SERVPRO Can Assist You in Handling Commercial Flood Damage in Seattle

Flood damage in a commercial property is an unfortunate event that can stop your business operations and affect the health of the occupants. It can also be more extensive than in residential buildings, given the complexity and size of the mechanical systems in commercial buildings. Typically, these buildings have larger structures, more potentially expensive equipment, and more people than residential properties. Fortunately, if you hire SERVPRO, you can restore your business property within a short time.

We have the necessary expertise to perform commercial flood damage on your Seattle property. Flood water is categorized as black water because it contains harmful bacteria, unsanitary agents, and fungi. Our SERVPRO team can address the contamination and ensure that your health and safety are protected throughout the cleanup process. The presence of water sustains and promotes microbial growth. The fundamental steps in remediation or mitigation are: 

  • Eliminating moisture by drying the environment and minimizing humidity levels
  • Removing contaminated materials 

It is vital to dry your commercial building and its contents fast to prevent additional destruction like equipment loss. Most enterprises use electronics for stock-keeping, payment, or managing employee hours, and it is costly to replace them. Large items such as custom workstations can be harder to supply because they might be special orders. Floodwater can also ruin things such as supplies or stock required for the operation of a business. Potential losses can also include parts of your building such as ceiling, drywall, fixtures, or flooring. Our SERVPRO technicians focus on drying the affected structure quickly to minimize moisture levels. There are four factors affect the amount of time required for drying. They include: 

  • Amount of water that needs to evaporate
  • Air movement
  • Humidity 
  • Temperature

Our SERVPRO team can use air movers and dehumidifiers to eliminate moisture from your property. We utilize dehumidifiers to pull water vapor from the air and reduce relative humidity. As moisture evaporates, the dehumidifiers continue removing it from the air until the contents and structures are dry. 

If you need commercial flood restoration services, call SERVPRO of Central Seattle at (206) 282-9500. We have the skill and equipment to make the flooding incident seem “Like it never even happened.”
