We Get You Back In Business In Mecklenburg County After A Flood

3/1/2020 (Permalink)

Our technicians have the state of the art equipment necessary to handle restoring your office building's flood damage right away.

Commercial Flood Damage Brings Mud to Mecklenburg County Office

It is no secret that commercial flood damage hits local businesses hard. Just the loss of revenue during cleanup can take a toll along with the hardship on employees who suddenly do not have a job to go to until the restoration process completes.

When SERVPRO works on commercial flood damage restoration jobs in Mecklenburg County, their goal is to save the business from having to replace as many items as possible and get the company reopened in the shortest amount of time.

Scoping the Loss Area

In a local office, the water was not the most significant issue when groundwater entered a small building. The water soaked the carpet in the reception area and ran down the hallway. SERVPRO technicians found the water receded before going very far into the offices. However, a large amount of mud got left behind, coating the floor.

Extraction and Removal of Loss Items

The glue-down carpet was a loss due to both the delamination and contamination from groundwater. SERVPRO techs extracted the flood damage water to make the carpet lighter to handle and safer to lift for disposal. The baseboards also required removal, and the sheetrock required flood cuts roughly twelve-inches above the floor joints to open up the wall cavities for drying. The use of trash pumps pulled up the thick layer of mud along with the water quickly.

Multi-Layered Drying Methods

SERVPRO techs know that concrete absorbs moisture and requires the power of air movers to release the embedded moisture. This action negates secondary issues such as foul odors or the potential for mold growth. The Injecti-Dry system is beneficial for forcing air into the wall cavities and assists with lowering the interior moisture to expedite the drying process.

Final Wipe Down and Prepping for Repairs

Once the interior confirmed as dry, the techs used their antimicrobial cleaning agents to wipe down the surfaces affected by water loss to leave it sanitized and ready for the replacement of the carpet, baseboards, and sheetrock repairs necessary to get the office reopened.

SERVPRO of North Central Mecklenburg County at (704) 596-9700 stands ready to assist local properties with commercial flood damage cleanup and restoration to make the loss "Like it never even happened."
