The Real Truth About White River Junction Flood Damage Remediation and Mold in Your Store
Preventing Additional Complications From Commercial Flood Damage in White River Junction
Over the winter, cold snaps occur regularly in White River Junction and can affect business operations in the area. Unmitigated damage to your retail store can lead to additional damage to the structure throughout the winter months. SERVPRO works with business owners to clean up such damage and keep it from expanding into damage-free areas.
Reopening your retail store's doors to the public after commercial flood damage in White River Junction closes them prevents significant long-term losses, both in time and money. We know you put a lot into the daily operations of your store and that our local economy relies on small businesses like yours. Winter is harsh enough without freezing flooded areas and making things worse.
Hindsight is 20/20, and others who have suffered through such incidents often wish they had prepared more thoroughly for a disaster. SERVPRO offers a free program, our Emergency READY Profile, helps reduce the amount of time spent gathering crucial information and gets mitigation and restoration work started more quickly.
However, if you already are looking at flood damage in your store, we can help make sure that freezing temperatures do not cause more damage. Ice expands, and as it does this, anything that contains it becomes increasingly weaker. Wooden beams can sustain less weight and create dangerous situations inside your store. Building code violations can become quite costly, as can injuries and tarnished reputations as a responsible business owner in the community. We can help protect you from the snowballing effect of such incidents.
Removing floodwater as soon as it enters your store can help reduce the amount of damage, of course, but during the winter, when the power goes out, or it remains unsafe to keep the furnace running, any moisture can quickly freeze. SERVPRO specialists arrive in our Green Fleet, complete with our own power supply. We use this to run heaters for both our health and safety as well as to speed up evaporation rates of moisture trapped in materials.
We work as quickly as possible, so things return to normal, “Like it never even happened.” After drying, we begin cleaning and wiping everything down to remove silt and other residues. Microbial infestations like mold become more likely after a flood, even in the winter, so we prevent this with the application of anti-microbial agents. Odors from flood damage can detract from your store's image, making it crucial that we use highly effective odor control methods like thermal fogging or hydroxyl gas generation.
