If you had a lot of rain in your area that led to flooding, this can cause a lot of problems. If your industrial company has a lot of damage due to the water, you need to take steps quickly to get the water out of your building. One of the best things you can do is to hire an industrial water damage restoration company that can come quickly to your business. Below is information on how they can help you.
The water damage restoration company will first remove anything that has no water damage that can be picked up and moved. This may be materials, equipment, supplies, etc. This can help prevent these things from getting damaged if the floodwater gets higher. Also, mold and mildew will start to grow wherever there is moisture, so you do not want this growing on your products.
Remove Flood Water and Dry the Area
The contractor will use special equipment to pump out all the water and remove all debris. If you have a large building, such as a large warehouse, it may take a lot of time to get all the water removed.
Once all the water is out, the company will set up large industrial fans in different areas to help dry things out. How long this will take depends on how large your company is. If your company is large, it may take several days to get everything dry. Humidifiers may also be set up in different areas to help prevent mold and mildew from growing.
If you used chemicals in your industrial company, the floodwaters will be considered hazardous waste. The water damage company can ensure this water is properly taken care of.
Look for Structural Damage
If you have a warehouse that had water damage and there was a lot of water damage to the walls and doors, this can cause structural damage. There may also be damage to the HVAC system or anything that is wooden. Because these things can be dangerous, the restoration company may send someone to your business to look for structural damage so you can get this repaired before your employees come back to work.
The industrial water damage restoration company that you hire can write a report for you to give to your insurance company. They may write up an estimate on how much it will cost to get everything back to normal again.
