Commercial Water Damage from Standing Water in Canoga Park Office

When a pipe breaks in a building overnight, the potential for the water to pour into an office and leave behind a large amount of water damage can be significant. It is vital for cleanup of the water to occur it spreads and affects a larger area.

SERVPRO has an organized approach to the cleanup of commercial water damage in Canoga Park properties. Upon arrival, the technicians check to ensure the water is shut off and begin extraction efforts.

Advanced Moisture Detection
The technicians have the equipment to locate water under floors and behind walls. This scoping action is an integral part of water loss restoration as finding all areas of water migration assists with avoiding additional issues such as mold and musty odors.

Special Attention to Restoration vs. Replacement
Whenever possible, SERVPRO technicians try to restore items damaged by water through their various cleaning methods. Bacteria set up rapidly in standing water, and fast extraction is crucial to halt the degradation of the water quality from clean to gray to black rapidly.

Extraction Equipment
The portable pumps have the suction to pull even deeply embedded water out of the structure and carpet. The techs do several passes over the loss area to ensure they remove as much moisture as possible before drying. There is no delay in the cleaning up deep water, as the techs have access to submersible pumps.

Controlled Demolition as Needed
Sheetrock that has wicked moisture and shows signs of warping or buckling has no potential for restoration. Techs measure above the waterline by several inches and cut the damaged area away. This action halts the absorption of water and readies the wall for easy repairs. Industrial carpet and glued down tiles commonly delaminate after exposure to standing water. The techs inspect both types of flooring for the possibility of reuse through their cleaning and restoration methods.

Limit Disruptions During Mitigation
Whenever possible, SERVPRO dries the contents in place to limit disruptions to the office. This process works in favor of companies as there is very little to do after SERVPRO completes the restoration other than reopening and getting back to business.

SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills at (818) 998-1500 can be on-site quickly to cleanup commercial water damage and restore the property to its preloss condition, “Like it never even happened.”
