When Water Attacks Your Business, SERVPRO Is Here For You
Many situations can create a need for commercial water removal. For instance, when the water main outside the local bakery malfunctions. The highly pressured water can quickly surge into the building carrying along with it mud and debris. This can prevent normal foot traffic and baking from carrying on as usual. We are here to let you know how we deal with such events when they happen in La Porte.
Any La Porte-based bakery or retail shop needs water removal services when water and mud quickly enter the building. Our SERVPRO technicians can respond almost immediately and access the site. After that, we can come up with appropriate procedures to extract excess water from different parts of the building. Our goal is to quickly mitigate the muddy water flooding from damaging equipment and cooking appliances.
By using shovels, we can remove the mud and use water extraction procedures such as the use of submersible pumps to remove the excess water. If the bakery has soaked drywall, our SERVPRO technicians can remove a layer of the drywall – usually a few feet up – to expose the wall cavities for efficient drying. We can then place air movers and dehumidifiers within the building to enhance the drying process.
Since a bakery is an operation where food is prepared, our SERVPRO technicians eliminate conditions which may favor the growth of mold. Sacks of flour, sugar, condiments and such are very susceptible to absorption via high humidity, so we work extra hard and fast to extract water vapor from the kitchen area, the front counter area, and also any dining zone. We do that by ensuring the area is completely dry, and we apply disinfectants to deactivate the spores. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) adhere to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards to guarantee the safety of your customers.
