Stopping Commercial Water Damage on Pine Island
Team SERVPRO Reacts Quickly to Remediate Your Water Damage
Pine Island businesses have recovered, for the most part, from our recent extreme weather. That is excellent news for a small hotel that has reopened. It also means that identifying and repairing any further problems should be done as swiftly as possible.
Commercial water damage to Pine Island businesses is not weather related. The flooding comes from sources like burst pipes, backed-up sewer, and septic systems, and failing appliances like refrigerators and dishwashers. SERVPRO has almost thirty years of stopping and repairing these sources, removing the water and restoring the business to its original state.
Stopping the water is simple enough. Our first step is to turn off the water into the hotel and then find the failure in pipes, plumbing, or appliances. Once we have that, we isolate it and then turn the water main back on. That lets us work safely while still allowing other, unaffected parts of the hotel to continue operation.
Next, we repair and replace. SERVPRO technicians are trained and licensed to cut away the damaged pipe and install a new section. We can do this with everything from copper to PVC. Depending on the type of pipe and the location of the break, our restoration crews can complete this task in just a few hours.
Plumbing problems can be more difficult. Stoppages are usually underground and require us in some cases to use specially designed cameras to find what is blocking the drain and how to deal with it. Usually, this involves a powered, rotary device to cut through the block and force it out using water pressure.
In cases where the pipe itself is cracked or broken, technicians have to dig down to the break. If it is outside the hotel, this may only involve several crew members with shovels. If the pipe is inside the hotel, it may involve breaking up a section of concrete. The best option is to find the damage in the basement where a replacement can take just a morning or the afternoon to complete.
Appliances are the easiest damage to fix. We simply turn off the water, disconnect the failed item, and remove it from the property. Every SERVPRO office works with the major appliance companies so we can install the replacement. That is part of our service and saves the customer the cost of an additional service call.
Right now, we need every business up and running, taking care of tourists and the residents who are still rebuilding their homes. SERVPRO of Cape Coral is here to help every hotel and motel reach and maintain maximum occupancy. To find out more about how we can help you, call today at (239) 573-5911.
