Commercial Water Cleanup Does Not Hold Up Grand Opening Of Coffee Shop In Amherst
When planning to open a new business, water damage before your grand opening was probably not part of the plan. Fast action is on your side, the more quickly the mitigation of water loss begins, the more potential for full restoration of your property and contents.
A not-yet-opened coffee shop and bakery found themselves in need of commercial water cleanup in Amherst. The culprit was the incorrect installation of a water supply line into an espresso machine, and it came loose and released water. The incident happened overnight, and the counters, floor mats, and boxes of supplies were affected. After turning off the water, the owner called us.
Wet tile flooring is excellent for keeping sanitary conditions in a business, but is dangerous when wet. During the initial call to SERVPRO, we advised the property owner not to move water-logged items such as the floor mats and await our arrival due to the danger of slip and fall accidents. We arrived a short time later to the property, and while one technician handled the water removal using a portable pump, another team cleared the counters, moved supplies and removed the floor mats for drying in another area. The shop supplies were wisely stored in plastic bins under the counter so most of the stock unaffected by the water.
Our technicians scoped the shop with moisture detection equipment to determine if the migration of water had occurred under flooring or within the wall behind the counter. Fortunately using both probes and thermal imaging, we found no additional issues requiring remediation efforts. We set up multiple air movers and dehumidifiers to bring the moisture levels in the room below 45% and dry all surfaces quickly. We followed up with complete cleaning and disinfection of the areas affected by water to ensure they were sanitary and ready to serve customers.
Our SERVPRO location has a general contractor’s license, and we suggested the necessary repairs for the water supply line to complete the restoration of the shop. The property owner asked us to complete the repairs so the cleanup would be a seamless operation from start to finish.
The longer commercial water cleanup waits, the more damage it is doing. Call SERVPRO of Hampshire County at (413) 324-1300, and we can handle all phases of the restoration needed to make your water loss “Like it never even happened.”
