Water Damage in the Local Amherst Laundromat
SERVPRO Technicians are Proficient at Remediating Your Water Damage
Everyone needs a laundromat from time to time. You lined up plenty of washers and even offered a drop-off wash and fold option for busy college students and hardworking community members. All goes very wrong when a defective machine overflows, flooding your dry cleaning and laundry location with several inches of water. A speedy resolution to the problem is to call SERVPRO for efficient water removal services.
With so many different people operating the washers round the clock, an overflow of water needing immediate removal could be expected at your Amherst laundry center. The overworked machines do not cycle out of the filling stage because a valve is corroded and sticks in the open position. Customers fail to oversee the machines and do not notice the flow of water. Within minutes the floor of your shop is inches deep in sudsy water.
Managing this mess on your own is difficult. You have your hands full running the dry cleaning desk and the snack counter that keeps bored customers happy. You and your clientele count on the laundry being open 24/7, so the chance you close to deal with the damage is not one you want to take. The technicians from SERVPRO are a perfect fit for this scenario, trained in fast water removal and proven drying techniques.
A professional restoration company like SERVPRO is also well positioned to determine how to get rid of the water properly and take all necessary steps even when your electricity is shut off. Truck-mounted pumps and extractors do not rely on your electricity for power. The water pulled out of your business is considered contaminated, and SERVPRO contains this “gray water” for appropriate disposal. Submersible pumps and heavy-duty extractors suck up standing water fast.
SERVPRO staff inspects and evaluates your flooring, trim, and walls, looking for areas where the water undermined the integrity of the building materials. If the crew arrives soon after the flood and begins restoration work, chances are good the tile floor and painted walls need air movers and dehumidifiers to reduce the moisture remaining. Our trained technicians scout out any concerning patches where water has been absorbed and then check for possible microbial growth risks.
