Andover's Commercial Water Damage Drying Techniques
Commercial Water Damage Drying Techniques
If a pipe breaks inside your Andover beauty salon, it is essential that quick mitigation of the problem takes place. It is vital that the building is made safe for your employees and customers. If moisture sits inside a structure for too long many problems including mold growth can take place.
It is also helpful if the mitigation work takes place while your business stays open. SERVPRO's commercial water damage technicians in Andover always try to complete restoration work without causing excessive strain on your company. From the first time we arrive on the job site to the finish, we utilize methods that allow our work to negatively affect your business as little as possible.
The first step to any mitigation process is to ensure that the building is safe for all occupants. Anything that is a potential hazard gets repaired, or the area gets blocked off before work begins. When we start the extraction process, we section off the areas that we are working in so that your customers and employees stay out of harm's way.
In some scenarios, we extract water out of your beauty salon a section at a time so that you can keep some salon chairs open and keep your business functioning. After we pull all of the moisture out with the extraction equipment that we can, the drying process begins. Structural drying sometimes gets completed overnight when the beauty salon is not open. Other times the dehumidification and air moving equipment gets set up inside the salon so that it is not in the way of business operations.
When setting equipment up inside a building to dry its structure, correct positioning of the air movers and dehumidifiers is vital. If air movers get set up to where they are pumping air directly into the walls, then they are pushing moisture into the wall which is not ideal. Our SERVPRO restoration team always sets up air movers so that they push air in a counter-clockwise motion at the walls at a 45-degree angle so that it pushes the moist air out to where the dehumidifiers can remove the water vapor.
Proper drying techniques get used to ensure that moisture levels drop to preloss conditions within 48 hours. For assistance drying out your beauty salon, call SERVPRO of Coon Rapids / Central Anoka County at (763) 712-9712 any time of the day.
