Commercial Water Damage Restoration Tactics in Norwich
SERVPRO Can Provide Commercial Water Mitigation Services in Norwich
Water pipes can freeze and break when the weather gets cold during the winter. Office complexes are at risk when temperatures drop because many are closed and unoccupied at night. When it gets cold after hours, the water supply lines inside your office complex could freeze and break. And since nobody is around at this time, your office could get flooded for several hours until someone notices the issue.
When handling commercial water damage in Norwich, our SERVPRO technicians know that prompt service is essential to reduce and eliminate secondary issues. Secondary problems arise when building materials and contents inside your office are damaged when they do not come in contact with moisture. For example, elevated relative humidity levels can cause drywall or ceiling to bubble. If wet organic items inside your office stay wet for more than two days, mold can develop.
Ways we can reduce secondary damage:
Water extraction procedures:
- Applied structural drying (ASD)
- Setting up desiccant dehumidifiers to dry out wet concrete
- Applying antimicrobial chemicals to places where mold has developed
- Setting up an air scrubber in the contaminated areas
Whenever your place of business gets affected by a disaster like a pipe burst, we know that loss of business can become a huge issue. Sometimes, we can conduct our restoration procedures when your office is closed. In other cases, we can restore your damaged office in sections so your employees can keep your business running as usual. If the issues are severe, we can dry out your contents separately from your building materials to speed up the process.
Before we complete the project, we can use moisture sensors and meters to ensure that the moisture levels of your structural components and contents have dropped back to normal levels.
If the pipes inside your office complex ever freeze and break in the middle of the night, call SERVPRO of Norwich and Windham County at (860) 887-0447.
