Is Water Damage Keeping Your Bristol Office From Doing Business?
Critical Steps Professionals Take during Commercial Water Removal in Bristol Offices
Water intrusion in an office may not be an everyday event. However, if it does happen, it can leave widespread damages. The steps taken immediately after identifying the problem can have a significant impact on the outcome of the entire incident. One way to manage the level of damages left in your property after the incident is to call a professional water restoration team immediately because they have advanced equipment and training to handle the removal.
The resources needed for commercial water removal in Bristol offices differ depending on the intrusion sources. An intrusion from the roof affects many items including ceilings, contents and floor materials. There might be a need to protect contents if stopping the source is not possible immediately. Our SERVPRO technicians can install plastic sheets to protect contents or isolate severely damaged areas. Some water sources such as burst pipes might also dump significant amounts of water in the affected areas necessitating the use of advanced extraction equipment. We use truck-mounted or portable water extractors depending on the situation.
Apart from pooling on the floors, the water that spills permeates different materials necessitating additional removal steps. Glued down carpets which are a common feature in many offices absorb water readily. They can also bubble due to loss of adhesiveness. Our SERVPRO technicians assess the situation and determine whether to remove the carpet or do in-place extraction of the water.
After a case of water intrusion, a considerable amount of moisture remains after the initial extraction steps. Drying such moisture requires an increase in evaporation rate and extraction of humidity from the air. Professionals use air movers and dehumidifiers for this purpose. Our SERVPRO technicians can also use plastic sheets to isolate smaller areas to improve the rate of drying. We call such isolation, creating drying chambers. We also do calculations to determine the number of dehumidifiers and air movers to use.
