When Water Invades Your Miami Antique Store
A Leaking Pipe in Your Ceiling Can Cause Water Damage Inside of Your Antique Store
The last thing you want to happen inside of the antique shop you own is a water event. Given the antique status of your merchandise, they are not replaceable should they become damaged. Wooden furniture is susceptible to absorbing the water that falls onto it from the ceiling, clothing can become discolored, and any metal could rust.
Leaving unattended water damage inside your Miami antique store can cause microbial growth. It is best to call for help immediately to prevent further deterioration to your merchandise, such as mold. Getting professionals onto the scene of the disaster can help reduce costs and even save your merchandise.
When you phone SERVPRO, we always prioritize working with your schedule. Foot traffic is essential to your business, and we know that the longer your doors are closed, the more money you have lost. SERVPRO can send technicians to your property on any day of the week and at any time. If the pipe begins to leak excessive water right before you close, we can work through the night. If you arrive in the morning to find your shop soaked, we can work through that day.
Our technicians can bring advanced equipment to your store, designed to combat water damage. Once SERVPRO does a brief investigation and develops a drying plan, we can begin the remediation. First, we can move any dry merchandise to your dry storeroom. Once we have the area of damage isolated, we can start to set up our equipment.
SERVPRO uses drying mats, dehumidifiers, air movers, and ventilation box fans to combat water destruction. All of these devices are designed to encourage evaporation and, when used in conjunction, they do so at an accelerated pace. We can use extractors on your carpeted floors. Extractors are a vacuum-like piece of equipment with a heating element attached; they are designed to dry carpet and upholstery as it removes water. After drying your store, we can pack up and allow you to reopen your doors for business.
If a leaking pipe causes water damage in your storefront, never wait to get the help you need. Speak with SERVPRO of South Miami by calling the number (305) 269-8900. We can rush to your business and get the job started right away.
