How Do I Get Water Out of the Walls of My Santa Rosa Beach Shop?

a crack in the pipe with water spewing When your shop is facing water damage from damaged plumbing, it is time to contact SERVPRO. We are here 24/7.

Broken plumbing can leave structural cavities a mess, but our professionals have several strategies for drying out space between wall systems. 

In most construction projects over the past half a century, commercial buildings and residences through Santa Rosa Beach were constructed as aesthetically pleasing as possible by hiding utilities out of sight. Water lines, electric, and gas lines all became neatly tucked into the framework for the building to emerge only in the areas where fixtures or appliances existed. Even with the limited need for water service beyond the restrooms in your shop, these aging pipes could still present a silent threat to the property.

How Bad is the Water Damage Under the Surface?

You can see how migrating water can begin to impact your wares and the entire structure through the initial walkthrough before contacting our professionals for commercial water damage restoration in your Santa Rosa Beach shop. What you cannot see is the damage taking place behind surface materials like drywall and brick that otherwise hide your plumbing network. Our SERVPRO professionals have sophisticated tools to help identify moisture pockets beyond the surface, including thermal imagery and surface moisture meters.

What Methods Remove Trapped Water?

However, finding the damage beyond the surface of wall systems is only part of the restoration solution that your shop needs. Removing dampness and moisture trapped where plumbing breaches occur can help in multiple ways. First, we get the opportunity to reach the damaged plumbing and repair it. We can eliminate lingering moisture as well to reduce the likelihood of microbial threats. Some of the strategies for removing trapped water include:

  • Positive Pressure Systems
  • Negative Pressure Systems
  • Centrifugal Air Movers
  • Desiccant Dehumidifiers
  • Controlled Demolition

Responding quickly to water emergencies can get your doors open again quickly. Give our SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties team a call today at (850) 267-0746.
