Commercial Water Damage Experts In Glendale Discuss Move Out Reasons
SERVPRO Provides Required Services to Mitigate Water Damage in Commercial Settings
Sometimes a water leak inside your Glendale gift shop can be devastating. Especially if your business is located on the lower level of a multi-level building, water can saturate many items and materials inside your store. If a pipe breaks on a floor above your business, then water can pour in through the ceiling.
Water entering your shop from the ceiling can cause safety hazards such as falling down ceiling tiles or drywall. Before any work on commercial water damage in Glendale takes place, our SERVPRO technicians secure the area. Any potentials hazards are removed so that the area is safe for all occupants.
Water entering your gift shop from the ceiling can cause much damage if it pours down for a long time. Many items can get water damaged and need special attention. It is also possible that many of your products get wet and need to be dried out and possibly deodorized and disinfected.
In cases where water problems are severe, our SERVPRO technicians can move items out of your store to be dried in a different location. Sometimes if the building was affected by large amounts of moisture moving out items can speed up the drying process. Porous materials can hold moisture that keeps humidity levels up slowing down drying. When contents are moved out of the building, the drying equipment can dry out building materials at a faster rate.
The products then dry out faster when they are brought to a controlled environment. First, our SERVPRO restoration team takes inventory of all items that get moved out of your store. We then pack up all of your affected products and put them in labeled boxes before they get moved to an off-site location.
Then the items get unpacked at the drying location, typically our facility, and a checklist is kept to track the step each item has gone through. When drying out contents, all items get spread out on tables, and drying equipment gets set up in a controlled room. We use air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the evaporation process and reduce moisture levels of your products quickly.
If foul odors exist inside your affected gift shop products, then deodorization can occur at the same off-site location. To deodorize contents, we can set up an ozone generator inside a sealed room that gives of O3 molecules that oxides malodor particles neutralizing them. Usually, hand-held sprayers suffice in masking or neutralizing unwanted odors.
