Commercial Water Damage Mitigation
Immediate response to your water-related emergency is paramount, and CRC is always prepared. CRC’s technicians are certified in water damage mitigation and structural drying techniques and have extensive experience restoring water damaged properties.
What to expect during the commercial water damage repair process.
Every water or flood damage situation is unique which is why we customize a restoration plan according to your specific needs. Below is a quick overview of the commercial water damage restoration process.
When our team arrives, we'll assess your situation and all water damage. This typically includes the following:
- Finding the water source and shut it down (if you haven't already done so)
- Determining your water type to ensure water damage restoration work is completed accordingly
- Inspecting your property for damages and correlating safety issues such as asbestos
- Preparing your space for restoration, including moving furniture and other items as needed
Using submersible pumps, truck-mounted vacuums and any other equipment necessary, we'll extract the majority of the water from an affected space to stop water damage from spreading and mold from starting. This will also give us a jump start on drying everything out for you.
We also use a variety of tools, including infrared cameras, to assess saturation and find any water that may have gotten behind your walls or in the ceiling.
With the extraction complete, we'll determine whether or not it's necessary to remove your carpet and carpet pad to preserve the integrity of your subfloor.
Once the water is removed, the CRC team will move on to completely drying out your floors, walls and other items. This is crucial to avoid warping, swelling, mold and other ongoing issues that will undermine any restoration efforts.
Using industrial-strength fans and dehumidifiers, we will reduce the humidity and dry out your carpet, furniture, drywall, wood and other materials.
Throughout the drying process, we'll use highly specialized instruments to assess moisture levels in the floors, walls and other areas until they reach proper levels.
Once everything is dried out, returning your space to "normal" will take a lot of cleaning. This step typically includes the following:
- Providing the necessary cleaning techniques to assist in restoring as many items as possible
- Utilizing a portable filtration system (air scrubber) to remove lingering and offensive odors
- If applicable for your situation, sanitizing and disinfect using industrial-grade cleaning agents
- Discarding any damaged items with your approval and according to insurance guidelines
Now in the home stretch, CRC will work with you and your insurance company to fully restore your commercial space to the same or better condition than it was prior to the water damage.
We'll provide reliable, licensed and insured subcontractors to replace drywall or carpet, fix the plumbing that caused the damage in the first place.
