Removing Commercial Water Damage In Somersworth
An effective plan created by SERVPRO for all water damage situations
We usually define the severity of water damage by the source of the water, the affected property, and how much or how large it is. For Somersworth businesses, this means a combination of clean or dirty water, how much entered the business, and how soaked did the property become before the owner contacted a professional restoration service.
Somersworth commercial water damage comes primarily from faulty plumbing or broken appliances. That can be a broken water line leading into the facility, a failing washer, or a blocked toilet that allows contaminated water to remain in the building, causing not just physical damage, but leaves odors that need cleaning as well. SERVPRO restoration crews train to deal with all of the damage that results from water intrusion.
When the water comes from a higher positioned source, the damage is often more extensive. A sprinkler system, even a malfunctioning one, sends out water over the entire structure. Depending on the interior of the building, it can mean additional drying time for brick, glass, and metal walls. If there are interior office spaces, then our specialists need air movers and fans to dry the interior building material before the excess moisture compromises it.
For more industrial facilities, SERVPRO technicians move directly to drying out the building. There is usually only a small amount of standing water, so our teams remove it quickly with extraction wands and then use long-handled squeegees to push it off the floors and out of the building. Our technicians use the same squeegees to pull down moisture off walls and windows. At the same time, other team members set up dehumidifiers to draw moisture out of the air; as much as 25 gallons per day, per device depending on the inside humidity level.
For traditional office settings, technicians have to deal with the interior material like drywall, ceiling tiles, and carpets. Here, our restoration teams use the dehumidifiers to remove moisture and the extraction wands to draw out water trapped inside carpets. They also well air movers and fans to force warm air up walls and over property while drawing out the inside, cooler, damp air.
Removing and remediating the effects of water damage can be an extensive process depending on the facility. Our task at SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester is to help every owner reopen their doors for business as quickly as possible. If you need our services, call us today at (603) 743-4301.
