Let us show you the way through your Stockton Commercial water damage.

According to a report issued by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), a full 25% of businesses affected by commercial flood damage never reopen for business. One of the key reasons given is the inability to perform needed cleanup or repairs. That is why it is crucial to outsource the task to a professional restoration services company.

When commercial flood damage hits a business property in Stockton, the structure must be water-free, odor-free, and disinfected to reopen for daily operations. There usually are repairs and rebuilding needed to replace flood-damaged building materials. All of this must occur quickly as the longer business remains closed results in a loss of revenue, that in some cases, is not unrecoverable for the company.

Removal of Important Items

SERVPRO technicians look for items that could possibly become damaged if they remain on-site during the water loss cleanup. In properties that have storage for stock, equipment, or essential documents, technicians arrange a fast pack out to preserve these items in a secure location. Paper and wood products degrade when exposed to excess moisture, and the surfaces are extra-inviting for mold growth. 

Controlled Demolition Hastens Reopening

It may not look like it, but cutting away ruined sheetrock, disposing of groundwater-soaked carpeting and removing delaminated tile speeds up the drying process, so the required repairs happen in a more expedited manner. 

Prepping for Reopening

No matter what type of business received flood loss, clean up of the debris, and water must occur, then SERVPRO technicians work on disinfecting the property. As a category three biohazard, when the groundwater saturates items such as upholstered office furnishings, carpeting, and most porous items-they require disposal. The technicians try to restore all the things they can through their cleaning methods, but some things have no restoration potential. When the disinfection efforts complete, the property is ready for rebuilding. 

Skip Looking for a Contractor

With a general contractor license #937457, SERVPRO can offer both cleanup and reconstruction services. This takes the stress out of finding, vetting, and sourcing a construction company to complete any needed repairs before reopening.
