Proven Tips to Combat Commercial Water Damage in Phoenix
Finding Solutions for Phoenix Self-Storage Water Damage Troubles
Self-storage facilities in Phoenix with water damage can pose a unique challenge to SERVPRO technicians. With the entire property so compartmentalized and heavy in walls, doors, and insulation, we often have to deal with the same square footage of other commercial establishments without any of the open space and room to work that we usually get. Depending on the type and extent of damage, we may even need to bring in some of our more unique and unconventional drying and restoration techniques to reverse damages.
Often, the first surfaces and objects to sustain heavy water damage in a Phoenix self-storage facility tend to be the belongings and valuables stored inside rooms and lockers throughout the facility. From breakable ceramics and glassware to easily-destroyed fabrics and delicate mechanical and electrical parts, most of the items located across the premises are likely to be highly vulnerable to uncontrolled water damage.
Our strategy is to restore rather than replace everything we can to reduce hassle and control replacement and insurance costs. However, damage can extend beyond the contents of containers to the rooms and lockers themselves, as well. Insulation, HVAC systems, and flooring materials are all common sites of water damage found throughout the structure itself, and the specific steps we need to take to control damage to them can vary depending on their specifications and the building layout.
For larger storage units, we can treat the area as we would a small room, removing and separating contents to facilitate faster drying while we use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out the room itself. However, for smaller containers, we may need to alter our strategies to keep the mitigation process from taking too long. If necessary, we can call in help from other nearby SERVPRO franchises to supply additional drying equipment to make sure the entire facility is dried out in a timely fashion.
