Count on SERVPRO for Water Loss Mitigation in Little Rock Businesses
Commercial Water Damage in a Little Rock Dermatologist's Office
Spring often brings strong storms to Arkansas, and it is crucial to spot check your property after a rainstorm to ensure there is no damage to the roofing or around windows or doorways. If there is damage from high winds or hail, water can find a way into your property.
The commercial water damage in a Little Rock dermatologist office happened during a storm when water ran through loosened flashing around a vent on the roof. The next morning the staff entered the office to find soggy ceiling tiles, and the front of the office saturated.
They contacted SERVPRO, and our technicians arrived on site to extract the water that was left around the front desk area. The ceiling tiles were taken out, and the roof was tarped to stop any further water damage from occurring. There was little water left, but the moisture readings indicated high levels of moisture in the ceiling area and the wall behind the desk where the water ran to the floor.
It was determined that the wall was not a water loss, and the subflooring was unaffected as the seal on the tile was completely intact. We drilled some weep holes into the walls and forced in some warm air. We remove as much moisture as possible before setting up the air movers as it speeds the drying process. We paid particular attention to ensure the ceiling area was dried thoroughly.
To leave the premises sanitary and inhibit microbial growth, our technicians clean all surfaces affected by water. In this case, only mild odor control was needed to neutralize the residual water odor. Our SERVPRO location offers building services, and we were able to suggest to the owner the best course of action for fixing the flashing and replacing the unrestorable ceiling tiles.
Commercial water damage can lead to costly secondary damages if it is not cleaned up properly. Call SERVPRO of Northwest Little Rock at (501) 803-9700 and our team can go to work for you immediately.
