Mecklenburg County Water Removal Services by SERVPRO Generally Follow a Time-Tested Procedure for Removing Water from Your Commercial Property.

Just the other month, a Charlotte-area office building suffered the effects of a ruptured pipe in its basement.  This broken pipe rapidly filled the Mecklenburg County business’ basement maintenance rooms with feet of standing water and forced its owners to shut off the building’s electricity.  Unfortunately, this prevented the company from continuing its operations until workers effectively addressed the water issue.  The owners, without any forewarning, suddenly faced a costly problem that needed to be solved as soon as possible.  They needed to make quick decisions in order to avert an extended business closure and substantial operational losses.  In doing so, they contacted a local water removal service for assistance. SERVPRO--We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

What Procedure Does Water Removal Services Like SERVPRO Follow to Extract Water from My Mecklenburg County Business?

The key to successfully extracting water from a commercial structure is having a proven plan of action. Our team has such a plan and our skilled technicians know what to do at each stage of the process.  Once workers find and shutoff the offending water source, they generally do the following things:  

  • Remove standing water with submersible pumps and large, commercial-strength extractors
  • Determine a drying goal, based on moisture levels in unaffected areas, and calculate the right dehumidifier-to-air mover ratio for the most efficient drying
  • Quickly and effectively dry interiors using advanced refrigerant or desiccant dehumidifiers
  • Inject EPA and OSHA-approved fungicides, disinfectants, and deodorants into even the most difficult-to-reach areas, using state-of-the-art foggers

Ultimately, these tools allow SERVPRO to efficiently resolve your water issue. This time-saving service enables you to get back to work sooner, reducing your overall costs and limiting your losses.
