Commercial The Importance of Promptly Seeking Water Removal Services For Your Atlanta Bookstore Keep Your Atlanta Bookstore Open for Readers After Water Damage by Calling SERVPRO

SERVPRO Moves Quickly to Mitigate Damages Caused by Water and Moisture

Your Atlanta bookstore might be a well-established facility for all of the readers and researchers in your area, but that same foot traffic is what pays the bills and keeps your business in the black. When disaster strikes your building and leaves high volumes of water on the floors throughout your business, professional restoration is one of the best solutions to get your doors open again to that critical customer base more expediently.
 
When your Atlanta bookstore requires water removal services along with restoration efforts, there is typically quite a lot on the line to getting the issue resolved promptly. No matter which area of your shop takes the brunt of the water damage, there are constant considerations you have to concern yourself with as the owner. The amount of time that your shop has to remain closed for restoration, damage to your books and other stock, time off for employees that count on a paycheck, and also the threat of costly substantial structural damages, all matter.
 
When our SERVPRO technicians reach your storefront, it is critical for our team to look at the full scope of the damage, as we prepare for the extraction. Removing the water from the area is often a task for a combination of our equipment. With higher volumes of water to extract, the most efficient means of pulling the bulk out of the affected area is through one of the pump trucks in our fleet. Spot extractions follow suit after this, using both portable pumps and wet-vacs for small and inaccessible places.
 
Drying the area completely is a critical component of our restoration process. Our SERVPRO professionals utilize several different tools for this step as well, based on the severity and size of the dampened areas. For inaccessible areas that commonly remain damp following flooding or excessive water damage, our technicians utilize equipment like our Injectidry system to get inside of walls and dry them out entirely. Moisture reduction is crucial to prevent books from absorbing to dampness or degradation.
 
When your bookstore falls victim to a water emergency, time is often of the essence. Contact SERVPRO of West Atlanta / Downtown. Our experienced technicians are available 24/7 for any restoration need you might have. Call us today at (404) 835-0200.

Commercial Water Removal In Atlanta

Commercial Commercial Water Removal In Atlanta In a smaller business like this, there is a tendency to cut corners when it comes to commercial water removal in Atlanta.

Commercial Water Removal

The weather in Atlanta is OK now, but as most business owners know, most of their flooding and other water issues come from broken toilets or split water lines in the breakroom. Even in an innocuous setting like a dental office all of it should be handled by a professional service.

In a smaller business like this, there is a tendency to cut corners when it comes to commercial water removal in Atlanta. The thought is to spend money on a licensed plumber, but rent a shampoo machine and a water-vac from the nearest big box store to clean up the mess. At SERVPRO, we know from more than twenty years of experience that this is never a good idea.

Even the best rental equipment cannot match the commercial grade machines we bring to each task. We have qualified personnel trained to maintain our equipment on-site and have it ready every time we need it. If we do not have a needed piece of equipment on our shelves, we can get it from another franchise office in our nationwide network.

Take carpets as an example. A water-vac removes most of the water, and they may even feel dry to the touch, but there is always some moisture trapped inside. To thoroughly remove the water and dry them, SERVPRO technicians use pumps, water extraction wands, air movers, and dehumidifiers.

If the water is over two inches, we start with the pumps. Even in a large space with multiple offices, our pumps can finish the job in just a few hours. If it is under two inches, we begin with the extraction wands. Unlike a water-vac, we have multiple settings to adjust the speed and force used. Most of the wands also have a built-in heating element, so we can start to dry the carpets as we finish removing the water trapped inside.

Once we finish with the wands, there is still a small amount of moisture trapped between the carpet layers. Most commercial carpets are glued down, so we use air movers to send war, dry air over the surface. Without the right training to watch the temperature, these devices can soften the glue and cause the carpet to form bubbles. If the air movers are not even an option, we use dehumidifiers exclusively to draw moisture from the carpet and surrounding air to dry them.

Each type of business and building has its special requirements to remove water and reopen the doors to customers. If you need us, call SERVPRO of West Atlanta / Downtown at (404) 835-0200. We are here for you.
