What Steps Should be Taken for Commercial Water Removal in Los Gatos
Essential Precautions during Water Removal in Los Gatos to Help Keep You in Business
Water spills in Los Gatos can lead to significant inconvenience, including the disruption of regular business operations. However, the circumstances can worsen if the spilled water intrudes on other areas within your business premises or nearby businesses. Involving a professional like SERVPRO can help contain the problem through expedited removal and other steps.
Stopping the source is a crucial step before starting the industrial water removal process from your Los Gatos business premises. Stopping the source can involve steps such as turning off the mains if there is a burst pipe or installing roof tarps in case there is a leak in the roof. Our SERVPRO support staff can guide you on locating and shutting off mains, or dispatch technicians immediately to install tarps protecting the interior of the business premises from further losses.
Fast extraction is another crucial step, mainly when a significant volume of water spills since gravity aided flow and other actions can spread faster, reaching unwanted areas. Our SERVPRO technicians use multiple units of high capacity pumps to extract standing water from your premises, thus halting the spread of water, especially to adjacent businesses.
Once water spills, evaporation also starts immediately, leading to high humidity inside your business premises. Such high levels of humidity can cause many secondary problems, including moisture migration to areas unaffected by the main water spill. Such moisture can damage various contents, including electronics whose internal components can rust. Although it is not possible to prevent evaporation, our SERVPRO technicians can take alternative steps to prevent secondary damage. By setting up dehumidifiers around the loss site immediately after arrival, we can extract excess humidity from the air. We also regulate temperature using the heating system at your premises or using portable heaters, thus preventing condensation, which also leads to secondary damages.
A water loss incident can push you out of business if not correctly addressed. Call SERVPRO of Los Gatos / Monte Sereno at (408) 600-2020 to help take steps to manage an incident, "Like it never even happened."
