Commercial Water Removal Prevents Permanent Damage Brought on by Fire Sprinklers in East Arlington
When Water Strikes Your Bowling Alley, Call SERVPRO for a Perfect Score
Bowling is a sport enjoyed by people of all ages and is often used as a form of exercise by those who otherwise would not be able to participate in team sports regularly. Developing the true skill to play well requires time, and many people take pride in their scores. An alley that reduces scores because of unevenness won't be popular, and this can affect your overall profits. It doesn't take much water to cause warping and buckling in the hardwood, and even one sprinkler can damage several alleys at one time.
East Arlington bowling centers facing potential profit losses because of water damage can reduce these losses with water removal services. Bowling centers have a diverse clientele, and some have been known to attempt to smoke in areas that they shouldn't. This smoking can cause sprinkler systems to spray water everywhere, including areas where there never was any smoke.
SERVPRO technicians have IICRC training and certification in both residential and commercial water removal. When we receive a call for a water emergency, we can respond within a short time. Every minute counts against you when water is present, creating additional damage as the seconds tick away. Sprinkler water left on surfaces can seep into the tiniest cracks very rapidly. Carpeting in areas can also absorb and hold moisture. Typically, the finished surfaces of the hardwood lanes will not readily absorb water, but staining can also occur.
While painted concrete columns and walls, bowling ball return chutes, and plastic seats and tables can be wiped down to sufficiently dry them, it is the counters, wooden structures, and those made of composite materials that will need fast and skillful attention for preserving them. Replacing these can be much more costly than mitigation. Custom items will also require additional time for replacements to be made. When there is a fine line between replacing or restoring costs, our professionals will discuss this with you before proceeding.
To return your facility's environment to an acceptable moisture level, we will first extract as much liquid water as possible. This removal will mainly be from the floors and non-porous areas. Extraction with portable units will remove a substantial amount, but dryness cannot be achieved by this method alone. Special mats placed by our Wood Floor Maintenance Technician (WFMT) on lanes will create a vacuum, sucking up moisture and preventing damage and return them to pristine condition again.
We value your business and want to assure you that we will restore yours as if it were our own. Calling us, SERVPRO of Arlington at (904) 721-2230 can help minimize the frustration, losses in profit, and water damages you and your business experience.
