SERVPRO Assists with Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Yakima

All restaurants have more water supply lines and appliances that use H2O than other commercial buildings. Since restaurants use running water constantly throughout the day, these buildings are at risk of suffering from a mishap. The ice machine inside your eatery is one appliance that uses water; if it malfunctions, a disaster could occur. Sometimes when ice machines break, they spray water and flood out your structure.

Any time water leaks into your restaurant, it is wise to have professionals perform commercial water mitigation at your Yakima property. Even though most restaurant floors contain hard surfaces that repel moisture, a water leak could cause problems with other building materials or contents. For example, moisture could soak your drywall and cause your wall studs or ceiling trusses to get wet. 

When dealing with wet walls, our technicians work towards removing moisture quickly so that secondary issues do not take place. Mold can grow inside your wall cavities on the back of drywall or on wooden studs if prompt action is not taken. Depending on the severity of the damage, we can often save sections of your walls that got wet.

Setting up air movers and dehumidifiers can help speed up the natural evaporation and drying processes. If your walls became saturated after the leak, we could also set up an injection drying system to pump warm, dry air into your wall cavities. We can drill holes into the walls behind your baseboards when installing an injection drying system. The tubes for the drying system then get inserted into these holes, and we run the machine until your walls are back to normal moisture levels.

Other services we can offer after a water leak:

  • Restorative carpet cleaning
  • Content pack-ins and pack-outs
  • Water extraction services
  • Deep cleaning of all affected areas

If the ice machine inside your eatery ever breaks or the lines running to it break, call SERVPRO of Yakima at (509) 972-6707.
