SERVPRO Can Help Take Care Any Aspect That Might Force Your Business to Close Down  

Water intrusion at a furniture outlet can impact your business in many ways, apart from temporary closure or other limited interruptions that happen as you seek a solution. The way you respond to the incident impacts the outcome significantly. Therefore, knowing what to prioritize is crucial. SERVPRO helps Azusa businesses perform mitigation processes correctly to bounce back from an incident, “Like it never even happened.”  

What actions define correctly done water mitigation exercises in Azusa?  

  • Quick action 
  • Exercising caution 
  • Verifying moisture levels  

For water to significantly impact materials, many factors play a role, but the exposure time matters. Faster water removal or other protective steps in Azusa can prevent a wide range of issues, including stopping the spread of damages when taken in time. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you take quick action. For instance, we have both portable and truck-mounted water extractors that expedite water removal.   

What sort of vigilance is necessary for businesses after water intrusion?  

  • Prevention of accidents 
  • Protecting contents  
  • Checking electrical systems  

When surfaces are wet, they tend to be slick, so slip and fall accidents are highly likely. With vast open areas such as the showroom or the reception section in your store, accidents might happen, hurting your staff members or members. Our SERVPRO team can help you avoid such outcomes by setting up warning signs or creating barriers to separate the affected areas from the rest of the facility. We also take precautions to prevent electrical shocks, including circuit checkers and GFCI, when operating electrical equipment.  

Why is it necessary to verify moisture levels? 

The items you have at your furniture store interact with moisture differently. For instance, upholstery items absorb water and become saturated immediately. Wooden items, however, may take some time to absorb significant moisture. Other materials might be hygroscopic, leading to the absorption of water from the air. With such disparities, there is a need to confirm, rather than assume, that items are dry. It is also crucial to establish the level of moisture absorbed by materials.  

It is crucial to know the steps to take when mitigating water damage. Otherwise, call SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina at (626) 387-4111 to help. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
