Lauderdale SERVPRO Water Cleanup Technicians Remediate Damage to a Pre-Disaster State

Commercial entities, regardless of size, may be tempted to perform their cleanup to code after a pipe leak or appliance failure. However, water cleanup from certified professionals can provide more comprehensive services while saving Ft. Lauderdale business owners time and money. These restoration tasks include structural repairs, controlled demolition, repainting, and carpet and drywall installation.

Ft. Lauderdale businesses requiring fast-acting water cleanup can count on SERVPRO restoration technicians to render cleanup per commercial regulations, focusing on repair over replacement where feasible. These services are available for business owners 24/7, including holidays, to keep downtime to a minimum.

Preserving Wet Sheetrock Without Demolition

Not all drywall requires controlled demolition and installation of new sheetrock after water damage. This material can be cleaned, dried, and repaired without removal in many instances of clean water damage.

  • SERVPRO technicians can drill small holes into interior walls to force air into cavities with specialized air movement equipment. This process is beneficial for walls with backless cabinetry
  • Walls with two layers of sheetrock require more drying time with air movers and dehumidifiers than a single layer
  • Exterior walls with fiberglass insulation in a clean water damage scenario are often dried without demolition. However, drying time takes longer due to the limited airflow compared to an interior wall
  • Concrete block walls may require the drilling of small holes for water drainage. So long as there are no perforations in the paints used on these structures, they typically act as a vapor barrier that minimizes moisture exposure

Commercial property owners seeking quality mitigation can contact the SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South team at (954) 776-2000 for restoration that makes the damage look “Like it never even happened.”
