Frozen water pipes can wreak havoc on a business. When a pipe freezes, water may slow to a trickle or not flow at all.

That’s where the experts at ServiceMaster Restore® come in. We have the technology, the training and, most of all, the experience needed to quickly solve the problem and get your business back in action.

Commercial Fire Fighting Damage Services

Flooding damage from firefighting can occur for a number of reasons.

It could be water from a fire hose used in fighting the fire, water from your building’s sprinkler system or even your fire suppression system breaking or malfunctioning.

This water can cause extensive damage to your building’s structure and furnishings and promote electrical hazards.

What’s more, just the smallest amount of water inside walls can become a breeding ground for mold spores that can damage building materials and create potential health issues for employees and customers.

Remember, the quicker you get water extraction services, the less flood damage you’ll have in your business.

It’s all about minimizing business interruptions and getting you fully operational again.

Because damage often brings with it a great deal of stress, at ServiceMaster Restore, we want to help you with all of your commercial water damage restoration needs.

Commercial Carpet & Furniture Cleaning Services

One of the biggest issues a business operation has to deal with after any type of water damage is wet carpet.

Area rugs and rug mats are removed easily and hung or laid out to dry.

However, wall-to-wall carpet drying is a difficult DIY job and is one best left to the professionals at ServiceMaster Restore®.

Quick mitigation from the experts helps prevent water damage from spreading, lowers costs and promotes business continuity.

Our professionals consider the following factors when assessing damage:

  • Age and condition of the affected items
  • Length of time items were exposed to water
  • Type of water that caused the damage

Different types of water affect the restoration process.

CLEAN WATER

This refers to flooding from a source of water that does not pose any threat to humans. If flooding from a clean source of water like this is treated quickly we can often save your carpets, upholstery and rugs.

Water that does not pose any threat to humans. If flooding from a clean source of water like this is treated quickly we can often save your carpets, upholstery and rugs.

 

GREY WATER

Water that is not necessarily clean but is not hazardous (washing machine and dishwasher overflow, for example).

Carpet “may” be saved but replace pad. Upholstered furniture may need to be replaced.

 

BLACK WATER

Comes from flooding from an extremely unsanitary source such as sewage backup or runoff water which contains harmful bacteria and fungi which will cause severe discomfort or sickness. These losses are hazardous and should be handled with caution. Neither carpet or pad can be saved. Consult a professional to know what your options are for upholstered furniture.

Fast on-site service to maintain business continuity

Our trained technicians use advanced technology and equipment to quickly clean, deodorize and restore your carpets and floors, minimize business interruption and lower replacement costs.

 

Carpet Mold Removal

ServiceMaster Restore professionals perform a thorough carpet drying service that includes water extraction, mold mitigation and odor removal.

We know carpet drying is essential to preventing mold growth, which can create potential health issues for employees and customers, especially those who suffer from allergies, asthma and respiratory conditions. 

Commercial Document Drying Services

Whether it’s from a burst pipe or a natural disaster such as a flood, water damage is one of the most difficult situations faced by a commercial operation.

Water can be damaging not only to flooring, ceilings and furniture but its effect on paper-based items often is devastatingly destructive.

In fact, water damaged paper quickly deteriorates, making it critical to quickly stop the progression of the damage and protect your highly valuable and irreplaceable documents.

At ServiceMaster Restore®, we have the expertise to quickly return your documents to pre-loss condition.

In the event of water damage, there are many papers that you’ll want dried and restored.

Documents and paper items that can be saved through document drying include but are not limited to:

  • Certificates
  • Licenses
  • Contracts
  • Diplomas
  • Photographs
  • Tax documents
  • Receipts and warranty paperwork
  • And more…

Our team uses advanced tools and techniques to restore documents, including:

Commercial Roof Leak Clean-Up Services

 

A leaking roof can create a lot of damage quickly and, if left neglected, can compromise the building’s strength, foundation and overall structure.

When roof failures happen, we can help.

We’ll get your business back on track by providing fast, dependable solutions delivered by highly trained and knowledgeable ServiceMaster Restore® experts.

Along with the latest industry tools and techniques, we’re dedicated to keeping your doors open while ensuring clear, concise communication throughout the entire process.

Roofs most often reach the point of catastrophic failure when one or more of these conditions occur:

 

AGING ROOF

When roofs are left in place beyond their useful life, leaks occur within the property and the number and severity of these leaks will increase over time.

 

 

SATURATED ROOFING

As a result of an aging roof, accumulated water isn’t dispensed properly and is trapped in the roof and leads to saturated and ruined materials.

 

 

HIGH WIND DAMAGE

During high winds and severe weather, your roof is susceptible to partial or entire removal.

 

 

ICE DAMS

When a layer of ice or snow builds up on your roof in sub-freezing temperatures, ice dams become a concern.

The radiant heat from your property melts some of the snow and ice, allowing the resulting liquid water to run down your roof to the gutters in a normal fashion. However, once the water reaches the gutters away from the heat of the home, it can refreeze, build-up and block additional melt water.

Commercial Flood Cleanup Services

Whether from a storm or a broken pipe, water flowing into your business facility can quickly and severely impact your building and your business. As the water rises, so do the damages.

Within minutes of flooding, water spreads throughout your property and is absorbed into the walls, floors, and upholstery.

Wood furniture and paper will begin to warp and may be permanently damaged or even ruined. And every hour spent cleaning up is an hour lost in productivity and revenue, which impacts both you and your employees.

 

Knowing what to do and who to call is critical to protecting your property:

  • Inspection and assessment
  • Water removal
  • Anti-microbial application
  • Drying, air movement, dehumidifying, and monitoring

Commercial Water Drying & Dehumidification Services

 

DEFINITIONS

Drying: The process of removing moisture from materials.

Dehumidification: The process of removing moisture from the air.

 

Water removal services on their own are usually not enough to remove all the moisture from your business facility after a water damage event.

Water can hide behind walls, under flooring, or in your HVAC system and vents.

At ServiceMaster Restore® we provide expert drying and dehumidification services using a combination of dehumidifiers and high velocity air movers to remove moisture from the air.

With so much at stake, we will make sure your business gets back to normal fast.

Five Step Drying Process

Inspect and assess

Using state-of-the-art instruments, our certified technicians will inspect your building for damage, identify the source, and outline the work required

Remove water

We use various methods to extract the water including absorbing, draining, pumping and vacuuming

Evaporation

Using equipment such as air movers, we help the water to evaporate more quickly

Dehumidification

We use dehumidifiers to extract the moisture from the air and expedite the drying process

Monitoring

Our technicians take atmospheric and moisture content readings that indicate if the area is drying, at what rate and what adjustments, if any, need to be made to expedite the drying process and avoid excessive uncontrolled humidity levels

Beware of mold

Mold can start growing in as little as 48 hours. Left unattended, it can cause health problems as well as serious structural damage to your facility.

Commercial Sewage Backup Cleanup Services

More than damaging your business, sewer back-ups and flooding can be a health hazard.

Sewage and floods can contain bacteria, viruses and other germs that can cause disease and illness.

While sewer back-ups are most commonly found in private service lines, they can also be the result of problems in the main sewer line in the street. At ServiceMaster Restore®, we have the process, the training and the experience to not only clean up, but help eliminate bacteria and germs.

water damage logo

What causes back-ups?

  • Soil settlement
  • Misaligned joints
  • Root infiltration
  • Pipe collapses
  • Grease build-up
  • Other items that have been flushed down a drain

Flooding results when the volume of water run-off from a storm is greater than a drainage system’s capacity.

When this occurs, two types of problems can result:

The overland flow of storm water enters a property through an opening such as a door, window or cracks in the building’s foundation

When heavy rains increase the water elevation in the sewer system and cause backflow through the sewer pipeline and into a business

Our experts follow proven steps to repair sewer back-ups and flood damage:

  • Removal of sewage and water
  • Removal of contaminated furnishings, carpet and flooring, and when necessary, remove and dispose of other items that have been exposed to potential contamination
  • Use of professional grade air movers to ventilate and dry the area
  • Clean and sanitize the area to prevent the spread of microbes that may cause disease or sickness, and when necessary, treatment of the area to help prevent future mold and mildew growth

 

You can count on the specialists at ServiceMaster Restore to provide you with the best solution to keep interruptions to a minimum so your employees can continue to work and you can continue to provide for your family.
