What Can Our Cutler Bay Office Expect From SERVPRO When It Comes To Water Damage?

Commercial Water Damage in Cutler Bay Real Estate Office Gets A Fast Turnaround.

A pipe break overnight in a local real estate office put the brakes on servicing potential homeowners until the commercial water damage got cleaned up. The property owner did not have any type of environmental monitoring on the security system. Hence, the leak flowed freely until the manager arrived to open the office with over half an inch of standing water in the front area of the office.

After immediately shutting off the water main, the office manager called SERVPRO to clean up the commercial water damage in the Cutler Bay office. The business could not reopen until it was dried and ready for clients again.

Scoping and Water Removal 

To do a complete job of water extraction, locating the migration path of the water loss needs to happen. It cannot get accomplished visually and requires the use of different types of moisture detection equipment to "see" behind walls, under floors, and determine if baseboards or carpet needs removal to extract and dry the area. 

Necessary Actions for Water Loss Cleanup

When water wicks into sheetrock, the deterioration is a rapid process. The techs measure above the waterline by several inches and cut it away to save as much of the wall as possible. This halts any further water loss to the sheetrock and leaves a clean edge for easy repairs after the completion of mitigation efforts. 

Limiting Disruptions to the Office

SERVPRO techs want to get the real estate office reopened as fast as possible; however, the property must be dry and clean for reopening. They remove forms and documents to another area of the office, so the highly humid conditions do not damage the paperwork. The desks and furnishings get raised on blocks and dried in place, so there is little to move back after drying. 

Prepping for Reopening

After the property confirms as dry, the technicians wipe down the surfaces with their cleaning agents. They also supply a report that details actions taken as well as the repairs needed to bring the business to its pre-loss condition. 

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 has certified techs available 24/7 to restore properties with commercial water damage and make the loss, "Like it never even happened."
