During this time of decreased human presence, we recommend, if no one is present inside your commercial building, to have a person(s) assigned for periodic checks and property walks.

April Showers

As the rain showers set in, the concern for flooding arises. If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home’s structure. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.

There are a few tips for homeowners and business owners can do to prevent water damage.

  • Inspect your roof regularly, especially after heavy storms. Look for missing or loose shingles or any heavy wear.
  • You will want to clean your gutters to ensure proper drainage. By being proactive in cleaning your gutters, you can prevent your foundation from cracking your basement walls.
  • Check your sump pump yearly, and most importantly after heavy thunderstorms.
  • Regularly check your pipes to make sure there are no leaks.
  • Extra tip: Keep an eye on your water bill. If you notice your bill increasing, that could be a cause for concern, and you would want to check it out before any more damage occurs.

Flooded salon suite hall This salon suite flooded two stories from one rinsing station leak. Urgency is key.

Of all the disasters that could impact a business in North Collin County, TX, water damage is among the most common scenarios. It includes situations such as flooding, a leaking roof, a major storm, a sewage backup and more. Even seemingly innocuous clean water has a corrosive affect on materials and if left untreated can cause extensive damage. Dirty water from sewage pipes or flooding can be even more harmful and could have a deleterious effect on human health. In all instances, the services of a local water mitigation company are invaluable.

The Importance of a Fast Response

The saying "Faster to Any Size Disaster" defines our team and exemplifies the urgency necessary in an emergency. A rapid response that brings trained technicians to the site in less than four hours is the best way to limit damage caused by water. Some or all of the following steps may be needed to take care of the situation:

  • Inspection and damage assessment
  • Board-up or tarp services for security and to prevent further damage
  • Water removal or extraction
  • Mold remediation
  • Professional drying
  • Cleaning and sanitizing

Water can damage materials in as little as two days. The growth of mold can begin in a similar time frame and begin to spread into damp areas of the building. If broken pipes cause raw sewage to be present, this requires the removal of the dirty water to protect human health.

The Value of a Comprehensive Water Cleanup

To return the commercial property to its original condition, all steps in the cleanup process must be completed. Water damage can continue to produce negative effects if moisture remains behind walls and under floors. Odors can remain if the cleaning and sanitizing treatments did not follow the standards in place for professional restoration. It is especially important to remain vigilant concerning mold growth. A comprehensive and professional cleanup ensures the building is safe for workers and employees.

Our restoration process for water, fire, mold and cleaning

SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville Van in Murphy TX We travel all across Northeast Collin County and Greenville to service our customers!

When you experience a damage to your home, be sure the team you call in knows their stuff! SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville is highly trained and follows strict industry guide lines and we go through, this 6 step process to make your water loss, "Like it never even happened."

STEP 1

Emergency contact: Call SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville 972-548-6044

The restoration process begins when you call us. SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville is available 24 hours a day for water emergencies, large or small. When you are dealing with water damage, immediate action is crucial. Even a delay of a few hours can greatly increase the severity of the water damage.

When you call, we will ask several questions regarding your water damage emergency. These questions will help us determine what equipment and resources to bring, including how many trained SERVPRO Professionals may be needed.

STEP 2

INSPECTION & WATER DAMAGE ASSESSMENT:  When responding to a water damage emergency, we begin with a detailed inspection of your home or property, including a damage assessment. At this stage, our professionals are trying to determine the scope of the damage so that we can develop an appropriate plan of action.

STEP 3

WATER REMOVAL/ WATER EXTRACTION: After the inspection and damage assessment step, the water extraction process begins. This step removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons of water from your property.

STEP 4

DRYING & DEHUMIDIFICATION: Once the excess water has been removed, the floors and walls may appear dry, but a quick inspection will reveal they are wet to the touch. Nearly all building materials, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore retain water. This retained water can cause the materials to break down, warp, or cause mold damage.

STEP 5

CLEANING & SANITIZING: Your walls, flooring, and ceiling will most likely require professional cleaning services. In addition to cleaning your property’s structure, we will clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other restorable belongings damaged by the water. Most flooding and water damage also require professional odor removal and deodorization since wet materials have a very distinct odor.

STEP 6

RESTORATION: The final step, is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

Call SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville 972-548-6044 for all your Cleanup & Restoration needs.
