Why Commercial Water Damage Requires Professional Care and Attention in Cleburne

Commercial Water Damage Cleburne
Laundromats require regular inspection and maintenance of appliances to ensure they do not fail under the stress of multiple customers using them throughout the day. While inspections can reduce the number of malfunctions that occur, they cannot stop them completely. When water pipes or the appliances themselves malfunction, you can often find yourself ankle deep in water and in need of rapid, professional assistance.

We have an extensive roster of clients that have required restoration of commercial water damage here in Cleburne. Each service presents unique challenges, which are why at SERVPRO, we rely on our training and experience rather than one-size-fits-all approaches. Usually, an emergency at your Laundromat is considered a clean-water emergency. Although over-time, these issues can become increasingly severe, particularly when standing water is involved. Typically, tiled floors in this washing facilities are mopped and vacuumed up, leaving just work for the dehumidifiers and air movers to remove excess moisture.

All water types contain microbes. Microbes within the water, as well as the length of time water,  is allowed to remain, can cause a white emergency to deteriorate into greywater. Greywater emergencies are not harmful to human health but can cause rot or mold to emerge. This Category 2 greywater can also occur if cleaning products are dissolved in the liquid. Sewage back-ups are generally considered black water. These scenarios require infectious waste removal licensing as well as personal protective equipment (PPE) to prevent pathogens from ingestion.

SERVPRO is adept at dealing with all kinds of water emergencies. Every technician is trained in the various techniques and methods that are useful for restoring commercial properties. These may include water removal, microbial awareness, as well as dealing with and disposing of infectious waste materials. Our first step is to pump water out of the property using submersible gas pumps that deposit water into an open sewer point.

Once the standing water is reduced, a SERVPRO technician, or team of technicians, can begin implementing proper drying techniques. These begin using wet/ dry vacuums known as water extractors to remove any residual moisture left behind after pumping. Gas-powered pumps are usually only ineffective below two inches of standing water. We can then place a combination of rapid-air moving devices to encourage the evaporation process.

Since standing water naturally migrates from wet to dry, it may be necessary to inspect structural cavities using sensors, moisture meters, or thermal imaging cameras. We stock advanced structural drying equipment should your business property require this process. Evaporation and temperature increase evaporation but also indoor relative humidity. This increase in humidity can be a microbial growth concern. By deploying dehumidifiers in conjunction with air-movers, we can prevent that from happening. In the event of microbial growth, something that patrons of a laundromat frown upon, we can use our Mold Remediation Contractor License #: MRC1353 to take care of the problem.

If your business suffers an emergency involving any-type of water, contact SERVPRO of Crowley & South Johnson County at (817) 297-8588.
