How Do I Clean Up a Water Loss in My Somerset Office Correctly?
Water Loss in My Somerset Office
Even smaller water losses in the kitchen/break areas of your office might not be devastating but require the experience and expertise of our team to make sure it does not get worse.
Regardless of the size of a water loss incident in your Somerset office building, there are many distinct reasons why many would choose to have the damage professionally restored. Our SERVPRO professionals are available 24/7 to help with any water emergencies that could impact your property. This response can prevent the situation from getting out of control and damaging many of the structural elements and fixtures that could become exposed in the kitchen area of your office building.
Water cleanup for your Somerset structure requires multiple tasks to occur. We have qualified cleaning technicians available to help oversee the restoration of your property from the initial job scoping and mitigation phases through the final cleaning touches for the structure after the restoration completes. As with any loss incident, our professionals must first determine the extent of the damage and what actions must get taken to return the property to preloss condition. Even with seemingly smaller loss conditions, the actual impact could be worse than the surface might indicate.
How Bad is the Damage?
We understand how valuable time is for your company and its staff. We do not waste our efforts offering services that your property does not need. We can determine what is necessary quickly through a job scoping phase. Our project manager can determine the extent of the water damage and its path of migration during this initial evaluation of your property. By tracking moisture from the source, we can identify moisture pockets and damp areas that must get addressed with thorough drying practices to come. Several of the sophisticated tools that we use to identify these moisture pockets and track the movement of water beyond the surface include:
• Moisture Detection Tools
• Thermal Imagery
• Thorough Visual Inspection
Does SERVPRO Do Repairs?
One of our team's ways of separating from others in the area is through a comprehensive restoration and recovery solution that we can offer local businesses. With a team of in-house contractors to help with both residential and commercial properties in need, we can ensure that the right repairs and reconstruction occurs at the appropriate times. The mitigation phase can be the proper point for damaged fixtures to get repaired so that pipes can get pressurized again with water.
These are all steps that help your office get back to normal. Our contractors can help through various phases of the recovery of your office kitchen and its surrounding areas. Mitigation can see the repair of plumbing and controlled demolition when necessary, while later stages of restoration in the building might require these discarded materials to get replaced.

What Tools Are Best for Efficient Water Removal?
Not every loss situation requires us to pull out the most powerful and efficient tools in our inventory. In some cases, extraction tools are not necessary at all. With small leaks that can begin to spread through the kitchen and break areas of your office building, it is possible to sop up water on the surface to prevent penetration and saturation of exposed materials. Removing this mild volume of water from the surface of damaged materials in these areas most often requires conventional cleaning and restoration tools that many property owners are already familiar with, including:
• Wet Vacuums
How Do I Efficiently Dry the Room?
The drying of this space requires several tools in our inventory working together. Efficiency is vital in this regard, as drying can often be one of the most prolonged phases of restoration after a water loss. With the right information regarding where moisture pockets exist, we can utilize tools like air movers and dehumidifiers to gain control of these conditions. If drying must occur within structural cavities, we have specialty tools such as are positive pressure systems that can inject dry air into these openings to increase evaporative processes.
Not every loss situation requires the full extent of our restoration team and equipment, but can still benefit from the experience and fast response of competent professionals. We can track water damage beyond the surface to ensure that the drying process is thorough and avoid more hazardous conditions such as mold growth.
