Restoring a Medical Clinic through Commercial Water Removal in Damascus
SERVPRO’s Commercial Water Removal Process
Any building in Damascus can become damaged. The elements outside can create problems for building owners, while inside, electrical shorts can create small fires or water lines can break. The smoke from a fire can cause sprinkler systems to activate, causing substantial and widespread damage. A drinking fountain with a broken feed line can create localized damage. Both need prompt and professional remediation to prevent existing damages from escalating.
If your medical clinic in Damascus suffers from commercial water damage because of situations similar to the above, acting quickly can keep restoration and cleaning costs minimal. SERVPRO hires technicians dedicated to our customers and their needs. When a building suffers damage of any kind, business operations suffer, which can lead to many subsequent difficulties.
Our ability to respond Faster To Any Size Disaster helps our customers by reducing the number of secondary damages experienced and reducing the length of time that a business's operations remain stagnant. Local businesses of all kinds make up our local economy, and each one has a vital place in our community. We want to restore damaged businesses, so they continue providing the services needed in our area.
To clean up after a water emergency, the most straightforward part is removing the visible water with pumps and smaller extraction units. Our IICRC-certified employees, using smaller extraction tools, efficiently remove moisture saturating carpets in corners, hallways, under desks, and on stairways.
After this initial phase of our restoration work, SERVPRO continues by speeding up the evaporation rate of the water left in carpet padding and lower fibers, drywall, wood, and other parts of your building's structure. We do this via powerful air movers that not only lift moisture out and away from these materials, but also direct that moisture in a specific path, making it easy for us to collect it with our heavy-duty desiccant machines. While some of this work requires that we dry the interior areas of a wall, we also perform this with great care so that no newly made ventilation holes remain visible. While we work, things may seem messy, but we always take the time to clean up afterward.
We also implement dehumidifiers in certain areas. Because some materials hold onto moisture more than other materials can, we steadily apply gentle heat to help increase evaporation even more. Flooring tends to do this, but floor mats, with heat built-in, as well as an enclosed condensation tank that collects the moisture, helps us dry floors quickly. This can help prevent flooring boards from warping, which requires costly replacements. It is much less expensive to dry the floor instead.
SERVPRO of Abingdon / Bristol / Marion wants to help your clinic continue providing the much-needed services to our community. When your business needs commercial water removal, call us at (276) 258-5071, so we can work with you to make it “Like it never even happened.”
