SERVPRO Technicians Dry Out Your Commercial Property Quickly to Minimize Any Downtime

Having to deal with water damage is the last thing on your to-do list as a restaurateur. Unfortunately, some or other form of water damage is almost inevitable in a service based business such as a restaurant that relies heavily on water. Although you can not avoid it altogether, understanding the basics of water damage can help you deal with the event in a more efficient way when it happens.

The time and money required to get commercial water damage to your Ham Lake Restaurant under control depend on the severity and extent of the damage. SERVPRO professionals use the IICRC's Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration to categorize the water damage in three distinct categories.

Category I damage
It is perhaps the least concerning water damage that can happen at your restaurant. The water causing the category I damage is clean, uncontaminated water that is safe and does not pose any immediate health hazard. Some of the most common reasons for such type of water damage include broken pipes, faulty supply lines to appliances such as ice machines and dishwashers and leaky faucets. Our technicians not only control this damage but also prevent any secondary damage from the residual moisture as well.

Category II damage  
Water causing this type of damage is usually wastewater that contains some contamination but no fecal matter. As there is some degree of contamination, it can still be problematic for a restaurant. SERVPRO professionals have years of experience and expertise to tackle such damage. We use state-of-the-art equipment to clean and disinfect your establishment so that you can face any health and sanitation inspection with confidence.

Category III Damage
Perhaps the worst nightmare of any restraint owner, this type of damage involves highly contaminated water that may contain fecal matter and can cause some serious problems. SERVPRO technicians understand the severity of such type of damage and make sure that it is dealt with promptly and efficiently. You can rely on us during the time of your need, and our professionals make sure that you are 100% satisfied.

Here At SERVPRO, we have a team of IICRC certified expert technicians who have the experience, knowledge, and skill set to handle any size disaster.
