Remediating Commercial Flood Damage in Carson City
SERVPRO Has the Manpower to Handle Your Commercial Flooding Disaster
Flooding in business is usually the result of damaged plumbing or a sprinkler system going off. This situation is bad enough in a private home but spread the damage across ten floors, and 200 rooms and the restoration costs start to look like the purchase price of a mini-mansion.
Eliminating the effects of commercial flood damage in a Carson City hotel can take several days or weeks, depending on the amount of water on the floor and what is in it. With more than 20 years experience in the restoration business, SERVPRO knows that replacing carpets is one of the most common, and expensive, costs.
In most cases, the room and hallway carpets get soaked, but the water levels are not more than an inch. Our technicians can move in with water extraction wands to draw out the bulk of the water and remove it from the building within a day or two for each floor of the hotel.
With removal accomplished, we begin the process of drying the carpet. This procedure is needed to prevent the fibers from rotting, mold forming, and to stop delamination, which is the process where carpet fibers separate from the carpet backing. We use a combination of air movers and exhaust fans to direct warm, dry air across the carpet surface and force the damp air out of the rooms, down the hallways and into the stairwells where we can vent it outside. Our technicians prop open the fire exits to assist venting the air if weather permits.
Since commercial grade carpets normally do not have a pad underneath, there is rarely need to pull them up. However, if they were underwater for more than a day before we arrive, it may be necessary to carefully pull up both an entry and an exit point to force air underneath. It speeds the drying process and is particularly useful if delamination is a concern.
At SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe, we understand that each day lost to flooding means a loss of thousands of dollars.
