Causes of Commercial Water Damage

11/16/2020 (Permalink)

Commercial Water Damage Flooded Office

Here are some common causes of commercial water damage:

DAMAGED WINDOWS

In commercial buildings, water damage is often caused by windows that are not properly sealed. Damaged windows can cause moisture to seep in, which triggers a lot of problems including mold build-up and warped wood and drywall. Resealing windows is important as caulk can break down over time.

DAMAGED PIPES

Broken pipes can stem from many reasons, such as changes in pressure, deteriorated water supply lines and sewer drains. Bulging walls, water stains on walls or floors, cracked or loose tiles, and musty smell – these are all signs of damaged pipes. Detecting leaky pipes is challenging and it usually requires specialized water leak detection equipment.

BUILDING FOUNDATION

If gutters are not cleaned regularly, they can get clogged, causing water to leak into the property through the roof or the foundation. One of the most common signs of leaks in building foundations are puddles nearby or framing that has become wet. Having poor drainage systems can also lead to water damage in your foundation.

ROOF LEAKS

A leaky roof can cause ceiling damage, mold or mildew issues, fires from shortened wires, and compromised structural integrity. Exposure to heavy rains make roofs vulnerable to damage. 

HVAC PROBLEMS

HVAC systems work by heating or cooling the air through a series of ducts. Over time, these ducts wear out and get damaged, resulting in leaks. The HVAC system should be cleaned and the excess water from the condensation reservoirs has to be removed to prevent water damage.

SEWER CLOGS

Sewer water contains bacteria and other pathogens that cause illnesses and infections. If you see signs of sewage damage, such as gurgling sounds or water backing up out of the drain or toilet, you should call water damage and restoration professional immediately.

SPRINKLER SYSTEM LEAKS

Other causes of water damage in commercial buildings are leaks in sprinkler systems. Signs of sprinkler leaks include wet surfaces like drywall and carpets, presence of mold, and standing water. Regularly inspect your sprinkler systems for leaks and moisture.

SERVPRO of Bartow/Lakeland Highlands and Highlands County are "Here to Help" 24/7.  Please call 863-510-5962 if you need assistance with your commercial property. 

Is the Exterior of Your Commercial Property Ready for a Storm?

11/1/2020 (Permalink)

Trim your trees Is your property ready for a storm?

Five Steps To Prepare the Exterior Of a Commercial Property For a Storm

Storms can cause extensive damage to the exterior of a commercial property. Depending on the level of commercial insurance coverage held by the building owner, there may be limits on the external portions of the property that are protected. Review your coverage, schedule a building inspection, and perform exterior maintenance on a regular basis.

Five steps that will help owners prepare the exterior of a commercial property for a storm.

1. Choose exterior doors rated for high wind speeds.

Exterior damage quickly becomes interior damage if a door fails. Exterior doors should be tested to stand up to wind loads and the frames should be anchored. Check to make sure these doors have appropriate drainage, flashing, sealant, and tracks. Door failure rapidly raises internal pressure and can cause structural damage.

2. Clear drainage systems.

Functional drainage systems prevent water from pooling on the roof or around the foundation of a structure. Clear roof drains, downspouts, and gutters several times a year as part of an exterior maintenance routine.

3. Trim trees.

Removing dead or loose branches from nearby trees can limit the extent of storm damage.

4. Secure loose items that may blow away or cause damage.

Don't forget about antennas on the roof or potted plants and trash cans on the ground.

5. Anchor outside HVAC equipment.

These components should be securely installed on a concrete pad. Depending on the severity of a storm, you may want to use hurricane straps or shut off these systems and cover equipment with a secured tarp.

These five exterior maintenance and storm preparation steps can help owners limit the extent of damage to the exterior of a commercial structure. Keeping your building maintained can pay off during adverse weather events. If the exterior or interior of a commercial property becomes damaged during a storm, contact us for help!

Our SERVPRO has the training, experience, and equipment to handle large commercial storm damage and can respond quickly.

Use Flood Damage Cleanup to Prevent Secondary Damage

6/28/2020 (Permalink)

Commercial Professional Cleaning Flood damage can accumulate when you least expect it. Contact the professionals at SERVPRO for all your remediation needs.

Flood Damage Remediation Does Not Have To Be Stressful For Your Sebring Home

Nobody ever looks up to find a house flooded, but flooding is a common occurrence. When floodwater enters your home, it can suffer serious damage and leave its mark in several ways. After a flood hits, you may find it necessary to rip up carpeting and tear down drywall.

Before starting the remediation efforts, make sure you take photos to document the flood damage in your Sebring residence and call your insurance agent to determine what your policy covers. Next, call a flood damage cleanup company like SERVPRO to assess the harm done to your home and begin the cleanup process.

The presence of water in a building helps microbes grow. Therefore, our cleanup process involves extracting the water and moisture. Our technicians use equipment like pumps to remove standing water and air movers to speed up evaporation. We then use dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture from the air.

The list of the potential damage that flooding can cause in a home seems endless, but our water damage restoration technicians can assist you to handle it. Anytime water enters a building, mold is likely to grow. It usually appears within 24 to 48 hours of water intrusion and poses health risks. We can inspect your property for visible signs of mold and use infrared cameras to detect hidden water sources.

If mold is present, we can use several containment procedures to prevent it from spreading. An example is using negative air chambers to separate the affected areas with negative air pressure and physical barriers to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. Our technicians also turn off the HVAC system to keep mold from spreading.

We also evaluate the contents exposed to high humidity or water for cleaning needs. If your wood furniture has been exposed to high humidity, our technicians can clean and polish it. We also check storage areas like closets for items that need to be cleaned or deodorized. Electronics may require special cleaning and drying services. We can work with a company that cleans sensitive equipment like pianos to restore them to their preloss state.

After your home has flooded, call SERVPRO of Highlands County to help you with the cleanup process. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. You can reach us at (863) 446-0258.

Commercial Water Damage Keep Your Commercial Building Open For Business With SERVPRO Experts

Keep Your Commercial Building Open For Business

Water damage can be caused by a number of factors, no matter how water damaged occurs it is typically unexpected. For example, water damage can be caused by a flood from a storm or a burst/leaky pipe. Then having water entering the property and collecting in the spaces between the walls or floors can cause mold growth. 

 
Commercial flooding in Sebring office suites where a variety of businesses and clinicians practice can suffer and become unsafe to place.

We can complete the work needed to mitigate the damage, top to bottom, and help get your tenants' businesses back to normal quickly, whenever possible.
 
Fast water extraction is an important part of mitigating damages to inventory, building materials, and capital investments. This includes drying things quickly and limiting other areas from experiencing the elevated humidity that can be caused by flooding. Enclosed spaces keep moisture from evaporating to the outdoors. To combat this problem Servpero experts set up several types of machines to solve the problem. This makes it easier to breathe and also prevents both secondary water damage and mold. 

 
One machine that is set up is an air mover, this keeps moisture from settling and condensing on surfaces. Desiccant machines extract the moisture from the air, as do our portable dehumidifiers. After pulling up flooded carpeting, we also use heated mats that force more rapid evaporation rates to occur, all while extracting trapped moisture under flooring materials. Injectidry tubing reaches into areas otherwise inaccessible and continually fills them with warm, dry air.
 
While we dry your building, many odor-causing particles can remain. That is why SERVPRO experts perform effective deodorizing techniques to prevent smells from causing issues with tenants.

Commercial Smoke Damage Restoration in Highlands

Grey rising smoke Commercial Smoke Damage in Sebring

Need help with Smoke Damage for your business in Highlands?

When a home or other building has been exposed to smoke, the smoke permeates every surface in the building. From upholstered furniture to dry wall, smoke will leave an odor everywhere. Smoke will find its way into spaces between walls, into attics and under counters. In addition to smoke odor being widespread, it is also difficult to clean. Unlike many other sources of odors, smoke cannot simply be wiped away by a surface cleaning. Smoke particles need to be removed when possible and neutralized by special cleaners when they cannot be totally removed. Smoke odor is not only unpleasant; it can even cause numerous health problems, especially to the very young, the elderly and those with respiratory issues. If a building has smoke damage, it is important the odor be removed. 

The difficulty of removing the odor from smoke damage is the primary reason that building owners should hire a professional remediation company, like SERVPRO, to deal with the smoke damage left behind by a fire. SERVPRO will know where to find the sources of smoke odors, the proper cleaning materials to use and the proper way to clean the building to remove the odors. When hiring a remediation company, it is important that the company is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration. The IICRC certification is the industry standard in the remediation business and provides building owners with the assurance that the remediation company has the knowledge and training needed to clean up the damage and to eliminate the odors. In addition to choosing a professional remediation company, remediation professionals will be able to make certain that the building is safe and will be able to get the job done quickly to help a building owner to be able to use the building as quickly as possible.

Commercial Flood Damage Technicians In Sebring Explain Problems With Metal Items

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

Let SERVPRO take on your commercial issues.

We can help you through the damage.

Storms have been rampant lately, and there is a chance that the Sebring region could get hit with severe weather this season. Flood damage can occur inside your welding shop quickly after a storm and perhaps without you noticing it right away. If moisture enters your structure, issues can take place right away and they can get worse the longer problems go unattended. Inside your welding shop, you most likely have several metallic items that can rust if not dried out promptly. If you ever notice that the contents inside your shop or storage area get wet after stormy weather, it is wise to call in a professional flood damage restoration company such as SERVPRO. 

Our water restoration technicians or WRTs know how to treat wet metal objects. When mitigating flood damage inside your Sebring welding shop, we know that restoring the contents of your business can be much cheaper than replacing a bunch of items. First off, our WRTs at SERVPRO attempt to extract all of the liquid water that we can so that the moisture does not increase the humidity levels inside your place of business. We know that raised relative humidity levels can cause secondary damage and could cause many of your metal contents to rust. Our crew extracts as much moisture as possible using heavy-duty extractors because it is much easier to remove water while it is in its liquid form.

Next, we utilize advanced drying equipment to remove all of the water that has evaporated into the air and soaked into your building materials and contents inside your shop. Our dehumidifiers and air movers can speed up the drying process and help you save metal items. Since many of your contents are non-porous, if they get affected by moisture, we can use desiccant dehumidifiers to dry out the metal, thus preventing rusting problems. If your metallic items do happen to get surface rust, then we can refinish them and restore them to their original condition. 

 If your welding shop ever gets negatively affected by a thunderstorm, call SERVPRO of Highlands County at (863) 446-0258 as soon as you notice any moisture-related issues.

Fast Extraction for Your Water-Damaged Sebring Restaurant

Disasters never strike your Sebring restaurant at a convenient time, but knowing what to do when you face a water loss incident can be the difference between an efficient restoration process and one that takes much longer to complete. As with all water damage situations, the biggest threat to your business is the saturation of construction materials and the degradation of these areas, so working quickly to get trained professionals to your restaurant is critical to preserving these surfaces and elements when possible.

Even with the staff that you have to keep restaurant looking nice, many commercial water removal scenarios in Sebring like this exceed the abilities and resources of your custodial staff. Also, inadequate drying and cleaning of these water loss incidents can allow for secondary effects like mold growth to occur, which can greatly extend the time that your business stays closed to the public as you meet the demands of inspectors and environmental testing.

Our SERVPRO professionals have equipment designed to remove water quickly from the affected areas of your restaurant. From our truck-mounted pumps for severe water pooling to our remote-controlled weighted extractors and extraction wands, we have the tools to get rid of this excess quickly to inspect the property for physical damages. We can utilize moisture detection equipment to determine the highest concentrations of moisture pockets to determine where drying efforts must begin to protect construction materials.

Much like our water removal equipment, we have drying machines that get tailored to specific situations as well. We can address moisture pockets in wall cavities, flooring, and ceiling areas with our injecti-dry system. We can float carpeting in dining areas after extraction with our air movers to eliminate moisture in both the carpets and subflooring simultaneously.

Whenever water loss disasters occur, you do not have the time to waste. Let our SERVPRO of Highlands County professionals remove the excess water and restore the damage to your restaurant quickly. Give us a call anytime that you need us at (863) 446-0258.

Here's How Our Fast Response Will Help Restore Your Water Damaged Commercial Property In Sebring

10/19/2018 (Permalink)

When there is a water spill in your workplace, call SERVPRO of Highlands County to help with removal.

Why Fast Action Is Necessary During Commercial Water Removal Sebring

You should take remedial action fast when your Sebring workplace floods. A quick response is necessary because the longer your business remains closed, the higher the likelihood of customers seeking services elsewhere. Again the longer it takes to remove standing water, the more damages it causes. Based on our experiences handling water removal cases, we can tell what kind of damage to expect based on the time lapsed.
 
Depending on the level of spillage, commercial water removal in Sebring might take from a few minutes to days, before the property is back to its preloss condition. In the early minutes after the spillage starts, the biggest worry is how to curb the water from spreading far. At this stage damages such as moisture-sensitive furniture finishes turning white are common. Furniture might also leach and stain carpets. A team from SERVPRO can help extract water or move the furniture to help reduce damage.
 
If it takes hours to pump the water out of the property, the damages become more severe. Any wooden or particleboard furniture such as cabinets begins to swell and delaminate. If non-colorfast materials such as draperies or upholstery are soaked from the spillages, the dyes might bleed. It is also at this stage odors become apparent. If this happens, our SERVPRO technicians not only need to move the items but, also ensure they create the right drying conditions to avoid further problems. For instance, we do not expose the affected furniture to direct sunshine because that would exacerbate the damages.
 
Removing water in severe spillage cases can take days. In such cases, it is possible for mold to develop in the affected areas. Paint blisters and wallpaper peeling off are other common problems. If there is a wooden floor, chances of salvaging it diminish by the day because of severe warping and cupping among other problems. Since water finds its way into spaces between floorboards, it might be necessary to remove the boards to remove all moisture. Our SERVPRO team using specialized equipment such as the injectidry system can dry such moisture without tearing down the floors.
 
When there is a water spill in your workplace, call SERVPRO of Highlands County to help with removal. You can reach us any time at (863) 446-0258. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
