Commercial Commercial Water Damage from Plumbing Problems in Your Phoenix Restaurant Leaking plumbing can cause extensive damage requiring a professional restoration company like SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Works Quickly to Restore Your Building after Plumbing Problems

Leaky pipes and fixtures in your Phoenix restaurant are common causes of water damage. In cases which are extreme, leaking pipes can erode soil underneath the foundation of your building and supportive piers, which can cause the whole structure to crack or shift. Besides high water bills, plumbing leaks can cause a variety of issues including structural damage. Drywall can become waterlogged, and flooring and subfloors can also be damaged by prolonged exposure to moisture.

When your restaurant in Phoenix has experienced plumbing problems that have created commercial water damage, it must be attended to right away to avoid more damage and to keep you, your workers, and your customers safe. At SERVPRO, we have all the necessary tools and training to help you out and get your business back on track.

Once we arrive at your building, the first step we take is to survey and assess the extent of the damage. We ensure the work area is safe and document any damage for insurance claims to be filed on your behalf.

SERVPRO staff uses heavy-duty extraction equipment to efficiently and quickly remove all the standing water. After this is done, any loose debris or ruined property can be removed safely. We use advanced dehumidifying and drying equipment to make sure all the excess moisture in your property is removed. This step is essential, as it prevents the growth of mold.

Any damage to your structure is then repaired, and if needed we work alongside professional contractors to do so. If there was no significant damage, we could also make small repairs.

We do a final sweep of the affected area to make sure walls, floors, ceilings and the entire area are free of water damage and debris. We also sanitize the area to make it safe again for everyone.

Commercial  Bronx borough of New York, Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018 The Fire quickly spread through the four-story building in the Bronx Tuesday morning. At least 12 people were injured. (FDNY)

New York Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro (NY'-groh) says all of the seven adults and nine children hurt in a Bronx fire are expected to be OK.

Investigators believe the fire started in a first-floor furniture store around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Residents from the apartments above fled, including a man who ran outside with no shirt and no shoes. Nearby, icicles hung from power lines.

Resident Erica Ortiz told WCBS that a window guard blocked a fire escape. She says she tried to kick it open, to no avail.

Over 200 firefighters battled the blaze.

The blaze comes only days after the deadliest residential fire to hit New York City in at least a quarter century swept through a Bronx apartment building, killing 12 people.

"I woke up my husband, my kids and said listen there's a fire in the building," a woman who lived at the address told ABC7NY. "By the time we opened the door in the hallway, there was black smoke."

Using Extractors For Commercial Water Removal in Phoenix

11/11/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Using Extractors For Commercial Water Removal in Phoenix SERVPRO technicians extract water from the top and from underneath water damaged carpets. Water extractors aid in achieving the goal of drying.

Our Technicians Arrive With Tools to Handle BOTH Large and Small Scale Water Damage Events

Besides boosting productivity, extractors are becoming increasingly popular in commercial water removal in Phoenix due to operator safety. These equipment are used in cleaning carpets and upholstery, as well as removing water from floors. They are usually made up of three main components -- vacuum system, pump, and heater -- all of which come into play when cleaning carpets and upholstery.
The task of commercial water removal in any Phoenix business requires professional services for maximum efficiency. At SERVPRO, we have a team of highly trained, IICRC-certified technicians who can relieve you of that stress. Our services are available 24/7, every day of the year, so you can reach us anytime.
There are many benefits of using an industrial grade extractor for commercial water removal, but the most important one is its deep cleaning capability. Our machines are effective with both high and low pile carpet, removing as much dirt and residue as possible.
Additionally, using carpet extractors allows SERVPRO professionals to deep clean specific areas of the water-damaged carpet. The massive water tank that comes with most models enables us to apply a cleaning solution to the fabric, ensuring that the carpet is thoroughly clean instead of just getting the dirt up. Heating technology helps to loosen dirt and grime from individual carpet strands. With the water drying within a couple of hours, this makes it a very practical water removal process.
Furthermore, the presence of a long wand ensures a great all-round cleanup process and reduces the need to relocate the extractor. As such, SERVPRO water damage technicians can remove excess water from a material by merely moving with the wand. Carpet extractors typically have a wide-mouthed wand that makes it easier to get closer to the base of the carpet as best as possible, regardless of the length of the pile.
Water extractors can be portable or truck-mounted. The former can be taken into the building and allows access to hard-to-reach areas, but the latter is more powerful and has its own power sources. Truck-mounted extractors are designed for both restorative cleaning and water removal in a water damage scenario.
Flooding can occur anytime and cause immense water damage. When it happens, SERVPRO of Litchfield / West Phoenix is just a short distance away and can respond quickly with commercial water removal equipment like the extractor. Call us today at (623) 594-6033.

Sprinkler Water Damage Restoration Services in Pheonix Stores

Commercial Sprinkler Water Damage Restoration Services in Pheonix Stores SERVPRO's Water Restoration Services Keep Phoenix Stores and Businesses Open

SERVPRO Is the Answer to Mitigating Commercial Water Damage in Your Business

Sprinkler systems are vital in Phoenix commercial properties, for fire protection. They save millions of dollars in insurance savings, code & ordinance compliance, and business continuity. However, as useful as they can be in minimizing fire damage, the wet mess they leave behind is like trading one disaster for another. The excess water can penetrate the walls, carpets, and various surfaces, leading to moisture damage, mold issues, and ultimately, bad odors.
The first step to safeguard your property is hiring a commercial water damage restoration company in Phoenix such as SERVPRO. As an IICRC approved franchise, we have the tools and means to address all water damage and eliminate future incidents. Our technicians are adequately equipped to assess the existing property damage and formulate a strategy to return your items to preloss conditions, "Like it never even happened."
Water damage from sprinkler systems can include standing water, mold & mildew growth, wet office materials such as upholstery and carpeting, and moisture damage on building materials such as drywall. To prevent further damage to possessions made from porous surfaces such as wood and clothing, our specialists assemble and clear these items out of the building as a pack-out if no dry staging areas are available.
We may have to replace some of the items, depending on the level of water damage and their ability to be salvaged. After securing the property, SERVPRO technicians commence the water removal process. This part involves using various water extraction equipment such as air movers, dehumidifiers, and water pumps. Fans and dehumidifiers are remarkably effective at drying the area to prevent mold and mildew development.
If part of the structure, such as drywall, sustained water damage, our professionals use different techniques to restore the area. In some cases, this may require additional cleaning services or construction. Indeed, drying multiple layers of drywall takes a few days. During this time, we use a moisture tester to monitor the drying process. If some of the ceiling tiles sustained water damage, we replace them most of the time. Excess water on tiles tends to leave stains and ultimately causes them to bow.
Water damage from a sprinkler system can have an adverse impact on your business. If it happens, you can rely on SERVPRO of Litchfield / West Phoenix for 24/7 commercial water damage restoration services. As part of your Litchfield and West Phoenix community, we can arrive promptly to salvage your property. Call us anytime at (623) 594-6033.

Our team also sets out the ideal humidity that we want to reach. Moisture content and humidity readings, when taken together, give a complete picture. We use a moisture meter to measure and track moisture content, and a thermo-hygrometer to tell us the humidity of the air.
Our professionals use a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your coffee shop, including the floors, walls, carpet, and furniture. We monitor progress as we go and do not stop until we reach our drying goal.
