Professional Commercial Flood Damage Mitigation in Brigantine
Your Nearly-Empty Warehouse Needs Professional Commercial Flood Damage Mitigation in Brigantine
With shopping activities at their peak of the year, most warehouses in Brigantine hold more bare shelves than those with product. When saltwater rushes in during a storm and overtakes your near-empty warehouse, letting it dry out over the holidays might seem the cheapest route to take. Despite the initially lower cost, even with scrubbing things down later, this can backfire on you by putting any future inventory at risk.
Instead, SERVPRO recommends businesses in flooded areas of Brigantine call certified commercial flood damage professionals. Doing so ensures that all of the effects caused by flooding, including by saltwater, get addressed in a timely manner. This reduces the risk of corrosion, microbial infestations, and elevated humidity.
At times, mitigating flood damage reveals additional damage. Our building services team is always available to perform reconstruction where needed, under General Contractor License # HIC #13VH05086500. They also perform electrical and HVAC work, streamlining services for our customers.
Increased moisture in the air, especially during the cold winter, can lead to additional problems, including higher heating costs. Damp air feels colder than arid air does, leaving warehouse workers feeling chilly. In the summer, water vapor can leave skin feeling sticky and leave your employees wanting cooler temperatures in which to work.
Also, other issues associated with flood damage include odors and contamination. SERVPRO handles both of these, also. Cleaning with disinfectant sprays kills off many of the organisms that can create odors, but we also rinse non-porous surfaces, leaving them free of residues containing automotive fluids, herbicides, salt, and other substances brought in the flood. Contamination is not always biological in nature but can include inorganic matter, too.
Odors come from substances that enter the air as they breakdown and disintegrate. Our technicians work with our customers until they are satisfied that the odors no longer pose a problem. Odor control is crucial because the molecules causing them can permeate plastic wrapping, fabrics, papers, and many other goods.
