SERVPRO helps Northampton businesses with water damage repair

Commercial properties look to our professionals' fast and reliable response to help mitigate and restore their structures after leaks and burst pipes. With how rapidly elements like drywall can become ruined by water saturation, we respond fast with solutions like:

  • Extraction
  • Cleaning
  • Drying
  • Content Protection
  • Mold Prevention

What Materials Need to be Removed? 

The first determination of our team during water damage repair for Northampton businesses is what physical damage is apparent. We can often target the problem areas based on surface damage visible on elements like drywall near the leak.

What Framework Was Installed? 

In commercial structures, it is common to see metal tract frameworks. Older buildings might still have wood framing between walls, and each of these materials is handled differently when restoring water damage, as wood is absorbent.

What Is Needed to Dry Up Damage? 

With the structural cavity exposed, we can focus on the needed tools and pieces of equipment to dry up damaged elements still installed. Even with a metal framework, it is vital to fully dry the opening between wall surfaces to reduce the likelihood of secondary effects like mold and microbial growth. We utilize air movers and dehumidifiers to have the most significant impact on removing moisture from structural cavities.

What Materials Get Replaced?

After much of the drying is complete, we can focus on the materials that must get replaced. Wall systems consist of several pieces and parts. With the framework exposed and necessary damaged elements removed, it is possible to quickly replace full panels of drywall and similar materials where needed.

Wall systems often contain the bulk of the plumbing network for commercial properties. When these materials become damaged, it is up to our experienced restoration and reconstruction professionals of our SERVPRO of Hampshire County team to help. We are a full-service contractor for restoration and recovery - give us a call today at (413) 324-1300.
