Expert Commercial Water Removal for Bristol Business’

When running a business like a laundromat, water damage is always a risk. Without thorough professional mitigation, this damage can affect appliances, flooring, walls, subflooring, and much more. In the right conditions, even small disasters can breed mold and other microbes and put customers, appliances, and structures at risk.

If your Bristol business requires commercial water removal services from an experienced team, you can count on the professionals at SERVPRO to get the job done right the first time. SERVPRO's extraction tools, EPA-registered antimicrobials, and industrial-grade drying equipment all work together to restore businesses to their preloss conditions. Certified technicians work closely with property owners and insurance adjusters to ensure that cleaning is done to code.

Laundromat Insurance Tips

  • Double-check your insurance policy. It may cover replacing washers and dryers, but may not cover the full cost of water damage due to appliance failure. When itemizing damages, be sure to look at floors, walls, assets that may have been damaged, and paperwork. Also, be sure to account for lost earnings.
  • Look over your lease. This is an important step, as insurance requirements and the burden of responsibility are usually detailed in your contract. Have your attorney review your leasing papers with you to ensure accurate interpretation of legal terminology.
  • Compensate your workers. If you have staff on-site handling tasks like folding or drying, it is necessary to have workers' compensation included in the insurance policy. Make sure to have adequate funds available in case a customer files a claim against you due to water damage.

How SERVPRO Helps Businesses

SERVPRO uses a multi-pronged approach to clean up water, remove odors, and dry structures after a disaster occurs. Depending on the extent of the damage, technicians can use everything from portable, back-mounted extractors and submersible gas-powered sump pumps to truck-mounted extraction equipment to thoroughly remove water and prepare the space for drying. 

After removing water, carefully-placed air movers and dehumidifiers can work in tandem to dry out the structure. As parts of the space get increasingly dry, polyethylene drying chambers may be set up to accelerate the drying process. In the event of odors or further cleanup necessities, SERVPRO also utilizes OSHA-approved antimicrobials, as well as commercial-grade deodorizing equipment, to get you back in business.

SERVPRO of Bristol serves the community because We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. You can call (860) 582-3330 for disaster cleanup service at any time of the day or night.
