Commercial Water Damage In West Palm Often Requires Removing Standing Water

One day everything could be fine, and then before you know it, a pipe breaks inside your West Palm automobile repair shop. If the plumbing failure occurs overnight, you could go to your place of business first thing in the morning and realize that you need to call in a professional company such as SERVPRO to conduct commercial water removal on your property. The quicker you start mitigation efforts, the less expensive the project may be.

Especially if the water gets deep as it leaks overnight, your commercial water removal project in West Palm may become excessive. Even a small crack inside one of your pipes can cause many gallons to leak out into your repair shop. Since most repair shops have hard surface floors like concrete, the liquid can build up fast and spread far from the actual leak source. When this occurs, our SERVPRO technicians can help you prevent problems from getting worse for your business.

If your repair shop did flood, standing water could create other secondary problems if not treated right away. Water can ruin your lifts or other equipment and possibly cause your mechanics' tools or toolboxes to rust. An excessive amount of liquid H2O can also cause humidity levels to rise, which can create issues throughout your company's building.

The first step our SERVPRO crew always takes is to extract moisture while it is still a liquid. Once moisture soaks into any porous contents and building materials or evaporates into the air, it gets much harder to remove. We can start by setting up a submersible pump to vacuum up deep standing water and put it into one of your building's sewage drains. If the water is not too deep, less than an inch, we can use squeegees to push the water to the exterior vial, the bay windows. Next, we can remove the remaining liquid by mopping it up off your concrete floor.

If the problem inside your shop is severe, we can implement applied structural drying or ASD methods to dry out your building's structural components. We can use air movers to create air circulation and dehumidifiers to reduce indoor humidity levels. During severe cases where there is a large amount of wet concrete, we can implement desiccant dehumidifiers to help dry out your slightly porous concrete floors. This process may take several days to draw out the moisture and prevent degradation to this important work surface.

If your car repair facility ever suffers from a pipe break, call SERVPRO of Lake Worth at (561) 588-9777 24/7.  We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
