Commercial Water Removal in Holmdel Averts Major Damage in Gym

A local gym had a pipe break overnight in a wall, and the softening of the sheetrock caused a row of mounted mirrors to come down into the wet floor that needed commercial water removal. When the manager arrived to open the doors for members for the day, she walked into a mess.

After shutting off the water to the gym, she called for commercial water removal in Holmdel from SERVPRO. The techs arrived quickly to begin the cleanup and get the gym ready to reopen as fast as possible.

Cleaning the Floors

The techs scoped the facility and determined an accurate scale of the water loss using their moisture detection equipment. The wall the mirrors came down from had a large amount of water wicked within the sheetrock. The techs swept away the broken mirrors and used their portable pumps to pull up the remaining water. The RubberTrax carpet used throughout the gym did not absorb water. However, water ran underneath in the vicinity of the pipe break, and the carpet squares needed removal to dry the slab substrate underneath. The techs took the rubber carpet squares to another area for drying and disinfection so they could get reused and save the owner the cost of replacement. The sheetrock where the mirrors hung needed removal, and this action opened up the wall cavities for drying. 

Drying and Disinfection

Gym members have an expectation that the place they work out is clean and sanitary. The techs have drying equipment that blows air at such a high velocity; it causes embedded moisture in the concrete slab flooring to rise. Once that happens, the dehumidifiers capture it.

The cycle continues and rapidly drops the air moisture content in the loss area. The techs set drying goals for healthy air quality levels and monitor the drying process carefully to ensure they get attained. 

Afterward, they use their professional-grade cleaning solutions to wipe down the affected areas with antibacterial agents to leave the surfaces clean and sanitary for use.

Managing Commercial Mold Damage Remediation in Your Holmdel Factory

The musty odor in your Holmdel factory might indicate a microbial infestation. These microbes live in damp conditions, depending on air currents to establish new colonies. Underneath large pieces of equipment, inside coat closets, or below breakroom sinks give microbes enclosed areas rich in cellulose and other food sources. While microbes exist on almost every surface, including just-cleaned ones, they do not usually cause a problem unless certain conditions exist in their immediate environment.

SERVPRO's remediation experts can help you manage the situation that lead to your Holmdel factory's commercial mold damage situation. Mold is one of the most prolific microbes on Earth. Cleaning surfaces can actually spread mold by causing it to release spores into the air. We use specialized methods to trap the mold and its spores, so new colonies do not have a chance to start. 

Our building services team does the same with your HVAC units and ducts. Once we clean your ventilation system's components, hidden microbes cannot get whisked out and into the air, nor start to grow inside the system itself. HEPA-grade filters do prevent spores from traveling far, which is why we use them in our equipment. We change out filers in your system or clean non-disposable ones for you.

When mold damage affects a particular area, we often construct a temporary chamber. We do this to protect other areas from the spores that often release into the air. Using an air scrubber, we can create a negative pressure that prevents microbes from escaping while still allowing clean air to enter the area. 

Air and its circulation helps speed up the desiccation of damp areas, making it more difficult for microbes like mold to thrive. Temperature changes do little to prevent mold, and does little to help remediate it from any specific area. Higher temps can make drying out damp areas happen more swiftly, however, so we might choose to use heated air to dry out materials as rapidly as possible. Keeping the interior of your factory arid after we finish mold damage remediation might require desiccant machinery, which we can help install for you.

When your factory in Hazlet, Matawan, or Keyport needs mold damage remediation and prevention, call SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel at (732) 290-3170. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, and always ready to help.

The Inconveniences Involved in Commercial Water Removal in Affected Holmdel Retail Stores

Whether water spills during peak hours when your retail store is teaming with people or during off-hours when no one is around, the incident can lead to several inconveniences. Apart from the need to extract inches of standing water, there is also debris to remove and soiled areas to clean. To address the inconveniences, including minimizing or eliminating the need to close the business, you should involve a professional team that handles commercial water removal.

Various factors can affect the outcome of commercial water removal exercises in Holmdel. Reaction time can be faster during peak hours since someone is likely to notice water flowing in unexpected areas immediately, unlike a spill that happens when the store is closed. Despite the quick reaction, coordination is necessary to get people out and remove the water conveniently. Our SERVPRO teams can help in many ways, including arriving quickly at the loss site and isolating the affected areas. We also have safety gear, such as wet floor signs to caution customers and staff about affected areas preventing accidents.

A burst pipe or other source can dump thousands of gallons of water into the property within a matter of minutes. Removing that water can be a tedious process, especially if the affected area is deep inside a big building. Our SERVPRO crews expect to encounter such situations, so we bring enough equipment and accessories to the loss site. We have assorted pumps, including submersible and truck-mounted ones. We also have long hoses and other accessories to manage the extraction.

Apart from stagnant water, water spills also leave wet materials and even moisture in the air. Removing such moisture can be difficult, especially when the wet material is concealed behind other materials. For example, reaching wet insulation requires the removal of wall panels. Our SERVPRO technicians handle such steps tearing down water damage affected areas and rebuilding them once all moisture is gone.

Most of the tasks involved in water removal are tedious. Call SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel at (732) 290-3170 to help dry all moisture from the incident, "Like it never even happened."

Drying Flooring and Equipment in a Holmdel Gym

Depending on the impact of exercises and the traffic that your Holmdel gym receives, the type of flooring that gets chosen has a direct impact on your clients. Rubber flooring options provide some impact resistance for the joints of gymgoers but might have issues when exposed to standing water and high moisture conditions. Our professionals have a fast and knowledgeable response to protect this flooring option as well as much of your equipment in this damaged area.

Rubber gym flooring rolls might often resist water damage to Holmdel gyms, but this fact alone may result in more harm than help for your business. The flooring's inability to absorb any of the pooling or migrating water can help this threat to move throughout other areas of the facility quickly.  This can affect other fixtures and equipment far more susceptible to moisture damage and standing water. Protecting motorized units like treadmills, ellipticals, and other powered machines begin with trusting our SERVPRO team to eliminate any standing water and begin drying efforts quickly when your gym is at risk.
 
Foam flooring is another option, yet unlike the rubber roll floors, you get a much more porous and saturation-susceptible choice. Water damage happening around this flooring might spread less quickly as the absorption volume is much higher. Flooring like high-grade foam has a higher porosity, which can require your business to remove and replace portions if they remain exposed to standing water or elevated moisture levels for too long. Foam is a less popular choice for many gyms because it can wear down more easily over time. SERVPRO can work with proprietors and insurance adjusters in calculating economic considerations for restoring or replacing fixtures including equipment along with structural installations.
 
No matter which flooring your gym chooses, you need to know how to respond to emergencies to protect your investments, employees, and your customers from what could happen. Our SERVPRO team has a 24/7 response to water loss incidents, deploying cutting-edge extractors and drying tools.  With truck-mounted extractors, wet vacs, riding Rovers, and portable gear, we can swiftly remove visible water. Then our skilled WRT water damage restoration technicians can strategically place air movers, axial fans, and a variety of dehumidifiers to restore the structure to its preloss condition. “Like it never even happened.”
 
While there are dozens of pressing concerns for any business owner contending with water losses, our SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel team can help. Our business is to keep you in business. Give us a call anytime disasters strike at (732) 290-3170.
