When a business receives water damage from a broken pipe or a leaky roof, safety needs to be a priority. SERVPRO technicians inspect the area that needs restoration and determine if there are any potential safety issues. Commonly seen problems after this type of event include:  

  • Danger from sagging ceilings falling on someone causing injury  
  • Potential for shock from water coming into contact with electrical outlets  
  • Slip and fall accidents on wet floors  

Can I Keep My Business Open During Commercial Water Damage Restoration Services?  

Upon arrival, the SERVPRO crew chief can scope the property and determine any safety issues that may prevent the company from remaining open during the commercial water damage cleanup in the Dallas business. Also, the type of water present can have a bearing on whether or not daily operations can continue. If the water gets tested and shows the presence of bacteria or sewage, it can be dangerous to come into contact with, and in cases like this, the property needs to close during the mitigation.  

Locating the water can lessen the number of structural elements that need to get removed during extraction and drying. If the advanced moisture detection equipment shows no seepage under the flooring, there is no reason to lift it, and the surface can get dried in place. In situations that require the removal of sagging sheetrock or a ruined portion of a wall, SERVPRO techs always remove the minimum amount necessary to make repairs fast and easy. This is just one of the many ways that the certified techs save property owners the cost of replacement whenever possible.

SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County at (972) 227-0800 is available 24/7 to assist local properties with any size commercial water damage restoration. The experienced techs arrive quickly and get your business back to normal as fast as possible.
