Water Restoration Approaches That Limit Business Downtime

The small city of Newark, DE, is renowned for several reasons, including hosting technology and pharmaceutical corporations like W.L. Gore & Associates and Bloom Energy. It is also home to the University of Delaware, one of the country's largest and oldest education institutions. It is easy to shop and dine within the city in areas such as Main Street and Christiana Mall. Annual events such as the Newark Halloween Parade and Newark Food and Brew Festival bring life to the city and create a chance to interact. 

Water intrusion causes direct and indirect damage in a workplace by interrupting normal activities. How you handle water removal at your Newark facility can limit the closure occasioned by the intrusion. SERVPRO® develops a mitigation plan that helps limit the inconveniences and fixes the damages.

What Helps When Time Is a Critical Factor

  • Containment of some property sections
  • Using vacuum extraction
  • Using drying chambers

Most water incidents affect some property parts, leaving the rest untouched. One way to salvage operations is isolating the affected areas, allowing staff or customers to use the rest. Containment can be as simple as setting up simple barrier tape or elaborate airtight barriers made from plastic sheets. Roof tarps to stop rainwater from filtering in are also a form of containment.

Removing the water invading the premises helps restore normalcy and halt decay. SERVPRO crews use faster methods such as vacuum extraction, which scoops standing water from surfaces and wet materials faster. It is a great choice when there are significant amounts of water or porous materials, such as carpets and upholstery. 

Equipment That Facilitates Vacuum Extraction

Proper drying is essential to finalize water removal since it eliminates odors and limits the chances of mold development. Typically, drying involves setting up air movers that drive disruptive air currents around a property. Our SERVPRO crews can set up air drying chambers containing air currents in one area, improve the drying speed, and limit disruptions elsewhere.
