SERVPRO Techs Professionally Extract Water From Commack Business Properties

When a Commack business has an issue that needs the assistance of water cleanup professionals, the property owner often has many questions. Including how to keep the business functioning during the restoration service.

One of the biggest issues for a Commack business needing water removal is what will happen to the computer equipment and important documents. SERVPRO technicians work one-on-one with business owners, so each phase of the restoration service is understood. This personalized attention allows the property owner to let the SERVPRO crew chief know what aspects of the structure or contents need attention from the owner's point of view. Frequently prized articles and items include:

  • Important documents
  • Computers, switches, and data hubs
  • Locally stored stock 

During a water damage restoration service, the technicians quickly remove the maximum amount of moisture within the structure. Actions such as weep holes or flood cuts get performed to open up more of the interior walls for airflow. The techs quickly determine what items can remain on-site and what articles need removal. The techs cover them in heavy gauge plastic sheeting to protect desks, chairs, and other contents remaining within the structure. 

What About Wet Documents?

Although many businesses use cloud storage so information can be accessed anywhere, there are also documents stored on-site that are vital. When crucial paper documents get saturated, the techs can use different methods to dry the papers, such as a vacuum freeze dryer which carries approval by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

Computer Equipment

When computer equipment of any type has come into contact with water or is exposed to high moisture conditions, SERVPRO recommends that an outside industry specialist inspect the devices before they are used again. This equipment should not ever be plugged in and tested due to the danger of permanent damage or electrical shock.
