When Flooding Causes Damage To Your Lilburn Property, Our Technicians Are Ready 24/7!
SERVPRO Treats Doctor's Office In Lilburn With Commercial Flood Damage
There could be a loose comparison to a property in need of water damage restoration, much like a sick patient visits a doctor to become well. Our technicians find the source of the issues, causes of the damage and fix it through proprietary cleaning and restoration services.
SERVPRO responded to a call from a physician's office in Lilburn with commercial flood damage caused by improper roof drainage from damaged gutters which directed water into the property instead of diverting it away. What had been a slight problem became exacerbated by the regionally heavy storms. In cases where there is damage to the structure, we do different types of temporary repairs such as:
• Tarping over damaged roofing to stop any further water coming in.
• Packing out paperwork and files to secure storage
• Moving out furnishings as needed during the mitigation process
The front of the building was affected with heavy saturation of the carpeting and reception room furnishings. Water entered via the ceiling, and our technicians drilled weep holes to assist with the airflow. We noted buckling of the sheetrock had not occurred, so there was restoration potential after drying, thus saving the owner the cost of replacement. The furniture was quickly packed out for cleaning and disinfection in another area. SERVPRO team members are certified as Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning Technicians and dried, cleaned and deodorized the cushions on the wet reception room chairs for reuse when the office reopened for patients.
Our certified Water Damage Restoration Technicians extracted water from the carpeting using weighted extraction wands and loosened one side to float it for complete drying with our air movers and followed up with hand cleaning and disinfection of affected surfaces. Because this is a business that caters to clients on-site, our certified Odor Control Technicians used ultra-low volume fogging to eliminate the residual water odors so there would be no reminders of the water damage when the office reopened.
When commercial flood damage strikes, SERVPRO of North Lilburn is available at (770) 709-3266 to work quickly and lessen the time until your business reopens and make your water loss incident “Like it never even happened.”
