We Can Restore Your Dallas Business To Pre-Damage Condition
Commercial Flood Damage Cleanup In Dallas
Small businesses in Dallas are particularly vulnerable to disasters like fire and flood. They do not have the assets of a national network to fall back on, so shutting down for restoration and cleaning for even a week can mean closing their doors permanently.
Commercial flood damage to a Dallas business like a convenience store needs cleaning by a professional restoration company. SERVPRO technicians train extensively to remove water, replace unsalvageable building material, and dry all restorable property.
Most commercial water damage comes from an activated sprinkler or a broken water line. That is treated water, and considered clean, requiring no special efforts to remove it from the business. With flood damage, water comes from outside, usually after a storm. This water is contaminated and can contain soil and other contaminants like pesticides and animal waste. Before starting other efforts, technicians spray the water and all affected surfaces and items to kill any bacteria.
Now, they use pumps and extraction wands to remove the water. The commercial pumps work best with water higher than an inch or two. If the water is only about ankle-deep or lower, technicians start with the extraction wands for more efficient removal. Since this is a convenience store with little or no carpet, SERVPRO team members then force any trace amounts of water out the nearest exit using long-handled squeegees.
Next, one of our inspectors determines if there is any permanent damage to floor trim, paneling, or ceiling tiles. Each of our team members can quickly remove affected building material with a minimum of disruption to the rest of the store.
For equipment that is wet, but otherwise undamaged, our personnel set up fans inside to force the damp air outside. It lowers the humidity and speeds up the normal evaporation process. To further increase the rate of drying, technicians also set-up air movers to force warm, dry air across and under equipment and shelving.
No matter what your business, or how flood water entered into it, our goal at SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas is to help you reopen so you can begin supporting your customers once again. If you require our services, call us at (214) 361-7887 today to schedule a visit.
