SERVPRO Says Keep Inspections Up-To-Date on All Your Building's Infrastructures

SERVPRO Can Help You Overcome Commercial Water Damage in Oxford Valley

Oxford Valley commercial water damage is not a matter to take lightly, and you may be wondering how to overcome the current challenges you are facing. Everything from a natural weather event to a leaking pipe can cause water damage in your place of business, and this can impact property condition as well as your ability to conduct business as usual. Ideally, you want to restore fully the property as soon as possible so that business can continue as normal. There are a few steps that you can take to move past this situation more swiftly.

Stopping the Flow of Water

The first step to take with Oxford Valley commercial water damage is to cut-off the flow of water into the building. This may be by waiting for sewage or floodwaters to recede, or it may be turning off the main water supply valve to the property in the event of a plumbing issue. After the flow of water into the building has been stopped, you can move forward with plans to repair the property.

Drying the Property Out

After a flood or water event in a commercial property, the next step to take is to remove the standing water by extraction services. Proven methods of water extraction will remove all traces of water from the property. However, moisture levels in the building may still be high after a flood, and this can promote mold growth even if the standing water is extracted promptly. Mold can pose health concerns, so it's crucial to reduce the humidity level in the building to a normal level as soon as possible. Dehumidifiers and foggers can be utilized for moisture removal. This step must be completed before the remediation or repair process can begin.

Restoring the Building

Water damage can wreak havoc on your building, causing considerable property damage to the flooring, furnishing, electronics, drywall, cabinetry and more. Some items, such as electronics that have gotten wet, may need to be discarded and replaced. Other items, such as flooring, might be salvageable.
