Warehouse and Inventory Water Damage Restoration

12/4/2018 (Permalink)

When plumbing connections fail in your warehouse, not only is your property from water damage, but your inventory may be affected as well. Our team of water removal specialists can be at your site quickly to remove the water and begin the drying process to save your property.

SERVPRO has submersible pumps and heavy-duty water extractors to drain and suck the standing water out of every square inch of your property. Afterwards, our trained technicians will search for any pockets of hidden water to ensure a thorough dry out. We also measure the moisture content of any affected materials and the structure of the affected areas in order to set an appropriate drying plan.

We arrange your inventory strategically, off the warehouse floor if possible, to maximize air flow. Our industrial air movers and dehumidifiers are then set in place to begin the drying process. Time is of the essence as mold growth can begin within just 24 to 48 hours of the water loss occurrence if not abated. Once the drying cycle is set in motion, our technicians will track the process daily to make sure proper drying is occurring.

SERVPRO also works with your insurance throughout, limiting your out-of-pocket expenses if your losses are included under your coverage. We also problem solve with you to avoid a repeat occurrence in the future. We highly encourage you to look into our Emergency Ready Profile to plan ahead with us.

SERVPRO of Palatine / Rolling Meadows has the training, tools, and technicians to handle your commercial water damage challenges. Call us at (847) 934-1700 to set up an evaluation.

Iron Sprinklers Can Cause Water Damage To Your Palatine Department Store

12/8/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Iron Sprinklers Can Cause Water Damage To Your Palatine Department Store Trust SERVPRO of Palatine / Rolling Meadows to clean and restore your department store "Like it never even happened."

Did You Know Iron Sprinklers Can Cause Water Damage To Your Property?

Department stores in Palatine get built to specific fire prevention codes. When the building that you operate out of first opened, it was built with a network of fire suppression fail-safes, like your sprinkler system to stop a fire before it would get out of control. The older the building, the more likely that ductile iron pipe and other metal plumbing was used to run the water lines to where they needed to go to operate this emergency system.

As time wears on, the iron plumbing of your department store becomes weaker and more susceptible to breaks. The result can be substantial water damages to your Palatine business. The circumstance can pose numerous threats depending on where the system ultimately fails. As is the case with any business, you have goods to think about, not to mention all of the recordkeeping meant to store financial figures and payroll. Water damage concerns for your company like these are the kind of work our SERVPRO technicians are trained to handle.

The most prominent concern about your sprinkler system in the department store is that they do not always give a warning when the pipes are going to give way and bust. Considering that the plumbing used to route this system always has standing water in it waiting for an emergency, there is an ever-present chemical reaction happening between the liquid and metal on the inside of the pipe. Over typically extensive periods of time, this causes erosion which weakens an individual pipe to the point of breaking. When there is a single hole in this network of plumbing, all of its stored contents now have a point of escape.

Our SERVPRO emergency response team has handled all manner of water damage incidents, and our priority is bringing your business back to full capacity as quickly as possible. When this damage ends up affecting the sales floor or office space, it can be challenging to keep the area safe for customers. Instead of hoping there are no further damages and working around the problem, let our professional technicians restore the area quickly and efficiently.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources
