Commercial Water Removal Procedures In Dallas
Commercial Water Removal Procedures
If a pipe breaks on the second floor of a building, your lower level clothing store in Dallas can receive excessive damage to your products and building materials. Water that pours into your shop from the ceiling down can ruin many different materials. The ceiling first retains water then it can flow down the walls to the floor.
Moisture inside the ceiling cavity can cause potential safety hazards. Whenever starting commercial water removal in Dallas, the first step is to secure the work area. Any drywall that is weak and has a possibility of falling gets removed. In many cases, the power gets shut off, and any electrical hazards get repaired.
After the work area is deemed safe for all workers and customers, the extraction and drying process begins. To start, our SERVPRO technicians formulate a work plan that removes water as quickly as possible. We structure our initial plan of attack so that we can complete the mitigation procedures while your business keeps operating.
If moisture stays inside your store for too long secondary damage can take place. Moisture can ruin the structural integrity of materials over time causing them to need replacement. If moisture stays inside organic materials for longer than 48 hours mold growth can occur.
Sometimes after water has been extracted and dried out, foul odors still exist. When some materials get wet, they put off pungent, mildew-like odors. After all, moisture gets removed the final step is to clean and deodorize your clothing store.
In a clothing shop, many of your products are made out of fabric which is a porous material that can hold in foul odors. If the smell is present throughout the building, there is a good chance your products are affected. If your inventory is creating unpleasant aromas, there are some steps we can take to remove the smells.
In some scenarios, an ultra-low volume fogger gets used to remove odors. A wet fogger breaks chemicals down to microscopic particles that penetrate into porous materials. The chemicals then pair with particles neutralizing the foul aromas.
In other cases, an ozone machine works to remove mildew-like odors. The ozone machine sends out O3 particles that oxidize odor particles, neutralizes the aromas they put off.
