Don't let flood damage check into your motel! Call SERVPRO to remediate the damage.

Steps to Handling Commercial Flood Damage in Your Glendale Motel 

Your motel in Glendale can sustain flood damage following a major storm. It could lead to loss of items like electronics, appliances, furniture, artwork, and the possessions of your guests. The floodwater can also ruin different types of flooring, including hardwood floors, tiles, vinyl, carpeting, and the wood subfloor beneath the carpeting.   

Because of its porous surface, flood damage in your Glendale motel can also extend to the walls. It may be necessary to repair or replace the bottom section of the flood-damaged walls. The water may also ruin electrical wiring and cause fire and electrical hazards to staff and guests. Another problem linked to water damage is mold growth, which can affect the image and reputation of your motel and cause health risks.   

Flooding in one part of the motel can cause the closure of the entire property for safety and health concerns. Once floodwater enters a motel, it is vital to drain it and sanitize the building as soon as possible to keep the destruction from worsening. Before doing this, you should document the severity of the damage with photos and videos, including any landscaping issue like lost signage and debris. You can count on SERVPRO franchise professionals to help you clean up your motel and dry as well as sanitize the affected areas.   

Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) can identify the problem areas and develop an effective strategy to deal with the incident. We are equipped to handle disasters of every scale. We can assist you in restoring hallways, guest rooms, and meeting and conference areas to their preloss condition. We can isolate your work area so you can continue with operations whenever it is safe to do so and help you get back to full activities within a short time.   

We have sophisticated water extraction equipment like truck-mounted pumps that can extract up to 36,000 gallons per day. Air movement is also crucial when drying a water-damaged building. The air in flood-damaged rooms slows down evaporation because it is usually humid and damp. Our SERVPRO technicians can place air movers in the affected rooms to blow the damp air outside and bring in warm, dry air to increase evaporation. We change the location of air moving equipment as drying happens to promote even and thorough drying of surfaces. After the moisture evaporates, it is necessary to remove it using dehumidifiers.   

Flooding can leave you with ruined or undamaged contents like furniture which needs removing from contaminated and damp conditions. We offer pack-out services which involve taking restorable items to our facilities for cleaning, wipe and spray, immersion or foam cleaning, and other treatments. We provide secure storage for such things until it is time to return them to business premises. 

If floodwaters have entered your motel, call SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale at (323) 255-1000 for assistance. We have experienced personnel and the right equipment to handle your commercial loss efficiently, making it seem, “Like it never even happened.”
