Emergency Commercial Water Damage Repair Reduces Downtime

Whether the damage comes from leaky pipes, water heaters, utility sinks, or bathroom appliance mishaps, Yakima businesses need fast-acting restoration services when basement utilities are compromised. A swift response is crucial for rental properties and multi-family buildings to protect tenants and their belongings.

When multi-family units in Yakima need rapid commercial water damage cleanup, SERVPRO® technicians can answer calls for restoration around the clock. SERVPRO’s highly-trained team receives a thorough education in water damage theory and the principles behind its mitigation.

Preventing Large-Scale Basement Water Disasters

Like many types of disaster, prevention is the best possible method for minimizing damages. Fortunately, there are plenty of modern measures business owners can use to address this age-old problem:

  • Regular maintenance of plumbing, sump pumps, and appliances is the most effective prevention method.
  • Waterproofing with sealants or coatings on walls and floors can mitigate many water concerns, especially in basements.
  • Some simple landscaping tips can minimize the presence of water near a commercial building:
    • Ensure grading faces away from the building.
    • Keep large trees and shrubs away from the foundation to prevent damage from root growth.
    • Consider implementing a rain garden in particularly wet areas.

SERVPRO Odor Control for Basement Water Damage

One of the most persistent concerns around moisture is the musty, unpleasant smell it can impart on porous surfaces. This smell often goes hand-in-hand with the presence of microbes. SERVPRO professionals can address both of these concerns by:

  • Removing excess water with hot-water extraction units.
  • Deploying EPA-registered antimicrobial solutions.
  • Drying impacted spaces with air movement and low-grain refrigerant dehumidification.

Odor control, typically with ultra-low volume fogging in cases of large-scale water damage odors, binds odor counteractants with malodor particles to eliminate them.

SERVPRO of Yakima is a phone call away from leaving commercial spaces looking and feeling "Like it never even happened." Property owners can call (509) 972-6707 for service.
