Prolific Types of Commercial Damage Tackled by SERVPRO
Water, Fire, Smoke, Mold, and Biohazards Can Shut Down a Business
Often when least expected, disaster strikes thousands of businesses across the country every year. From the long and slow process of mold growth to sudden and disastrous floods or fires, there are many ways that a commercial building can sustain severe damage. In some cases, a fast response through SERVPRO's mitigation strategy can make a difference of thousands of dollars in damages and weeks of time, but there is typically still extensive cleanup and repair work to be done in the wake of such a disaster.
Fires are what many business owners fear most, and the force most often identified with commercial damage in Coon Rapids. Although fires are visible and certainly destructive, they are thankfully a relatively uncommon occurrence. Most commercial fires start from electrical or artificial sources, such as gas leaks, chemical reactions, cigarette butts, or electrical malfunctions. Restaurants, cafeterias, and commercial kitchens are major players in fires. Most businesses are also equipped with a sprinkler system, able to douse most small blazes before they reach substantial size.
Water damage is a highly diverse type of damage, often creating unique conditions and problems that require an expert eye to solve. Response times are important for many water damage cases, as SERVPRO technicians will be able to assess the situation and shut off any sources of further damage. Some types of water damage, such as storm floods, can completely destroy buildings in extreme cases, but most are benign enough to allow for a full restoration.
Mold is a difficult substance to deal with. While it is often less time-sensitive than other types of damage, cutting its growth off early is also important in stopping its exponential growth. Long-term exposure to mold may also cause health effects, making remediation a medical priority as well as a financial one. Many office buildings, particularly older structures with outdated air duct systems suffer from "air sickness." Indoor air quality is a key component in a healthy office or administrative building environment.
