Why SERVPRO Is Best for Dallas Flood Restoration
Storm damages can overwhelm area businesses and homes, making the fast response of our SERVPRO team vital to help. When a Dallas doctor's office faced intruding floodwater, our team mobilized quickly to help. As you can see in the Before Photo, our technicians arrive with our Green Fleet of service vehicles equipped with industry-leading tools and powerful cleaning products to begin cleaning and flood restoration. You can see in this photograph that our professionals have already started to stretch out the intake hoses into the damaged space from the truck-mounted extractor unit outside.
Pack-Out and Content Relocation Services
The first thing that our SERVPRO technicians did for this Dallas clinic was to remove any of the furniture or contents directly in the path of the migrating damage. Any items exposed to standing water or the elevated moisture in the environment were relocated to another area of the building to protect them from irreparable harm. The fast action in this sense preserved sensitive electronics from damp conditions that could cause costlier damages with replacement or repairs.
Eliminating Standing Water from the Structure
Our truck-mount extraction tool is a premier option for fast and thorough water removal services. Because much of the damage was contained in the reception area of the doctor's office, we fixated on getting the appropriate amount of necessary hose to reach the farthest points of this lobby and waiting area to clear the wood flooring of standing water concerns. Other extraction units and specialty drying tools were available on the Green Fleet vehicles outside, such as:
- Portable wet vacuums
- Weighted extractors
- Carpet wands
- Drying mats
Containing the Damaged Areas and Minimizing Our Presence
It was our intention through this effort that even when reaching stages like you see in the After Photo that the medical professionals here could still see and treat patients. This involved containment of the work area. We worked efficiently and minimized our presence by focusing on powerful extraction and drying tools.
Thorough Drying Without Demolition or Reconstruction
A complete inspection of the property after standing water removal is vital to determining the extent of damage the flooding caused the building. Moisture meters and thermal imagery were used to track damp pockets in the office and choose the best drying plans for superficial damages. Because we responded quickly, we could begin evaporation without needing to remove flooring materials.
Clean and Sanitary Workspace for this Dallas Office
Our Dallas SERVPRO professionals appreciated the potential contaminants that existed with the intruding floodwater and worked to address these concerns with fast action. Surface cleaning techniques were possible with standing water gone and much of the moisture resolved from the engineered wood flooring in the reception area. Surface wipe cleaning with antibacterial disinfectants and biocides eliminates harmful microbes and microorganisms and prevents secondary effects like mold growth from occurring on these treated surfaces. During the drying process, inhibiting microbial development made this doctor's office safer for any patients, staff, or restoration technicians still working on the property.
