Brooklyn Entrepreneurs Trust SERVPRO with Water Damage Restoration 

Water damage can lead to significant business interruptions, resulting in lost revenue, customer dissatisfaction, and damage to the business's reputation. Thankfully, professional restorers like SERVPRO can help in the water damage restoration of your Brooklyn commercial space. 

One of the main advantages of hiring professionals like SERVPRO for water damage restoration of your Brooklyn commercial property is the reduced downtime during the repair. Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment, our IICRC-certified technicians can accelerate the restoration process so you can keep serving your customers. 

Extracting Water During Commercial Flood Restoration 

Water extraction is crucial in restoring water damage to your commercial property. The more water SERVPRO techs can remove using extraction equipment, the less time they need to evaporate and dehumidify it with drying equipment. 

SERVPRO techs use several types of extracting equipment and tools to remove accumulated water. Some of the equipment we use include:

  • Extraction units: SERVPRO techs use portable and truck-mounted extraction units to remove standing water. While portable water extractors are flexible and can be taken to almost any area of the structure, truck-mounted extractors are very powerful. 
  • Light wands: It is appropriate for the initial water removal and extracting water from the glue-down carpet. It is also effective in removing residual water on the surface of carpets after a stationary tool has been used. 
  • Pumps: If large volumes of water need to be removed from a commercial building, SERVPRO techs often use different types of pumps. Our most common pumps include self-priming trash, submersible, and high-pressure pumps. 

Choosing the Right Pump

SERVPRO techs use various factors to determine which pump to use during water removal. Some of the factors we consider include the following:

  • The volume of water present
  • Height of the discharge head
  • Distance through which water needs to be transported
  • Availability of power

Commercial Water Mitigation Brooklyn is Faster with SERVPRO

Any business can sustain water damage, but those with increased risk are typically in high-rises in the health and hospitality services industries. Understanding the risks and safeguarding your interests with mitigation measures is crucial.

Performing prompt commercial water mitigation in your Brooklyn hotel is vital because you need to resume business operations. Canceling bookings can impact your revenue. SERVPRO can help you repair your hotel quickly to prevent revenue stream loss.

Water damage to a hotel property can cause issues like ruined flooring. Water can damage floors like tiles, vinyl, wood floors, and the subfloor beneath carpets. It is costly to replace such materials. Walls made of porous materials like drywall can also sustain damage. It may be necessary to repair or replace the bottom section of water-damaged drywall. SERVPRO provides water mitigation services for hotels consisting of all services required to restore them to pre-event condition, including the following:

  • Inspection and assessment 
  • Water extraction
  • Dry out 
  • Clean up 
  • Building repair 

SERVPRO’s inspection services involve using equipment like thermal imaging cameras to determine which areas have moisture. We can also determine which restoration procedures are necessary to repair the affected structures and contents.

Water extraction is an essential step in eliminating moisture from your property. We use extraction equipment like electric submersible pumps to remove water from floors. The more water we extract, the less time we spend evaporating and dehumidifying the remaining moisture with drying equipment.

Our SERVPRO team can dry your hotel fast to reduce moisture levels. We can use air movers to enhance evaporation at the surface level. Our technicians can also use powerful dehumidifiers to draw moisture from floors and walls to prevent structural problems, bacteria, or mold infestation.

The last step of water damage restoration is to rebuild or repair walls, floors, ceilings, or other affected areas. This can make your hotel appear as it did before the damage. 

You can count on SERVPRO of Mill Basin, Flatlands, for affordable and effective commercial water mitigation services. Call us at (718) 381-3271 to make the damage seem “Like it never even happened.” 

Expert Water Mitigation Helps Keep Brooklyn Businesses Productive

Office with water damage Let your local SERVPRO of Mill Basin, Flatlands professionals resolve your water damage problems.

Water Mitigation Dries up Soggy Carpet and More

A damp carpet doesn’t seem like that much of a problem until it’s in your Brooklyn office building. Our water mitigation team can help make things professional and neat again. Workers perform more efficiently when their environment contains fewer stressors, including slip and fall risks like wet, rumpled carpeting and slicked-up tile.

We help businesses by eliminating all these risky conditions with water mitigation services tailored to Brooklyn businesses of all kinds. We scale our services to office buildings, clinics, schools, restaurants, factories, and more. Our work helps protect your investment by eliminating the risk associated with the presence of water.

We take water mitigation seriously. Here are some ways that we help rid your property of water and excess humidity:

  • Stand-and-ride water extraction units that allow us to concentrate on high-traffic areas for maximum drying effect,
  • Air movers that bounce air against damp surfaces, allowing us to whisk moisture out and away, and
  • Moisture meters and other moisture detecting equipment help us find hidden moisture.

Extracting water from horizontal surfaces helps immensely, but we can never guarantee that prior removal of water means an area will remain dry. Water moves, and water also looks for dry locations. We also use extraction wands and weighted units to remove moisture when only a small area is affected, and the Injectidry system works wonderfully for wooden floors.

Our air movers look like huge fans, but they are much more. These units can provide us with readings of how high the humidity is of the air passing through them. We can force damp air outside your building when used with disposable plastic sheeting constructed into a tube.

Moisture meters and infrared cameras work to let us know if an area in your business contains dampness. The meters can tell us how damp, and the cameras can tell if temperatures are significantly cooler in inaccessible areas. These reduce the need for invasive and sometimes unnecessary visual inspection of sites that typically contain moisture in similar situations. 

SERVPRO of Mill Basin, Flatlands is always on standby to help with this or any other disaster that threatens to keep your employees from their peak performance. Call us at (718) 381-3271 for prompt service that you can count on to protect your investment.

Expert Water Mitigators Repair Business’ Interiors

Each day your Brooklyn business keeps its doors closed because a broken water line increases your losses. SERVPRO’s water mitigation team is always ready for such emergencies. Our rapid response, state-of-the-art machinery, and trained use of internationally accepted methods help local businesses continue operations and reduce the effects of unexpected crises.

Brooklyn water mitigation, when performed correctly, can save a business from succumbing to the effects of a water-related disaster. Our WRT (Water Damage Restoration) technician works with our ASD (Applied Structural Drying) technician to reduce waste while providing tailored services to local businesses. We want you to stay open, but if a closure is required, we want this to end as soon as possible.

We do everything possible to help you and your employees continue serving the public with both services and goods:

  • Move inventory from an area with water to a dry, unaffected area,
  • Work with certified electricians to ensure that any systems remain hazard-free, and
  • Repair the cause of the leak.

Once we finish these tasks, we then begin working on performing cutaways of any damaged and irrecoverable wall, floor, and ceiling materials. We do these, so repairing such locations require the least amount of drywall, cement, grout, tile, wood, and other components. 

Water mitigation of your business also requires inspection of your flooring. We want to minimize any curling, warping, peeling, or other changes that can worsen and become permanent. Our ASD technician ensures that drying takes place in a manner that eliminates or at least reduces costly damage. Damaged components in your business bring about costs in two ways – required repairs and the time involved in making those repairs. Drying that reduces damaged areas subsequently lowers the entire cost involved.

We want your business to look and feel “Like it never even happened.” You can call SERVPRO of Mill Basin at (718) 381-3271 for expert water mitigation services, day or night, year-round.
