When water damages a Little Rock commercial structure, rely on the professionals from SERVPRO to mitigate the situation.
Even with regular inspections in your Little Rock property, a commercial water damage event can occur. Here are the top five most common reasons for a business to experience the need for restoration services due to water-related issues:

Does a Business Need to Close During Commercial Water Damage Repair?
SERVPRO technicians ascertain on a case-by-case basis if a business needs to close during commercial water damage repair in Little Rock. Even if the water extraction and drying needs were minimal, the danger of slip and fall accidents or the need to remove stock or business furniture for water removal purposes could make it difficult to conduct normal daily activities.
In situations where the water within the structure contains sewage or other harmful elements, the techs generally recommend closure of the building during the cleanup. This is because this type of water is not only hazardous to come into contact with; it can cause issues if it is aspirated. SERVPRO techs wear professional-quality protective gear that includes a respirator, so they do not breathe in biohazard materials. Air scrubbers or the creation of negative air chambers may be necessary to improve the air quality during the restoration services.
Afterward, the techs clean the structure with antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaning agents to ensure that the surfaces get left sanitary and ready for safe reuse by both employees and clients.
