The Focuses of Floodwater Damage Cleanup in Falmouth Offices
Flood Mitigation Happens in Stages
Flooding can breach the exterior of an office building without warning and begin spreading through large areas of the facility. Post-storm disaster recovery and relief services are critical to getting your doors back open and coordinating the entire process through your insurance provider. SERVPRO® can help.
Removing Standing Water
Floodwater damage cleanup for your Falmouth office building will always begin with removing any standing water if it exists. Sometimes the water has receded when our professionals arrive, so we can focus on drying and cleaning services at the forefront of mitigation. When standing water is a concern, we have productive extractors to simultaneously manage high volumes of liquid and debris.
Assessing Structural Integrity
The next step is seeing how the flood impacted the structural elements of the office. Like a pipe bursting in the ceiling and causing tiles to collapse, water destroys the office. For example, drywall can be heavily damaged by standing water and spreading moisture. While the metal framework of many commercial buildings can withstand contaminants, we must often remove impacted elements like drywall, short-pile carpeting, and trim.
Protecting Contents and Furniture
Contents are an essential consideration of your office building as well. Content management is a vital component of the mitigation process, from furniture like desks and chairs to file cabinets, electronics, and other loose items. On-site cleaning is not always practical with Large Loss recovery, so we coordinate with your property management to transport objects to our SERVPRO facility, where we offer:
- Cleaning equipment
- Esporta Wash System
- Ozone deodorization chamber
- Climate-controlled storage
While much repairs and demolition are necessary to get your office looking its best again after flooding, we are with you every step of the way to help. SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands has experienced professionals to help with extraction, cleaning, demolition, and build-back services typically needed for commercial properties after a violent storm.
