Commercial water damage requires speedy and decisive action. SERVPRO is your one stop shop for all of your emergency restoration needs.

SERVPRO Identifies the Main Water Intrusion Problem but Also Pays Attention to Minor or Hidden Issues

When there is a water leak at your Cottage Grove business premises, you are likely to be preoccupied with how to stop it. However, the situation also involves other destructive aspects. Exposure of structural materials and contents to moisture is one such problem, and immediate attention is necessary to stop unnecessary destruction.

By taking appropriate water, mitigation steps your Cottage Grove business premises can withstand water intrusion, ensuring you end up fixing minimal damages. Quickly calling SERVPRO can help control many aspects of the incident, making it "Like it never even happened."

Actions that help moisture management include:

  • Timely extraction of any pooling water
  • Sustained humidity control
  • Removal of vulnerable contents

Moisture affects materials differently, with some withstanding extended exposure while others get destroyed even after minimal contact. Paper documents such as receipts or contract papers are highly vulnerable to water or humidity exposure since the ink smudges from moisture exposure, destroying all the information in the document. Alternatively, they can develop a musty odor or grow mold. 

Protecting vulnerable materials is possible, but it requires speedy and decisive action. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate the water leak and the contents you have in your premises, determining whether it is possible to protect them onsite or otherwise. Setting up enough dehumidifiers helps keep humidity levels at safe levels. Pack-outs, whereby we relocate the items to a different section of your premises, are also helpful. 

Such actions are more helpful when you have the right resources like:

  • Lifting straps 
  • Hand carts
  • Protective materials like plastic sheets

The resources play different roles in limiting moisture exposure for contents. For instance, a plastic sheet or tarp helps stop water from dripping directly on contents before stopping the source or relocating the items. Lifting straps and hand carts simplify the movement of bulky or heavy items such as appliances shortening the time it takes.

SERVPRO of Woodbury, Cottage Grove, takes moisture management seriously during water mitigation exercises. You can reach us at (651) 314-4631 for assistance. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
