Recovery Efforts For Many Disasters Begins With Commercial Water Removal For Cutler Bay Food Stores
Commercial Water Removal
Florida is surrounded by ocean on the majority of its border, and the many lakes found in our beautiful state make time on or near the water an even more substantial part of most people's lives. Water can become a serious problem, when it is in the wrong place, which can happen in various circumstances and for just as many different reasons.
When your Cutler Bay health food store sustains any commercial water damage, water removal is most often the primary step in recovery efforts. Firefighters often use thousands of gallons of water to squelch a fire, bathroom water line breaks and malfunctioning sprinklers can flood an area with hundreds of gallons in a short period, and our own climate can backfire on us and send hurricanes and storms our way. Each of these disasters needs water removal before any other restorative or recovery efforts start.
When standing water has collected, one of the first things that must be done is ensuring the safety of those in the area. Not only are electrical shocks possible, but slipping, tripping, or even becoming entangled in hidden debris are all potential hazards. SERVPRO has extensive experience in these highly dangerous situations and can guide you every step of the way. Because removing the majority of the water is done with a truck, danger to our technicians is greatly reduced. As the water's level drops, hazards can be seen much more easily. Our hand-held extraction units further minimize the amount of standing water to the point where we can start the work of restoring your business.
Drying completely does take time, and during the process, we can help you assess the damage to your inventory. Health regulations require that all foodstuffs contaminated by water be disposed of, so detailed inventory sheets can help you not only restock correctly but also provide sufficient documentation to your insurance agent. Recovery from such horrible disasters are much more than the building itself – it is also the look and feel of your store.
At SERVPRO of Cutler Bay, we can help you get things back to how they were before so that it is “Like it never even happened.” Doing so can help you continue serving your customers what they have come to depend on you for the most, a vital and important part of our community's economy and culture.
