Commercial Water Damage Abatement After Drainage Backups In Your Dallas Retail Space Even cleaner water must be removed quickly as microbial growth contaminates the moisture and your wet inventory or other articles within 48 hours.

Water Damage Abatement


It is difficult enough to manage your plumbing issues, but when you share space and roof drainage system and a sewer link up with other retailers, their problems become yours. A roof drain or sewer backup in a neighboring business easily sends potentially contaminated water into the storage areas of your business as well. If you own the building, it is your responsibility to mitigate the plumbing or drain issue and perhaps restore the water damage. If you rent the space, you still need the professionals from SERVPRO to restore the damage once the drain flows freely again.

Coping with water damage within your Dallas retail store is particularly concerning if the source of the water is a sewer backup. Sewage has a high probability of containing infectious waste. Any inventory, fixtures, or furnishings that come in contact with this contaminated water need to be discarded. If the water instead entered because of a flat roof drain back up the water may be less hazardous. Our technicians have training in evaluating the quality of the water damaging your retail space.

Regardless of the source of the water damage, it is crucial to locate where the water is entering and to determine whether soaked items are safe to clean and restore. SERVPRO staff consults with the project manager or supervisor assigned to your job before giving you a final recommendation on what steps need to be taken to return your retail storage area and contents to preloss condition. Even cleaner water must be removed quickly as microbial growth contaminates the moisture and your wet inventory or other articles within 48 hours.

Plan for water damage mitigation in your retail space by developing an Emergency Ready Plan, beginning with an inspection by one of our staff. We point out problem areas in your store and storage area at no charge. Then you download our mobile app and answer a series of questions that identify your trusted staff and outline your priorities in the event water damages your business.

SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County is ready to attend to your commercial water damage needs. Call us at (972) 227-0800 after water infiltrates, or, better yet, contact us before a problem occurs to plan for any disaster.
