Commercial Water Extraction for Blackwood Bussinesses

5/18/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Water Damage presents many challenges

Blackwood Damage Is Often Caused by Water, Call SERVPRO


Once water damage has struck your business, the first action is to remove it immediately. Standing water can permanently destroy carpets, floors, and walls if not dealt with quickly. In many situations, though, that is not enough.


Water extraction, especially in commercial structures is a needed procedure for many Blackwood businesses. It is this process that removes water from carpets to keep bubbles from forming underneath, stop glue from dissolving and prevent mold from expanding and growing. SERVPRO has the equipment and experience to stop all of this and more.

For print shops and other businesses that deal in paper products, this process is also necessary to reduce the overall levels of moisture in the air. Although paper quickly falls apart when exposed to water, reducing the humidity inside the structure saves items that are not otherwise damaged.

To do this, our technicians use air movers, dehumidifiers, exhaust fans and specially designed heaters. The dehumidifiers extract water directly from the surrounding atmosphere, which prevents it from damaging finished product and stock items. Air movers and exhaust fans draw air from a single location and circulate it throughout the facility and eventually to the outside. Circulation helps the dehumidifiers perform more efficiently as moisture is removed with the air away from paper stocks as well as the floors and walls of the structure.

The commercial grade heaters can be set to safely raise the temperature in a variety of spaces from a small stockroom to a large showroom or customer service area. Besides the reduction in physical damage to stocks and finished products, this combination of equipment to lower the moisture levels also stops mold growth.

As these machines are set up, other team members work with the business owners to examine which damaged property needs removal. Everything that has been underwater typically must be thrown out. Water is absorbed quickly, and even a stack of paper and other product can be useless in a matter of hours once covered with water.

Pulling standing water out of a structure takes care of many issues when it comes to restoration. It does not stop all problems, though, and further actions are needed. SERVPRO of Blackwood / Gloucester Township has the experience and equipment to completely remove and dry your business to reopen for your customers. Call us today at (856) 227-7800 to get started.
