Commercial Water Damage Experts in Avon Describe The Monitoring Process

If a pipe inside your Avon private school ever develops a leak in it, moisture can spread throughout your building quickly. Whenever a plumbing failure occurs, it is wise to call in a professional commercial water damage restoration company such as SERVPRO. However, there are some steps that you and your maintenance staff can take to help speed up the mitigation process.

Conducting the right procedures during your commercial water damage project in Avon, quickly after the leak occurs, can help you save many of your building materials and contents. Many times, a plumbing failure can happen overnight, which can give the leak time to spill hundreds of gallons of liquid H2O into your school's building. If you ever happen to walk into an indoor flooding situation, it is wise to get your maintenance staff started on mitigation procedures quickly.

First, your crew should work towards mitigating any potential safety hazards. Anything that could harm one of your building's occupants needs repairing, or the area should get blocked off and closed to all foot traffic. Next, it is wise to work towards removing any visible water. Moisture can be mopped up and squeegeed from hard surface floors and vacuumed up from carpeted surfaces.

Once your maintenance and janitorial crew have extracted as much liquid water as they can, it is wise to begin drying out your contents and structural components. It can help to remove the chairs and desks from any wet floors. Once you have the affected area clear of furniture and other contents, you can set up fans to create air circulation.

Once you have taken the first steps of water extraction and drying, it is then wise to get help from a professional company like SERVPRO. One value we give to being invited to help you with your project is our testing and monitoring capabilities.

We can start by testing your contents and building materials to see how wet they are. We test both affected and unaffected areas so that we can determine a drying goal. After achieving the goal, we return to test every day until reaching the final drying goal and all moisture levels return to what they were before the water leak occurred.

We can work with your maintenance team to make sure the best job possible gets completed. For professional help with testing and monitoring, call SERVPRO of The Farmington Valley at (860) 675-4500 because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
