How to Bounce Back After Water Damage to Your Office Building
The pipe burst under the sink in the bathroom of your office building or under the breakroom sink, and now you’re facing an overwhelming task for cleanup and repairs. The floors and walls are wet, and it appears that you may have to disrupt daily operations for a while so that professionals can restore the office. Nowadays, even a few days of downtime can have a big impact on businesses. Here’s what you need to do so your business can bounce back quickly.
Right after the flood occurs, act fast
It’s a good idea to call us right away after you experience water damage because excess water can cause damages to the structure of the building as well as to floor tiles and walls. In addition, if you allow water to stand inside the building for more than 48 hours, the mold may start to grow, which can cause health effects. While your knee-jerk reaction is to grab a mop and try to clean it up yourself, it’s best to leave it to the professionals who know how to clean up water damage, so no further damage occurs.
The pros at SERVPRO
Our commercial water damage SERVPRO technicians in Phoenix are highly trained and understand the importance of mitigating moisture quickly to stop further damage from occurring. The team can use extractors, vacuums, or pumps to remove water from the structure. After the migration phase, the team dries the area. Our crew may employ air movers or axial fans to dry the office. We may also utilize dehumidifiers to reduce humidity and increase evaporation. In addition, we’ll utilize dehumidifiers to pull in moisture and return dry, warm air inside the office environment. This step helps increase the drying phase and keep additional damage from unaddressed moisture from causing more damage.
Fighting secondary damage
We work fast to dry the area to prevent mold growth and to reduce the chances of other secondary issues such as wood rot from occurring. The crew can also pack out materials and contents inside the office. We itemize, categorize, and store each item in a dry and safe area on or off-site until the restoration process is complete. We know that it is essential to keep your office functioning on a daily basis, which is why you can expect our techs to work quickly and to strive to get the job done right. We also ensure no moisture is present to fight against the possibility of lingering odors.
