Sometimes the Best Outcome for Commercial Flood Damage in Garrisonville is Reconstruction

We are very good at what we do when we bring our restoration services to a property with commercial flood damage. Many times flood water affects only a portion of a business. In those cases, there is often enough of the original structure that has restoration potential. Sometimes, that is not the case.

SERVPRO mitigated commercial flood damage in a Garrisonville business that received a large amount of loss due to groundwater from heavy rains and the Rappahannock River breaching its banks. The entire property received several inches of water, and unfortunately, the business owner was unable to get into their property for two days and the situation compounded. 

Groundwater is already a category three biohazard and considered contaminated and dangerous to come into contact with. The potential for mold on top of everything else was a concern. The water had receded quite a bit by the time our technicians arrived on site to extract the remaining water as we could tell by the waterlines in the sheetrock. We removed the remaining water and used our generators to power the equipment as water in the property was over the wall plugs, and it was unsafe to use the electricity at the worksite.

We cut away the damaged sheetrock and the tile flooring delaminated from prolonged exposure to excessive moisture and required removal. To assist with airflow, we drilled weep holes in the sheetrock that had not taken on the water to assist with drying the support beams and studs. Under the tile floor, the subfloor was wet, and we used floor mats to deliver warm, dry air to the area. 

After drying and deodorizing the property, we prepped it for reconstruction by sanitizing it to inhibit the growth of mold. Our SERVPRO owner holds a Commercial Contractor License #2705165256, and we can offer property owners:

  • Restoration services from flood damage
