SERVPRO Provides Business Owners with Water Damage Restoration

Many types of businesses have a water source inside their building. This source may be for services provided to clients, as in the case of dental clinics or hair salons, or in the restroom area, or where food is prepared. All types of water sources can be locations where water begins leaking either slowly, or in high-pressure streams, especially when a water line has busted or uncoupled.

Many Ways to Experience Water Damage, But There's One Way to Clean it Up Best: Professionally
If your Colorado Springs area business has suffered commercial water damage, you need to have the damage removed and repaired by experienced professionals from SERVPRO who are certified in IICRC procedures. While there are several ways listed above that can cause flooding, there are others, including flooding, toilet and water basin overflows, and sewer back-ups. With all of these, it's important to know that even clean water from broken lines should be removed professionally, dirty water from sewers, drains, and floods can carry pathogens that need professional care to protect you and anyone else who enters your place of business.
 
While some damage is readily visible after the water has been removed, pathogens and bacteria are not. This is why our professional experts who are skilled in cleaning up commercial water damage should be used to provide these cleaning and disinfecting services. Water damage can lead to not only the spread of pathogens that can cause disease, but can also permit mold to grow. Other damage may be structural, and affect your building's interior and business inventory and equipment.

Water can seep into porous and semi-porous materials used in the construction of your business or office, and as it dries, it will warp or disintegrate many of these. Others will swell, become buckled and bumpy, and then the damage is very apparent. Crumbling drywall can cause holes to form where electrical wiring can be exposed, creating additional hazards. The damaged area in your business needs to be removed and replaced. Our repair specialists are skilled and certified in this task.

In order to prevent further water damage, as well as prevent mold, our technicians can perform inspections that can locate hidden areas that have water. When the water is extracted and then drying equipment used to decrease further and remove excess moisture, your business is protected even further.

When items used in your office or business need to be removed, we can also pack these up and move them to an off-site location. This provides security from damage during the cleaning and repairing process and also protects against theft of supplies and inventory. We understand that your business needs to return to normal business operations as soon as possible, as every day that you cannot open is another day of lost revenue. We also understand that this is a risk when it comes to customer loyalty, and want you to be able to reopen as quickly as possible, to reduce his very real risk to your business's financial health. Retail trade has goodwill as a cornerstone, and our business helps to keep your business open.
