Time is Money in a Water Damage

11/21/2017 (Permalink)

You have heard it said again and again: Time is money.

The old adage is never truer than when dealing with a water-damaged home or business. Every minute matters, because every minute the property remains wet could turn primary damage into secondary- or even permanent damage.  That's why emergency response matters.  

Secondary water damage occurs when the moisture from the primary event (flood, leak, etc.) begins to evaporate on its own into the air.  Over time the air will no longer be able to hold the moisture from the evaporation.  The moisture will have to go somewhere and a very basic principle behind psychometrics is that wet goes to dry.  The moisture may go into your drywall, cabinetry, sheetrock, hardwood floors, vinyl floors, etc.  Once the moisture is allowed to sit, mold can then begin to grow.  This is why emergency action is so incredibly important.

Let's face it: Floods, burst pipes, and leaks simply don't abide by the 9-to-5 workday.  So why should your restoration provider?  SERVPRO of Metrocrest Professionals are on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with the state-of-the-art equipment and proven methods to get the job done right as quickly as possible. This includes every holiday, even Thanksgiving.  So, if that turkey decides to burrow into your piping and causes a water damage to occur you can call us and we will be there.

If the unthinkable happens, call your local SERVPRO of Metrocrest Professionals at (972) 233-8400 to help you avoid the cost and hassle of secondary damages.  We pledge to help make it "Like it never even happened."

Commercial Water Damage - What To Do When It Happens

Commercial Commercial Water Damage - What To Do When It Happens Commercial Water Disasters DO Happen - SERVPRO® of Metrocrest is READY!

As the owner of a commercial property in Dallas and the surrounding areas, you will likely be responsible for maintaining its pipework including repairs if things go wrong. Since most office buildings and businesses remain unoccupied at night and on weekends, the potential for water damage can be very high on these premises.

Detecting Water Damage

Leaks can be caused either suddenly as in the case of bursting pipes, which can be detected instantly, or gradually by a hose or pipe leaking slowly over a period of time. Underground leaks are another common problem. To find out if your business has a water leak look for the following signs.

  • Do you hear the sound of running water?
  • Are any wet areas or running water visible?
  • Can you detect an unusual drop in water pressure?

If you find yourself answering in the affirmative to any of these questions in Dallas and the surrounding areas, there is a good chance of an undetected water leak present at your business. SERVPRO® of Metrocrest can come to your place of business and check for moisture in your walls, floors, and ceiling. If you do in fact have a water leak, we will be able to successfully help with the structural drying of your business.

Storm Damage Flooded Commercial Building in Dallas, TX SERVPRO of Metrocrest Drying Equipment Ready for Action!

SERVPRO of Metrocrest was called out to a flooded building that was under construction in Dallas, TX.  Flash flooding had caused approximately 15,000 sq ft of the building to fill with water.  Fortunately, only concrete flooring was affected.  The water, however, had gotten as high as 12 inches deep in some areas and affected a very important electrical room.  SERVPRO of Metrocrest pumped and then extracted water from the structure before setting up drying equipment.
