Our Flood Damage Professionals Can Save Your West Palm Beach Childcare Center
Flood Damage In Your West Palm Beach Childcare Center
Commercial flood damage halts a business in its tracks until the property receives cleanup, disinfection, and any needed repairs. This is especially crucial in a business judged on its appearance of safety and cleanliness, such as a daycare center for children.
One aspect that works in favor of a West Palm Beach childcare center with commercial flood damage is the fact the facilities typically have a design and furnishings that make them fast to clean and disinfect for daily operations.
Scoping the Water Loss Area
SERVPRO technicians use advanced technology to determine all areas of elevated moisture. Removal of items in the floodwater-affected areas for immersion cleaning and disinfection also occurs. Much of the furniture in this type of business has a plastic or silicone base for daily cleaning at the end of each business day. These types of furnishings assist in limiting loss from groundwater as absorption does not occur. Containment to stop the possibility of cross-contamination is also necessary. Technicians most often use heavy plastic sheeting over doorways and vents.
Porous Items Require Removal
Items such as craft paper and stuffed animals need discarding as they have no potential for a return to sanitary standards for use by children in the daycare. If water wicked into sheetrock, technicians remove damaged building materials to halt further loss and hasten drying of the area.
Water Extraction and Drying
The removal of groundwater requires fast action to ensure it does the least amount of damage to the building. SERVPRO technicians utilize portable pumps and use squeegees as needed to ensure they remove the maximum amount of moisture before drying. If possible, tables and chairs dry in place raised on blocks.
In a business such as a daycare, the return to sanitary conditions for normal operations is vital. The technicians choose both antimicrobial and antibacterial solutions to ensure all surfaces receive a thorough hand-cleaning.
