Colorado Springs Bakery Sustains Water Damage
Our Certified Technicians Act Fast to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Business
Many commercial spaces are located below residential rental units in Colorado Springs. When something goes wrong with the plumbing upstairs, the business owner may not know of the water and certainly has no control over it. Unexpected damage from water leaking from above is a job for a professional restoration company particularly when the business affected prepares and sells food.
An unoccupied residential unit above your business experiences a burst pipe, eventually causing commercial water damage to your Colorado Springs bakery and cafe. Because it went unnoticed until the collected moisture broke through your ceiling, a large amount of water cascaded into your retail and dining space all at once. Services needed include water removal, wall and ceiling repair, and expert drying of an antique hardwood floor. We offer a full menu of water damage restoration options to avoid the need for many contractors.
If not done already, we locate and close the water shut off to the pipe if it is still leaking when our SERVPRO team arrives. Then one of our experienced project managers devises a multi-task plan to take your business from ruined to restored. We consult with your insurance carriers and the owner of the building as we take each step, our aim is to limit your out of pocket expenses while delivering the best results.
Standing water requires pumping or high-efficiency extraction, and SERVPRO has submersible pumps and wanded commercial wet vacuums ready for work on our service vehicles. Our technicians measure moisture levels and use scanning devices to locate any residual water within walls or other recessed areas. We may choose to remove small sections of wallboard or drill strategically placed holes to release hidden water. Air movers and dehumidifiers then assume the work of drying out surfaces soaked with moisture.
Speed is crucial as we assess and begin drying the hardwood floor, its aged patina an important part of your cozy ambiance. Wood absorbs moisture quickly and the consequent swelling causes warping, crowning, cupping, or buckling if not dried quickly. SERVPRO uses a variety of techniques recommended by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the industry’s best practices developing and maintaining organization. Drying mats pull water out of both the hardwood and subfloor layers. Subfloor drying is critical, so we may position air movers under the floor from a basement space or remove and lift some boards to get access to the damp lowest layer and start drying it thoroughly. Moisture monitoring is done at regular intervals throughout the process to ensure that we meet drying goals.
