Inside of office Water damage can impact both you and your customer. Don't go it alone. Call SERVPRO for fast, effective remediation.

SERVPRO Utilizes Special Tools to Restore Flood Damaged Poughkeepsie Businesses

Because loss incidents are rarely the same from one structure to the next, SERVPRO professionals must arrive with a wide array of recovery tools after flooding and storm damage impact area offices and commercial properties. To fully and ultimately restore and dry flooded spaces, we have to utilize hundreds of drying tools from our leading inventory. 

Tracking the Migration of Moisture

To determine the impact of flood damage on Poughkeepsie offices, SERVPRO professionals must first introduce moisture tracking tools and equipment to the equation. During the initial inspection and evaluation of the grounds, we can use hygrometers, moisture meters, and thermal imagery to identify damp pockets beyond the surface materials to show where moisture migration occurs. 

Removing All Standing Water

As with nearly all flood loss scenarios, removing any standing water from affected areas is essential. While the threat of contamination might exist in specific events, some degree of water removal must still occur to protect the structure. This process combines several extraction and drying tools stocked on our production vehicles in the Green Fleet, including: 

  • Pumps
  • Vacuums
  • Wands
  • Drying Mats

Simultaneous Drying Solutions

Drying must happen all at once for office buildings to ensure that the threat is managed completely. Technicians strategically place dozens of axial and centrifugal air movers throughout the building. We can use a heavy-duty, trailered generator from our stock to supply lights, drying, and other restoration processes when available power is a concern. 

Whole Property Dehumidification

With the custom drying approach occurring with the air movers throughout the building, equipment needs to be placed and operated to manage the growing environmental moisture. A trailered outside desiccant dehumidification unit can be enough to regulate moist conditions in several office areas simultaneously. 

As overwhelming as water damage and flooding can be for your business, SERVPRO of NW & SE Dutchess County can help with practical solutions even without contamination threats. Call now at (845) 635-4550.
