When Commercial Buildings have water damage.
When SERVPRO of South Garland is called to a commercial water job we have a plan. We try to ascertain as much information needed to know what materials are damaged, before we head to the job site to be certain all necessary equipment and tools are loaded upon the trucks. We have a check list to go by.
Our IICRC certified technicians will then analyze the damage, and record the proper conditions for you to report to your insurance company. Photos will be taken of all the damage. At this time, our technicians will identify the category of water and communicate their findings to you, and if need be we will speak with your adjuster for you.
Next, our technicians will create a drying plan that will meet the needs of the areas affected. Many times, there will be limiting factors, such as property hours, needs of the business or owner’s requirements that our technicians will need to consider when creating their plan of action.
After the drying plan is established, our technicians will check for any safety hazards before beginning the drying process. This includes water extraction, placing of commercial-grade dehumidifiers, desiccant technology, air movers or heat systems. The use of equipment will be determined during the analysis phase, and may change to meet the different requirements of the job.
Once the water is extracted and the equipment is in place, daily monitoring reports are taken to show drying progress in each of the affected areas. These reports are used to show the insurance company that drying is taking place, and help support and justify the drying plan that was initially created.
We certainly try to dry all of the damaged materials, but factors due to saturation levels or other damage may hinder effective drying. In those situations, we will remove non-salvageable materials and items. Proper documentation will be given to you that you can forward to your insurance company.
Once work has been completed, we will conduct a final walk-through with the assigned on-site contact and our company. This ensures that all parties are aware of the completed work and are satisfied with the finished outcome.
