SERVPRO Technicians are Experts in Their Field of Remediating Water Damage on Your Property

After an extended period of working for someone else, starting your own business can be a dream come true for many people. Owning the company itself and the building you will conduct your business in is even more pleasant. Finding out that there are substantial problems with your new building can put a real ding in your happiness. Defects that are not superficial or aesthetic but caused by water can signal much more severe problems. Water damage can lead to structural deficiencies and increased microbial activity. A smelly, tattered-looking office is not a setting conducive to selling other real estate to potential buyers and can seriously hurt your profit margins.

Office buildings are often remodeled before being listed, hiding existing commercial water damage in Cutler Bay. Remodeling does not remove the damage, however. It usually leaves new owners in the dark about such issues, posing risks that aren't apparent until after the purchase has been finalized and the new owner has moved in. Other real estate agents you work with regularly can only disclose facts about the building's condition that the seller has told them about, which can leave you with only legal options to pursue after repair work has been completed.

SERVPRO can help you repair the building to prevent secondary water damage from becoming an issue and help document the damage's extent. Repair costs related to existing damage that was never disclosed are often recoverable if proper documentation is presented. Because we know you want to open your agency as soon as possible, we can work around your day-to-day operations if you wish.

Suppose you prefer to have new carpeting installed. In that case, our Commercial Carpet Maintenance Technician (CCMT) can provide this service and then follow up by shampooing the carpet to remove the high level of chemicals left behind by the manufacturing process. While the scent from new carpets is not a health risk, it can still be unpleasant. Removing or decreasing its strength is often more desirable than allowing it to remain.

Water damage that affects commercial settings should be taken as seriously as it would if that damage was found in your home. Working in any building, office, or home can be detrimental to your health and safety if there are unattended issues from water damage. Even if you don't see standing water in your business, this can be true. Our technicians have certifications in Commercial Drying (CDS) and Water Damage Restoration (WRT). They are always available to make sure that you can open for business as planned and then remain open so you can serve your clients without interruption.

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 is always ready to take your call, and we can arrive as early as one hour afterward. Let us help you keep your business healthy from the start by ridding the structure of problems that can become substantial detrimental issues later.
