Challenges Water Restoration Poses in Large Helena Facilities
SERVPRO Responds Appropriately to Water Damage in Helena
Running extensive facilities requires almost perfect skills to organize people and schedule daily activities. When an unexpected event, such as water intrusion from a burst plumbing line or missing shingle, interferes with any aspect, operations can halt. Timely water restoration is essential to reinstate entire operations.
The water restoration processes your Helena facility requires may challenge you, especially if you choose to handle them in-house rather than involve a professional. SERVPRO provides the tools, trained staff, and necessary experience to respond to challenges leading to better outcomes.
Restoration Challenges Posed by a Large Facility
- Moving water or air over vast distances
- Difficulty reaching elevated areas
- Challenges in executing drying procedures
Removing spilled water is one of the main restoration procedures to undertake. Such water may be spread over the vast floor surfaces or trapped in an interior wall deep within the facility. Extracting and properly disposing of it is critical. The extractors our technicians use have storage tanks, thus easing transfers. Alternatively, we use large, wheeled trashcans as receptacles during the extraction.
Ventilating the Property
Circulating air in the property is essential to facilitate faster evaporation, thus drying wet areas faster. Unlike dealing with water, where movement is directional from the structure to the exterior, air movement requires more control. For instance, isolating the affected areas is essential before circulating dry air to ensure no interference from the air in the surrounding regions or the exterior of the building. Our technicians can establish a closed drying system by installing containment and using air movers and dehumidifiers.
Essential Drying Equipment
- Direct expansion units for heating and cooling
- Desiccant dehumidifiers
- Indirect fired furnaces
Another problem that might afflict restoration is the need for more power or lighting to facilitate the repair. SERVPRO is well prepared with portable or industrial generators to supply sufficient electricity to run all the equipment. We also have a stand, string, and wobble lights to illuminate all the dark areas.
