Fixing Commercial Flood Damage in Smithtown
SERVPRO Assists with Flood Restoration in Smithtown
Any time it rains nearly every day during the summer, the chances of flooding increase. When an area receives rainfall consistently, the ground can get saturated and unable to soak up any more moisture. And then, when another big rainstorm strikes the same region, flooding can quickly occur as the ground is already saturated. If your construction shop sits on a slight decline from the main road or on the bottom of a small hill, the moisture could flow directly into your building.
Whenever our SERVPRO technicians restore commercial flood damage in Smithtown, we start by figuring out where the water came from and how it entered your structure. For example, suppose there were flooding conditions in your neighborhood, and the water flowed downhill into your shop. In that case, water could enter from lower bay door seals or enter your building from the ground. Since the moisture from the outdoors could be contaminated, we can remove all porous materials that got wet, including your carpet and pad.
Suppose the water is deep on your construction shop's concrete floors. In that case, we can use a submersible pump to pull the water out and put it into one of your sewage drains in areas over a couple of inches of standing water. After extracting any H2O in liquid and removing any damaged carpet and pad, we can begin the applied structural drying (ASD) process by setting up air movers and dehumidifiers. If water is soaked into your concrete floors, we can use a desiccant dehumidifier to remove the moisture.
We can also offer the following services after your business suffers from a flood:
- Content and Structural Cleaning
- Water Damage Debris Removal
- Water and Sewage Cleanups
- Black Mold Inspections
