Commercial Water Damage Equipment

If a pipe breaks inside your Chicago flower shop, products, and building materials are at risk. Excessive moisture can ruin flowers inside your store and cost you much money in inventory. It is possible though if dealt with quickly that contents can be saved with cleaning and drying.

Restoring contents and materials is always cheaper than removing and replacing them. When mitigating commercial water damage issues in Chicago, measures get taken to save as many materials as possible. Extraction and drying can prevent items from being ruined if completed promptly.

Whenever our SERVPRO restoration team works with businesses, we often complete the work differently than residential projects. We know that losing out on business can get expensive for you and your insurance company. We can change our processes so that our operations do not impede your business functions and cause you to lose out on revenue.

SERVPRO works hard to keep your business functioning as usual even if it requires completing the mitigation work when the business is closed. If mitigation procedures are urgent and must be completed during business hours, then we work in small sections at a type so parts of your flower store can stay open to customer traffic. We also can change the way we complete the drying process so that it helps remove moisture from your flower products.

When removing moisture from a structure, we start by extracting as much water as we can from the building. When there are more than two inches of standing water, then a sump pump gets used to suck up the water. Submersible pumps vary in strength and capacity based on which type is used. Whenever using pumps to remove water, we export the water into a sewer drain such as a toilet.

After the deep standing water gets removed, we use specialized extraction equipment to pull moisture out of the carpet, upholstery, and other materials. An extraction system consists of a vacuum pump, hoses, storage tanks and extraction tools. Extraction tools vary in size according to what type of materials are saturated.

Light extraction wands get used for delicate materials, whereas heavy-duty extractors get implemented to pull excess moisture out of thick carpet. If your business needs assistance with unwanted moisture, call SERVPRO of Evergreen Park / South Chicago City at (773) 337-3900 24 hours a day.
