You Need The Experts At SERVPRO If Your Sarasota Business Experiences A Water Damage Emergency
Professional Commercial Water Removal For Businesses In Sarasota
Sarasota’s location on our state’s west coast makes it an excellent place for residents and tourists. Shopping for, and sending out memories to family and friends is an important part of life for all of us. When flooding flows through area businesses, it affects shoppers and employees alike.
For a packing and shipping service, rapid, and efficient commercial water removal in Sarasota is essential to reopening their doors. SERVPRO restoration teams respond quickly to pump out standing water, reduce the humidity, and otherwise restore the facility to its pre-flooded, dry condition.
Water restoration technicians (WRTs) begin removal with commercial grade pumps. In a large facility, several inches of water can be hundreds of gallons. The pumps in our equipment inventory can remove that and more, often in a single day or less. If the power has been interrupted, team members can also bring in a generator to provide electricity for the duration of their efforts.
Pumps cannot remove all of the water, however. SERVPRO technicians next use extraction wands and other devices to draw surface water off floors and out of carpets. For concrete floors, WRTs follow-up with long-handled squeegees to push off any traces of water. Team members then spray a cleaning agent if needed, mop it up and allow the floor to dry.
If the flooding came from a broken inlet pipe or sprinkler system, then the water is considered clean, and the carpets can be dried and left in place. If the water came from outside the building, then it contains soil and other contaminants. Although a commercial-grade carpet has no pad, technicians cannot guarantee that it is safe for continued use even after cleaning it with a shampoo that contains an anti-bacterial chemical. The team leader always recommends removal and replacement.
Regardless of the source of the water, large amounts increase the humidity level inside the business. As technicians remove the water, other team members use dehumidifiers to draw the excess from the air and fans at the entrances and exits to force damp air outside.
For SERVPRO of South Sarasota, our goal is to return each business to a dry, clean, and comfortable environment for customers. If your business has had a water intrusion of any type, call us today at (941) 552-6319 to schedule a service call and begin the restoration process.
