Saving a Bookstore from Commercial Water Damage in Oakland

Running a small local bookstore is often satisfying work that benefits the community greatly. Not only do you get familiar with locals, but you get to connect and communicate with tourists and other travelers who love to read. However, when water damage from a leaky pipe affects both your walls and your inventory, action needs to be taken quickly to prevent mold growth and restore your goods. 

If commercial water damage in your Oakland small business is affecting your inventory and storage space, certified SERVPRO technicians are here to help. Our goal is to mitigate damage and restore your space with efficient, effective tools so you can get back to business as usual.

After you call one of our representatives, we can send a team out to assess your inventory space and detect moisture for precise and thorough cleanup. After moving and securing your inventory, our dream can focus on drying your walls with industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers. Manual cleaning with an EPA-registered antimicrobial solution can also be used to mitigate mold development.

Water-damaged items must be addressed with care before mold, warping, or other damage can develop. If inventory at your bookstore has been affected by water damage, our team at SERVPRO can use lyophilization tools to restore it without affecting the quality of your goods. 

Lyophilization, also known as freeze-drying, can be vital to preserving and restoring water-damaged inventory, even rare or antique books. The process involves freezing inventory to prevent mold growth and additional moisture accumulation. From there, with the assistance of a man-made vacuum, moisture can be drawn out of materials while frozen and leave them completely dry and in good condition to sell. 

When a disaster of any size affects your business, it is crucial to preserve your assets. SERVPRO of San Leandro is here to help. If you need our emergency cleanup services, give our team a call at (510) 352-2480 today.
