SERVPRO Helps Improve Planning and Expedites Water Cleanup for the Benefit of Commercial Establishments

Many problems can arise after accidental water release into your business premises. However, the worst problem is a poor response. Your response can be deemed correct if you follow some established best practices. Hiring a professional helps ensure you get the desired outcomes.

Keeping calm even as you make plans to expedite water cleanup at your Lindenhurst workplace is a useful trait. Rushing things can cause unnecessary mistakes that damaged items or cause delays. Knowing that a professional team like SERVPRO is in charge of the process can help reassure you.

Other essential best practices when dealing with water intrusion include:

  • Staying motivated 
  • Making a plan before starting the restoration
  • Segmenting the loss site 

The extensive damages from water intrusion can happen almost instantaneously. Drywall panels can swell while ceiling panels sag. If such surfaces are painted, flaking and bubbling can follow while documents and books are distorted from absorbing water. The feeling of despair on visiting the site can derail you since you might feel like all is lost. However, with advanced cleaning resources such as what SERVPRO uses, it is possible to halt or even reverse some of the damages from the water.

The steps taken in the aftermath of water intrusion should:

  • Minimize moisture contact for materials and contents
  • Control microbial growth processes
  • Organize the clutter resulting from water damage

The problems that moisture causes, whether rusting, staining, or rotting, worsen the longer a material is exposed to moisture. SERVPRO technicians aim to limit such exposure by expediting extraction of the intruding water and using cleaning methods that rely on minimal moisture. For instance, using the spray and wipe approach rather than immersion can remove soils without over-wetting items. Limiting moisture also minimizes the chances of microbial growth.
