Water in Commercial Buildings

Work Place Water Damage is Restored by SERVPRO

Water damage in commercial buildings is a surprisingly frequent occurrence. Some of the most common causes of water damage to commercial buildings are as follows:
 
1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems
Sprinkler systems work in concert with fire protection systems. While sprinklers are crucial during a fire emergency, they can also cause significant flood damage if they malfunction.

2. Damaged appliances and equipment
If your business has any type of equipment which uses water, you may be at risk for water damage. When appliances fails, water will travel unimpeded around your building. If this happens outside your regular business hours, you could have a substantial amount of water by the time you reopen.
 
3. Broken pipes and plumbing
Plumbing in a commercial building is used far more frequently than residential systems. This extra stress can cause the system to fail much sooner than private systems.
 
4. Backed up sewer lines
Commercial sewer line are susceptible to back ups just like residential lines. Should the sewer line to your building back up, realize there are potential dangers in the water coming into your space. Regardless of the color and clarity of the water, any water coming through the sewer line is dirty and is a biohazard.

SERVPRO of Dearborn has specially trained staff and industrial equipment to clean, sanitizer and deodorize any water damage in your commercial building of any size. We are always here to help.

Flooding in a Commercial building

Commercial Flooding in a Commercial building Hotels are just one examples of business which cannot close even during an emergency.

Trust SERVPRO of Dearborn to Get Your Business Open After Flooding

A water loss in a commercial building cannot wait for clean up. Fortunately, SERVPRO of Dearborn has the equipment, training and experience to eliminate the effects of any plumbing failure and keep the doors open.

Commercial carpets are typically much easier to dry that residential carpet as they do not have a pad underneath and rest on a concrete floor. Also the service areas tend to be larger and more accessible. These factors make drying less complicated than a residential water loss. Although each case is unique, the typical process is as follows...

SERVPRO of Dearborn technicians use extraction wands to remove water from the floor. Depending on the size of the area, we use either hand-held wands, similar to wet/dry vacuum found in most home workshops or a much larger device a team member stands on to drive across the room. We can extract several large rooms in just a matter of hours. 

Technicians then set up dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air. They also strategically place units to draw out water absorbed into the walls. Each of our machines can remove over 25 gallons per day.
 
To aid the dehumidifiers, we set up fans to draw in warm, dry air replacing the cold, damp air. To dry the structure, technicians install air movers which blow heated air into walls and ceilings to expedite drying.
 
Flooding does not mean shutting down a business for weeks or even days. SERVPRO of Dearborn can help you reopen your doors quickly. If you need our services, call today at (313) 359-4357.
