Commercial Water Damage Restoration Requires Proper Drying Techniques

Commercial water damage can take place by things like your building's roof leaking or one of your water pipes running to your restrooms bursting. Once moisture leaks from the outside, or your plumbing system, it will follow gravity and build up on your flooring materials first.

Once your carpets get wet, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. We know that restoring the commercial water damage inside your property promptly is essential to providing a pleasant atmosphere for your customers. When moisture starts to affect your carpets and other building materials inside your office after a leak, we can start the restoration process by extracting all of the moisture possible while it is still a liquid.

After our SERVPRO technicians extract as much liquid H2O as possible, we begin the applied structural drying or ASD phase. During this step in the mitigation procedures, we use air movers and dehumidifiers to create an environment that speeds up the natural evaporation and drying process. When setting up the drying equipment, we utilize proper placement techniques.

One rule when placing air movers and dehumidifiers is that the fans should never push air directly into the back of any of these machines that remove moisture from the air. Dehumidifiers dispense hot, dry air that the air movers can use to create effective air circulation during the ASD process. All fans should be placed so that the exhaust from the dehumidifiers are pointed directly at the air mover's intake.

Another drying technique commonly used in an office building with carpet is to "float" the flooring materials. During this technique, sections of the carpet get removed from the tack strip and peeled back so that air movers can push air underneath the carpets and dry the bottom of the flooring material as well as the subfloor.

Whenever we work on restoring your place of business, we try to find the best and most cost-effective methods to return your real estate office to its preloss state, “Like it never even happened.” When in need of a restoration contractor in your area, call SERVPRO of Marshfield/Rockland at 781-834-7707 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
