Water Removal and Remediation In Great Neck Boutique After Water Leak

Walking into your boutique and seeing that you've had a water leak can be devastating. The first thought on your mind is to protect your merchandise. With this in mind, wet items should be removed, cleaned, and dried. At the same time, you should transfer unaffected items to a safe area to keep them dry and unexposed to cleaning solutions and higher relative humidity (RH). 

When faced with commercial water removal in Great Neck, first you consider your merchandise, then contact the insurance company. Next, you need to remove the excess liquid from the impacted floors and bring down the RH within the structure to ensure you avoid secondary damage like excess humidity condensing on and ruining electronics or warping wallpaper. 

SERVPRO restoration technicians remove excess water by using portable extractors. Tile and wood floorings usually can repel water and not suffer damage if caught quickly enough. If the water stood for any period, and there are cracks in the wood or tile grout is not sealed correctly, water may seep through flooring and become more challenging to extract. However, technicians strategically place air movers to blow dry air over the surface while dehumidifiers draw moisture out of the air and exhaust warm, dry air, effectively dry the flooring.

Sometimes portable electric heaters speed up the process by blowing warm air over the flooring. SERVPRO team members can contain the affected area by placing 6-mil plastic over the floor, holding it down with sandbags or painters tape while the heated air balloons up the plastic, keeping the covered space warm and dry. This “tenting” action concentrates the air movement to a targeted area to maximize the effectiveness of the drying. Technicians monitor the electric heaters carefully throughout the heating and drying process to ensure the floor is not overly-dry, which can create further damage. 

If there are carpeted areas in your boutique, technicians may opt to use deep extraction tools that are self-propelled or stationary. These tools use body weight to compress the carpet and pad, squeeze out excess water, and then remove the water through extraction equipment. 

It is essential to bring down the interior humidity to below 60%, so your merchandise is not exposed to potentially damaging rusting or contamination to the beauty products.
