Let SERVPRO Lift Some of the Stress Surrounding Water Damage Repair for Your Kent Warehouse

Commercial building owners in Kent often rely on their cleaning staff for entry-level water loss response. This can be a good work-around for the short term. Still, professional water remediators must review the situation to ensure that all hidden water and absorbed moisture is addressed. Failure to remove all water and dry the structural components exposes your business to the risk of permanent water damage and secondary concerns like mold growth. 

How Can I Be Sure the Entirety of the Water Damage Is Found and Remedied?

When a supply line bursts in your Kent warehouse, water damage repair requirements guide your next moves. You have a tight timeline because water’s corrosive action is immediate and progressive. Unremoved water or high moisture levels in porous materials also host mold growth if not managed in the first 24 to 48 hours. We do not rely solely on a visual inspection, but also leverage our training from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to locate water that migrated from the pipe break using moisture detection tools and infrared imaging.

How Can Vast Amounts of Water Be Removed from a Large Warehouse Space?

One benefit of teaming with SERVPRO is our scalable workforce and equipment inventory. It is not fiscally sustainable for your company to own and store a fleet of water damage repair equipment nor employ dozens of staff awaiting a water emergency. On the other hand, our ability to respond fast and with adequate resources is precisely why we exist, to help our community business partners. To that end, our crew:

  • Assesses the scenario, including performing a safety inspection and moisture/fluids detection
  • Positions and operates appropriate quantities of water removal equipment, including:
  • Pumps
  • Truck-mounted extractors (each capable of removing 36,000 gallons daily)
  • Portable extraction units for recessed and otherwise confined spaces
  • Performs controlled demolition such as flood cuts of drywall between wall studs and drilled or sawn holes in other structures to release water using our construction division crew later for repairs 
  • Plans and implements structural drying with heat, air movers, and dehumidifiers 

Contact SERVPRO of Kent when a water damage repair situation has your cleaning crews drowning. The additional trained workers and equipment are just a call away at (253) 850-1500.

Need Commercial Fire Damage Repair and Restoration in Kent – Call SERVPRO

Commercial fires in Kent can be devastating for any business. Employees are out of work. Your business comes to a standstill, customer orders cannot be met, and all of the finished and unfinished products may be damaged by the fire or from water damage caused by sprinklers and the fire department. With no revenue from sales to your customers, paying your suppliers and restarting your business can be very challenging.

SERVPRO provides commercial fire damage restoration services in Kent and surrounding areas. We also offer controlled demolition and building reconstruction services to return our customers to normal operation as fast as possible. Our team can be onsite in less than four hours from your call, and we get to work as soon as the fire department gives us the all-clear to enter the building.

Every fire is different, with many small fires causing small amounts of fire damage and distributing smoke and soot throughout the building. Sprinklers and water soak many areas within the establishment. We can remove the fire-damaged materials and begin cleaning all surfaces and contents covered in soot and smoke residues.

Recovered materials, finished and unfinished goods can be recovered, cleaned, and dried. These items can be held in a staging area until all of the work is complete. Many of our customers reinstate their business operations from the staging area and provide temporary service to their customers from the staging area.

The services provided by SERVPRO to commercial customers experiencing fire damage include:

  • Controlled fire damage demolition
  • Fire damage repair and restoration
  • Smoke damage cleanup and staging area management

Call the commercial fire damage repair & restoration specialists at SERVPRO of Kent and nearby areas for fire damage assistance. We can help 24/7. Call (253) 850-1500.

Post-fire Damage Restoration in Kent Shops Must Tackle Several Pressing Concerns

Fires can happen from several sources, so it is important to determine the extent of the damage as soon as their team arrives. We have experienced professionals that can quickly scope the job and begin a custom restoration strategy that works with the needs of your insurance provider to get your doors open again fast.

Removing Bulk Materials and Damaged Contents

Among the initial emergency services for fire damage restoration in Kent shops is eliminating fire debris and ruined contents. Directly impacted wares and inventory from your shop are rarely salvageable, so we must work fast to safely remove these contents from the premises to begin vital air quality improvement and restoration processes.

Containing the Damaged Areas

Containment is one of the most vital services involved in effective fire restoration. It is critical to prevent post-fire effects like soot and odors throughout the property. We utilize physical barriers to create isolated zones for efficient disaster restoration management. Our installed systems to contain fire effects help by:

  • Preventing soot movement
  • Keeping odors contained
  • Allowing the business to operate when possible

Clearing Residues from Surfaces

Soot and smoke residues create volatile environments for employees and customers. We must address these concerns as soon as possible to prevent the situation from getting worse, such as soot deposits occurring on more of the inventory or surfaces in the building. We have dry and wet cleaning strategies to dissolve or emulsify the soil deposits on affected materials to protect these underlying substrates when possible. 

A few actions should begin as soon as possible to effectively keep your doors open after a fire loss incident. Our focus is to keep you in business or to open your doors again as quickly as possible after a disaster. Trust our SERVPRO of Kent team to help however you need when you call (253) 850-1500.
