Water Damage After Commercial Power Outage In Nashua
Water Damage After A Power Outage
Convenience and grocery stores rely on vast numbers of coolers and freezers to keep food and drink safe and palatable for customers, and large quantities of ice available. Electricity failures due to storms or stressed infrastructure leave the contents vulnerable to defrosting and spoilage. SERVPRO has the technicians and equipment to abate the water damage from the melting in retail settings.
A long-term power outage caused water damage to your mini-mart in Nashua. You stock significant stores of ice for local residents and travelers, and the melt of that inventory caused overnight flooding of the floors in the store and the back room. The freezers and coolers holding beverages and food also added water to the problem as frost melted and drop pans overflowed. We offer cutting edge water removal and drying equipment and a well-trained crew of certified damage restorers to assist with cleanup and drying of your commercial space.
Water damage needs immediate attention to ensure the integrity of your building’s structure as well as protect the public from any collateral damage such as microbial infestation. SERVPRO crews react within hours of your request for help, bringing truck-mounted pumps and water extractors that need no external source of power for operation. We remove standing water and search for areas where hidden pockets of moisture formed during the melt. Eradicating all sources of flood water is critical to avoid continuing risk of mold growth or deterioration of building materials or fixtures.
The tile floor under the coolers and freezers undergoes an evaluation to make certain no further attention is necessary after water extraction. If the subfloor is also saturated, SERVPRO may position fans in any basement or crawl space beneath the area. Tiles may be lifted if access is limited to move air through. Air movers and dehumidifiers help reduce the moisture content in affected areas of your store. The presence of unrefrigerated food increases the possibility of mold growth, so we apply proper professional antimicrobial products to minimize the chance of colonies proliferating.
We work with your insurance company throughout the process, documenting your good faith efforts to remediate a tough situation. Our crews are trained to assist with the cleanup and disposal of foodstuffs as well or work with your staff or another contractor to complete a comprehensive restoration of your convenience store.
