Some Ways to Effective Commercial Flood Damage Remediation in Sarasota
Sarasota Hotel Back to Business After Commercial Flood Damage
Businesses in this area of Florida joke that the trade-off for gorgeous, nearly year-round weather gets evened out through the intense Gulf and Atlantic hurricanes and tropical storms moving across the state, leaving behind commercial flood damage. Unless professional cleanup happens to restore the property entirely, it can wind up closing a business down.
A Sarasota hotel with commercial flood damage is no joke and needs quick mitigation as it relies on bookings and visits to sustain the business. As one of their first actions on-site, SERVPRO technicians concentrate on safety for all and set up caution tape and signage around the loss area to help prevent slip and fall accidents on wet flooring.
Small Amounts of Water Leave Big Damage
Water extraction happens quickly, and the technicians choose the right attachments for each type of surface. Squeegees make short work of water removal on tile and laminate flooring while weighted extractor heads push water out of carpeting and padding. The technicians cut away sheetrock to dry the wall cavities and ensure the interior spaces are dry. Air movers used in tandem with dehumidification equipment dry the property rapidly so technicians can move on to disinfection and prepping the loss area for repairs.
Depending on the Water Type, Carpet May Not Be a Loss
Storms tend to deliver water loss to properties in two main ways. The first is through high winds, causing damage that allows rain into the structure. The second way that causes far more damage is through groundwater. This type of water loss is a category three biohazard, and anything it saturates (including carpet) requires disposal.
Construction Materials Determine Restorability of Furnishings
For ease of cleaning and replacement, a majority of hotels use furnishings constructed from composite wood. This is great for their bottom line, not so great with water exposure. When composite wood absorbs moisture, it tends to swell and fall apart. Solid wood furnishings fare better depending on the length of exposure and type of water.
