Restoring Water Damage to this Eagle Rock Warehouse

The video opens to a scene no Eagle Rock business owner wants to happen, the aftermath of water damage in a warehouse. SERVPRO technicians have already extracted the water and performed flood cuts as seen along the walls removing a few feet of sheetrock from the concrete flooring upward.

Further panning by the camera shows several common actions during commercial water damage restoration in Eagle Rock structures such as containment, hand tools for water removal, and materials bagged for disposal that were ruined by water to the point they had zero restoration potential through the advanced cleaning methods used by SERVPRO. The technicians also covered pallets and crates with heavy gauge plastic to protect them from moisture, dust, and debris that gets kicked up during the water clean-up efforts within the warehouse. 

SERVPRO Practices Careful Water Damage Restoration in Eagle Rock 

As shown, SERVPRO technicians work in teams and wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect the technicians during the water clean-up in the Eagle Rock warehouse and allow them to work cleanly. The techs are seen wiping down the painted cinderblock walls by hand. SERVPRO technicians rely on their experience and training to use professional water removal equipment such as portable pumps and manual tools like mops and squeegee. 

Controlled Demo is a Common Part of Water Cleanup in Eagle Rock Properties

This warehouse had enough water enter that it migrated quickly throughout the interior and began wicking into the walls. Sheetrock pulls water upward rapidly, and the only way to halt the process is to cut the wet piece of the wall off above the waterline. SERVPRO technicians carefully use their moisture detection equipment to determine the true scale of the water absorption within the walls, so nothing gets left behind to cause secondary issues in the warehouse, such as musty odors or mold growth. The video shows multiple areas in this Eagle Rock warehouse that needed removal of the walls by SERVPRO as part of the water damage restoration. 

Professional Drying Equipment Used in the Eagle Rock Warehouse

The Eagle Rock warehouse had a significant amount of water within the worksite. After SERVPRO technicians performed the water removal services, they set up the drying equipment to ensure that the warehouse dried completely to reopen and get back to business as usual. The technicians typically rely on multiple air movers used in tandem with desiccant dehumidifiers to rapidly bring down the interior air moisture and force embedded water from the concrete slab floor and the other areas of the structure. The process gets carefully monitored until the preset drying goals get attained, and the warehouse can get considered dry before moving on to the last step of the restoration services. 

Getting the Eagle Rock Warehouse Prepped for Repairs

Due to the controlled demo needed in the Eagle Rock warehouse during water damage restoration services, SERVPRO technicians needed to get the structure ready for the water damage repairs needed such as hand cleaning surfaces affected by the water and creating a report for the property owner so they could choose to let SERVPRO handle the installation of sheetrock where needed.
