Closter Office Suite Drenched from Fire Suppressant System? No Worries-Call SERVPRO for Rapid Restoration
Sprinkler System Causes Commercial Water Damage in Closter
The fire suppressant sprinkler system gives business owners in Closter peace of mind about their property when they are not on site. This system causing commercial water damage is probably not the outcome they were expecting.
That is what happened to cause commercial water damage in a Closter office. A malfunction triggered the sprinkler system to activate overnight and water pooled on the glued-down industrial carpeting. Fortunately, there was no subfloor, as the foundation was a concrete slab.
Fast Water Extraction
This type of floor covering delaminates rapidly upon exposure to water, and SERVPRO technicians have the equipment to remove moisture quickly and avoid that outcome. As a proactive measure, they removed the vinyl floor trim to drain and dry any water that wicked into the sheetrock with the idea of preventing ongoing water damage.
Setting and Attaining Drying Goals
The techs measured the air quality and set drying goals in line with relative humidity levels for the interior environment that are typical for the workplace. They then set up air movers and dehumidification equipment to expedite drying the water loss area.
Drying in Place
SERVPRO attempts to disrupt commercial workspace as little as possible during water cleanup and restoration. We can dry office furnishing in place by raising them up on blocks of wood or high-density foam. If the carpet was glued directly to the concrete pad, and the adhesion has remained intact, we can dry it with weighted wands or Rovers.
No one wants to come to work in an office that smells musty. The technicians use a combination of hand cleaning with deodorizing cleaning agents and odor control equipment as needed to ensure there are no lingering reminders of the water loss.
Repairs as Needed
With our general contractor license #13VH001305854800, SERVPRO can offer property owners the seamless service of repairs and rebuilding as needed to restore the loss area entirely. In cases like this one, where only minor damages resulted from the water loss, very little was required to restore the office after the completion of the restoration services. Our goal was minimal disruption to the work routine during the business day.
