Challenges of Restoring Damaged Municipal Buildings
Standing Water Threatens to Municipal Buildings
We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and that is something that we show Houston municipal properties, businesses, and residences every day.
SERVPRO maintains a 24/7 emergency line to handle all pressing situations as they happen. We are prepared to spring into action at a moment’s notice when the circumstances demand it. As the management for city property, any emergencies that occur require your fast response and reaction to get addressed appropriately. In many cases, water loss incidents can be among the most damaging of these potential threats. Water can spread quickly throughout the building and affect multiple offices and waiting areas.
As much as water removal may seem straightforward, there are many considerations in choosing the ideal extraction approach. For the sake of getting the building back to full capacity as promptly as possible, many entrust properties to the fast and experienced response of our SERVPRO technicians. With a growing inventory of premier recovery equipment, we can address both standing water and the drying to follow while maintaining as minimal of a presence as possible.
Water extraction, when performed immediately upon the arrival of qualified professionals, can protect the installed materials and contents of your damaged areas. While some areas of the building feature low pile carpeting that can get dried and restored quickly with the combined use of our air movers and dehumidifiers, other materials like marble require more intricate approaches. Many assume that because of its finish that marble does not absorb water, but it has a higher porosity than most types of natural stone used in construction.
While it can take some time to prove overly damaging and detrimental to this flooring material, allowing even mild saturation to persist can alter the composition of the marble. In most cases, this can result in cosmetic concerns like discolorations and etching. Our SERVPRO team can utilize our specialized tools like drying mats to slowly draw out the moisture from this material to reduce the possibility of unappealing aesthetic changes or marring.
Water removal from marble flooring and carpeting in office areas presents a unique challenge for our SERVPRO of Katy/Cypress/Champions/1960 team when we first arrive. No matter how severe the circumstances, you can count on our professionals to help. Once water extraction is complete, we also offer reconstruction and rebuilding services to address more extensive damage so your restoration process is as seamless as possible.
