Steps To Restore Water Damage at a Marlborough Business

Finding out your Marlborough commercial property has water damage, perhaps from a hidden leak, can be frustrating. Managing contents and structural components damaged by the water can be challenging enough for you. Therefore, finding a professional team, like SERVPRO, to repair the damage is vital.

It is necessary to ensure you get prompt water damage repair for your Marlborough business establishment because the situation can worsen if ignored. The damage can ruin your operating equipment, and electrical systems, destroy your walls, floors, and ceilings, and cause microbial growth. Rapid response helps limit the damages. SERVPRO teams have the equipment and skills to prevent further losses and ensure complete restoration. Our teams are IICRC-certified, so you can trust us to meet your needs efficiently.

Steps that restore water damage:

  • Extract the water
  • Perform structural drying
  • Clean and sanitize the affected areas
  • Repair and restore affected surfaces and contents

Hidden leaks may cause slow water seepage, which is absorbed by structural materials like drywall, flooring, or the contents in your business establishment. Moisture absorption into materials can extend without your knowledge, causing massive damage.

Dealing With Damages from Hidden Moisture 

It is possible to determine the extent of moisture damage in a property. Detection requires devices, which include thermal imaging cameras, moisture sensors, and meters.

Possible areas where moisture may remain hidden:

  • The underside of the floorboards
  • Within wall cavities
  • Inside ceilings
  • Structural supports and frames

We provide air-moving equipment and dehumidifiers to manage moisture in the air, thus drying out all wet areas and ensuring normal humidity levels are attained. Drying varies depending on factors like building style, type, and construction. We constantly monitor the process to ensure accurate results.

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord offers rapid commercial water damage repair, so you can trust us to handle all damages. Call us at (978) 486-9868. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Mold Damage Is One Reason Why People in Marlborough Call SERVPRO

Our Fast Response Decreases Mold Damage's Severity

Our fast and local service keeps your aggravation low when dealing with mold in your Marlborough residence. Our customers rely on SERVPRO for our organized and comprehensive start-to-finish services. Mold damage starts small, and we can match it no matter how harshly it affects your property.

When mold damage affects Marlborough residences, we know structure and contents are all at risk. Many times, homes require rebuilding of damaged architecture after mold damage remediation. Some items require only a dusting off of any powdery mold. Other belongings could sustain so much damage that we recommend the customer replace the items.

Here are some of the ways our rapid response benefits our customers:

  • Our comprehensive experience and expertise
  • Our quick setup
  • Our speed while working

Knowing that an expert team is available to get things under control and cleaned up helps many homeowners refrain from starting a DIY project. It is recommended that homeowners only clean mold infestations when the area affected is less than ten square feet, which is smaller than the surface of many dining room tables. SERVPRO arrives with the necessary tools, equipment, and materials to expertly and efficiently handle the situation.

Another aspect of SERVPRO is our ability to set up fast without disturbing microbial infestations. Microbes spread through the release of spores. Whenever something disturbs a colony, it releases its viable spores. Microbes do this because passing animals (or humans) can transport such spores, depositing them in places with abundant food. Setting up fast means fewer spores escape.

We also work fast to advise you about items that are not salvageable or require extensive cleaning. We know you want to get everything back to normal again. We also assist in preventing mold infestations with humidity control and topical treatments.

SERVPRO features IICRC-certified technicians with the tools, training, and protocols to clean your interior to make it “Like it never even happened.”
