other areas of the home. 

Water degradation

When any amount of moisture is residing in a property, there is a potential for water degradation. SERVPRO estimates that a clean water emergency can transform into a black water emergency in as little as seventy-two hours. To ensure that we provide the fastest response to our business communities, we use local technicians and can mobilize equipment resources to suit the emergency at hand. Water degradation occurs because microbes have space and time to grow. We act fast to remove large bodies of water then dry the structure effectively to reduce the potential impact of degradation or secondary water damage in your Laconia business.

The primary tools that SERVPRO use to tackle these issues on behalf of commercial property managers are variable depending on the situation. Generally, we use:

- Measuring Equipment

- Gas or Electric Pumps

- Extraction Tools

- Drying equipment

- Anti-microbial treatments

Water loss events can have a seismic effect on your business. You may find that your ability to manage water restoration is only possible by using a team off trained professionals. SERVPRO has extensive experience working with the business community here in Closter. Our training qualifications are awarded by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certifications body, which operates on a national level. You can trust us to perform responsible water loss recovery at your business. 

While we understand that re-opening is of the utmost importance to your bottom line, we are also a responsible restoration service that can handle a project from start to finish. Our process begins with emergency mitigation, which can help you to overcome the immediate harm as well as potentially saving your thousands of dollars worth of costs in restructuring or remodeling. Our attention to detail can help to ensure that secondary harms are kept to a minimum. 

Our services can also help to protect your business against future losses. By using anti-microbial treatments as well as proper drying techniques, SERVPRO can reduce the likelihood of microbial damage, which can build up over time. For any size business, you can reach us twenty-four hours a day to arrange a service. Contact SERVPRO of Northeast Bergen County at (201) 244-0100.
