Commercial duct cleaning Commercial Fire and Water Damage Events Present Unique Challenges

Fire damage can cause significant problems for your business from the devastating consequences of a fire disaster. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the top five causes of fires in commercial facilities are issues with cooking equipment, heating units, electrical/lighting issues, smoking materials, and intentional fire starting.  

SERVPRO of North Sacramento understands the function, size, and complexity differences in commercial fire and water losses.  We provide commercial restoration services for fire-damaged structures, affected tenants, and contents.  This includes understanding the variables and complexities when coordinating services among property owners and/or property managers, carrier representatives, and associated professionals engaged in the decision making process.  Coordinating timely approval of workflow through decision-makers promotes efficiency in managing a project to completion.  It is also important to recognize and schedule the correct tools and equipment required to successfully complete a commercial remediation project.

SERVPRO of North Sacramento is aware that using the proper tools and equipment on a commercial project is important to our ability to handle the loss. Some of the equipment used on a commercial loss will not differ from that used on a residential loss; however, the type and size of the equipment can differ substantially.  Commercial losses can require large-format desiccant dehumidifiers, portable dehumidifiers, and various heating and cooling units.  This type of equipment is used to focus on temperature and humidity control.  In addition, it may be necessary to use various extraction units, generators, power distribution devices, lighting, air movers, and air filtration devices. This type of equipment is used to focus on extraction, power, lighting, and airflow.  The use of monitoring, cleaning, and deodorization devices are important in commercial remediation due to the size of commercial losses.  In some cases, aerial work platforms, scaffolding, and material handling equipment may be needed for unique commercial loss situations. This type of equipment is used to focus on monitoring, cleaning, deodorization, lifts, and material handling.  Due to the size of commercial remediation projects, some projects may require additional labor and equipment resources.

SERVPRO of North Sacramento has a well-developed network of local commercial subcontractors, vendors, and resource providers that it can rely upon should additional labor and equipment be required on a large scale project.  Having immediate access to quality vendors and subcontractors is vital to providing a fast response to our commercial clients.  Commercial projects require a systematic approach to proper coordination of decision-makers, tools, and equipment as well as labor and equipment that contribute to the successful completion of commercial cleaning and restoration projects.  

The following commercial fire damage statistics are provided by the NFPA:

Food Services:  From 2010-2014 there were an estimated 7,410 fires in food services facilities, which caused annual losses of $165 million in property damage.  Cooking equipment was the root cause of over 60% of those fires with electrical malfunctions the next highest cause.

Retail:  On average, 13,570 structure fires in stores and merchant properties each year, resulting in $604 million in property damage.  The average fire damage comes to $73,800 per facility.  Electrical issues are the primary cause of these fires.

Hospitality:  Each year the NFPA estimates there are 3,520 hotel/motel fires.  The main source of hotel fires happens in the kitchen.  Whether it’s the individual rooms’ kitchenette or the main kitchen of the hotel, 2 out of every 5 hotel fires start here.  Annual property damage estimates for the hospitality industry are around $84 million.

Education:  Education facilities have on average 4,980 structure fires resulting from cooking equipment issues in the cafeterias to intentionally set fires.  These fires cause around $70 million annually.  Seventy percent of educational facilities that have fire losses are nurseries, elementary, middle, and high schools. 

Healthcare:  5,750 healthcare facilities succumb to fire damage each year, with an astounding $50.4 billion in property damage.  A breakdown of healthcare structure fires shows 48% are in nursing homes, 22% in mental health facilities, 20% in hospitals, and 11% in doctors' offices.

Office Properties:  Office property fire damage has an annual estimate of $112 million with the top 3 fire sources being cooking equipment (6%), intentionally set (20%) and electrical/lighting (12%).

Fires put businesses out of business on a regular basis.  It's reported that 50-60% of businesses close down following a disaster. Of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place.  At SERVPRO of North Sacramento, we believe pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind.  We can help you be "Ready for whatever happens" which speaks trust to your clients and employees in the event your business is affected by a disaster.  By developing a SERVPRO of North Sacramento Emergency READY Profile for your business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation and can help minimize how water and fire damage can affect your business. 

In the insurance claim process, a speedy restoration company response matters, and that is why SERVPRO of North Sacramento is Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Restoring Your Sacramento Commercial Property After A Fire or Water Damage Event

 Commercial Water Damage Events Present Unique Challenges Technicians in PPE

At SERVPRO of North Sacramento, we understand storms and inclement weather can bring wind damage, heavy rain, and flooding that can devastate any business in a matter of minutes.  Disasters don’t just strike during regular business hours which is why SERVPRO of North Sacramento offers 24-hour emergency service 365 days per year with highly skilled disaster professionals.

Every hour spent cleaning up is an hour of lost revenue and productivity.  When an emergency situation arises in your business, call SERVPRO of North Sacramento.  Our technicians are trained and know what to do in any unpredictable disaster which is critical in mitigating any further loss or damage to your property and your contents.  We are faster to any size disaster!

As a business owner, if you've never experienced a disaster, here are some tips to help you move forward and take control of your loss.  If you don't take control, the insurance company will and that could cost you thousands!

Step I – Locate Your Insurance Policies

  • It is very important that you carefully read your insurance policy and know your coverages.  Obtain a COMPLETE COPY of your current policy not just the "Declarations Page".  Read the fine print and understand the coverages you have and how much you are entitled to by coverage.
  • If your policies are lost/destroyed, contact your agent/broker or insurer.
  • If you can’t remember who the agent or insurer is, look at bank/payment records.  Your mortgage company may also have records.

Step II – Contact Your Insurer

  • Contact your broker or agent immediately and let them know about your loss.  If you don’t have a broker or agent, contact your insurer directly to file a claim.
  • Ask your insurer for an advance to cover immediate expenses, such as the cost to board up/fence and/or dry out your business property to prevent vandalism, additional destruction, and removal of debris.   You have a duty to mitigate any further damage after a loss.  If you operate your business in a rental property, you should still seek an advance for costs necessary to protect your business's personal property and inventory.
  • If your insurance provides coverage for loss of business income, you may also be entitled to the costs you incur to avoid or minimize the suspension of your operations. 

Step III – Documenting Your Loss

Make notes and lists as you remember the property that was lost. 

  • Don’t worry about trying to value all items at this stage.  Final valuations will be worked out later.  It is likely that your property loss will be resolved sooner than your business income loss, which will vary depending on the length of the suspension.  You may need to involve your accountant to help document the loss.
  • Keep receipts for everything you buy and what you spend on repair/replacement of property/inventory and business continuity expenses.
  • Keep track of how much the insurance company gives you and what it’s for.
  • DOCUMENT EVERYTHING.  Create a folder or binder with expenditures due to the fire, repair estimates, claim reports, and all communications with and submissions to your insurance company.
  • Cooperate with all reasonable requests from your insurance company, allow them to fully inspect, and keep them informed. Clear and frequent communications and a diary will help with disputes.

How SERVPRO Removes Water in Sacramento Businesses

1/13/2020 (Permalink)

Standing water on floor of office building When the owners of this office called, we removed the water then dried the building. Our goal is to restore your business quickly.

Commercial Water Removal in Your Sacramento Business 

A pipe bursting in the bathroom of your retail shop can have a significant impact on your business. If the pipe burst outside regular business hours, it may be some time before you become aware of the issue. Once aware, it is crucial to work immediately to mitigate as much damage as possible. 

Our SERVPRO team moves quickly toward successful commercial water removal in Sacramento. While you are waiting for professional assistance, you should ensure the water main is off to stop more water flowing from the pipes and begin drying the impacted areas by mopping tile floors and using towels to sop up any excess moisture. Mopping is especially essential to ensure that your business does not suffer any secondary damage, such as loose floor tiles or hazardous mold infestations. 

We understand that any time your business is out of operation is money lost. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. Our project manager or crew chief first assesses the damage to the structure, materials, and merchandise within your store. Then, they develop a plan for fast and effective removal of excess moisture from within the establishment. 

SERVPRO restoration technicians remove the merchandise from impacted areas, to ensure that excess moisture and humidity do not damage items that sustained no initial damage. These undamaged items should be kept in a safe, dry place. Damaged items should be inventoried with details for insurance purposes before removal. 

The water damaged areas should be thoroughly dried, and the relative humidity (RH) of the room restored to restore the commercial space to preloss conditions. Technicians use extraction equipment to take the remaining water out of the space. Typically, portable extractors can remove water after a pipe bursting. Technicians may make several passes for optimal extraction. 

We place high-velocity air movers and industrial-strength dehumidifiers throughout the impacted area. These tools pull excess moisture from the materials, contents, and air within the room. The dehumidifying process stops when RH levels are under 60 percent, and the contents are dry. We make it, "Like it never even happened."

The Pros and Cons of New Construction on Mold Growth after Flooding in Sacramento Businesses

11/25/2019 (Permalink)

drying equipment in a break room SERVPRO Deploys Advanced Equipment in Sacramento to Mitigate Flood Damage and Mold Infestations

Commercial Flood Damage Sacramento – Avoiding Mold in Air Tight BuildingS

Flash floods sometimes materialize in seconds, making it challenging to prepare and protect your business contents. Everything is wet, and debris has washed into the office area. Newer office buildings are designed to be airtight to reduce the cooling and heating requirements. With little fresh air coming into the building, mold can proliferate, especially after a severe flood.

Our SERVPRO crew chief is usually first on the scene at every commercial flood damage event in Sacramento. One of their first tasks is to assess the damage, debris in the building, safety concerns, contamination, type of building, and whether the building air exchange system is still operating. The crew chief or the project manager develops a plan to mitigate the damage, arranges for the appropriate equipment and staff to respond, clean, dry, and restore your business.

Managing Fresh Air

Air Tight buildings rely upon air exchange systems to bring fresh air into the building and expel stale, humid air. Depending on local conditions, especially after a storm, the outside air can be very humid. In these situations, the air exchange system may bring in the humid air while SERVPRO is attempting to dry the interior of the building after it has been cleaned. Technicians may recommend turning the air exchange system off or establish negative pressure areas to manage the humidity.

Mold can proliferate in these conditions. SERVPRO technicians are IICRC-certified and trained in mold remediation and prevention. With the assistance of the buildings AC system, dehumidifiers, and internally placed SERVPRO air movers, we focus on removing all areas of moisture. Moisture sensors are utilized to detect moisture pockets and dry these areas before mold can develop.

Occasionally SERVPRO may have to make flood cuts in the walls to access water or moisture pockets. Any of these sources of moisture may contribute to the growth of mold, especially in buildings that are designed to be airtight.

Our crew chief always communicates our plan to our clients, and the approach technicians plan to take to return your commercial space as quickly as possible.

Call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 for 24/7 service. We proudly serve North Natomas, South Natomas, American River Parkway, and the surrounding areas. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Our Professionals Can Save Your Sacramento Hotel After A Fire

11/4/2019 (Permalink)

Beautiful hotel room suite After a fire disrupts operations in your hotel, it helps to rely on professional mitigations and remediation experts.

Reliable Help When Your Sacramento Hotel Suffers Fire Damage

After a fire disrupts operations in your Sacramento lodgings and event center, it helps to rely on professional mitigations and remediation experts. The inclination of your managers and housekeeping crew might be to close for a short time to get things back to normal. Unfortunately, disappointed customers have other options, and the failure of your accommodations to honor reservations can cause the loss of business into the future. We can share strategies that can respond to the fire crisis while also permitting you to remain open for many of your operations.

Guest Negligence Can Cause Fire Risks
There is an endless number of ways human error results in fire damage in your Sacramento hotel. Your Sacramento hotel, unfortunately, can be the site for one of these accidents. If a guest falls asleep, cigarette in hand, or an iron used to smooth out an outfit is left on; a blaze can start. Smoke from a smoldering slow burn can spread to other rooms, and sprinkler systems, although necessary to quell the fire, can add to the mess by soaking everything.

Containment Strategies Can Minimize Effects
Because of the mandated and build-in safeguards, fires in your property can be knocked down quickly and limited in their direct effects. The problem with fire damage, however, is the tendency of smoke to drift far from the ignition site. The key to mitigating odor and residue migration is to have SERVPRO onsite as soon as possible. We use heavy plastic sheeting and negative pressure air scrubber technology to define the work area to the smallest space possible. Air scrubbers capture the airborne particles in HEPA filters and exhaust to the outdoors. The configuration also prevents further movement of the smoke and associated residues to other areas on your property so operations can continue.

Streamlined Approach and Comprehensive Results
SERVPRO is a full-service disaster recovery company. We can manage everything from fire-fighting water removal to air-quality remediation to efficient soot cleanup. Our production facility can clean, dry, and deodorize affected contents off-site, using a range of innovative resources and our dedicated Contents Processing Technicians (CPT). You can rely on our wide-ranging skills and hard-won certifications to clean up fire damage professionally while supporting the ongoing operation of the rest of your hotel.

Count on SERVPRO of North Sacramento to partner with you when fire damage threatens the overall operations of your business. We have research-proven strategies to share; set up your consultation by calling (916) 587-3438.

SERVPRO has What it Takes for Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Sacramento

10/1/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO vans. trucks, and cars in parking lot Our vehicles are loaded with equipment and are ready to roll to your water damaged business. Call us today!

Why SERVPRO Should Be Your First Call for Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Sacramento

For Sacramento properties, commercial water removal requires more than the standard equipment the regular janitorial crew that cleans the building uses. SERVPRO's green service vans come stocked with industrial-grade portable pumps, extractor wands, specialized attachments, and professional drying equipment.

Extensive Service Fleet

SERVPRO has a fleet of service vehicles ready to roll on-site to assist in the cleanup for water damage within hours of the initial call. Along with their vans, trucks with mounted pumps for large-scale water removal are also available. The technicians bring everything they need on each job site, including generators for situations where electricity is not accessible to power the necessary extraction and drying equipment.

Extensive Training

The technicians undergo comprehensive instruction before they ever set foot onto a live worksite. The training facility has numerous scenarios set up for technicians to learn through hands-on experience the best methods for different types of water loss situations.

Fans vs. Air Movers

Commercial properties must undergo complete drying after a water loss to avoid foul odors or mold infestations in the building. Standard industrial fans do not provide the airpower to dry more than surfaces. The commercial centrifugal air movers used by SERVPRO blow high-velocity air streams and their compact design allows for focused airflow and the use of specialized attachments for specialty drying situations such as floormats or within wall cavities using Injecti-Dry systems.

Industrial Dehumidification Lessens Loss

The faster the ambient humidity lowers in a property, lessens the probability of secondary issues such as mold. Technicians use different types of professional dehumidifiers in tandem with air movers to lower the interior moisture levels and circulate progressively warmer drier air. This cycle dries properties quickly and inhibits mold spore germination. 

SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 has the experience and expertise to perform commercial water removal for both small businesses to large-size corporations and make the water loss, "Like it never even happened."

DIY Drying After Accidental Plumbing Break in Sacramento Store

Renovations and improvements to your Sacramento store can help to bolster its aesthetic appeal to your customer and generate additional revenue with innovative displays and advertisements in the shop. The downside is the added workload to continually think of new looks and functions for areas of the business, and the risks of causing more substantial problems for your business by accident. Anchoring displays and massive signage in the shop can improve visibility for the patrons, but it also requires substantial anchoring into the construction materials of the store. 

The more frequently holes get drilled into the walls of your store, the likelihood increases for puncturing water lines – requiring fast water removal for your Sacramento building. Most plumbing is neatly tucked away behind materials like drywall and kept in the cavities formed between rooms with a shared common wall. Our SERVPRO professionals can help with an immediate response amid a water loss incident, helping to reduce the need for comprehensive restoration and recovery efforts. 

From the time that a line gets punctured beyond the drywall into the cavity, the property owner must move quickly to get the supply to this breach stopped. Depending on the severity of this water damage to the plumbing, high volumes of water are possible within these wall cavities, and it does not take long to begin to saturate materials like drywall to become a substantial threat to trafficked areas of your business. 

With holes drilled into walls of your main floor of the store, your entire stock and inventory become at risk for spreading water damage and moisture concerns. Soft materials like clothing and other fabrics can quickly absorb standing water pooling on the floor, and even elevated relative humidity levels can increase the threat of secondary effects like mold growth for our SERVPRO team to battle. 

Water loss incidents that begin with a breach of your plumbing supply lines can quickly get out of control without experience and leading equipment. Let our SERVPRO of North Sacramento team show you how to make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (916) 587-3438.

Sacramento Smoke and Soot Cleanup--Done Right by SERVPRO

4/10/2019 (Permalink)

The SERVPRO Green Vehicle-We're Faster To Any Size Disaster for Fire Damage Cleanup in Sacramento

Fire Damage Restoration Professionals in Sacramento Describe How Smoke Issues Are Treated

If a fire breaks out in another building other than yours inside your Sacramento office complex, your unit could still get negatively affected. Problems that happen in units above, below, or next to yours can cause commercial fire damage inside your place of business. Smoke from fires in other parts of your building can get to your office by going through walls or entering through heating and ventilation systems. Any time smoke enters a structure, foul odors, and soot residues can cause problems with materials and contents. During many commercial fire damage scenarios, soot cleaning and removal is a part of what our SERVPRO professionals can do to help save the structural components and contents inside your office.
 
As soon as you notice smoke entering your office unit from one adjacent to it, you should call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. The first step we take when arriving at any fire damage situation in Sacramento is to figure out which of your building materials and contents we can clean and which items we have to remove and replace. We accomplish this with a test cleaning kit. Included in this kit is a large variety of chemicals that are designed to clean off different types of soot residues from the various surfaces inside your structure. We also utilize different techniques so we know whether we can clean a surface or not and what combination of chemicals and methods to use.
 
Once we figure out the best techniques to use on each of your affected surfaces and give you an initial estimate, we begin treating any damage that we found during the original inspection. After all of your building materials and contents get cleaned we work towards deodorizing your office. To remove burnt smells, we can implement fogging machines that disperse chemicals into the air to mimic smoke or a hydroxyl generator that chemically neutralizes foul aromas.
 
If you ever see or smell smoke in your office, call SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438, 24 hours a day.

Don't Let a Fire Ruin Your Sacramento Business

3/19/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO can easily get rid of smoke residue and odor in your business.

Efficient Fire Odor Elimination for Your Sacramento Business

Smells are the fastest way to remind someone of an event or a place. As long as the aromas are pleasant, the memories are welcome. The acrid smell of a fire in your Sacramento business is not a remembrance to treasure. Even if our restoration technicians do their best to clean up fire residues, a smoky odor brings back the terror and the frustration of the fire that nearly closed your doors for good.

Restoration of a business in Sacramento is incomplete if fire odors linger. Employees might be triggered with flashbacks about the blaze and clients can lose confidence in your management abilities if the disaster appears partially unresolved. Inventory, documents, and other items stored on-site can carry the smell far from your headquarters, troubling to loyal customers as well as potential leads.

SERVPRO’s deodorization specialists use a broad range of strategies to eliminate the odors remaining after other fire cleanup completes. Cover-ups with distracting scents are not permanent solutions. We work through an odor-elimination protocol to get rid of the stench for all time.

All burned items must be located and removed, including searching in hidden cavities. Thorough cleaning of surfaces is then checked off, with consideration of sealing some areas to prevent the volatile compounds from vaporizing and increasing the smell. This is often an option when areas in a commercial HVAC system contain sooty residues that the airflow could move throughout your business space. On occasion, enzymatic products can help as well.

SERVPRO deodorization technicians then choose from among advanced techniques to eliminate the ability tiny airborne and settled particulates to share the smell. We might recreate the conditions of the blaze with thermal foggers, equipment that combusts deodorants at high temperatures to seek out smelly particles and neutralize them. Our experts also use ozone machines and hydroxyl generators to change the chemical composition of the remaining sooty bits, rendering them non-offensive to the nose.

If your business suffered from soot and fire, persistent odors are often not far behind. Contact SERVPRO of North Sacramento at (916) 587-3438 for our industry-leading deodorization services.

Some Ways to Make Your Commercial Flood Damage Remediation Situation in Sacramento Easier

2/10/2019 (Permalink)

Flooding after a pipe break requires powerful water removal to help prevent mold from starting. Call our SERVPRO team to assess and remediate.

Expert Help for Flood Damaged Sacramento Businesses

Flooding is not a pleasant event for any property owner in Sacramento. The struggles felt by our local businesses when overland or internal flooding occurs in commercial spaces extend to the city at large as well. We all depend on our schools, restaurants, retail stores, workplaces, and entertainment venues to be open and ready to meet our needs. When a flood disaster strikes a commercial customer our efforts help both the business and our community.

A water supply line break in a commercial space can cause significant flood damage in Sacramento. If the event occurs outside of working hours, the quantity of water flowing into a facility can be vast and incredibly destructive. As soon as the staff at the business first notes the flooding, fast action from water removal professionals is crucial to limit the damage done.

SERVPRO crews are expert at managing large flood water removal scenarios. We arrive in vehicles stocked with pumps and truck-mounted high-efficiency extractors powered by onboard generators if the electricity at the site is temporarily unavailable. Our crews jump on the tasks at hand as soon as a preliminary assessment completes, and the water is shut off, confident in our ability to begin and complete needed water evacuation.

After the majority of the standing water exits, SERVPRO crew members use a range of devices to detect and measure moisture levels to inform us as we structure drying goals and configurations. Infrared scanners help detect water trapped in recesses and cavities behind walls, under floors and ceilings, and any other place moisture collects in a commercial physical plant.

All water must be suctioned out or otherwise released or the risk of mold growth spirals. The SERVPRO team uses a host of strategies including flood cuts, drilled holes, and top-down wand extraction to rid the spaces of all liquid water. Then we employ air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to reduce the moisture content of porous building materials by moving water out as a vapor to be captured and removed via condensation or absorption.

Water that remains unabated for 24 to 48 hours dramatically increases the probability that mold spores generate into colonies and multiply. Any other microorganisms present in a sewage backup or overland flooding during the event also have a window of opportunity to grow and spread. Because of this, SERVPRO concludes flood damage remediation with a thorough cleaning and treatment with EPA registered disinfectants to inhibit microbial infestation.

SERVPRO of North Sacramento works fast and hard to remediate commercial flood damage in the communities we serve. Contact us 24/ 7 at (916) 587-3438 to schedule an evaluation.

SERVPRO Offers Professional Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration to Sacramento Buildings--Large and Small

Protecting Artifacts in Fire-Damaged Sacramento Museums

Museums throughout the Sacramento area offer a look into global and local history that must get protected for viewing by interested parties for generations to come. Unfortunately, as with any building, a museum could fall victim to disasters like fires. Finding the right professional restoration team is critical at this point, as the right technicians can help protect these unique artifacts and items from becoming unsalvageable and worthless.

With so much of the area’s history tied up in the displays of your Sacramento museum, protecting it from fire damage has to be a top priority. Even small localized blazes can cause widespread effects throughout the facility with smoke and soot damages. Our SERVPRO professionals have expert cleaning strategies to provide on the spot restoration for your building, but also pack-out services to carefully restore individual items that could have been affected more directly by carbon and residues. For expensive and precious pieces of art, SERVPRO recommends a professional curator seek out the services of a conservation restoration company that specializes in this field.

As the overseer of the facility, you must protect the artifacts and items you display within your museum with the highest regard. In ways, this responsibility is even more important than making these items available to view by the public that wanders the halls daily. Our professionals offer a pack-out service that can help affected pieces get restored to their original vibrancy and appearance.

Pack-outs are items removed to a nearby facility or safe area of the museum itself out of harm’s way. These decisions can get made based on items that continue to be at-risk throughout fire restoration efforts or based on items that have gotten damaged by the fire but can get restored by our experienced technicians. Our SERVPRO team tags items for removal and storage with our initial assessment of the damage and have gentle cleansers and techniques to preserve the authenticity and uniqueness of one-of-a-kind artifacts affected by soot or smoke residue. Many items are good candidates for submersion into an ultra-sonic bath for gentle cleaning.

While you might not anticipate the possibility of fire damage affecting your museum or other place of business, the right trained professionals can help you to get your doors back open to the public quickly. Give our SERVPRO of North Sacramento rapid response team a call anytime at (916) 587-3438.

We can double check the quality of the extraction and drying efforts with the use of our moisture detection equipment. Thermal imagery cameras can offer temperature cues to indicate the presence of water and moisture pockets even below or behind surfaces to show our technicians where to continue to focus our efforts to ensure that the moisture levels drop to acceptable parameters.

We're Faster To Any Size Disaster; our SERVPRO of North Sacramento rapid response team can make a difference quickly in your water-damaged arena. Trust us to get the job done quickly to limit the effect that this situation has on future events and ticketholders. Contact us 24/7  at (916) 587-3438.

Some of the Biggest Problems With Sacramento Commercial Water Damage

11/9/2018 (Permalink)

When water damage is on a large scale, you need to call SERVPRO. We have the equipment, technicians and experience to handle the job.

SERVPRO Has What it Takes for Water Removal from a Warehouse in Sacramento

Although finding a company capable of handling water removal from a warehouse in Sacramento may seem difficult, we at SERVPRO remain confident that we can handle even the largest of water removal and restoration projects in the area. Through superior logistics, networks of allied companies that act as a safety net should something go wrong, and industry-leading standards in equipment technology and availability, we handle water removal from large buildings without trouble. If you still have doubts, here are a few of the techniques we use to dry the place out quickly and thoroughly.

High-Volume Water Extraction
When a water removal project from a Sacramento warehouse calls for extraction of standing water, many companies balk at the prospect of handling such a large volume of liquid. Even worse, some may begin the extraction process under-equipped and poorly prepared, and may not remove water from the premises in time to prevent some of the worst damage from happening. We use truck-mounted extraction pumps to remove standing water as quickly as necessary, bringing in additional trucks as needed to make sure the building gets drained before damage can get any worse.

Fast Drying
Once standing water has been cleared, we can begin the process of drying the area out and eliminating moisture that has already soaked into materials in the building and stored objects. By creating targeted air currents throughout the building, we can pick up water droplets on a large scale before depositing them in buckets via our fast-acting chemical and thermal dehumidifying technology.

Care for Contents
Depending on what you have stored in the warehouse, we may have to use special preventative and restorative measures to protect the building's contents. If they present a safety hazard when mixed with water, be sure to let us know so that our technicians can don adequate personal protective equipment.

SERVPRO of North Sacramento provides industry-leading care for our commercial customers in the aftermath of a disaster and has the resources required to handle even the largest projects. Contact us at (916) 587-3438.
