If you have had a flood in your area which has caused damage to your building you need to get this taken care of quickly. If you do not you could lose a lot of money in replacing expensive equipment, flooring, and more. Instead of taking care of things on your own, however, you should contact a commercial flood damage company to help you. Below are three reasons why you should do this.
Uses Professional Equipment
The commercial flood damage uses commercial equipment to quickly get water out of the building. This equipment includes blowers, which are large industrial fans that are much more powerful than anything you could purchase. These fans are placed in different areas of your business.
Another type of equipment is known as a water extraction unit. This is used to extract water from areas, such as from carpeting or wherever there is water standing, such as from flooring. If there is a lot of water the company will use a type of water pump to pump the water out into a receptacle. For a large flood, the company will use an extraction unit that is installed onto a truck.
The company also uses moisture gauges to determine how much moisture is within carpeting and more. Industrial humidifiers are used to help prevent built up moisture which can prevent mold and mildew from growing.
Help You with Insurance
Part of flood damage restoration is contacting your insurance company to submit a claim. Your insurance company will send an insurance specialist to your building to assess the damage. This specialist will prepare paperwork for you to fill out. This paperwork determines how much money the insurance company is going to give you.
To ensure the insurance company gives you the amount of money that will cover all your damage the flood damage restoration company can help. They can do this by going over the report from the insurance specialist to ensure everything is correct. For example, the specialize may not realize how much damage is done to carpeting and that all carpeting will have to be replaced.
In most cases commercial flood damage companies are available 24/7. This way you can contact this company to start the flood damage process. Once contacted, the company will get to your business quickly.
If you choose to do the flood damage restoration on your own, you may not have the type of equipment you need. If not and the flood happens in the middle of the night you would have to wait until morning when establishes are open to get the needed equipment.
