Commercial Structural Damages that can Affect Almost Any Office in Bonifay Insure Your Bonifay Office Against Water Damage

SERVPRO Gets Your Water Damaged Business Going Again

Office buildings and environments vary wildly in style, layout, materials, and structural specifications, making some blanket assumptions about water damage difficult to justify in every scenario. Most office buildings luckily fit into a few key profiles, but we can only really know what treatments will be necessary once our technicians are on-site and able to examine the damage. However, here are some of the most common structural issues we remedy in an office setting.

Carpeting
Most offices have at least some carpeting in them, which is, unfortunately, one of the most vulnerable targets in Bonifay commercial water damage cases. Carpeting easily absorbs water and warps once dried out, often tearing apart and off of tack strips that hold it down. Although most types of flooring are vulnerable to flood damage and water damage in general, carpeting is salvaged less often than other types. However, in many cases, rugs and carpets not fixed to the floor may be more readily restored.
 
Wood Supports
In some flooding cases, wooden supports and columns can present a serious safety hazard. If not dealt with carefully, these may fail, triggering a partial or full collapse. This is especially prevalent in older buildings, where waterproof materials and resistant laminates are less common. Wood is also highly susceptible to mold damage and must be treated accordingly to stop growth. Our SERVPRO technicians can deal with mold remediation.
 
Foundational Damage
Perhaps the most consistent feature among office buildings is the presence of a solid foundation. During water damage, a foundation may end up taking on accidental damage, especially if prior issues had existed. If not properly dealt with, these problems could potentially lead to a total collapse. Fast water extraction and damage assessment is key in making sure these issues don't blow up into larger ones.
