SERVPRO Evaluates the Loss Conditions to Develop Appropriate Restoration Approaches

On discovering water intrusion at your New Providence retail store, you may expect that simply wiping wet areas and opening a couple of windows to air the place is sufficient intervention. However, if the spillage involves significant water amounts, your efforts may not be sufficient.

When planning water restoration for your New Providence retail store, you must pay attention to several factors to ensure your efforts bear fruit. The variety of materials in the affected areas matters since water spreads uniformly, but materials react differently when exposed to moisture. For instance, you should anticipate different effects on furnishings, structural materials, and stock items.  SERVPRO provides the technical knowledge to handle various materials during restoration.

Some of the expected restoration actions during an exercise include:

  • Water extraction
  • Manipulation of contents
  • Cleaning up different soils
  • Specialized drying of materials

The variety of work needed to complete the restoration process is what complicates it beyond your expectations. However, involving a professional from the start can help you take back control since the professional has a deeper understanding and sufficient resources. For instance, SERVPRO checks for any factors that might hinder restoration before starting the process.

Typical hindrances that can delay or stop the restoration process include:

  • Different materials cross-staining or soiling
  • Materials acting as moisture barriers delaying drying
  • Non-uniform drying of semi-porous materials

SERVPRO also takes simple steps to overcome any of the obstacles. For instance, our IICRC-certified technicians can readily and safely move your valuables, such as the stock items, from the shelves creating room for other restoration tasks. We can also evaluate the materials to establish whether any moisture barriers might cause delays. Removing wallpaper or perforating gloss paint are some simple actions that remove the barriers. We also have advanced extraction equipment to fast track the removal of any pooling water and drying wet materials.

SERVPRO of Western Union County handles any water restoration exercise professionally to eliminate soiling or moisture accumulation, "Like it never even happened." Call us at (908) 791-9177.
