What Items Are Most Vulnerable to Water Damage in Pleasant Hill Hotels?
Our Certified Technicians are Experts in their Field and Have the Latest Equipment to Remediate Your Commercial Water Damage
Flooding of any kind spells big trouble for businesses. Unfortunately, some buildings are at more of a risk than others. Hotels are substantially more vulnerable, for example, because they rely very heavily on their water supply. It gets moved through more than one main pipe.
It is directed through the building and into multiple rooms, each with its own plumbing. Wherever there is a shower, sink, or toilet, there is a danger of commercial water damage in Pleasant Hill. The good news is that SERVPRO has the right tools and techniques to chase water damage right out of your business.
Keep reading for information on the most vulnerable areas of your hotel and why our technicians make them a priority.
Usually, the most costly form of damage after flooding in a hotel is to carpets, curtains, and other soft furnishings. If there are several rooms on the ground floor, there is likely to be water intrusion in all or most of them.
Replacing all of the carpets is an expensive job, so our technicians try to dry and clean them if the liquid is Category One or Two. Sewage and liquids containing toxic chemicals render carpets unusable. They require speedy disposal for safety reasons.
In most cases, carpets are dried using dehumidifiers. Depending on the size of the rooms, SERVPRO activates 1-2 machines in each. The restoration team keeps a close eye on how much moisture is being extracted, in order to reach the optimal level of relative humidity.
Wallpaper and Paint
The other big problem after flooding is water stains in ground floor rooms. They typically only extend a few centimeters above the ground, but they are unsightly and require attention. If the plasterboard has been heavily saturated, we may need to cut the bottom section away.
It is replaced later after the repair team has dried out the interior wall cavity. Stubborn watermarks are easy to cover with paint. We also make sure to seal the stains first, so that no moisture rises through the new paint and becomes visible again.
Wallpaper tends to warp and become unusable upon contact with water. Normally, we recommend stripping damaged pieces and replacing them. It makes it easier to dry out the materials underneath, and we can arrange for a contractor to carry out the job for you.
