Paint shops can fall prey to flooding and subsequent flood damage. Contact SERVPRO should your paint business have excess water.

Steps that Help in Restoration of Commercial Flood Damage in West Monroe

If your paint shop in West Monroe floods, your biggest worry is likely to be whether it will have adverse effects on your business. Losing your stock or your clients are two extreme outcomes because even if damages extend to the structure, your insurer or the building owner is likely to cover those costs. Despite this reprieve, you must handle flooding incidents properly to ensure that your business remains afloat. We offer IICRC certified restoration services that should help restore normal operations in your business.
Stock can be damaged in different ways after flood damage in West Monroe. Since paint is mostly packaged in cans and other waterproof materials, the water is less likely to affect it. However, if the packaging is affected, it might diminish the value or appeal of the product. Long-term water exposure can lead to rusting in metallic containers while labels might peel off from plastic containers. Our SERVPRO technicians work fast to remove water from affected areas preventing these problems. We use different equipment including pumps if the water is over 2 inches deep, truck-mounted water extractors and dry-wet vacs.
Floodwaters spread soils, silt, and other debris indiscriminately over the affected areas. Proper cleanup is necessary to restore sanitary conditions. Thorough cleaning is especially crucial where the water affects items that you sell to your clients. Our SERVPRO technicians utilize different techniques including using power washers to remove grime and other soils. We also use various cleaning agents with disinfectant and antimicrobial properties to help restore sanitary conditions.
Drying a property affected by flooding is a vital restoration step. Traces of moisture in materials or high levels of humidity in the affected environment can have adverse effects including mold development and deterioration of materials through rotting, rusting or warping. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on their ASD, Applied Structural Drying experiences to dry your shop. Among the processes involved include, detecting the level of water absorption in different materials using moisture sensors and assessing relative humidity in and outside the shop using thermo-hygrometers. We then dry any excess moisture using air movers and dehumidifiers.
