Water damage not only can force employers and landlords to shut down an office building, but can also cause damage that is not easily visible.

No matter the damage, a SERVPRO professional is usually necessary to remediate and repairs, even if you think the repairs are small. Water takes the path of least resistance, so it finds its way through building materials where the water eventually gets trapped and can create rot and mold growth.

Emergency water removal is the first step in preventing more damage to your property. Once the water is out, and the area has been dried by our technicians at SERVPRO of Laurel, we thoroughly inspect your property and figure out what has been affected. We can then focus our efforts on drying just what is damaged. This drying process can usually be finished in a few days and is monitored closely to ensure proper drying. Water damage can be from any of the sources below:

Failures In Your Plumbing
These events can release hundreds of gallons of water quickly into your office building. Malfunction can result from broken pipes, malfunctioning sprinkler systems, loose hoses and other plumbing sources.

Local Flooding
Flooding can come from sudden, heavy local rain falls. Downpours this intense can flood gutters, drains and down spouts quickly, and the overflow can cause severe water damage to your business.

Long-Term Moisture & Humidity
Small leaks usually hide and are overlooked, however, over time they lead to water damage problems that need repair. Ceilings, wall cavities, bathrooms, hallways and attics are the most susceptible areas to mold growth and wood rot from continued exposure. Basements and vented crawl spaces are also environments that can be humid, leading to similar water and mold issues.

Standing water can fast turn into damage that is more widespread if it is not cleaned up right away. Mold starts growing in as little as 24 hours after a water intrusion and can spread through your building and do much harm to the structural integrity, plus to the health of your employees and any equipment inside.

If you want a trusted, professional company to come out and assess water damage and to begin the restoration process, give SERVPRO of Laurel and SERVPRO of Greenbelt NE/Beltsville E a call today, 301-323-8862 or 301-615-4884.

Our powerful truck-mounted water extraction equipment and our specially-trained technicians are just what you need when a water disaster strikes your office building!
