Highland Park's Commercial Water Damage Drying Techniques
Rely on SERVPRO for Expert Commercial Water Damage Restoration
Sometimes a pipe breaks inside your Highland Park office complex and water floods out the building. Many office complexes are two stories, which can create more problems in an emergency damage situation. Water always follows gravity so if a pipe breaks on any floor besides the ground level, then it will flow into other floors of the building.
When water comes into an office from the ceiling, a few possible hazards may exist. SERVPRO's commercial water damage technicians in Highland Park start every job with making sure the area is secure. Any hazards our crew finds get dealt with immediately so that everyone inside your office stays safe.
When water comes from the ceiling, sometimes drywall gets loose and falls from the ceiling. Other times water can get into light fixtures and cause a short creating an electrical hazard. Before any work begins, our crew will remove the hanging drywall and make sure nothing will fall from the ceiling onto anyone. If there are electrical hazards, we shut off the power to the room until a certified electrician can come in and repair the problem.
After the area is deemed safe for our workers and yours, we begin the extraction process. We try our best to complete our work in a way that keeps your company functioning as best as possible. We will work around office desks and work areas so that your team can keep busy while we work.
After we use our advanced extraction system to vacuum up all the water we can, we start the structural drying process. During the structural drying stage, we attempt to speed up the natural evaporation process so that moisture dries out within 48 hours. If building materials inside your office complex stay wet for longer than two days, it is possible that mold develops.
We always use industrially advanced moisture detection equipment to test progress and make sure everything is dry before we leave the job site. After our drying equipment has been set up for a couple of days, we make sure that moisture levels have returned to normal conditions before officially finishing the job.
