SERVPRO Technicians Tackle Floodwaters Quickly After a Situation at a Local Store

A festive atmosphere in a clean, dry environment helps put shoppers in the mood for increased 'what ifs?' and boosts their creativity when planning a party at their Ortega home. Even when browsing in the bargain bin or aisle, people skip the items covered in dust or sporting faded labels. Finding a good deal still does not include paying for something deemed 'below par.'

When the weather changes in the surrounding area, commercial flood damage  happens quickly. As water from the street slowly rises, covering your parking lot and then seeping under your door, flooding begins to damage everything that becomes wet. Any recent construction near your shop can worsen the effects as it can change the path of rainwater, creating a mini-flood that can cause significant damage.

Floodwater can also sweep oil and other vehicular fluids left behind by cars' and trucks' leaking motors into your store. This type of contamination can ruin carpets and severely damage other types of flooring. Our employees receive intensive training that prepares them for handling any degree and high complexity of flood damage. Without these skills and on-the-job experiences, restoring your business setting becomes next to impossible.

Flooding creates extensive and complex types of problems. Placing inventory higher than normal can protect it to a great extent from direct contact with the flood water. However, the greater humidity caused by standing water and its evaporation can later damage your more delicate stock. Because this takes very little time to happen, we need to begin our work as soon as possible.

Flooding creates the risks of contamination, as well as the damage. We remove the solid debris from silt and soil to refuse from the street, in addition to the water. After drying everything, we can then begin detailing and cleaning procedures. This cleaning includes sanitizing surfaces that patrons of your store and employees might come into contact with on a regular basis.

Saving the carpet is usually impossible because of the contamination involved, but sometimes the latest advances in technology allow for successful restoration. Carpeting can hold significant amounts of water and can significantly alter the indoor humidity, so knowing the future of the carpeting can help determine the best drying procedures. Open windows or heaters with dehumidifiers, large air blowers, and air scrubbers reduce the humidity back to normal levels.

Flooding can affect your store in negative ways for months to come, but a strong response to this kind of tragedy can help your business reopen and continue thriving. You can call (209) 477-3090 to reach the friendly professional restorers of SERVPRO of Stockton. We know your business is essential to our economic success, and we want to see you succeed.
