What to Expect During Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Your Redington Shores Store
Trust SERVPRO for Expert Commercial Water Damage Restoration
Water damage to your store can be disastrous. Not only does the restoration process cost you money, but you lose business during the restoration process itself. That said, the restoration process is not easy after a water damage incident. The time required for the restoration can depend on the extent and severity of the damage. It is of great value for a store owner to understand the process itself to better prepare for the things to come in such a scenario.
The first and perhaps the most important thing to do after water damage to your Redington Shores store is to call in the professionals. The earlier they can come to your establishment, the quicker they can get their job done. Here is a broad overview of events that you can expect to unfold during the restoration process.
Extraction of Water
The first thing to do is to extract any liquid water from the premises. SERVPRO professionals can use equipment called extractors to get this job done. The professionals can use different capacity extractors based on the volume of water to be extracted. For smaller volumes, a hand-held extractor might work, while for larger volumes, truck-mounted extractors may be needed.
Eliminating the Residual Moisture
Once the water has been removed from your establishment, the technicians start eliminating the remaining moisture left behind. It is crucial to eliminate this moisture as soon as possible as it can cause many secondary problems including mold, if not addressed.
Our IICRC certified technicians use several types of equipment to eliminate the remaining moisture from the premises. Some of the equipment includes dehumidifiers and air movers. While dehumidifiers eliminate the moisture by trapping it from the air and converting it into liquid water, the air movers improve the speed of drying.
A strategic combination of both these equipment speeds up the drying process and reduces the time for the restoration.
Odor can be a massive problem for many businesses. Customers do not want to shop in a place that smells weird. As a result, the third and final step in the restoration process is odor elimination. Technicians use multiple methods and equipment to eliminate the odor left behind by the water damage.
The time required to complete all these steps depend on the extent and nature of the damage.
