Strategies to Remove Hidden Moisture Can Cause Temporary Disruption, but SERVPRO’s Rebuilding Division Steps in With Expert Water Damage Repair in Coral Springs

A common complication of a plumbing leak in Coral Springs retail property is coping with the water that collects in building cavities as it migrates away from the source. Out of sight cannot be out of mind when water remains in any space of your commercial building. The water continues its corrosive destruction of structural components and can also set up the perfect environment for damaging mold growth.

How Is Hidden Water Located and Managed?

For the successful completion of water damage repair projects in Coral Springs commercial buildings often require some form of planned and controlled demolition. If you have never dealt with a severe water crisis before, this type of response can seem radical. Mid-implementation, you understandably wonder why these strategies are “go-tos” for professional restorers. Generally speaking, removing water is preferable to the extended and frankly ineffective drying options available if materials are not altered or removed to enhance mitigation. Here are examples of a controlled demolition, and the reasoning behind the actions:

  • Weep holes punched through bulges in ceilings and walls -- to release trapped water before a structure collapses
  • Cut or drilled holes behind baseboards or beadboard -- to drain water pooled near the bottom of a cavity between walls and allow airflow for drying
  • Removal of toe kicks under built-in cabinets -- to gain access to space under a fixture where water has collected for extraction and drying
  • Flood cuts -- drywall cut parallel to the floor several inches above the flood line to remove damaged building materials and open up cavities for extraction and drying
  • Injecti-dry equipment for positive or negative airflow into voids

SERVPRO Comes to the Rescue at Your Coral Springs Business to Help with Commercial Water Damage Restoration

If you have a large office building in Coral Springs and water damage has spread throughout several areas, the water loss is often substantial. A situation like this always calls for professional restoration efforts, which is when we spring into action at SERVPRO. Whether you have bathroom flooding or a burst pipe, these are not routine cleaning jobs. We are Faster to Any Size Disaster, and our crew comes with all the tools and extensive training necessary to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Will You Help with Water Removal as Well as Drying?

Your Coral Springs commercial water damage project comes with a tight timeframe before secondary damage sets in. Instead of trying to line up a range of contractors on your own to handle the cleanup, selecting one team that can do it all is the best route to take. We come with all the steps for:

  •   Packout services
  •   Water removal
  •   Drying
  •   Controlled Demolition
  •   Cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing

What Experience Do You Have?

Once you call us for water damage restoration, you can count on a skilled crew of technicians to arrive promptly so that the assessment may begin. Our team carries multiple certifications via the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). This prepares us to formulate a plan for mitigation while using best practices for remediation. Depending on your needs, we can scale our response to match the intensity and extent of the damage. 

What Do We Do Until You Arrive?

There are multiple things to keep in mind once a water loss event occurs. Some of the things that you should avoid until we arrive includes:

  •   Avoid power sources if there is any wiring or electrical outlets that may have been impacted by water. If possible, you can consult with your maintenance team about turning off the power. Should your office space be a lease, it is a good idea to contact the property owner as soon as possible.
  •   Try to avoid rudimentary drying methods with fans, as they may only circulate moisture droplets that can lead to secondary damage. Our team has industrial strength drying and dehumidifying equipment that removes moisture from the air while pulling it from surfaces.
  •   Never delay when faced with water damage. Doing so could lead to structural concerns or the onset of mold and mildew in as little as 48 hours. Prompt mitigation helps cut down on costly repairs and losses.

What About the Electronics in Our Office?

There are many critical factors when it comes to preserving the electronics throughout your office space after a water loss incident. Our team takes a look at several factors:

  •   Did water drip on your electronics? It is important to assess not only the exterior of all electronics but also the inside to determine if each piece can be dried and cleaned. 
  •   Was the electronic fully submerged? Items that have been underwater might not be salvageable due to circuit failure, heavy rust, or corrosion. We have content cleaning technicians that search for these signs while also taking note of the time and how much of the components were exposed. All items, salvageable or not, are removed and logged for insurance purposes.
  •   Has it been exposed to high humidity levels? The humidity in any office space after a water loss incident will increase dramatically. Electronics exposed to high humidity for any length of time is cause for concern. 

NOTE: Our team can dry the exterior electronics covers, but we do not open any devices that contain circuitry and transistors. Whenever your electronics have been subjected to moisture, we can send them to a reliable third party dedicated to their inspection, cleaning, drying, and repair. 

What is Secondary Damage?

Any moisture leftover after a water loss incident brings on the potential for secondary damage. After all of the water is removed from the space using extraction tools, pumps, and light wand extractors, our crew begins the moisture detection process. Water migrates using the path of least resistance to move onto drier spaces. We use moisture sensors and infrared technology to find hidden pockets of moisture so that nothing is left behind. When moisture is left to fester, it brings the potential for hazardous mold and mildew growth along with further damage to porous materials and structural components of the building. 

Cleaning and Deodorizing

It is essential to leave the interior of your office in the preloss condition. Our team uses a range of EPA-registered cleaning agents and disinfectants that ensures all surfaces are thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized. This not only ensures a clean result but also helps to inhibit the onset of odors.

Use of 1.6 mil polyethylene to build and negative pressure air scrubbers to seal the perimeter around where our crews clean and deodorize permits other areas of your property to operate as usual.

A coffee and donut shop counter with employees behind the counter. Water damage to your business can be a lot to deal with in general. Let us help ease your mind, and get you back in business.

Your Coral Springs Coffee Shop will want to have SERVPRO there for the restoration.

You rely on the loyalty of your patrons to keep your Coral Springs coffee shop going. From the early morning hours through the late evening, you can expect a steady flow of traffic in the shop, many of which take a seat and appreciate the internet you provide to get some work done away from their stuffy offices. Meeting these demands of your customers can help to set you apart from the competition, and that includes the way that you handle disasters inside of the building. 

Water damage to your Coral Springs coffee shop can quickly compromise the entire structure when left inadequately addressed. When fixtures in the coffee prep areas break or begin leaking, all of the particle board structural elements can become susceptible to damages. With a porous cabinet and shelving material like particle board covered in a veneer, you have a limited time before water and moisture penetrate the surface and begin changing the composition of the material. 

As water restoration professionals with extensive training and education through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), our SERVPRO team can utilize advanced equipment and technologies to begin drying out your coffee shop as soon as we arrive. We can use light wands and squeegee wands attached to wet vacuums to remove excess water from the surface of flooring to help maximize the efficiency and success of positioned air movers and dehumidification tools. 

If areas like the cabinetry and tables in this preparation area become too severely affected by moisture exposure to get dried and restored, we have a team of reconstruction specialists to help. Our licensed (#CBC1261730) general contractors can remove the damaged cabinetry, counters, and shelving when necessary, but we work to restore the damage first to reduce any limitations on your business. 

We can work quickly after hours to get you back in business. With our efficient drying and extraction solutions, we can gain control of water loss incidents quickly to make these disasters “Like it never even happened.” Give our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team a call today at (954) 973-4130.

Fast Extraction for Your Coral Springs New Construction Project

New construction projects for plaza businesses happen in phases, and once water services get connected to the new Coral Springs structure, it begins being susceptible to damages. Among the biggest conceivable threats to new construction projects are the individuals that want to sabotage construction progress or cause property damage by sneaking on to the job site after hours. Turning on faucets and valves can flood areas of the new building.  

As you might expect, one of the priorities after the discovery of this damage is to secure water removal for the Coral Springs job site as quickly as you can. The first 48 hours after a water loss incident are the most critical, as the right response and drying of the damage can reduce the likelihood of microbial threats, structural deterioration, or the need for controlled demolition and build back of the already newly installed materials.

Depending on the severity of the water damage, our SERVPRO team has multiple options for extraction. With several inches or even feet of standing clean water, the use of portable sump pumps, trash pumps, and even our truck-mount extractors can all help with continual and high-efficiency removals. Our fast extraction of the standing water can lead to our light wand usage for the final touches on water removal, and ultimately rapid drying efforts.

We have a licensed team of commercial contractors (#CBC1261730) that can help with the removal of overly saturated plywood, drywall, and wood framing. While you might already have a construction team on-site for build back and continued development of the property, our professionals can help as needed and also install temporary fencing in areas where it is lacking to discourage intruders from making their way onto the job site again in the future.

Because of how an incident like this can set back your deadlines, our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team can work around the clock to get you back on schedule. Give our team of professionals a call 24/7 at (954) 973-4130 to make water losses “Like it never even happened.”

Professional Water Damage Cleanup is a Must for a Coral Springs Businesses

9/10/2019 (Permalink)

Mold and water spots on the ceiling of a building. Our SERVPRO technicians know what to do for your Coral Springs water damage.

Your Coral Springs business needs our technicians for water damage.

Many Coral Springs businesses lean on their in-house cleaning staff to manage water losses. Since the personnel is already in place, it seems sensible to shift to them the burden of cleanup. This strategy often results in unintended consequences, including a failure to remove the water entirely and quickly enough to avoid secondary damage because of their limited training and experience in water mitigation and remediation. Mold growth and progressive damage to structural components and contents are potential outcomes.

Water Removal and Structural Drying Have Specific Protocols

When water damages your Coral Springs office building after a plumbing leak, experts with rigorous training in the science of its thorough removal and efficient drying must respond. Our crew members master a comprehensive course developed by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and have extensive on the job experience before arriving to help at your site. Our investment in state of the art water removal and structural drying equipment supports our team’s efforts to your benefit.

Advanced Tools and Techniques Monitor Water Migration

If the water in your office suite remained in a contained space cleanup would be more straightforward and limited to water your eyes see. Instead, water migrates, spreading even after the source is discovered and shut down. During SERVPRO’s initial assessment of the water damage, our technicians use infrared cameras to locate water that seeped into and is now trapped in building cavities. We employ sensitive moisture detectors and hygrometers to help us plot a map of the full extent of moisture saturation. 

Our Scalable Workforce Supports Speed

Commercial water damage remediation is a challenge because of the large spaces affected. SERVPRO has access to scalable resources to manage substantial water damage swiftly. If moisture lingers in your office space longer than 24 to 48 hours, mold grows, and building materials crumble, rust, and warp. We can deploy multiple crews and sufficient equipment to attend to your specific needs quickly and thoroughly.

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland is always preparing for significant commercial losses, unfazed by the square footage involved or severity of the damage. Call us at (954) 973-4130. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
