Commercial Water Damage Clean-up
Being closed due to water damage is bad for business, and stressful for business owners who do not know when they can safely reopen, how significant the loss is, and will there be issues afterward?
The key to avoiding secondary issues after commercial water damage in San Antonio business is a thorough cleanup. Not only the moisture requires removal but also ambient humidity levels need addressing. The increased humidity levels have the potential to ruin stock, and these items necessitate moving to another area of the building to a move-out to a secure storage location.
Water Extraction Methods
Consumer-grade wet/dry vacuums and even the equipment the regular cleaning crew possesses is generally not robust enough to pull embedded water out of the structure and contents. SERVPRO North Central San Antonio technicians have attachments such as weighted extractor heads that push water out of the carpet and upholstered furnishings to speed the drying process.
Fans Do Not Adequately Dry Water Loss Areas
Commercial drying equipment uses the science of psychrometry. Even industrial fans used for cooling commercial properties do not possess the power of an air mover. This machine blows air across the surface and actually causes embedded moisture to rise. Centrifugal air movers can direct strong, focused streams of heated air to wipe moisture from surfaces allowing LGR low grain refrigerant and desiccant dehumidifiers to capture the water vapor.
Odor Control is Vital
Even a little water odor is off-putting for customers and employees. This is a sign that an excess of moisture remains in the property. Situations often lead to issues with mold. SERVPRO technicians scope the property with advanced moisture-detection equipment before, during, and after to ensure the property is dry and odor-free. They also have numerous applications to eradicate odors at the molecular level if needed.
