When Floodwaters Check Into Your Tucson Hotel
How to Deal With Commercial Flood Damage in Your Tucson Motel
Flooding is a common occurrence, and it can happen during the main rainy seasons like the monsoon season and the winter rains. It can make roads impassable and can flood even the most well-maintained and modern motels. If flood water enters your motel, quick extraction is essential.
Water can ruin many types of floors from tiles, vinyl, wood floors and the wood subfloor beneath the carpeting. To deal with commercial flood damage in your Tucson Motel, you can call the water damage remediation specialists at SERVPRO. We can assist you to extract the water and then dry and dehumidify your motel.
Apart from ruining the floors, flood water can ruin other surfaces and areas like walls because of their porous surfaces. You may need to repair the bottom section of the water-damaged walls. Water can ruin electrical wiring which can cause fire and electrical hazards to your guests and staff. Water damage can also affect the contents of the building, including the furniture, valuable works of art, and antiques. It can also ruin the personal possessions of your guests, which is a big concern as you may be liable to pay for the ruined items. Further, the guests may post negative reviews of your motel online.
Our SERVPRO technicians can arrive at your motel quickly after receiving your call. We can evaluate the structure and contents to determine which ones can be decontaminated and restored and which items need replacing. The decision to replace or restore depends on the porosity of the materials, the contaminants, and the pretest results. Because we cannot disinfect porous items like carpets, we remove and discard them.
We can use powerful truck mounted or submersible pumps to remove the standing water. Our technicians can then use air movers to circulate air in the affected areas to speed up the drying process. We also use dehumidification equipment to remove the moisture from the air. We check our work by using moisture meters to check the moisture content of damaged materials and then eliminate the moisture.
If your motel has flood damage, SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson can assist you to extract it and dry the affected areas thoroughly. Contact us today by dialing (520) 760-9352 for fast remediation. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
