SERVPRO Handles Commercial Water Cleanup in Jacksonville 

I have water damage in my commercial building, which has ruined some structures and items. Who can help me restore the property to avoid disrupting the flow of services to customers?

You can count on SERVPRO to perform the necessary cleanup and repairs for water damage of any severity. We offer commercial water cleanup in Jacksonville to restore properties to their initial condition. With our services, your customers and employees can access the property after a short time. We can help you prevent revenue losses that can add up to the cost of cleanup and restoration.

Our restorers are highly qualified to evaluate your property and clean everything up. Before restorers get your property under their control, it is advisable that you:

  • Find out what is causing the leakage and turn off the water to avoid escalation of the water damage. Immediately contact SERVPRO so that we can extract the water and mitigate the damages.
  • Stay away from the rooms with standing water until you know the electricity is off.
  • When it is safe to get in, get your items, the vital documents, and unaffected furnishings.
  • Ensure you have PPEs like masks when entering the building to avoid contamination.
  • Keep watch of the area affected to prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing it.

Our SERVPRO team can devise a plan to clean up your property to ensure it is clean and dry before restoring it to its preloss condition. We have non-penetrative moisture meters that help us detect areas of high moisture concentration without tearing down walls, which allows us to conduct a faster and more cost-effective operation.

SERVPRO also has centrifugal air movers that blow dry air to affected areas to accelerate the evaporation rate, drying your commercial property faster. Air movers operate in different positions, providing flexibility in how restorers direct airflow. We also have devices that enable us to recover vital documents and records that the water did not severely damage so that you don’t have to start from scratch.

Fire Restoration Makes Your Jacksonville Warehouse Sound Again

Risk to Investments Negated by Fire Restoration

After extinguishing a blazing fire and keeping goods and equipment from burning, you might feel your Jacksonville business is safe. However, damage can continue to happen, increasing your losses. Our fire restoration crew knows how to keep damage from worsening.

Commercial buildings in Jacksonville need fire restoration and thorough cleaning after a fire, especially one where synthetic materials burned. Restoring your warehouse or other storage facility means a fresh start, one in which your inventory, equipment, workers, and everything else works as it should. 

Businesses know they can rely on SERVPRO’s fire restoration services for these and other reasons:

  • Tearing out charred materials, including roofing materials, and rebuilding of same components,
  • Clearing surfaces and even the air, including your HVAC system, of soot and caustic gasses formed during the fire, and
  • The basics of protective measures can keep immediate damages at a standstill.

When roofing materials sustain damage during high heat, they can become brittle and weak. Keeping roofing or ceiling panels from breaking apart and falling onto anything below keeps stuff from becoming further damaged. These components can contain sharp edges, nails, or other brackets that can scratch paint and different finishes on equipment or dent packaging of finished products.

Our specialized cleaning tools remove soot from surfaces, including the interior of your ventilation system. Air scrubbers help to eliminate even more soot particles. Air movers can help remove gases by pushing air outside; negative air pressure chambers can also help with this if needed.

Boarding up doorways, windows, or other openings can help keep security at an appropriate level. Tarps can prevent rainwater from getting inside until we can rebuild damaged structures.

In addition to these, SERVPRO also offers temporary warehouse space. When fire damage and outages of electrical power both happen simultaneously, we can provide our own power, keeping us on schedule and helping your company get back on track as quickly as possible.

Contact us, SERVPRO of Pender / West Onslow Counties, at (910) 319-0600 for the tailored, exact services you need to keep your business going.

Water Extraction from Restaurants in Jacksonville is Possible

Plumbing Issues Can Derail Business Operations in Jacksonville Restaurants When Left Unattended

Burst pipes and leaky plumbing can cause severe damage in a Jacksonville business, especially if left unattended. If the leak is gradual and takes a long time to be discovered, the risk of mold compounds the direct damage caused by water and excess humidity. When water damage happens, the threat to inventory, equipment, and your ability to serve restaurant patrons is real and quantifiable, so quickly acting is essential to protecting your bottom line.

If water extraction is what your Jacksonville restaurant needs, look no further than SERVPRO for help. Upon arrival, our team of experts focuses on assessing the scope of the damage and developing a feasible work plan to extract water, dry the space, and salvage as much as possible. We know that documentation is essential within a business setting, so we coordinate with you to make ourselves a resource during the insurance claim process. We also know that efficiency is pivotal in mitigating your losses, so we pursue the most cost and time-effective solutions for your benefit.

Water extraction goes beyond plugging in a dehumidifier and letting it take care of the problem. When our SERVPRO staff gets involved, we pay close attention to the following steps to achieve the best results:

  • Water removal with submersible and truck-mounted pumps joined by wand extractors and specialized equipment. Flooring removal may be necessary for this step if it is unsalvageable.
  • Humidity control with the help of air movers and dehumidifiers. Restoring normal humidity levels helps us stop secondary damage and mold spread.
  • Surface cleaning with high-pressure cleaners and EPA-approved cleaning solutions to help disinfect and decontaminate thoroughly.

SERVPRO of Pender/ West Onslow Counties is a resource for local business owners, and we are just a quick phone call away. Reach out to us by dialing (910) 319-0600 and let us leave your restaurant “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Water Extraction Cleans Wet Floors

Water damage can impact businesses at any time, and unfortunately, many of these events can occur at the most inconvenient times possible. Fast-acting mitigation is necessary to ensure that Jacksonville businesses can reopen as quickly as possible for their employees, vendors, and customers. Flooring is particularly vulnerable and can create concerns like efflorescence, mold, or subflooring damage.

Jacksonville SERVPRO water restoration technicians use EPA-registered, OSHA-approved biocides to remove microbes associated with water damage from structural materials and assets. Techs can also implement hot water extraction, drying, and deodorization to restore water-affected flooring and drywall, among other materials. 

Water Cleanup for Commercial Carpet, Tile, and Concrete

SERVPRO technicians can remediate water damage and its effects on various flooring surfaces with careful water removal and drying strategies. These include:

  • Extracting water damage from carpeting with hot water extractors and specialized carpet wands. Carpet tiles may prove more vulnerable and can often prove less costly to replace than repair after absorbing high volumes of water
  • The ceramic tile itself is highly water-resistant, but moisture can create mold growth in grout and cause the material to swell and warp. This deformation of tile grout can cause tiles to delaminate or crack. SERVPRO can respond with proprietary tile and grout cleaners, as well as drying equipment, that can minimize potential damage to tile flooring
  • Concrete is typically very hardy, but water can aggravate cracks in flooring and encourage the growth of chalky mineral deposits called efflorescence. SERVPRO techs can address these concerns with extraction, drying, potential repairs, and powerful floor scrubbers

Business owners can call SERVPRO of Pender / West Onslow Counties at (910) 319-0600. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster and committed to providing emergency-response mitigation.

SERVPRO’s Water Mitigation Strategies Help Jacksonville Businesses Bounce Back!

With all the things a business owner has on their plate daily, preparing for the possibility of an emergency like water damage should be near the top of the list. A leaking roof from storms, flooding, or burst pipes are just a few of the many ways that water can impact your Jacksonville business. Failing to address it as soon as possible leaves you open to immense costs and an insane amount of damage and loss. SERVPRO offers trusted water mitigation and restoration to minimize your downtime while helping you to resume operations faster.

One of the more significant issues businesses face regarding commercial water damage is how quickly bacteria and mold growth can spread within the building. Not only that, but you have wood swelling, flooring that buckles, saturated drywall, and other materials or inventory taking on water. These reasons are why water mitigation efforts in Jacksonville are so important.

SERVPRO’s process for water mitigation and restoration includes:

  • Assessment of your commercial building for water damage and all areas where moisture migrated.
  • Restoration of the building and recovery depending on the severity of water damage to flooring, walls, and other materials.
  • Removal of items to determine salvageability includes documents, equipment, books, furnishings, computers, and anything impacted by water.
  • After removing salvageable items, cleaning, sanitizing, and reconstruction begins.

The first order of business when water damage develops within your commercial space is to contact our professional restoration team. You can also contact your insurance provider to let them know the incident occurred. Throughout mitigation and restoration efforts, we help keep detailed documentation to help facilitate your insurance claim.

Give us a call at SERVPRO of Pender/West Onslow Counties today at (910) 319-0600. We can send a crew out as soon as possible to begin commercial water mitigation efforts.

Special Flooring Requires Fast Water Removal in Jacksonville Gyms

Closeup of water damaged linoleum tiles Water damaged flooring in your business? No worries! SERVPRO can handle water remediation for all types of floors.

Water Removal Services are Integral for the Rapid Response SERVPRO Provides Jacksonville Businesses

Gyms and recreational centers are a frequent addition to the neighborhoods of Jacksonville and its surrounding communities. When water damages threaten the structural integrity of these facilities or prevent proper function, our SERVPRO team can respond fast to help. We are leading restoration professionals who arrive with top industry tools for extraction, drying, and cleaning. 

Gym and Exercise Floors

The rubber flooring typically used in exercise space can make water damage removal in Jacksonville facilities potentially easier to manage. These materials are mostly installed for shock absorbance and odor defense but lack the needed porosity for standing water to penetrate easily. Often water damage in these rooms requires surface cleanup and extraction only. 

Court Flooring 

Basketball courts and other athletic arenas constructed of this similar maple wood or natural hardwood material require special attention when affected by standing water. Removal of water on the surface might seem straightforward. Still, when moisture penetrates the finish on the court and gets into or underneath the plank, immediate drying steps are necessary to dry the court through capillary suction with tools like:

  • Polypropylene sheeting
  • Centrifugal air movers
  • Drying mats
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers

Linoleum Tilework

In many recreational complexes and multi-use gyms, linoleum tile gets installed in the hallways and communal areas. Linoleum is a relatively cheap glue-down option against concrete subflooring. Water exposure can loosen these adhered units and require them to be cleaned and reinstalled.  

Various material types are impacted differently by direct exposure to standing water or flooding. Having a team educated in the necessary repairs and mitigation actions can get your doors open again more quickly. Our SERVPRO of Pender / West Onslow Counties team is here to help when you call (910) 319-0600.
