Deal With Commercial Flood Damage in Your Fort Myers Apartment Building Through Expert Restoration

9/30/2019 (Permalink)

Part of a city and buildings flooded with water. SERVPRO has the expert knowledge when it comes to your Fort Myers building flood.

We will always answer when you call about your Fort Myers water damage. 

Flooding is a problem for millions of people who live in low-lying areas. Water damage is not usually the first concern in the mind of your tenants when they move into an apartment. However, weather conditions can change quickly, and floodwaters can enter your apartment building. 

Commercial flood damage in a Fort Myers apartment building can cause big problems if it has affected several rental units. Flooding can affect you and your tenants in the following ways:

Displacement

The most impairing repercussion of flood damage is displacement. Tenants may take some time away from the affected apartments until the destruction is repaired. 

Loss of personal possessions

Flooding can ruin the personal effects of tenants. SERVPRO franchise professionals can reduce the destruction by moving affected possessions to safe areas and cleaning up the salvageable ones. 

Structural damage 

Water can affect the structural integrity of building materials. For instance, drywall can soften because of exposure to water. 

Cosmetic damage 

Floodwater may cause yellowing of surfaces or stains, and this can lower the market value of affected apartments.

Flood damage restoration for apartments requires a knowledgeable and experienced firm to ensure your tenants are comfortable and contented. Our SERVPRO team can perform water damage restoration for any sized project. Our technicians can inspect the affected areas to determine the extent of the destruction. 

Porous materials like carpet, textiles, and gypsum board absorb moisture quickly and may support microbial growth. Semi-porous materials like unfinished wood absorb moisture slowly and can also support microbial growth. Water may soak into many building materials without creating clear signs of damage. Therefore, we use specialized tools like moisture meters to measure moisture content in affected materials. 

Our technicians make checks progressively to establish how widespread the destruction is. We then concentrate on drying the affected materials. We may also tear them out so that they may be replaced with new materials. If there is standing water, we can remove it using wet/dry vacuums. We also use air moving and dehumidification equipment to eliminate moisture. 

Restoring flood-damaged apartments to their preloss condition can be a huge undertaking. SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda has competent technicians who can help you tackle the damage to make it “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (941) 575-5910 for effective restoration.
