Commercial Water Damage In Advance

A Leak in a Utility Closet Causes Commercial Water Damage in Advance Office

Even with regular inspections and security equipment expansions in place to catch early warning signs of fire and commercial water damage, the possibility of it occurring remains. Although break rooms and restrooms are the prime areas for water loss events that strike a business property, anywhere there are pipes, there can be leaks.

A local Advance business owner with commercial water damage found himself looking at about half an inch of water on the flooring throughout his office when the supply line to a sink in the janitorial closet busted. Although the owner had an environmentally enhanced monitoring system, a large amount of water spilled before the detection systems got triggered, automatically shutting off the water to the building.

Rapid Arrival with Fast Start Water Cleanup
The first call the business owner made was to SERVPRO, and techs arrived on-site quickly with their service vans stocked with everything needed to clean up the water loss situation. Because some electrical outlets were on the floor, the electricity got shut off for safety reasons, and the techs powered their extraction equipment with generators.

Equipment Move Out
The business owner had concerns about his server room located next to the janitorial utility closet where the water loss originated. SERVPRO techs moved out the computer equipment to inhibit any secondary damages from exposure to the elevated moisture and per the request of the property owner, arranged for an industry professional to inspect the equipment before reinstallation and reuse.

Controlled Demo is a Standard Part of Water Loss Restoration
When water comes into contact with sheetrock, it wicks readily and travels upward through the core. There is a very short window to dry it before it weakens, buckles, and deteriorates. SERVPRO techs can ascertain what stage the sheetrock is at and, if necessary, halt any further damage through the use of flood cuts. They are licensing as general contractors #NC 26671 and can extend the restoration services to reconstruction to make repairs as needed.

SERVPRO of Davie & Yadkin Counties at (336) 677-1415 restores and repairs properties with commercial water damage and makes the loss, “Like it never even happened.”
