Commercial Water Damage Cleanup for Your Omaha Business
SERVPRO Strives to Extract the Water and Dry Your Business Rapidly
Commercial buildings in Omaha have pitched roofs due to the high potential snow loading in our climatic zone. They are ideal for large structures and warehouses but need more attention and maintenance to stop leaks from skylights and maintaining clog-free gutter systems for drainage. If there is anywhere on your roof where the roofing materials are damaged, deteriorated, or missing, you may wind up with leaks in your roof. Leaks like this can damage the ceiling, walls, and flooring inside your building. Roof leaks can, however, be avoided by properly maintaining your roof and having repairs done in a timely fashion.
A roof leak in your Omaha building can result in significant damage to its contents and the building itself, and quickly. As soon as you realize it is there, you want to act to prevent further commercial water damage. Calling our SERVPRO team is a good start. We are experienced in handling these situations and can work hard and immediately to start the water removal and drying of your building. We understand that the purpose for our drying goals is to protect your inventory and capital investments.
Once the standing water is removed, the key to the restoration process is control of the moisture content of the ambient indoor air and in the materials. Our SERVPRO water damage restoration and structural drying technicians will strategically place dehumidification and air movement. For us to calculate dehumidification requirements, we consider both the capacity of the dehumidifiers and the nature of the environment.
A factor that helps SERVPRO technicians define the nature of the environment is how much affected porous material is present, both in contents and building materials. The more absorbent materials there are, the more moisture they contain, which means the more moisture evaporates once negative vapor pressure has been established. Water damage which affects a large number of porous materials increases the need for dehumidification to balance evaporation. It is crucial to the capture water vapor that is liberated from the materials to maintain continuously low vapor pressure until the materials have reached drying goals.
The capacity of the dehumidifier is measured by the number of cubic feet of air it can condition per minute, and by how many gallons of water is removed in twenty-four hours under the AHAM test conditions. Grains per pound is a convenient system for gauging progress and setting up the right equipment. Our inventory includes large desiccant, smaller gel-based, and LGR low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers. We can mix and match to attain maximum drying time thus mitigating secondary water damage to unaffected areas of the building.
