What Can I Do To Restore Normalcy Faster At My Tallahassee Hotel After Water Loss?
SERVPRO Helps with Commercial Water Cleanup to Restore Tallahassee Properties Damaged by Water Intrusion
When water intrudes into several suites at your Tallahassee hotel, extensive clean up is necessary to deal with soiling and other effects that moisture exposure can have on different materials.
Should I start cleaning immediately?
Extracting pools of water and cleaning soiled materials is crucial. However, a bit of planning before carrying out the actual water cleanup exercise in your Tallahassee hotel is likely to lead to better results. Preparation does not have to be complicated to be effective. When you involve our SERVPRO crews, the preparation involves:
• Documenting the loss for insurance or other purposes
• Identifying moisture migration patterns
• Identifying what materials the water loss affects
What is the best way to document water damage?
Since each situation is unique, it is hard to single out one method as the best. However, photos and videos can provide irrefutable evidence. Our technicians also take readings with moisture meters from porous materials such as wood or gypsum to ascertain how wet they are.
The process of documenting the loss also provides essential information for cleanup. For instance, we can tell whether there is a need to tear down materials so that we can plan the cleanup processes accordingly.
Is performing cleanup after water damage in a hotel difficult?
Ideally, the cleanup should not be difficult since most cases involve clean water. However, the materials the water interacts with can complicate things.
• Drywall and other gypsum-based materials crumble when saturated
• Dyes in curtails or other fabrics run staining carpets
• Wooden floors can form water stains
Our crews use different approaches to address the challenges. Making flood cuts allows easier removal of drywall and insulation damaged by water intrusion. It also halts further wicking of moisture. In case of stains on carpets, spot cleaning the affected area before cleaning the rest of the carpet ensures stains do not set.
