Containment strategies allow Somerset businesses to continue some operations during the restoration process.

Restaurants and other service industries are at a considerable loss when contending with disasters that shut the doors of the building temporarily. The ideal situations allow these facilities to remain open and operational, even in a limited capacity, to ensure that customer service lapses do not occur. We have credible solutions to mitigate damage from several sources like:

  • Burst pipes
  • Broken fixtures
  • Damaged sprinkler systems
  • Flooding

Managing Standing Water Concerns

Among the first steps in water removal for Somerset businesses, especially restaurants and structures of the food industry, is removing any standing water. The best method of achieving this result is with a combination of vacuums and pumps. Vacuums provide the most versatile approach to removing standing water across multiple surfaces like hardwood, tile, carpeting, and concrete.

Establishing Physical Barriers 

One of the best ways to preserve unaffected areas of the restaurant or cafe from additional damage is to establish barriers that prevent the migration of standing water, moisture, and other threats. Reducing cross-contamination is another considerable aspect of establishing firm perimeters of the workspace. Plastic sheeting and sealing over air pathways allow for a focused drying and cleanup of the damaged zones.

Reducing the Impact on the Building

When water is not stopped and quelled from freely moving, greater surface areas of the restaurant must be shut down to foot traffic and service. Swift action with containment and mitigation makes it possible to partially operate while work continues, but only if these emergency services happen right away. 

Protecting your employees, customers, and facilities after substantial water damage incidents begins with effective and efficient mitigation solutions. Our SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County team has leading extraction and drying equipment to help as soon as you call (908) 259-6603.
