Saving Your Charleston Office Building From Water Damage
SERVPRO Provides Water Removal and Cleanup for Charleston Businesses
Office buildings can easily be seen all throughout Charleston. With so much valuable and sensitive information contained in every one of these facilities, it is no wonder that many of them have state-of-the-art security systems and even guards to monitor nighttime activities. One thing that your security system cannot protect these files and valuable equipment from is water damage from an unexpected break, however.
Water damage to your Charleston office building does not have to be an overwhelming and traumatic event, so long as you already know whom to call and whom you trust to get the place back in order quickly. Our SERVPRO team has a long-standing history of restoring water damage in commercial properties, and we have the tools and experience to do the job efficiently and to do it right.
From the moment that our crew arrives on the scene, our assessment process begins. The objective here is to determine the source of the water damage and to keep this situation from getting worse. Once the source of the water has been repaired by us if minor, or stopped, restoration of the affected area can officially begin. Depending on the severity of the situation, water extraction efforts might be the first step in the plan. Typically for water that is not pooling heavily, portable pumps and wet-vacs suffice for water extraction.
Drying the area is the next step, as this completely removes all of the moisture and allows for a more thorough look at potential structural damages and areas in need of repair. Drying is typically done using a combination of air movers and dehumidification equipment. To ensure that all of the water has been dried out, thermal imagery might get employed to survey inside of walls and under flooring for wet spots. These are areas that cannot get seen with the naked eye, but leaving the moisture could later result in mold growth.
Our SERVPRO team commits itself to working quickly and thoroughly to mitigate your losses. From your out-of-pocket expenses or the time that your doors have to remain closed to the clients you serve for our restoration process to occur, our IICRC certified technicians work to make it as easy as possible for you.
If your office building has a water emergency, give SERVPRO of Downtown Charleston a call. Our rapid response team of certified restoration specialists can be reached anytime by calling (843) 577-2470.
