Commercial Water Damage in Omaha can Destroy More than the Interior of a Home Furnishings Store
Keeping Your Doors Open During Cleanup After a Water Incident
Showing customers how your products can beautify their homes is much easier when the setting is as perfect as possible. Unless someone has water-stains on their ceilings and peeling wallpaper offset by discolored draperies, displaying your products with a similar background is going to cause your sales to plummet.
Local residents love to decorate their homes in a variety of ways using different themes, but the 'look' of commercial water damage in Omaha is not on a single interior decorator's list. Just as walls can peel and painted areas can become stained and discolored from being inundated with water over time, many items that are sought after by customers are made of materials that can easily get damaged by water.
Glossy metallic finishes can tarnish; paperboard and particle board items can swell and warp; glue used in the production of some items can become weak, and framed items can become foggy-looking. In addition to all of that, water can create the perfect environment for mold to develop, and this can also affect your inventory and your store's interior structures. Water damage can easily and quickly become extensive.
When water damage stems from a one-time event such as a broken joint on a water line, carpets and low-lying pieces of inventory are typically the hardest hit. Caring for these items should begin as soon as possible, of course, and during that time, drying building materials should also commence. If products are ready to be returned before the floors and lower walls are dried, inventory should be stored in a dry location, so as not to become damaged again.
When a situation involving unwanted water occurs to your store, it might be tempting to tackle the job without professional assistance, but doing so can become overwhelming very quickly. Coordinating the clean-up of a disaster can entail much more than is commonly known or expected. Most retail businesses do not have the specialized knowledge, equipment or Professional Cleaning Products that SERVPRO IICRC industry certified technicians possess.
