SERVPRO Makes Repairs to Your Poughkeepsie Business Quickly to Keep You Operational

Dealing with a water leak in your Poughkeepsie restaurant is not easy and can cause a hiccup in your business. Imagine that the leak overflowed onto the dining room's hardwood flooring, you may feel like you need to shut down the restaurant indefinitely while you repair the leak and dry the floors. 

Are There Low-Profile Ways To Dry the Flooring?

Injectidry Systems Dry Flooring Without Having to Lift the Wood

Water mitigation after a leak in your Poughkeepsie restaurant may require a multi-tiered approach to lose the least amount of operational time as possible. It is critical to remember the quicker you deal with any disaster; the chances are better for successful restoration. Our technicians use the injectidry system that blows warm air under flooring to facilitate the drying process. 

How Can We Use Injectidry Equipment and Still Run the Restaurant? 

  • Low profile, thick plastic, floor drying panels lay across the impacted flooring allowing for the functionality of the floor. 
  • Technicians may use a silencing attachment to the system, so patrons are unable to hear load machinery noises. 
  • Hoses and larger equipment like the interceptor and water separator can be stored out of the way while the hoses and panels work on drying the floors effectively.

It is essential to lift items off of the floors during the cleanup and restoration process. Left unattended, items left on wet floors may sustain damage and foster mold growth. Pay careful attention to flammable items at floor level, since the injectidry system uses heat.  It is as equally important to dry the floors as quickly as possible. Simply sopping up the moisture with old rags may leave hidden pockets of water beneath the vapor barrier. When our technicians use the injectidry system, they can thoroughly dry your floors, restoring them to their preloss condition.
