Flooded Commercial Buildings
Flooding in any building can cause issues. Commercial buildings add an extra layer of complications. After a flood, the water is not the only issue that can arise. Humidity levels rise as the water soaks into materials. Rising humidity levels can lead to mold growth as well as affecting documents and electrical equipment.
A busted pipe or busted water sprinkler head can cause hundreds of gallons of water to affect multiple levels and multiple rooms. It is important to know where shutoffs for the sprinkler systems and water supply are.
Removing standing water and placing fans and dehumidifiers over affected area can help reduce the chances for secondary damages. If water is to take over your place of business, contact your local SERVPRO immediately so they can help you restore your place of business as quick as possible.
