Our Technicians Are Ready 24/7 To Restore Your Waynesboro Business After A Water Damage Disaster
Fast Water Removal in Waynesboro Gets Thrift Store Back to Business
Every business with a water heater has the potential to need water removal from their premises if the seal fails or there is a leak. Imagine the amount of water from a thirty or forty-gallon tank could mean for your business.
SERVPRO received a late night call for water removal in Waynesboro from a thrift store. A water tank in a utility closet had leaked throughout the back part of the shop. The owner was concerned about being closed for any length of time.
Our technicians arrived quickly and used portable pumps with wand attachments to extract the water from the linoleum flooring quickly. The industrial carpets outside the closet and employee common areas were removed for drying and disinfecting as they were made of rubber and did not absorb water.
After the water was removed, our technicians set up air movers, and instead of the cold coil dehumidifiers, we chose to use desiccant-based dehumidifiers. As the air movers cause moisture to rise from surfaces, these machines attract it to a rotating wheel coated in a solid material such as a silica gel or activated alumina. As moisture collects on the wheel, it is deposited into a damp air collection port, and the wheel turns to collect more. It is a very effective process for removing moisture quickly.
Mold is always a concern after a water intrusion. Once the area is dry, our technicians carefully wipe down all surfaces with our professional strength antifungal and antibacterial cleaners that leave surfaces sanitary and deodorized. SERVPRO technicians also take moisture readings after drying to ensure there are areas of residual moisture. In this case, the soft moisture meter indicated mold should not develop.
Once completed, SERVPRO technicians walked the shop owner through the restored areas to ensure she was pleased with our service and make sure all concerns were addressed before she reopened for business.
