Commercial Water Removal for a Falmouth Hotel 

Hotels face challenges when it comes to water damage. These structures are massive compared to the average home or business, and there are many more chances for pipe leaks, burst plumbing, and other types of water damage to affect it as a result. While commercial cleaners do great for day-to-day maintenance, removing water damage in wall cavities or ceiling tiles needs more specific equipment tailor-made for extracting water. 

If your Falmouth hotel needs commercial water removal from an experienced team of restoration specialists, SERVPRO is ready to help. These IICRC-certified pros receive extensive education in water damage mitigation and restoration techniques as indicated by IICRC standards, meaning your business can expect a consistently high standard of clean based on empirical measurements and tried-and-true techniques.  

Preventing Water Damage to Your Hotel

  • Guest safety always comes first. Monitor sprinklers, plumbing, electrical systems, lighting, and smoke alarms carefully to ensure that guests all have safe and adequate infrastructure in their rooms, as well as in communal areas and conference rooms.  
  • Pay extra attention to plumbing. Water supply issues can come from a variety of sources, from frozen pipes to leaks, to rust, and a little bit of maintenance goes a long toward preventing expensive repairs and unsightly stains.  
  • Have your maintenance crew look at the HVAC. Not only are climate controls essential to your guests' comfort, but something as simple as an HVAC leak can cause extensive damage with enough time and moisture.  
  • Maintain your concrete floors. Polished concrete is the ideal surface for handling the wear and tear of foot traffic, luggage, and renovations, but without proper sealing, it too can become vulnerable to damage.  

How SERVPRO Removes Water Damage Odors

SERVPRO has industrial-grade tools needed to address water damage in your hotel, from extraction wands and rovers for pulling moisture out of carpets and wall cavities, to EPA-registered antimicrobials for removing light odors and preventing bacterial growth.  

If there is a persistent odor from damage, odor control technicians can implement ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers in your structure to release deodorizing solutions. We use hand-pump or powered sprayers for disinfection, which goes a long way toward mitigating odors by removing bacteria. 

SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands can leave your business looking, "Like it never even happened." If your facilities need cleanup fast, call (508) 888-5985 today.
