Standing Commercial Water Damage is the Problem in This Smithtown Office
This SERVPRO team arrived to find standing water on the commercial short-pile carpet in this Smithtown office. As seen in the video, the water affected the hallway and conference room. SERVPRO technicians methodically remove the water from the carpet using extraction wands using side-by-side passes, so the moisture that gets pulled up but not picked up by the wand moves to the side. Over and over, the SERVPRO technicians repeat this process until the water gets removed from the carpet in the hallway before moving on to the conference room. The video also shows another common extraction technique used by SERVPRO techs, passing the extraction wand over the same spot repeatedly to ensure the carpet fibers get left as dry as possible with the maximum amount of moisture removed. Another plus with this detailed type of water removal service is that it lessens the potential for seepage into the baseboards and wall beside the wet carpet in the Smithtown office hallway.
Drying the Smithtown Office After Water Removal Services
The video shows a SERVPRO technician performing water removal in the hallway. There is still standing water visible in the adjacent conference room. SERVPRO techs can place it up on blocks to allow for water extraction around the legs and to dry it in place to limit the amount of disruption to the office and avoid moving out the large conference room table. Furnishings such as smaller end tables and the conference room chairs will get relocated to another area within the Smithtown office to ensure they do not incur damage from exposure to the moisture during the water restoration services.
Professional Equipment Makes a Difference in Commercial Water Cleanup in Smithtown Properties
The regular janitorial service may have a wet/dry vac on hand for spills, but it cannot handle the amount of water damage in this Smithtown office. SERVPRO technicians have professional extraction equipment that allows them to quickly and easily maneuver throughout the facility and get the water up and out of the structure.
Drying equipment is another perk of using a professional water damage remediation company such as SERVPRO. The technicians do more than remove water and set up fans to dry the hallway and conference room. SERVPRO technicians have access to specific equipment for delivering the maximum drying capabilities, such as air movers, thermal energy systems with direct heat drying, and axial fans, to name just a few.
Preparing the Smithtown Office for Reopening After Water Restoration Services
Removing the water and drying the wet areas is just one part of the water damage remediation services that SERVPRO provides to Smithtown properties. Once the hallway and conference room verify as attaining the drying goals pre-set by SERVPRO techs, they move toward the final phase of the restoration and clean all the surfaces affected by the water using specially formulated cleaning agents, including biocides antimicrobial solutions to inhibit mold growth. This ensures that the Smithtown employees return to their desks and conference room without a hint of water damage.
