SERVPRO Has the Ability to Handle Your Commercial Flooding Disaster
Flooding in business is usually the result of damaged plumbing, a sprinkler system going off, or leak in the roof. Eliminating the effects of Commercial water damage in a hotel or office building can take several days or weeks, depending on the amount of water on the floor and what is in it. Let SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County be the company to help.
This situation is bad enough in a private home but spread the damage across ten floors, and 200 rooms and the restoration costs start to look like the purchase price of a mini-mansion! With more than 25 years experience in the restoration business, SERVPRO knows that replacing carpets is one of the most common, and expensive, costs.
In most cases carpets get soaked, but the water levels are not more than an inch. Our technicians can come in with water extraction wands to draw out the bulk of the water and remove it from the building for each floor of the building.
With water removal accomplished, we begin the process of drying the carpet. This procedure is needed to prevent the fibers from rotting, mold from forming, and to stop deterioration. We use a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers to direct warm, dry air across the carpet surface and force the damp air out of the rooms, down the hallways and into the stairwells where we can vent it outside. Our technicians may prop open the fire exits to assist venting the air if weather permits.
Since commercial grade carpets normally do not have a pad underneath, there is rarely a need to pull them up. However, if they were underwater for more than a day before we arrived, it may be necessary to carefully pull up both an entry and an exit point to force air underneath. It speeds the drying process and is particularly useful if deterioration is a concern.
At SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County, we understand that each day lost to flooding means a loss of thousands of dollars. To help keep your doors open and your guests or tenants happy, we keep a response team on 24-hour notice. If you need our services, call us today at (805) 507-5507 for more information.
