Commercial Water Removal Experts Of Colorado Springs Discuss Moisture Mitigation
Rapid Response, Water Extraction, and Moisture Control Are Core Aspects of SERVPRO Services for Offices and Warehouses in the Colorado Springs Area
As time goes on, items inside your Colorado Springs building such as water lines and appliances get old and malfunction. If a pipe breaks inside your company's warehouse, water can leak into the building. Excessive moisture can cause many different problems that your business must now have to handle.
Moisture can ruin the structural integrity of building materials as well as cause mildew-like odors to exist. When completing commercial water removal in Colorado Springs, measures get taken to reduce the moisture content of items within 48 hours. After the two day period, spores that naturally exist inside a building can turn into mold.
Before any restoration work begins, our SERVPRO technicians take steps to secure the work area. We inspect the damaged areas and figure out if there are any potential safety hazards present. Water can cause drywall in the ceiling to partially fall or cause electrical wiring to short out creating safety issues. Any such hazards are fixed so that your warehouse is safe for all occupants during the restoration process, including our technicians.
Once the work area is safe, our SERVPRO technicians develop a project scope that outlines how the process gets completed. When working with businesses, affecting your company's bottom line as little as possible is our number one priority. We often change how and when we complete the different procedures so that your business can stay functioning as usual throughout all of the phases of restoration, whenever possible.
The first step to reducing moisture levels inside the building is to extract as much water as possible from the structure. After any standing water and saturated materials are vacuumed with our specialized extraction equipment, rapid drying takes place. During the drying process, our SERVPRO technicians set up a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers in the affected region to speed up the natural evaporation process.
Air movers create a counterclockwise air flow that moves moisture from the surface of wet materials allowing them to continue releasing water into the air. Dehumidifiers pull water from the air and dispense it out in liquid form lowering the relative humidity inside the structure. Our goal is to achieve a maximum of 60% RH within the treated warehouse. Dehumidifiers also exhaust hot, dry air that gets used by the air movers.
Salvaging inventory and building materials inside your warehouse from replacement can save your business time and money. If you ever need help with moisture problems in your company's warehouse, call SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes at (719) 434-4626 any time of the day.
