Are You Storing Water Damage in Your Cutler Ridge Self-Storage Facility?
Get Prompt Commercial Water Removal for Your Cutler Ridge Self-Storage Facility
Self-storage facilities have gained popularity in the last few decades. People use them to store items they do not have room for in their homes or businesses. These facilities offer a safe place to store items until the owner is ready to use or dispose of them. However, storage units also pose a threat of water damage.
The air conditioning system of a climate-controlled self-storage facility can malfunction and dump water into several storage units. In such a situation, seeking immediate commercial water removal for your Cutler Ridge self-storage facility can prevent costly destruction to the items stored in it. Water can ruin possessions like bedding, bookcases, mattresses, and bed frames completely. Moisture can also lead to mold infestation of the stored items. Mold can cause health problems and destroy papers, wood furniture, fabrics, and other porous materials.
One thing you should do when you notice signs of water intrusion is verifying the severity of the destruction. A simple check is not enough to establish the full extent of the issue. Water can soak into building materials far from where the instruction began without creating a visible sign of destruction. To establish how far the moisture or water has spread, you need special tools to measure moisture in building materials. Our SERVPRO team members use moisture meters to measure the moisture content of materials. With these details, we can concentrate on drying the affected materials.
We have the equipment and experience to minimize risks from hazards like weakened mezzanine floors that may collapse, mold spores, and exposure to fiberglass insulation. We can complete drying tasks in a manner that reduces the overall destruction and the possibility of future issues. Our Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASDs) can use several specialized tools to dry out your self-storage facility, including:
- Wet/dry vacuums to remove the stagnant water.
- Air movers and different dehumidifiers like the LGR desiccant dehumidifier to eliminate moisture from the building and its contents.
- Thermo-hygrometers to track the humidity in the storage units.
To save money and use storage units efficiently, customers may pack their items from wall to wall and from the floor to the ceiling. Drying such a storage unit poses a challenge. Our SERVPRO crew can also analyze and remove moisture-compromised possessions like furniture and separate the severely damaged ones from the ones with minimal water damage. Our technicians can also help you document the damage, including taking photos of the ruined areas and items to make it easier to file an insurance claim. We can also work with your insurance provider to manage the insurance paperwork and process.
