Effects of Commercial Water Damage in a Roseville School and How to Respond

Schools are one of the essential infrastructures in a community with features that differ from other institutions. One of these features is that children, teenagers, or young adults make up the student population in schools. Therefore, school administrations have particular concerns when a water damage incident occurs because students may not know what to do during or after the emergency.

Dealing with commercial water damage in your Roseville school can be stressful. It is not something you can ignore, but you also do not want to suspend learning activities for long due to the disaster. So, what should you do? For starters, examine the losses incurred so that you understand what steps to take. Generally, water loss can affect your school in the following ways:

Property damage

Water affects nearly everything it comes across. From books to furniture, electronics to school records. The damaged items also provide sufficient conditions for mold to develop.

Health hazards

Standing water anywhere poses a health hazard. Therefore, school managers should respond to water damage immediately it happens to protect students and staff from waterborne diseases.

Financial loss 

Whether water damages a single classroom or an entire block, you can expect to incur some costs on repairs.

Disruption of classes

Water intrusion can disrupt the learning process. You, therefore, need a quick response to water damage to avoid losing valuable school time.

At SERVPRO, we use high-quality water extraction and drying equipment to restore water-damaged properties. We can remove water from floors, walls, or other areas quickly using portable pumps. Our technicians then use air movers to increase evaporation and dehumidifiers to remove water vapor from the air.

Even after drying the affected areas, moisture could still be present in some materials. Our technicians can use moisture meters to measure the level of moisture in different materials. Another issue with a water intrusion incident in a school is the growth of microbes. Our SERVPRO crew can use sanitizers to reduce the number of microbes to levels that public health authorities consider safe.

If your school in Garrisonville, Stafford, or Aquia Harbour has water damage, call SERVPRO of North Stafford County at (540) 720-1535 for prompt restoration. We can make the destruction appear “Like it never even happened.”
