Remediating Commercial Water Damage in Santa Rosa Beach

1/22/2018 (Permalink)

Donated inventory must stay dry to reach the hands of people who need the items. Should your charity shop suffer water damage, contact SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians Respond Quickly to Help Restore Your Water Damaged Items

After so much damage from the weather, Santa Rosa Beach business owners forget that the majority of property loss from water comes from much more common sources. Broken pipes are year-round and result in more repair and restoration costs than a hurricane.
 
Santa Rosa Beach commercial water damage does not only affect area businesses looking to make a profit. Charity shops and donation centers need to be open to raise needed funds and provide services. SERVPRO knows every disaster needs a quick response, especially for those agencies helping residents still rebuilding from last year.
 
Our response teams can turn off the water and stop the source of the leak if the owner has not already done it. Several team members determine if we can fix the problem. We do not have licensed plumbers, but minor breakdowns we can try to repair. The rest of the team begins the process of removing water from the structure, drying floors and walls, and drying out the donated property.
 
SERVPRO team members use pumps and extraction wands to draw water off the floors. After we remove it, specialists open the doors and push out any remaining moisture out of the structure with long-handled squeegees.
 
Now, we can set up dehumidifiers. These devices draw moisture from the air, soaked building material like drywall, and donated inventory items. Each one can remove up to 25 gallons of water each day. To augment the effectiveness of the dehumidifiers, we can set up axial fans to create negative pressure and force the damp, inside air out of the structure.
 
We maintain drying racks at our offices for large items like curtains, but we can also use them to hang inventory, so the items have more space between them and dry faster. To speed up this process, we can bring in air movers to circulate warm, dry air across the donated inventory.
 
Our goal is to help every business reopen quickly to support our local communities rebuild and grow. If you need our services, call SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties today at (850) 267-0746. We are here for you.
