SERVPRO is a Commercial Water Removal Service for the Wantagh Area. We Can Mitigate Water Losses of Faulty Appliances and Get your Business Back to its Best.

How can I prevent appliances from leaking?

Faulty appliances can lead to massive amounts of water affecting your Wantagh business. These issues can deteriorate rapidly without quick intervention. Water-based appliances connect to mains plumbing. Buildups of grime or dirt in either the plumbing system or the washing machine can cause pressure, which eventually exceeds the pipe's capacity or duct. When pressure spots occur, your business can quickly become flooded in more than two inches of standing water leading to temporary closure and adverse effects on your daily takings. SERVPRO is available to perform fast and effective water mitigation in your business to re-open sooner rather than later.

What can I do to prevent water damage from a leaking appliance?

Regular maintenance is crucial to avoiding commercial water removal emergencies in your Wantagh business. Maintaining internal plumbing and the health of appliances using water can prevent leaks from getting out of control. When a leak occurs, shutting off water or disconnecting the machine can be valuable for mitigating losses. If it is too late to reduce losses, you should contact a professional water restoration technician (WRT) to prevent further damage. If flooding is limited to a specific area of your business, attempting to stem the flow of migration of water using water blocks or avoiding unnecessary foot traffic can be beneficial. Our technicians can bring sandbags to your premises to prevent water migration and block appliances to keep them above the standing water level until pumping occurs.

How do I assess the extent of water cleanup needed?

  • Start from the source of the damage, visually noting down wet areas of the property
  • Work your way outward repeating the same process counting rooms and areas of damage
  • Contact an emergency water technician to explain the level of losses

How do I get rid of standing water in my business?

SERVPRO technicians use a variety of pumping equipment to reduce standing water levels before they cause lasting damage. Most of these pumps can function when submerged beneath standing water. These pumps use a central engine to provide lift and suction via a water duct. Standard electric submersible pumps can transport water up to twenty-five feet outside of a property. High-pressure pumps can move water uphill, whereas self-priming trash pumps can transport any solid waste that may be present in the water. Some equipment can be more efficient than others, depending on the specific water loss situation. Our technicians hold qualifications from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certifications (IICRC) body, which allows us to assess a situation accurately and perform the required method to achieve quick results.

Is water intrusion in business premises a health and safety hazard?

When large amounts of water intrude into a property, there can be numerous slip and trip, electrical, or bacterial health risks, even when the water supply is from a clean source. SERVPRO technicians perform a scoping procedure before restoration to ensure that any hazards or threats a neutralized. This procedure can be ideal for business owners who may require specialized repairers for appliances or electrical equipment. Our technicians can create a safe, dry, and sanitary environment for any third-party repairers to work. If you need assistance to find a specialist, our crew chiefs have a roster of trusted third-parties that can be included within your claim.

What is the method of water removal from start to finish?

  • Isolate the affected area and inspect for water migration as well as potential hazards
  • Begin emergency mitigation by pumping or extracting water from the business premises
  • Establish a solid drying plan using air movers or dehumidifiers to remove residual moisture
  • Perform final steps of deodorization and air-filtration to return the area to its preloss condition

Is commercial business restoration worth it?

When something goes wrong on your business premises, it can add a massive amount of stress and take your mind away from crucial business decisions. You may also experience unnecessary losses by using non-professional restoration methods. These losses may include things like mold damage or unpleasant odors and bacteria in certain areas. SERVPRO aims to remove the inconvenience of water damage by communicating closely with you and efficiently performing the city's effective cleanup. We can pass our paperwork directly onto your business insurer to reduce the impact insurance claims can have on your time and business. We also have extensive experience working with companies like yours in the Wantagh area.
