Restoring Water Loss in a Hicksville Department Store

It has been said that you cannot plan for accidents, but that does not mean that you cannot have a plan in place to know what to do when disasters strike your Hicksville department store. Even without putting the stock and inventory at risk, a water loss incident coming from the employee restroom can become a situation that must get quickly contained. Aging fixtures can break or get mishandled, causing a scenario where substantial water loss occurs until the maintenance team can shut down the supply valve to the bathroom.

Though you do not have the bulk of available merchandise in this back area where employees take breaks and convene, water removal in your Hicksville department store must begin immediately to reduce costly and irreparable damages. Our professionals have a fast response to these emergencies, which can work to allow your employees to get back to using this private bathroom and break area as promptly as possible.

One of the advantages of the traditional building materials of the warehouse portion of your department store is that the floors are typically finished concrete. As this material has a severely low porosity, clearing up even standing water on this surface should not be challenging with the appropriate extraction tools like wet-vacs.

Directly exposed materials like the furniture in the breakroom, the vanity in the employee restroom, drywall, and wood trim all can become too saturated to save. Depending on the length of time submerged in water or directly exposed, drying out specific elements can become impossible once warping and distortion have started. We have a crew of licensed general contractors that can work alongside our water restoration professionals to repair the plumbing but also oversee and perform controlled demolition of overly damaged structural elements.

It is our business to keep you in business. Though this loss incident might only affect your employee area in the back of the store, it is essential to address it quickly and thoroughly. Give our SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview team a call at (516) 733-1800.
