Expertise in Handling Commercial Water Removal Saves Clifton Park Business Center

When everything is working smoothly, it is hard to believe anything can stop operations in a business center. In Clifton Park, a water loss incident brought everything to a standstill after a plumbing system failure in one of the washrooms in the upper floors of the building. Apart from flooding the businesses on the same floor, the leak also sent water through the wall cavities and elevator shaft, affecting lower floors.

Sufficient Extraction Power

Different dynamics determine the steps involved in commercial water removal, and the Clifton Park business center affected by the incident presents a couple of challenges. For example, most of the spilled water stagnated on the relatively level floors, requiring considerable extraction effort. Our truck-mounted water extractors and other high capacity removal equipment came in handy, providing the necessary capacity to remove the water fast.

 Draining Water from Cavities

Intrusion into the walls and other cavities also left water in the HVAC duct lines and C-channel metal framing necessitating other water removal techniques apart from using extraction tools. Our SERVPRO technicians drilled small holes at the bottom of the walls to drain water trapped in the framing. For the ducts, wet vacuuming helped remove most of the water before draining.

 Extraction from Different Floor Types

Our team is well versed with water removal from different floor types ranging from carpeted areas, hardwood floors, and tiles, which made it easier to deal with the different business units within the business center. Fitting the water extractors with squeegee wands for hard floors and carpet wands for the carpeted areas ensures optimal results. Scoping also helped because our SERVPRO technicians could identify aspects such as the pile density of carpets and the type of installation. Pile density lower than 30 ounces and direct gluing to the floor ease the extraction.

Commercial water loss can be challenging to handle. Call SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County at (518) 885-2620 to help find a viable solution to any aspect of the loss, "Like it never even happened."
