Controlling Water Damage in Hicksville
SERVPRO Can Perform Water Mitigation Services
Commercial properties can suffer from water intrusion issues from time to time. Usually, these issues directly result from overstressed plumbing and water drainage systems on the site. Unlike residential properties, commercial water intrusion can go unnoticed if it occurs out of hours, leading to stagnation, mold, or humidity problems. SERVPRO is here to help.
Performing water mitigation in Hicksville businesses requires expertise and training. All water sources contain microbes. These microbes -bacteria, viruses, and fungi- can proliferate in the right conditions, causing a contaminated water issue. In commercial restoration, there is a tiered system to categorize different levels of contamination: Clean, Gray, and Black Water. Clean water emergencies are generally the least damaging, while black water emergencies often contain biohazardous substances and require extensive restoration work. It is essential to understand that these categories are fluid, meaning there is a possibility of a clean water issue degrading into a black water issue over time. Our technicians are adept at dealing with:
- Water contamination
- Water restoration
- Water mitigation
We understand how temporary closures can affect businesses which is why our technicians have extensive experience restoring water intrusion issues. We begin with an inspection of the damages and considerations of the category of water contamination. Drying the property is the surest way of preventing water degradation. To achieve this, our team uses truck-mounted water extraction equipment to remove hundreds of gallons of moisture from carpeted and hard flooring. We may also deploy dehumidification equipment to prevent humidity issues leading to mold. Microbes thrive in 60 GPP humidity. Our refrigerant dehumidifiers can control the indoor humidity levels below 60 GPP to reduce the likelihood of secondary damages.
- Anti-microbial chemicals and biocides like bleach are commonly used in mitigation procedures to stop microbes from growing or destroying them altogether.
- Fast-drying solutions often require powerful equipment such as box venting fans, truck-mounted extractors, and rapid air moving equipment.
- In large commercial spaces, we can daisy chain equipment to run most from a single power source.
