Commercial Water Damage In Columbia Plumbing Supply Store

Sometimes water loss incidents happen in places that do not readily come to mind, such as you might not expect a pipe break in a store that supplies plumbers with supplies and equipment. No matter where it happens, it is vital the cleanup efforts begin quickly to limit the loss to property and closure time.

SERVPRO answered a call to mitigate commercial water damage in a Columbia plumbing supply store. Like most brick and mortar stores that depend on foot traffic and stock sales, our goal is to get the property dried and reopened with as little water loss to products as possible.

It's not uncommon for our technicians to split into different teams, and in this way, we handle multiple tasks at once. While one group gets busy scoping the water damaged areas to determine all places in the building with excessive moisture, another team works on water extraction with our portable pumps. The more moisture that we extract on the front end of the restoration services, the faster the drying cycle goes.

Damage to stock is a concern when there is a water loss situation. Our technicians inspect things one by one to determine the restorability potential. When it is necessary to remove items from shelves, we take photos and make a careful note of the location of the item. After restoration, we replace items where they came from to minimize disruptions to the business.

The removal of floor coverings is standard for cleaning and sanitization for reuse with clean water spills. SERVPRO technicians work hard to ensure there is as little loss as possible, and the doors of the business reopen quickly. Because our technicians spend extra time on water removal, this lessens the drying time needed.

Before reopening SERVPRO technicians:
    •    Wipe all water-affected services
    •    Promptly address any residual water odors
    •    Perform any necessary preventative treatments for mold
    •    Replace any stock items removed for cleaning and sanitization

SERVPRO of Maury / Giles Counties is ready to help property owners with cleanup and restoration services to get rid of commercial water damage. Contact us at (931) 388-4248 for assistance 24-hours a day, and we can turn around the loss and make it “Like it never even happened.”

Commercial You Can Count On Our Experts When Your Columbia Property Experiences A Water Damage Incident If you ever have a toilet backup inside your bank, call SERVPRO of Maury / Giles Counties at (931) 388-4248 any day of the week.

Commercial Water Cleanup Experts In Columbia Talk About Issues With Toilet Back Ups

Disasters can happen just about anywhere, including your workplace in Columbia. As things inside a building age, they can break and cause your place of business to have to conduct extensive commercial water cleanup. One item every home and business must have is a restroom equipped with toilets. Sometimes toilets can get clogged, which can cause them to back up and spill contaminated water out into your bank's building. If the incident happens overnight and several gallons of toilet water get into your structure, it's wise to contact in a professional water cleanup company like SERVPRO.

Since toilet water is considered to be contaminated by harmful bacteria and parasites, our SERVPRO technicians use different methods during mitigation. When handling any commercial water cleanup project in Columbia, we determine the source of the damage before we begin any restoration work. If the source of the issues is a water pipe running to your toilets or sinks, then the problem is considered a category one situation since the source is clean water. If a drain running from your sink leaks or the source turns out to be rainwater, then the problems are labeled as category two since there is a chance that contaminants are present. When the source of the damage is muddy water or comes from your toilets or sewage lines, then it is very likely the water is contaminated, so the situation gets treated as a category three problem.

When dealing with category three sewage water, our water restoration technicians or WRTs at SERVPRO take extra measures to reduce the spread of contaminants. When mitigating problems at your bank, we first figure out which building materials and contents got affected by the contaminated water. Once we determine how far the water went inside your building, we remove any porous materials that got wet, including your carpet and drywall.

Once we remove all of the porous materials inside your structure that touched the category three water, we treated the exposed floor and studs with disinfectants to rid the area of harmful microorganisms. If you ever have a toilet backup inside your bank, call SERVPRO of Maury / Giles Counties at (931) 388-4248 any day of the week.

We Help You Get Back To Business In Columbia

Commercial We Help You Get Back To Business In Columbia We have the equipment that can detect water that has seeped into the cracks in the floor of your business and act fast with our services.

Overview of Commercial Water Removal for Columbia Service Industries

Commercial water damage can halt your business until it is mitigated. Besides the visible effect on the building structure, there are also safety issues and the possibility of secondary damage such as mold if the moisture is not removed as quickly as possible.

When SERVPRO performs commercial water removal in Columbia businesses, extraction is something we spend extra time doing because every bit of moisture removed beforehand, lessens the drying time and speeds the restoration process along. We know this is especially crucial for commercial properties involved in the retail and hospitality sector as they rely on foot traffic for a good portion of their revenue.

For water removal in a small area, we have portable extractors. Large scale water spills are no match for our truck-mounted pumps that can pull thousands of gallons of water in short order. In properties that have carpeting, we have weighted and stand-on extractor units that use weight to push water out of the padding and assist the carpet in drying. Each of these extraction methods helps in reducing water loss.

The other part of water removal occurs during the drying phase of restoration. Moisture lifted by the air movers during drying is disposed of using different types of dehumidifiers. Desiccant dehumidifiers are an effective way to remove excess moisture. A wheel coated with a substance such as a silica gel attracts the water vapor, and as it collects, the weight turns the wheel, and the water drops off into a disposal port, and the process begins again.

Our SERVPRO technicians have a goal of getting your commercial property back to the business of serving customers as quickly as possible. We communicate with you every step of the way to ensure you know what our technicians are doing throughout the restoration process.

SERVPRO of Maury / Giles Counties is available 24-hours at (931) 388-4248 for commercial water removal. Our emergency response teams have the training and equipment to restore damage from your water loss and make it "Like it never even happened."

Fast Extraction Techniques for a Spring Hill Coffee Shop

When water loss incidents threaten your coffee shop, even isolated events like considerable spills can spread too quickly for your staff to keep up with and manage. The last thing that your shop needs is mold growth that shuts down your business until the appropriate personnel and inspectors can affirm that you are safe to rejoin the food and beverage industry. It is wise to reach out to professional restoration technicians like ours to help you limit loss and return the property to its original condition fast, whenever possible.

As the owner of the coffee shop in Spring Hill, you have many concerns that follow your need for water removal in the building. The first of these is all of the structures and woodwork that make up your counters, storage, and flooring. Our SERVPRO professionals have drying equipment that can keep these elements safe from necessary tear out and reconstruction if we get notified of the emergency quickly enough.

With water removal, extraction is the vital element that ensures that our technicians can begin the necessary restoration work as promptly as possible. We arrive with many different tools for this step, including gas-powered pumps, extraction wands with wet-vacs, and even portable electric sump pumps that can run off of generators we provide if your building has lost power.

Restoring elements like hardwood flooring, even high-quality laminates intended to look like hardwood, is often an intricate process. For preventing the excessive drying of these materials, our SERVPRO team installs large drying mats to slowly draw moisture out of the seams and planks until the desired moisture level gets reached. Overly drying materials like wood flooring can cause as many damages as allowing them to become oversaturated and distort.

Protecting your business after a water loss incident does not have to be complicated when you reach out to the right professional team. Our SERVPRO of Maury / Giles Counties technicians are standing by to help, 24/7, at (931) 388-4248.
