Why Fast Remediation is Necessary for Your Water Damaged Manhattan Businesses
Manhattan Property Needs Fast Commercial Water Damage Help
For a property in The City, commercial water damage can hurt business when you have to close for repairs from a pipe break and the longer the company remains closed, the more damage done. The key to limiting water loss lays in the quick drying of the structure so you can get back to serving customers.
When SERVPRO assists with commercial water damage in Manhattan businesses, our first concern is safety. During the initial call, unless it is necessary, we advise property owners to avoid the water loss area due to the danger of slip and fall accidents from wet flooring.
Because we are local, our certified technicians arrive quickly on site to begin water cleanup, and we have the equipment to handle large-scale water loss incidents. In the case of multiple floors of a commercial property affected by water loss, our truck-mounted pumps extract thousands of gallons of water and used in tandem with a commercial desiccant dehumidifier dries a structure as quickly as possible.
Desiccant dehumidifiers work by attraction moisture the air movers raise to wheels covered in a non-absorbant substance such as silicone. The water vapor collected on the desiccant and ported away. As the cycle continues progressively drier air circulates in the structure and dries it thoroughly.
Odors are another common problem left behind. When water loss affected areas dry entirely, this frequently lessens odors significantly. When foul scents require more robust measures, we have specialized equipment to combat them. Among them are gel pellets for time release odor control, hydroxyl generators for eradicating airborne odors and even manual methods such as ultra-low volume fogging.
When our technicians complete mitigation for damage from water on a commercial property, in cases where cleanup required removal of sheetrock or other structural components, we let the property owners know what actions are needed to bring the building back to preloss condition. We find that giving the property owners the ability to coordinate with local contractors gets the necessary repairs done quickly.
