Sandy Springs Commercial Flood Damage Professionals
SERVPRO Works to Remediate and Prevent Future Flood Damage
If a storm ever hits town, excessive rains and high-speed winds likely take place. It is a possibility that your Sandy Springs auto shop gets affected by the poor weather. If the storm is severe, then flooding likely occurs.
One of the first places water flows during a flood is into the crawl space of your business' building. SERVPRO's commercial flood damage experts in Sandy Springs use specialized equipment to remove water from crawl spaces. Many times tight spaces underneath your structure are hard to access and reach with drying equipment.
When water gets into a crawl space, the area often fills up with thick, muddy water. Submersible pumps are efficient at sucking up standing water but sometimes prove difficult when attempting to remove all of the moisture. Once extraction gets completed, structural drying takes place.
Many automobile repair businesses store extra supplies underneath the office portion of their shop. When water gets into the storage area of your company, it is essential that we dry the area so that contents do not get negatively affected. If there is convenient access to the area, air movers and dehumidifiers get set up to speed up drying of the floor joists. If the crawl space's access point is too small, then either a section of the sub-floor get removed, or hoses from hot air sources get fed into the tight dwelling.
Some mechanical shops have a problem with crawl spaces filling up with water every time it rains. If you notice water underneath your business every time a storm hits your town, then after we remediate the issue we can install a crawl space encapsulating system. The system contains a submersible pump located in a hole dug in a low spot of the crawl space. The rest of the area is covered with plastic so that the area is not affected by ground moisture and the wooden floor joists do not get affected by the moisture in the crawl space.
The crawl space system is one of the ways that we prevent future issues from happening. If your auto shop's crawlspace ever has an excessive moisture problem, call SERVPRO of North Fulton County at (770) 992-2777 for assistance 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
