Commercial Water Damage
SERVPRO Has the Tools and Equipment to React Quickly to a Water Damage Event at Your Office
Many businesses today have eliminated physical, if not literal, paperwork as part of their daily routine. Going digital protects their clients from accidental loss in case of flooding, either from a sudden storm or broken pipes in a bathroom or break room. This is not possible, however, for certain businesses.
A real estate office still has plans, contracts, and other documents that require a paper copy. This requirement makes quick commercial water removal and drying out property so valuable in Brunswick County. A pile of wet papers is useless for submitting a bid or closing on a house. This is why SERVPRO of Brunswick & South Columbus Counties maintains a 24-hour response team to start the job within hours or even minutes after we get the call.
To ensure we return your business to its original state, we develop a drying goal. This is the condition that the waiting area, offices, and conference room should be in for our work to be completed. At the end of the restoration, we test for the following: Moisture content from dry, unaffected contents and the structure, Percentage of moisture in wood materials and Points in non-wood materials. As an example, the moisture content for subfloors in unaffected areas is usually ten percent while drywall should test out usually at 12 points.
These are the goals for affected areas and why we begin drying out the surrounding air as soon as we pump out or extract standing water. Once we get the moisture content(relative humidity) under forty percent, the air itself begins to draw moisture from building materials, furniture, and other property. The task for our technicians is to get the numbers of the affected rooms and assets lower than those of the unaffected areas. If the entire building is affected, our response team uses a pre-determined chart developed over decades of experience and testing as a guide.
For SERVPRO of Brunswick & South Columbus Counties, pumping out water is only the beginning of the removal and restoration process. Each business has its own requirements, and after more than four decades, we have seen and met just about all of them. If you need our services, call us today at (910) 755-6717.
