Some Commercial Water Damage Restoration Mistakes in Metairie That You Should Avoid
The Right People to Call for Commercial Water Damage in Metairie
There is an old saying in business that 'everything that can go wrong will go wrong, the key is in how well you respond.' At SERVPRO, we have seen it all. From acts of God causing fires to plumbing that has not been replaced since the fifties. We have even seen what the inside of the Pentagon looks like! Being a successful business owner means having an answer to questions that have not been asked yet, even when that answer is as simple as knowing the right people to call.
We can respond quickly to commercial water damage in Metairie because we are local. Our team can be dispatched immediately after receiving your phone call to minimize the risk of permanent harm. We know that every hour spent in restoration is an hour lost in revenue so a project manager can be despatched alongside our team of trained technicians to lead the restoration effort.
The critical tools in removing excess water are extraction units, portable or truck-mounted, and industrial-grade wet/dry vacuums. Used in combination these are extremely quick and efficient in removing pooling water from carpets, floorboards, and tiles. For a more precise approach, we use extraction wands that deliver hot air into smaller crevices and reduce the chances of mold growth further down the line.
One of the methods SERVPRO uses for removing moisture is by evaporating it into the surrounding air. This method poses a secondary problem of high humidity levels which we counteract with dehumidifiers. Our team can assess and achieve the correct level of dryness by using a moisture meter to reduce the risk of secondary water damage.
The final step is to deodorize the affected area. Whether you work in a public service industry or an office, a clean, sanitized environment is crucial. For large-scale services, we use ozone generators which produce O3 gas which permanently alters the surrounding atmosphere. In smaller areas, we use chemical based foggers which help to neutralize lingering odors. Once a job is complete, a SERVPRO project manager can conduct a walkthrough with you to show you the work done and the outcomes achieved.
When the unexpected happens, knowing the right phone number can turn a full-blown disaster into a minor inconvenience. Call SERVPRO of Metairie at (504) 496-0193 for expert commercial cleanup services.
