How Can I Dry Up Water Losses Quickly in My Mount Vernon Gym?

6/17/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO warehouse with drying equipment SERVPRO has the equipment and experts to your business needs after a water incident occurs.

Standing water and excessive moisture can lead to hazardous conditions in your gym, so our professionals can help with efficient and effective extraction and drying solutions. 

No matter how water losses originated in your Mount Vernon gym, how you respond to this emergency can make the difference in how much this disaster ultimately costs. For businesses like yours, the most considerable losses happen when the structure must remain shut down to allow for restoration and recovery efforts to occur. Because we recognize how water losses can devastate your gym, we work to take whatever possible steps exist to keep your doors open to your members during the restoration the building needs. 

From addressing standing water concerns to utilizing multiple drying tools, our professionals take direct actions against water damage in your Mount Vernon gym. Because of the expensive equipment throughout the main areas of your structure, as well as the costly flooring material to reduce the shock on joints during cardio, we begin our restoration of your gym with a thorough assessment of the damage and the spread of water loss effects. 

What are the Benefits of Pre-Job Assessments? 

In nearly all of the restoration jobs that our SERVPRO team undertakes, we ensure that all of our technicians and specialists are on the same page. Through a process known as job scoping, we can compile several pieces of critical information about the current water loss and determine what personnel and equipment are necessary to make a difference. There are specific benefits to allowing this evaluation to occur before much of the mitigation or restoration processes, and these include: 

  • Current Conditions - The most direct benefit of a pre-mitigation assessment of the property is a determination of the existing damages to the gym. These are the immediate conditions that must get addressed. 
  • Content Assessment - With several valuable pieces of equipment throughout the facility, our content management team can determine which of these units is in harm's way. If machines can get relocated or protected from migrating water, this can save time and money during the restoration phases. 
  • Documentation for Insurance - Because many commercial structures like yours would lean on their insurance policies to help absorb some of the costs of this restoration, this pre-job scoping process compiles the needed documentation for these insurance adjusters to approve damage claims. 

How Can I Remove Trapped Water in My Gym Floor? 

Some of the most significant investments that you make in your gym is in its flooring materials. Whether you go with a rollout rubber mat floor style or textured soft tiling, it is sturdy and built to last. Ideally, our responding technicians focus on addressing these moisture concerns in the flooring as soon as possible to protect this investment. Some of the tools or processes that might be a part of this include: 

  • Air MoversHigh-velocity portable turbine units blast air to specific points where moisture and dampness are concerns. If water has moved beyond the surface, centrifugal units can get directed against the subflooring. 
  • Drying Mats - Drying these flooring materials can sometimes prove successful with the use of our floor mat drying system. These mats draw steady moisture from the affected material, which can get continually monitored with surface moisture meters. 
  • Controlled Demolition - In some cases where water damage is too widespread or flooring materials have begun to warp and distort with oversaturation, controlled demolition is the only suitable solution. Our in-house contractors can remove only the damaged portions of flooring to make reinstallation more efficient and less costly. 

How Can I Be Sure the Problem is Gone? 

There are many concerns that business owners have from a disaster, even after restoration work completes. You want assurances that the money invested in drying out the gym was well-spent and that worse conditions do not await you in the immediate future. We have several tools and devices that can provide that peace of mind by showing you the extent of our drying efforts. Also, we can ensure that we have successfully addressed the cause of the water damage so that this same situation does not threaten your gym again. We utilize several strategies to give you peace of mind after restoration, including:

With effective containment, it is possible to keep your doors open in a limited capacity while restoration and drying complete. If not, we can work around the clock to get your doors back open as soon as possible "Like it never even happened." Give our SERVPRO of Skagit County team a call today at (360) 873-8744.
