Prepping a Fort Lee Facility & Its Contents for Water Restoration
Water Restoration Helps Business Operations Resume
Regardless of the source, water that finds its way into your warehouse's interior in Fort Lee can quickly become a problem. Once there, it can start damaging the interior and anything stored inside. For your company to get the most out of water restoration, SERVPRO needs to prepare your facility.
Specific steps make water restoration faster for Fort Lee area businesses. These precautions also protect your inventory and equipment from water's harmful destruction, including rot, mold, and corrosion.
For some aspects, we work with your employees, such as moving inventory and other valuable items into safer areas. Other aspects of preparing for water restoration require specialized skills and training. Our IICRC-certified technicians carry out the following:
- Handling the source of the water,
- Removing the water, and
- Drying out the facility.
Flooding, broken pipes or sprinkler systems, a torn roof during a storm, and many other possible situations can initiate a catastrophe in your warehouse. Our technicians know how to respond to each of these and stop the water threatening to damage your investment.
We always scale our services to the needs of our customers' situations, so water extraction and removal might begin with hand-held wands, a riding extraction unit, or our powerful pump truck. While we do this, we are also wiping down and drying anything that is more prone to damage from high humidity, keeping an eye out for electrical and gas hazards, and taking baseline readings to help with the drying process and the restoration stage.
More than removing the water is needed for restoration to begin, however. We also need to establish dry conditions that pose no risk to new materials after their installation and also protect the contents in your building. Airflow is very efficient at getting things dry, but we add to it with directed heat. For large-scale flooding, we also use desiccant machines.
