Commercial Water Damage in Cleburne Office
Long Weekend Results in Commercial Water Damage in Cleburne Office
The longer commercial water damage sits, the more extensive the loss to the structure and contents. The investment in fire and water detection as part of a security system can help firms get notifications of smoke and elevated moisture levels before the problem becomes a huge problem.
After an extended weekend, a Cleburne office needed help with commercial water damage clean up after the manager opened his office on a Tuesday morning and found nearly an inch of standing water in the front of the building.
Immediate Problems from Water Exposure
Due to the lack of on-site monitoring systems, it was not sure when the water loss started. The glue-down carpeting delaminated in the reception area where the majority of the water damage was. The techs remove it so the slab floor underneath could get exposed for both water extraction and drying. The techs moved the reception area furniture to another part of the office as only the legs needed drying and cleaning.
Extra Attention During Extraction
SERVPRO techs found water wicked into the sheetrock in the front of the office, through the use of their detection equipment. They measured above the waterline and removed it in a clean, straight cut known as a flood cut. This organized removal process makes repairs seamless after the mitigation efforts complete.
Drying and Cleanup
After extraction of the water loss completed, the techs set up drying equipment to quickly dry the reception area. The process gets monitored to attain drying goals. Then the techs wipe down all water-affected surfaces with antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaning agents.
Mold Treatment and Preventative Measures
Because airborne mold spores are always present both indoors and outdoors, the setup of mold infestations after a water loss can be an issue. With their extensive training and certification in mold remediation #MRC1353, the techs know the early warning signs as well as how to handle any existing mold growth without spreading the spores. After the drying, the application of antimicrobial sealant ensures mold will not be a problem before repairs get made.
