Flooded Business? Let Us Help with Your Hassle
Flooding is an absolute catastrophe for business owners. It’s not just sopping up water, its handling wet furniture, drapery, electronics, doors, trim, and other structural elements that have water damage. Your first thought may be to get rid of everything and start new, but some of your assets are salvageable. That’s where our pros at SERVPRO of Toledo West come in.
Dry and Sort
If your flood was caused by a broken pipe, you can have a small sigh of relief knowing you don’t have to deal with black water. Despite that, you may still have the possibility of mold spread, so it is important to thoroughly dry out anything affected by the water. Once everything has been dried out, you’ll next want to inspect and sort everything to determine what can be saved and what can’t. Items that may need to be thrown out include porous materials that can’t be properly dried or cleaned and fabrics that show signs of discoloration.
Clean the Damage
Having your investments sorted following a flood will give you a better understanding of the actual damages and loss your business has faced. When it comes to cleaning items yourself, remember that dry cleaning is not just for clothes. Furniture, upholstery, and draperies can be made good as new through dry cleaning services. For everything else, consider the following tips to make for an easier process:
- Organize items based on cleaning methods, such as hand or machine wash
- Use a disinfectant on furniture, walls, and floors to prevent mold growth
- Wash items in the hottest water possible to remove contaminants
- Use a professional water damage restoration service to ensure there is no interior damage
A flooded company is a hassle, but it does not have to leave a long-term impact on your business. If you experience water damage, call our professionals to help you sort it out!
