Commercial Water Cleanup

Chestnut Hill businesses usually see flooding problems after an internal problem with a malfunctioning sprinkler system, a broken pipe or a split hose. Each can leave an incredible amount of water across the floor, and damage both structural property and inventory.

Commercial water cleanup for a Chestnut Hill copy shop and business center is not the same as water removal. SERVPRO restoration teams have to draw water out of the home before they can wipe down affected property or otherwise clean the facility. The amount of paper present can have some effects on everything in the facility.

Team members have to remove every piece of paper as quickly as possible, to avoid it adhering to furniture and everything else it touches. When it does stick, peeling it off piece-by-piece requires many labor hours, but our technicians can successfully remove it. If the furniture and other items are metal, removal is fairly simple. Wood bookcases or chairs require additional care to avoid causing secondary damage, but with a mild cleaning agent, they are restorable.

The ink on paper can stain everything it touches. For metal surfaces, SERVPRO can clean the ink stains with one of the cleaners in our inventory. Wood surfaces are more vulnerable than metal, and the stains or paints are covering them may have to be stripped to remove the stains. Our technicians can strip most surfaces, but we recommend bringing in a professional furniture restorer to replace the stain or paint.

Carpets are potentially the highest cost when it comes to clean up or replacement. To reduce the effects paper and ink have on them, technicians remove everything before drawing away all of the water. Next, they remove any bits of paper and other debris from the surface and then clean the carpet with a strong, commercial grade shampoo. If there is still massive staining after several cleaning sessions, it may be necessary to replace the carpet.

The goal at SERVPRO of Manayunk is to restore each business as close to its original state as possible. If you require our services after water spreads through your operation, call us today at (215) 482-0800 to schedule a visit and receive a free estimate.
