Variety Helps When Restoring Commercial Water Damage in Affected New Providence Bridal Shops

Water damage affecting stores can happen any time from accidental or negligent leaks. When that happens, you should focus on how to save items and restore the store to its preloss state. In a bridal shop, a wide range of issues can develop, including secondary damage affecting high-value items such as gowns. A response plan that relies on variety is likely to produce a better outcome.

Commercial water damage in your New Providence bridal shop is likely to affect many areas. While most of the damage may be from the water pooling on floors and other surfaces, there are other ways the incident can affect your store. Contents made of fabrics such as gowns have hygroscopic properties meaning they can easily absorb moisture from the air, which can ruin them. Our SERVPRO technicians anticipate such problems and can help by moving the contents from your facility or to a section of the property unaffected by the spill. We can also take further steps such as sealing doorways with plastic sheets to limit air movement between affected and unaffected areas, thus limiting the effects high levels of humidity might have on your contents.

The restoration process differs at different stages. Immediately after discovering the spill, removing water from visible surfaces is the main priority. Having efficient extraction equipment is crucial to ensure that no standing water remains in the structure after 24 hours. After dealing with standing water, there is a need to address water in concealed areas such as subfloors or wall cavities.  Our SERVPRO technicians have access to a wide variety of equipment, including high-pressure pumps, truck-mounted water extractors, and submersible pumps. We also have specialized cavity-drying systems, which help us remove moisture from concealed areas with minimal demolition.

Drying moisture remnants from the shop is necessary for comfort and preventing microbial growth. Various types of dehumidifiers can help dry the property to the desired level. Our SERVPRO technicians use different varieties of dehumidifiers, including conventional refrigerant, low grain refrigerant and desiccant dehumidifiers. Conventional ones are efficient when drying up to 55gpp humidity level. If we need further drying, we can use LGR dehumidifiers which can achieve levels as low 40gpp.

Water loss situations can be full of surprises, so preparation is necessary. Call SERVPRO of Western Union County at (908) 791-9177 to help provide a variety of solutions that make it, "Like it never even happened."
