Removing Commercial Water Damage in Jacksonville
Learn How SERVPRO Tackles Commercial Water Damage in Jacksonville
Jacksonville business owners have to deal with the same disasters as homeowners. The financial effects can be much higher and affect many more people.
There are a lot of small factory operations in Florida. When commercial water damage strikes a Jacksonville operation, SERVPRO technicians understand that every employee depends on us, just like the business owner. Every day the business is shut down means a loss of income for everybody. If the doors remain closed for too many days, people have to either find new work or risk losing their homes.
In any factory setting, the emphasis is going to be on clearing outstanding water and drying out the machinery and the facility. To get this done quickly, we use pumps and extraction wands to remove the water. SERVPRO restoration teams use dehumidifiers, air movers, and exhaust fans to dry out the building and equipment. In case the building electrical system was compromised, we also keep an inventory of portable generators to ensure continuous power support.
If standing water is deeper than a couple of inches, we start with the pumps. Our teams can clear it out from a small to a medium-sized factory in a day. When the pumps have drawn out everything they can, we switch to the extraction wands.
These devices are similar to the water-vac many residents have in their garages, but our devices are more powerful and can be adjusted depending on the surface and the amount of water on it. The wands are what we use to get under machinery and storage racks to remove as much water as possible. The extraction process usually takes a day or two.
As we clear the water, other team members are preparing to dry things out. Once the wands are in operation, we turn on the dehumidifiers to draw out moisture from the air inside the facility. Each machine we put in place can remove up to 25 gallons of water per day from the atmosphere.
Once we eliminate any remaining puddles of water, technicians set-up air movers to force warm, dry air across the surface of the floor and underneath machinery and other facility property. They work in conjunction with the exhaust fans, which we install at doors and windows to draw out the cooler, damp air and blow it outside.
