When Water Hits You Must Act Quick

12/30/2020 (Permalink)

Water can cause significant destruction in your Bronx office despite if it results from a broken HVAC system, malfunctioning fire sprinkler system or a burst pipe, among other reasons. When water hits you must act quick to minimize overall loss to your business such as destruction to office equipment, supplies, furniture, and documents.

Furthermore, commercial water damage in a Bronx office building can cause loss of income if you must shut down operations. The impact it can have on your business’ finances can create time-consuming tasks for some of your office personnel. Restoring an office after a water loss incident is a challenge. Using proper water removal strategies can restore salvageable items and spare the building from further destruction. The experts at SERVPRO of South Bronx can help you to manage the damage. Here are a few helpful tips to that can prevent further damage to your business:

  • Shut down the main water source immediately to stop any water flow from coming into the office.
  • Switch off electricity for areas of the office building which came into contact with any water.
  • Open doors and windows to boost air circulation.
  • Mop the wet areas, surfaces, and furniture to extract as much water as you can.
  • If there are damp paper documents, determine which ones are essential and which ones you can discard. Spread out the valuable documents in an appropriate location so they can dry.
  • Move computers, documents, and other equipment or materials that are not ruined, but are sensitive to moisture.

Water intrusion in any office building is a sensitive situation, and that’s why SERVPRO of South Bronx responds promptly to emergency calls 24/7/365.

We have specialized equipment to monitor like moisture meters and thermal cameras to detect moisture under floors and behind walls. If mitigation is not done correctly more serious problems can arise in the future such as mold which is everyone’s nightmare.

Our crew also uses dehumidifiers to eliminate any moisture from the air creating an effective drying atmosphere for affected areas.
