Warehouses Storms and flooding affect more than just homes, office buildings, and retail stores. Commercial warehouses and offices are just as susceptible to flooding and water damage. And, the extent of the damage incurred can be far greater, with the additional square footage, equipment, and goods contained inside the warehouse. Your Business Can’t Wait Flooding caused by excessive rains, hurricanes, burst pipes, or overflowing toilets can disrupt business operations, and they all require immediate attention. The longer the structure and its contents remain under water or wet, the greater the amount of damage.

Water Extraction and Restoration Services GET RESTORATION EXPERTS adheres to an efficient, proven process when it comes to water removal and building cleanup. Our employees take all necessary precautions, including wearing hazard gear and checking the electrical power to the warehouse. Once we know it’s safe to enter, we deploy our team to work as quickly as possible. Once onsite, we inspect the entire area to understand the scope of the damage. If water is still flooding into the area, we locate the source of water entry and take steps to stop further flooding. It’s critical to know the type of water that has flooded the warehouse, and categorize it appropriately. Water from a burst pipe is not the same as water that has flooded in from outside sources. We assign the categorization based on the level of contaminants and biohazards that may be present—in accordance with IICRC requirements. We also assign a water damage classification depending on how much water has flooded the area, the expected rate of evaporation, and any specialty drying requirements. Once we understand the type of water we’re dealing with, as well as the extent of the flood damage, we use industrial-strength equipment to extract the water from the entire area. We use moisture meters and hygrometers to track levels of residual moisture and dampness in hidden, less obvious locations. Once the water has been extracted, we use heavy duty air movers and fans, dehumidifiers, and heat panels to thoroughly rid the area of moisture. To avoid the growth of mold and bacteria, we also apply an antimicrobial in affected areas. We clean the entire affected area using EPA-approved products. We also decontaminate, sanitize, and deodorize the area, including cleaning the HVAC system to eliminate mold spores and other contaminants from entering back into the environment. Next we inspect all property contents. If they have sustained water damage and are salvageable, they will be removed offsite for temporary storage at a GET RESTORATION EXPERTS facility for cleaning and repair. Items that cannot be salvaged, are removed and properly disposed of. We perform necessary structural repairs and renovations, ensuring our work is to pre-damage standards. We then return the remaining contents to their original location. GET RESTORATION EXPERTS takes pride in helping other businesses recover from what can easily be called devastating circumstances. We cover the entire Maryland-Virginia-Washington, DC, area, and are available 24/7/365.
