Rely on SERVPRO for Quick and Thorough Commercial Water Removal

When your Atlanta office building suffers from a water emergency, there are so many concerns that you circle back through in your mind. Ultimately the best thing that you can do to ensure that your doors can reopen quickly is to entrust the cleanup and restoration to a professional, but how do you know that this is the right decision for your business?

The office building that you oversee in Atlanta might be in need of water removal, but have you stopped to consider what this means for the business? For starters, much like any business in any building, customers and clients are heavily relying on your doors being open and your services being available whenever they need them. Without this, you are running a severe risk of losing profits while you mull over the best approach to deal with your substantial water damage emergency inside.

In this digital age, no matter what profession or service that you offer to the public, your reputation is everything. The trouble with the instantaneous exchange of information that has been made possible through the advancements of the internet is that the longer your doors remain closed, the more that your reputation is going to suffer from those with a harsh opinion and a keyboard. That is what makes expedient restoration a necessity, and that requires professional expertise like our SERVPRO team.

Another critical consideration that comes with your water emergency and its apparent need for professional SERVPRO restoration services is the employees that depend on the company. You likely have an entire staff of individuals that rely on their positions within this company to support themselves and their families. The longer that they are kept away from work due to a water emergency, the more displeased they become and the more each of them struggles financially.

You should not sit on a water emergency in your facility for very long. The longer that standing water and moisture get permitted to sit in one place, the more likely that structural damages and mold damage could result. Contact us at SERVPRO of Southwest Cobb / Cascade at any time to help you clean up and restore your office building. Just call (770) 739-2355.

Can Your Atlanta Gas Station's Drains Protect Against Water Damage?

Water Removal by SERVPRO Keeps Many Atlanta Businesses Open During Restoration Services

SERVPRO Can Help Keep Your Atlanta Business or Shop Open During Water Removal Services

If draining in your gas station in Atlanta is poor, water damage could lurk just around the corner. Many commercial services buildings and businesses are increasingly including drainage systems in all areas of the structure to eliminate threats of water damage and prevent potentially harmful situations. If your gas station or other unrelated business building lacks adequate drain systems near pumps, in the store section, or in restrooms, you may find yourself at odds with these damage factors.

Foundation Cracks
Water damage can happen to an Atlanta gas station's foundation when water is allowed to pool or puddle above it. While the most severe damage typically only results from situations where there is standing water of a measurable depth, puddles, and persistent moisture can cause many of the same disastrous effects as this much larger and more visible problem. A small storm, plumbing mishap, or mop bucket spill could be all it takes to start to cause damage to your foundation that could cost a fortune down the road. Though fortified, fuel tanks must always be protected from the elements.

Grout and Material Deterioration
While most types of flooring are resistant against the effects of water, long-term exposure to moisture can cause some deterioration of materials. Most notable are different types of tile grout: some can break down, crack, expand, contract, and develop mold growth after long-term contact with water. While SERVPRO can help to reverse these effects, it is best never to let them happen in the first place. To keep your floor and its materials in top shape, try to keep excess water to a minimum. Keep the floors dry.

Injury and Liability Lawsuits
Drainage systems are essential to ensure that your business retains as little water as possible across its floor space for liability reasons. While wet floor signs and warnings can do an excellent job of warning against temporary wetness that evaporates quickly, persistent puddles may be a lawsuit waiting to happen.
