My Town Experienced a Flood but Only Part of My Business Flooded- What Should I Do?
SERVPRO Flood Restoration Specialists Can Create Drying Zones to Target Only Impacted Areas of Your Agoura Business.
Flooding for an Agoura business does not mean that your company is doomed forever, especially if only a portion sustained damage. SERVPRO technicians establish drying zones to target only the affected areas of the structure and its interior. We understand that walking into your office and seeing the break room flooded from an intense summer storm can hinder the office productivity and impact your daily business. We understand that by targeting only the loss-area you can run the rest of your office as normally as possible.
What is a Drying Zone?
A drying zone is just like it sounds; the affected area of your Agoura business can be sectioned off by sealing plastic curtains (polypropylene 6-mil in thickness) along entry-ways. This is particularly effective with flood damage in an office suite setting so that you can still function while the impacted area dries. This way, technicians can control the humidity and temperature in the drying zone to expedite the process while allowing free movement of people and air in other areas. High humidity can also damage electronic equipment, fixtures and furniture.
What Are Some Things to Consider in Drying Zones?
- Air movement equipment facilitates dry air traveling across wet building materials.
- Dry air in the drying zone stays dry and does not become tainted with outside humid air.
- A drying chamber between the affected and unaffected areas allows a place for SERVPRO technicians to dry contents without bringing the items into the untouched area.
There are times when flooding is severe, and many contents sustain damage. In those cases, the items may require attention in an offsite storage facility to aid in their restoration. For 24/7 assistance after a flood, contact SERVPRO of Agoura / Calabasas / Hidden Hills at (818) 991-6292.
