Commercial Flood Damage in a Discount Store in Brattleboro
SERVPRO Technicians Know that Time is of the Essence When Dealing with Flooding on Your Commercial Property
Having customers frequent your discount store is a necessary part of doing business, but even the best customers can create accidents at times. Restrooms and drinking fountains can cause flooding when there are problems with clogged sinks or backed up toilets. Broken water lines to both restroom facilities for customers and in the break room for employees can create flooding, also.
Residents in Brattleboro love shopping for the best deals, but commercial flood damage can keep you from providing special offers to them. Being locally owned, we know that even one store by itself can impact our area's economy, so helping you make everything “Like it never even happened” again helps everyone.
Flood damage from overflowing sinks or broken pipes is relatively clean and simple to remove and extract from your store compared to water coming from a toilet. Water from the latter source also requires additional decontamination so that your store's interior is once again clean and sanitary, and incapable of spreading pathogens capable of causing disease or illness.
No matter what size your store is, or how contaminated the water that has flooded your store is, our technicians implement the knowledge they have gained from their IICRC training to mitigate all of the damage. This also pertains to the case of clean water that becomes contaminated before our arrival, as the water can change from Category 1 to Category 2 when it comes into contact with different substances, or even to Category 3 if that contact is long enough or the substance is highly detrimental to human health.
After extracting all standing water and ensuring that we have removed as much moisture as we can, we then use dehumidifiers, heaters, and air movers, which are very powerful and slightly larger-than-normal fans, to restore normal levels of humidity in the air. Cleaning up any of your damaged inventory is also part of our services. You need products to offer your customers, and they need to be in pristine condition. Items that are beyond restoration can be listed in an inventory sheet so you can more easily obtain reimbursement from your insurance agent's office.
