Mitigating Commercial Flood Damage in Roseville Garden Supply Shops
When Your Commercial Property Suffers Flood Damage, SERVPRO Will Be There To Help
Flooding can affect even those businesses that sell products that are dependent on water to ensure many products are viable. Bulbs and seeds do not need to be soaked for them to begin sprouting. Increased moisture can become trapped inside packaging and trigger germination soon after flooding commences.
In Roseville, flood damage can happen from external sources, requiring that floodwater residue be removed and sanitation ensue after, or clean water can also be the source of water woes. In garden shops, however, fertilizers and other chemicals used in gardening can turn water from Category 1, which is relatively clean, to Category 3, which is considered to be contaminated with a high risk to people.
When SERVPRO technicians mitigate flooding disasters, we make sure that the moisture level is reduced and that sanitary conditions are also restored. To complete this, we remove standing water and work toward smaller levels of moisture-elimination as quickly as possible.
We would like to start at the humidity level, but this is impossible because moisture travels from wet areas to dry areas. Because equilibrium can never be achieved when there is a source of moisture, we must eliminate from largest to smallest – from standing water to puddles, then on to wet areas, and eventually from dampness to higher humidity.
Sanitizing everything includes cleaning every contaminated surface and also the air. The air must be cleaned, so that not only is breathing pleasant but also safe. Contaminants produce appalling odors for a reason - they are not safe to breathe in, especially on a regular or continuous basis. This is true for garden shops even when the water that created the disaster is from a pipe or other heavy water leak.
While there is no possible way to un-sprout bulbs or seeds, we can set these items aside so that you can reduce your loss as much as possible by selling them, or using them another way by donating them to a local non-profit. We may have IICRC certifications in Applied Structural Drying (ASD) and Water Damage Restoration (WRT), but we are also experienced in the disasters that can affect any business, and we can help you solve the problems that come with these disasters.
