Flooding in your Plainview commercial establishment is both disruptive and detrimental to your bottom line. As much as you put protection in place to preserve inventory and minimize the risk of damage, Mother Nature can wreak havoc on your business with virtually no warning. The steps to take following the incident can make the difference between a complete loss and continuing business as usual.

Business owners in Plainview who face flood damage should call our SERVPRO staff to help them chart an efficient path to restoration. When water is seeping into your walls, floors, fixtures, and equipment, time is of the essence. When you call our 24/7 hotline, you access a team of water restoration technicians (WRT) certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the certifying body in our industry. Our goal, like yours, is to restore and repair while mitigating your loss.

What are the steps to proper restoration?

Safety is the priority for our SERVPRO team, and for you, which is why we make sure entering the property is safe before beginning the process. Your local power company can help you assess whether there are any concerns about water compromising the electrical system. If it's safe to enter, you might consider retrieving any documents pertinent to insurance or irreplaceable value. Once our crew arrives, we help you remove any items beyond being salvaged and take precautions to preserve those we can restore. We document our process, which can help you file an insurance claim and communicate with other pertinent authorities. The main steps to bringing your business to its prior condition include-

Water extraction with pumps, air circulators, and dehumidifiers

Sanitizing with antimicrobial solutions

Deodorizing with foggers, odor counteracting pellets, and air scrubbers

A systematic approach to restoration can decrease the time in which your business is not fully operational, thus preserving your revenue. Our team at SERVPRO of Hicksville/Plainview is your business partner when disaster strikes. Call us at (516) 733-1800 and let us leave your place "Like it never even happened."
