Commercial Flood Damage Can Halt Your Business Operations In White House

12/8/2016 (Permalink)

Flooding can cause significant damage to your commercial property.

Commercial Flood Damage

During a flood, it isn't just the roads and homes that are overcome with excess water in the area. Businesses, factories, clinics, hospitals, schools and everything in between can find themselves soaked with brackish water, as well. No building is immune to flooding. Depending on the kind of business you're engaged in will determine what kind of losses your business will have.

White House area companies that need commercial flood damage restoration and repairs can return to normal only after the flood waters have receded, the damaged interiors are repaired, and then sanitized. Pathogens found in flood water, and then left behind on soft and hard surfaces, can be extremely harmful to human health. Businesses in the services industry can find themselves without the end-user items needed to carry out day-to-day operations. Retail operations can return after a flood to discover their inventory is not only water-logged, but covered in sediment and jumbled up.

Clinics and hospitals have patients to care for, as well as the items required for providing that care. In addition, there is also the federal requirement for safe record keeping of patient files. Restaurants will need to ensure that all food in jars, cans, and boxes have been disposed of to protect patrons' health. Kitchen equipment will need to be cleaned and sanitized. Flood waters can wipe out much of this, but we can help with the restoration process. Removing silt can be tedious but must be done to remove hidden pathogens and also the destructive grit that would ruin many pieces of equipment, regardless of the type of business.

We know your customers or clients depend on you and the services or products you provide them, and we want you to know you can count on us. Reversing commercial flood damage is much more than just getting the water out. It's also the act of removing the extra humidity left behind, ensuring that all surfaces are clean and sanitized, that all carpets have been removed or restored to a sanitary state, and much more. The prevention of secondary water damage is of vital importance, especially when you have a responsibility to those you serve. Understanding that responsibility is part of what makes us able to respond the way we do.
