Commercial Water Damage In Colorado Springs
Commercial Water Damage in Colorado Springs Office Started Small
Slow leaks bring not only commercial water damage but also the potential for mold and foul odors. Eventually, if it does not get addressed, the problem compounds and can even lead to more significant issues such as mold or the need to replace building materials.
An office in Colorado Springs had a slow leak that had gone unnoticed until the supply line broke and spewed water out of a utility closet at the end of a hallway, soaking the carpet.
Confirming Water Locations
When there is a leak, all areas of water loss may not be readily visible. SERVPRO technicians visually access job sites and also use advanced moisture detection equipment that allows them to "see" behind sheetrock, underfloors, and a host of other areas to determine anywhere water migrated.
Removal Actions for Drying
After extraction as much water as possible with their portable pumps, the techs removed the industrial carpet and padding so the subfloor could dry. The rubber baseboards along the wall and floor joint needed removal as the techs discovered excessive moisture behind them. Fortunately, the sheetrock did not wick water as the cleanup began so quickly after the water loss even happened, and it required only drying.
Drying Phase Actions
When SERVPRO techs dry a property, they carefully set up the air movers and dehumidification equipment in ways that circulate the progressively drier air and work to bring down the air moisture levels as fast as possible. This process gets carefully monitored, so the loss area dries completely.
Preventative Mold Applications
With their training and certification in mold remediation: #118604, the technicians know the early warning signs of a mold infestation and conditions that are conducive for colony growth. The use of antimicrobial cleaning agents and the application of sealants around the slow leak area inhibit any airborne spores from germinating and setting up home. Additionally, wiping down all water loss areas works to deodorize and remove residual water odors.
