Contact Certified Restorers Like SERVPRO Immediately to Help With Flood Damage Restoration in Your Santa Rosa Beach Business

When flood water gets into your business, it can cause significant damage within 24 hours. Mold growth may occur, your wooden floor may begin warping, and odors may linger in the property. It is vital to involve SERVPRO professionals immediately to restore your business.

The dangers of trapped moisture

The damage caused by floodwater is painfully obvious and motivates most business owners to handle commercial flood damage restoration in Santa Rosa Beach. However, without proper skills and the right equipment and tools, the business owners end up with severe damages.

The moisture left behind creates risks such as:

  • Poor structural integrity: Pillars may begin to rot leading to a weak structure.
  • Mold growth: Mold produces toxic spores that can cause health effects to your employees and customers. Our technicians treat areas with mold using unique but approved products. We can use vanquish, a disinfectant that destroys 99 percent of microorganisms it gets into contact with.
  • Economic loss: Some insurance companies do not cover water damage caused by flooding, leading to a financial burden on business owners. 

How do technicians dry an affected property?

Depending on the magnitude of flood damage, SERVPRO technicians can use an indirect fired furnace, the building airspace. The equipment uses a heat exchanger. It takes dry outdoor air and heats it before introducing it into the drying zone. The machine takes the evaporated water from wet materials, increasing the humidity ratio of the air.

Flood damage should not affect your daily business. Contact SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, and Holmes & Washington Counties at (850) 267-0746 for efficient restoration services “Like it never even happened.”
