Water Removal Operations for Commercial Facilities In Dallas

Water floods into every business in Dallas at some time. Usually, the source is a simple plumbing failure or a triggered sprinkler. A professional restoration service can find the source, often repair it, and quickly remove the floodwater so the business owner can get back to her customers.  

For a Dallas business that centers around kids, commercial water removal can be more complicated. With an indoor playground, SERVPRO restoration teams not only have to get everything dry, but we also need to examine each surface the water covered for any trace of mold or bacteria, especially if the water entered the facility from outside, through the doors or other entry points. If there is a bacteria or fungal threat, we spray the entire area before starting removal operations.  

If it is a plumbing issue, finding and shutting down the leak is often simple. In a commercial operation like this one, a broken sink or a backed-up toilet is usually the issue. Our personnel can repair these and other minor problems. For a major break or failure, our team leaders recommend the business owner bring in a licensed plumber.  

Now, our teams can start drying out the playground. For water about ankle-deep or higher, they start with an industrial water pump. These devices can draw out massive amounts of water so that SERVPRO technicians can empty a large floor area in just a day or two.  

When the water level is lower, team members use extraction wands to draw the water off floors and carpets. Technicians can adjust the vacuum speed to match the floor or carpet, and our models also have an adjustable temperature setting. It is very useful to begin drying carpets without accidentally softening the glue that holds them in place.  

Excess water can also raise the humidity to uncomfortable levels, especially for children. Our teams install one or more dehumidifiers to remove water from the air and lower levels back to normal. Each device can draw out up to 25 gallons of water every 24 hours.  

If you have any standing water in your business, call us today at SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County at (972) 227-0800. We are here to help you return your facility to its usual operation.
