SERVPRO Keeps New Smyrna Beach Ceilings Dry and Offices Open

SERVPRO Works Fast to Keep Your Business Up and Running

Many businesses in this region of Florida have experienced flooding. In fact, it was only last October that Hurricane Matthew blew through town and filled hundreds of buildings with water. So, dealing with excess moisture is nothing new for the area.

Nevertheless, the restoration of water damaged businesses involves much hard work. Flooding can be particularly devastating for offices because the loss of paper records can cause havoc with customers, vendors, and suppliers. This issue is why commercial water removal in New Smyrna Beach needs to be arranged as soon as a problem has been identified.

Often, further damage is caused when water trapped in the roof (after a storm) leaks through ceiling tiles. Fortunately, the experts at SERVPRO can dry out damaged ceiling materials in a matter of days, if they are salvageable.

The Decision to Restore
At SERVPRO, we treat all damaged items with courtesy and respect, whether they are in an office or a retail store. However, every building contains a wide range of materials, and some are easier to dry and clean than others. In the interest of fairness and good business sense, our technicians always offer their opinion on whether or not an item is worth restoring. It is then up to you, and your insurance company to decide how to proceed.

This is relevant to ceiling tiles because they are easy to dry, but water intrusion can end up leaving unsightly brown stains. Some business owners choose to replace the roof of an affected room in its entirety after space has been thoroughly dried out. On the other hand, as ceiling tiles are fitted segmentally, we can also remove the stained pieces and dry and clean the rest. The size of the affected area, the quality of the tiles and the suspension hardware, all have a voice in the scope of the water damage.

The Drying Process
Once the technicians have had a good look at the damage, they will be able to formulate a plan for drying and restoring the ceiling. The first thing that they will do is remove the tiles because they can dry faster in a temperature controlled area. Also, if there is moisture present in the roof of the tiles, it needs to be eliminated first.

Fortunately, office spaces are usually are an open floor plan and relatively easy to get around. Lifting and positioning dehumidifiers inside the ceiling cavity should be fairly straightforward. The process can be complicated somewhat if there is much ductwork to dry, but we can work around it or clean HVAC systems with deodorizers and fans if necessary. Typically, with significant water intrusion above the ceiling, the entire infrastructure requires an evaluation to determine the degree of restoration.

Restoring water damaged ceiling tiles is just one of the tasks which SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach/Titusville deals with on a regular basis. We are a highly experienced water damage repair company, and we are based in your area. Call us 24/7 at (321) 264-0205 for immediate help.
