SERVPRO Can Quickly Remediate Water Damage at Your Business Location

Restoring a business back to its original state has its own, special requirements. Different property absorbs water and deteriorates at a different rate. Since paper is one of the first items to deteriorate, a bookstore's primary concern is not going to be the carpet or the hardwood floors. It is going to be their inventory. In this case, lowering the moisture level is going to be their first concern and our first task.

It is not going to be an easy one in Florida, but it can be accomplished. The inspector on our SERVPRO response team will use a commercial moisture meter to measure air content levels in every corner in every room. This allows us to determine the fastest plan to reduce levels to normal and restore commercial water damage. As the inspector begins, our team will pump out any standing water as quickly as possible. We need to do this in order to provide a safe working environment for our people and the store's employees.

As soon as it is safe, technicians will set up commercial air movers. This begins the process to replace the damp air with dry air. This not only lowers the moisture level but also pushes air over the inventory, drying books and other property directly.

Once the air movers are set-up, members of the response team will assist the store owner in moving property out of the affected area. It is important to isolate everything that should be thrown out in order to determine what can be saved and returned to inventory. Our team members can also assist in laying out salvageable books and other property on dry surfaces to help facilitate a faster restoration.

In corners or small rooms where air movers cannot be used effectively, dehumidifiers will be installed. These devices can draw up to 30 gallons of moisture a day from the surrounding air.

Swamp walks and Manatee watching is great for the tourists, but many of them still want to lay out on the beach with a good book. The weather forecast is good now, but rain is coming this weekend. Regardless of what business you may own or operate, SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island is ready to help you recover and reopen your doors. Call us at (239) 302-5700 to get started.
