When a Leaking Dishwasher Hose Causes Commercial Water Damage in Thomson
Did a Leaking Dishwasher Pipe Cause Commercial Water Damage in Thomson?
Many small businesses provide a lunchroom where their employees can relax having lunch, or perhaps a coffee, while on their break. Some even offer appliances such as a microwave, a fridge, a cooking appliance, and even a dishwasher. It is not uncommon to fill the dishwasher, start the dishwashing cycle before heading home. Imagine finding water all over the floor the next morning, including the office areas. No one can work until the water cleaned up, and the area dried.
SERVPRO can respond to commercial water damage situations in Thomson in less than 4 hours on a 24 / 7 basis. We understand the importance of keeping your business open and protecting the contents from damage from water leaks.
Water leaking from a pipe can spread to office areas quite quickly. Kitchen floors covered with tile or linoleum, helps the water migrate to other areas of the building. Carpeted areas can soon absorb the water as it spreads across floors. Water may also wick into office furniture and walls, causing further damage.
SERVPRO has water extraction devices for use in situations like this one. After shutting off the source of the water, we can vacuum up surface water from the hard surface floors. Office furniture can be placed on blocks to protect it from any further moisture that remains. We use portable water extraction vacuums in corners and hard to reach areas.
We can deploy weighted water extraction equipment that squeezes the water out of the carpet and padding while it vacuums the water from the carpet. One of our SERVPRO technicians guides the machine to remove water from every area. His weight adds to the weight of the device to help compress the carpet to squeeze every bit of water from the carpets.
We introduce air movers and dehumidifiers to help absorb remaining moisture, dry the area, and return humidity levels to normal levels.
