Cleaning up after a storm causes damage to your business
There can be a thousand reasons for a flood to happen in a commercial building. In most storm situations, there will be roof damage or flooding from the ground. In both cases the insurance will have most of the damaged materials removed because of the contamination brought on by the source of the water.
SERVPRO of Englewood/East Littleton will start by extracting the water either using a sump pump of a powerful truck mounted extractor. The wet materials will then be cut out. In this instance we had to rent other equipment to assist us with the damaged material removal. An EPA registered disinfectant is then used on the bare flooring and bare studs before we place air movers to start the drying process. Depending on the amount of wet materials drying could take as little as three days to a week.
