Commercial water damage cleanup
When flooding and water damage occur at a commercial property, there is often the need for well trained individuals that can respond in a timely manner. Whether it is a small water damage cleanup or a large scale event, we work quickly to assess each unique situation and isolate the affected area. Generally, we are able to allow the inhabitants to continue to operate there business in assigned areas while we work on preserving, protecting and stopping further damage from occurring in the facility.
Recently, we had a severe thunderstorm pass over Gloucester county, dumping vast amounts of water in a very short amount of time. Several commercial buildings were impacted by water and sewage.
A call came in at approximately 7:30 PM on a Sunday. Our crews were onsite by 8:45 PM. They immediately got to work extracting water from the space. This continued until approximately 1:00 AM. We then started the necessary demolition. Our team removed the affected ceiling tiles, wet drywall, and wet insulation to allow us to properly dry the building. The space was large – approximately 2,300 square feet – so we set up more than forty air movers and six extra large dehumidifiers.
We worked with the occupants around there schedule. We worked in areas that they were not working in to allow them to continue to operate there business to avoid any additional lost revenue and/or productivity. After three days, we began to remove some of our equipment, but the drying process was still in progress. Everyone was grateful that we were able to assist them and allow them to keep their company doors open.
