Professional Cleanup After Water Damage to Slidell Office Flooring
Addressing trapped and standing water can protect sensitive building materials in Slidell offices.
Before much of the area's flooring can be dried, cleaned, and restored, certain mitigation tasks are necessary for local offices. Content relocation is critical for damaged businesses, as this can protect many vital materials and items before restoration begins, such as:
A mark of skilled water restoration companies for Slidell businesses is managing multiple flooring types when water damage exists. Our SERVPRO team can quickly identify the necessary drying tools and extraction equipment to manage hardwood flooring concerns. Absorption might be delayed with a finish or varnish on hardwood, but it can be devastating to the material once this penetration occurs. We utilize drying mats and squeegee wands to manage surface water and trapped moisture concerns.
Low-pile carpeting is common in office buildings. Traditional extraction can help with any pooling or puddling, but the trapped moisture creates the biggest concerns. We have weighted extractors and hot water extraction cleaning measures to protect the thin carpet layer and the padding underneath before irreparable harm occurs.
Popular flooring material for lobbies and offices is engineered wood. This plank flooring option leaves multiple moisture penetration points with plank seams. After surface water gets resolved, we must utilize drying mats to pull trapped moisture in the floors before warping and distortion result. Fortunately engineered wood is constructed to resist warping.
Is Reconstruction Necessary?
With a general contractor license, our SERVPRO team must assess where reconstruction and demolition of these flooring materials might be needed to provide a faster and more cost-efficient path to restoration.
