Commercial Water Damage Experts Out Of Oakland Discuss Cost Saving Strategies

Excessive moisture that exists inside a building for a long time can cause several different issues to arise.

Commercial Water Damage

If an incident happens to take place inside your Oakland grocery store overnight, it is possible that you will come into your business in the morning to excessive damage. Sometimes appliances can malfunction, or pipes can break when your company is closed, and nobody is inside the building. When this happens, it's likely that water flows into the structure all night long causing your products and building materials to get saturated.

Excessive moisture that exists inside a building for a long time can cause several different issues to arise. During any commercial water damage project in Oakland, reducing moisture levels quickly is vital in preventing secondary problems. When contents and structural components inside your store get wet, they can become ruined. If materials stay saturated for an extended period they may lose their structural integrity.

To prevent microbial growth, our SERVPRO technicians know that it is essential to bring moisture levels back to preloss conditions within 48 hours. We also know that when disasters take place at your place of business that reducing the cost is vital. Our IICRC certified team develops a plan for the project that interferes with your business' functions as little as possible.

In some severe cases, our SERVPRO technicians must remove several of your grocery store's products so that we can dry the contents and your building's structural materials. However, before we pack up several of your items and move them to another location, we see if there are places inside the building that we can temporarily store your products. In many cases, items can be placed in an unaffected area of your store. There may be a storage area that has room for your contents, or a mobile storage unit can be placed on your property.

We know that restoration work can be a process that causes your business a loss of revenue. Our experienced SERVPRO crew often changes the way they mitigate issues so that our work does not prevent your company from functioning as usual. In some situations, we accomplish this task by doing the required work a small section at a time so that your grocery store can stay open throughout the process. If you ever need help saving money when a disaster happens at your business, call SERVPRO of San Leandro at (510) 352-2480 any day of the week.
