Innovative Strategies Save Business Records from Water Damage in Colton

Although the majority of your Colton office’s current paperwork might have a digital backup, a water loss can threaten the ruin of unscanned documents or historical records. Modern technology, as employed by our skilled team, can dry out books, blueprints, certificates, notes, photos, and many more paper-based records after a soaking. We welcome the chance to explain how resources we access can clean, dry, and disinfect items you believed water destroyed beyond recognition.

No matter how the water damage occurred in your Colton business, you survey a sorry-looking mess before remediation efforts begin. The floors, walls, and ceilings saturated by a plumbing leak or appliance malfunction can be dealt with on-site by our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Reconstruction Certification (IICRC)-trained crew members. As we begin work inside your office, taking the time to pack up and move certain items to our production facility makes sense. Clearing the space of furnishings and storage allows our employees to remove the water and dry out the structure more efficiently. Hard copies of your business documents benefit from a pack-out where we use targeted strategies to save your paper trail. Our restoration flexibility is to your company’s benefit.

When paper suffers water damage is becomes fragile, risking the “bleeding” of inks and compression into a solid mass of cellulose rather than free-standing pages. SERVPRO recommends a freeze-drying procedure, first to halt the damage and stabilize the integrity of the papers with a significant temperature drop and then to remove the water. The process is called also called lyophilization or cryodesiccation.

After the papers freeze in a special chamber, pressure in the chamber lowers and then removes the ice by sublimation. Sublimation transitions water directly from its solid phase to vapor, without passing through the intermediate liquid phase. The vapor condenses outside of the chamber for disposal. SERVPRO technicians then store the documents, photos, and other items in a climate controlled area until your water damaged offices are ready for their return.

Professional Commercial Water Cleanup In A Colton Bistro

Is there anything more frustrating than when the dishwasher breaks? It can be infuriating enough to deal with at home, but when your commercial dishwasher malfunctions and leaves water all over the tile flooring of your bistro's kitchen, you need professionals who understand the ins and outs of commercial water cleanup to prevent mold and structural damage to your floor and subfloor.

If a dishwasher malfunction results in a kitchen needing commercial water cleanup in your Colton restaurant, certified SERVPRO technicians are ready to help. We can dry your kitchen while mitigating the risk of long-term water damage with industrial-grade equipment.

Before we can get to drying, water must be removed, and our team has the tools and methods to ensure thorough extraction. We can use wet/dry vacuums to sop up water and accurately measure moisture with a variety of tools and technologies: moisture sensors to probe porous surfaces like drywall, meters to evaluate surface moisture, and infrared imaging to detect the presence of water behind structures. Before, during, and after drying your flooring, we measure these levels until they are safe for you to get back to business.

After the water has been removed, our SERVPRO professionals can get to drying surfaces with a combination of industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers. As moisture declines, we can set up polyethylene chambers to accelerate drying in isolated areas. While air movers pull moisture up and away from surfaces, dehumidifiers catch this moist air and expel warm, dry air. Desiccant dehumidifiers can pass this moist air over desiccant material such as silica gel and isolate water into collection trays. After drying, we can give your moisture-affected services a thorough cleaning with an EPA-registered antimicrobial to prevent the onset of mold.
