We Have Our Own Cleaning Crew, Can We Have Them Begin Cleanup?

There are some instances where untrained personnel can make water damage worse when trying to address flooding. Having trained technicians that follow best practices for mitigation and restoration is best. There are a few things to keep in mind when you are faced with flooding and water loss in your commercial space:

•    Floodwater, of any kind, should never be left to linger. Water must be removed from the building promptly to help lessen the damage, the cost, and to get it restored to preloss condition.
•    If the water gathers contaminants along the way, the need for careful measures is enhanced. Try to set up a barrier to cordon off the loss zone until the SERVPRO team can arrive to start with the loss and flooding assessment.
•    Your staff should always have emergency protocols in place that help you handle water damage situations in the future. High levels of water create devastating and costly damages, so ensuring that your cleaning team and employees know how to act goes a long way until the skilled technicians arrive to get to work.

What Type of Damages Am I Looking At?

For a flooding event in your Closter office space, there can be several issues to worry about. All of the potential damage depends on the amount of time and the level of exposure to water. Some of the effects of the flood loss may include:

•    Breakdown of structural materials: Lingering water causes wood to swell, warp, and crack. For any drywall throughout your office saturated with water, it can start to warp and crumble. Painted surfaces can begin to bubble and peel, or you might notice discoloration and musty odors on the walls or flooring. Professional drying must take place soon before the materials are no longer salvageable, especially if you have carpeted areas of the office.
•    Potential onset of mildew and mold: Organic or porous materials within the building like subfloors or drywall can take on water. When this happens, it creates an environment that is the perfect platform for microbial growth. Mold and mildew thrive on organic materials whenever the temperature and relative humidity are just right.

Upon our arrival at your commercial location, SERVPRO technicians use commercial-grade extraction and drying techniques mixed with OSHA-approved agents and biocides that help inhibit mold and mildew growth.

How Does the Flooding Cleanup Work?

Our crew knows that you have a plethora of valuable information, office equipment, and furnishings within your space that must be used regularly. We know how to inspect every element to determine the best course of action during our restoration process:

•    Thorough inspection, to include measuring moisture on surfaces using moisture sensors and moisture meters
•    Water extraction using wet/dry vacuums, truck-mounted extractors, suction pads, and more
•    Expedient drying to include strategic placement of fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers
•    Odor control and sanitation management using specialized anti-microbial solutions and cleaning agents
•    Restoration tasks necessary to wrap up the project, including structural repairs and finishing details
