Drying Out Structures after Removing the Water Mitigates the Losses for Oceanside Property Owners--So Call SERVPRO!
Water Cleanup in Oceanside in a Home Office Has Special Challenges
Working from your Oceanside home has its perks; however, water damage can halt a home-based virtual business just as much as a brick and mortar facility. Fortunately, SERVPRO handles any type of water loss.
A home office transcription worker, after a pipe burst in her Oceanside home, caused a large amount of water to affect the area where she worked. The water soaked the carpet, and she was concerned about her equipment and files.
When the technicians arrive on-site, they approach each job with compassion for what the property owner is experiencing. They find out what is essential to the homeowner in the loss area and make that element of the restoration services a priority for removal and cleaning first. It does not matter if an item has monetary or sentimental value; if it is essential to the property owner, it is important to the techs at SERVPRO.
Move Out Contents as Needed
The computer, transcription equipment, and locked filing cabinet needed removal during mitigation as the cabinet was fabricated from metal with the potential for rust, and the homeowner wanted to have her computer and equipment tested to ensure the high moisture conditions did not damage it before using it.
Water Removal and Equipment
When the water loss occurred less than 24 hours before, there is often a good chance that the carpet can dry in place, sometimes using a method called "floating." The techs spend time extracting the water using weighted wands to assist in pushing out the moisture from the padding and carpet. This attention to detail helps lessen the time needed to dry.
Drying the Office in Place
Techs put the desk and chair up on blocks for drying as they showed zero signs of water loss and made of materials that would fare well to dry in place. Once the room dried, the techs set the office back up for the homeowner, so she could get back to the business of transcribing for her clients.
SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside at (516) 536-1801 helps property owners with any size water cleanup and makes the loss to the home "Like it never even happened."
