How Commercial Water Loss Incidents Affect Offices in Vancouver

Unique Challenges that Commercial Water Damage in Vancouver Office Buildings Can Present

Managing a building with offices may not present many unique challenges since most of the tenants follow predictable routines in their daily activities. However, a water loss incident in such premises can cause great inconvenience and leave a significant restoration bill if you do not respond appropriately. We offer professional restoration services in Vancouver that can help shield you from significant loss.  

The large open hallways common in many office blocks can present a challenge after water damage in Vancouver. Without facing any physical barriers, spilled water can spread to a broader area lengthening the extraction process. If there is significant foot traffic in the building, the damage can spread even further. One way to overcome this challenge is by using sophisticated extraction equipment, which eases the removal process. Our SERVPRO technicians use different extraction equipment such as ride-on high volume extractors, which carry the technicians as they remove water reducing the work strain.  

The materials used on floors and other surfaces in office complexes can present challenges after water spills. Carpets can absorb vast amounts of water while joints on tiles can allow seepage leading to issues such as mold development. Removing the floor materials to extract water is useful but can lengthen the period it takes to restore the property to preloss condition. Our SERVPRO technicians use sophisticated equipment to facilitate extraction without removing the floor materials. For example, combining a water claw and with a portable or truck mounted water extractor allows us to extract water from a carpet in place. We also have injecti-dry systems that ease the removal of water trapped beneath hard surfaces such as wood or tiles.  

Water loss incidents lead to soiling in different areas as the water and people moving around the building spread debris from one area to another. Thorough cleaning is necessary to restore sanitary conditions in the building. Our SERVPRO technicians use multi-surface scrubbers and professional cleaning agents to remove all forms of soiling.  

To overcome any challenges after a water loss in your office building, call SERVPRO of W. Vancouver / Clark Co. You can reach us at (360) 695-4418 any time. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
