A large room with windows with water on the floor, and falling into a trashcan. SERVPRO has what your commercial water damage needs in Randolph, call us today.

SERVPRO Has The Training and Experienced Skills You Need For Your Randolph Water Damage.

While your regular janitorial service might do a great job keeping your property clean, they may not have the professional equipment needed to successfully locate and extract the water wherever it migrated within the structure. When a commercial water loss happens in your Randolph retail business, most property owners want four main things to occur:  

  • Fast cleanup  
  • Save as much stock as possible  
  • No residual odors left behind
  • Lessen the time needed to close

Do I Have to Wait Until the Next Business Day to Start Commercial Water Damage Cleanup?  

As soon as a commercial water damage situation gets discovered in your Randolph property, it is time to schedule SERVPRO to begin the cleanup. The certified technicians arrive within hours of your initial call and are available 365 days a year around the clock, because the longer an elevated moisture situation remains on the premises, the more potential for a loss occurs. 

Core Differences Between a Great Janitorial Cleanup and Great Restoration Services

When you have water damage affecting your commercial property, bringing in a professional restoration company is crucial because your regular cleaning service does not possess the types of devices and equipment necessary for a successful outcome from water loss such as:   

  • Various types of moisture detection equipment for use on different surface types  
  • Professional water removal units to extract even embedded moisture
  • Drying equipment for different areas of the property
  • Odor control methods that extend beyond scent-covering sprays
  • Proactive mold treatments

After the water removal phase of cleanup, the drying phase of mitigation in your store needs to occur rapidly. SERVPRO technicians scope the property and identify items that may get affected by elevated interior humidity, such as computer equipment, documents, and paperwork and stock stored on-site. In cases where the situation demands removal of the articles to another area, the techs make a note of the precise location of every piece that gets moved, so when the restoration services complete, there is little to no disruption to regular business operations when you are open again for business. 

The Right Type of Drying Equipment Gets the Job Done Faster  

The crew that does regular cleanup for your business may have access to a large number of fans, but these only work to dry the top surfaces. SERVPRO technicians have specific types of drying devices, depending on the area within the commercial property that requires it. In cases where baseboards get removed, but the walls remain intact, the Injecti-Dry system is an ideal choice as it forces warm, dry air into small spaces. When flooring or subfloor gets affected by water loss, drying mats assist in the removal of moisture. The most common equipment used by the techs is their fleet of air movers. This type of machinery is not a fan; it blows air at a high velocity and causes a reaction that forces embedded moisture to the surface where dehumidification units capture and port it away. These professional-grade devices for drying a structure and contents is one of the biggest reasons for outsourcing the cleanup of your property. 

Water has its own musty odor calling-card that gets left behind. Treating with cover-up treatments is not a solution. The techs bring state of the art treatments such as thermal fogging to ensure that any remaining residual odors get eradicated and not merely covered up. 

Clear Communication During and After the Process  

A water loss event that halts operations can feel overwhelming. One thing you do not want to have to deal with is wondering what exactly happened during the cleanup of your building. SERVPRO technicians document and communicate with both property owners and adjusters to ensure nothing gets disposed of or moved without approval, and this further ensures that actions taken during the restoration process are within the scope of coverage. Hence, there are no surprise charges that occur.

How Fast Can Repairs Happen After Water Loss Cleanup?   

It is not unusual for sheetrock or flooring to have damage from a water loss. While SERVPRO techs have a vast array of extraction and drying equipment and cleaning solutions, sometimes building materials cannot get restored, and a certain amount of controlled demolition to remove these loss items is a standard part of the cleanup process. Once the techs finish the restoration services, they can move directly into performing any needed repairs or even large-scale reconstruction as they hold a general contractor license #13VH06013000.
