Janitors Closet Source of Commercial Water Damage in Teaneck Office 

Sometime after the office closed a supply line in a janitorial closet broke, and the office manager arrived to open the following morning, a large amount of water ran down the hallway and entered the doorways of several offices.  

When the techs arrived at the Teaneck property, they found wide-scale commercial water damage. The techs immediately scoped the premises to determine the exact areas of water loss while extracting the water left.  

Consequences of Hours of Water Exposure

The longer water has the opportunity to remain on floors and within building materials, the more damage it does. Even though the cleanup started in the morning hours, the time the laminate tile flooring spent in the elevated moisture caused the tile to delaminate and for seepage to occur into the subfloor. Although water ran behind the baseboards, it did not have a chance to wick into the sheetrock.  

Drying the Office Evenly

When SERVPRO techs set up drying configurations, it is more than setting up fans and waiting. The techs use clusters of air movers along with dehumidifiers in each section to dry the entire loss area at the same time. During the drying phase, the techs monitor the interior air moisture levels to ensure the process goes as planned.  

Limiting Disruption During Restoration Services

SERVPRO techs know it is tough to have to close an office for water loss cleanup suddenly and even harder if everything got moved around. The techs carefully document anything they have to move during mitigation and try to dry items in place whenever possible. 

Wipe Down and Necessary Repairs

The technicians use professional-grade solutions, some exclusive to SERVPRO, such as their Orange cleaner. Bacteria can establish itself rapidly after a water loss, and the techs work to ensure all areas affected by the event get sanitized and ready for regular day-to-day activities when the office reopens. After the restoration services complete, the techs provide a list of the actions taken as well as the necessary repairs to bring the office to its preloss condition. 

SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482 takes on commercial water damage large or small and uses their restoration knowledge to make the loss, "Like it never even happened."
