Pipe Bursts or Leaks in Structural Cavities Require Several Types of Water Damage Restoration in San Jose Buildings

Substantial damage incidents can significantly impact a property, especially open areas like commercial office buildings. Water spread can overwhelm contents and traditional office materials like glue-down carpeting and wood furniture.

Accessing the Water Damage Source

The first step to resolve water damage in San Jose office buildings after disasters is to determine the source of this water emergency. The emergence point of water damage through the ceiling or wall system might not exclusively point to the problem area. Still, it can be a start to controlled demolition to find where plumbing issues exist and repair these breaches to restore this vital service.

Cleaning Up Water Damage

Cleaning up after water loss incidents combines many actions taken through the mitigation and early restoration phases. When pipe bursts occur, the result can be destructive as water spreads rapidly until this supply is severed. To adequately clean up after these incidents, approaches vary considerably, including:

  • Extraction
  • Drying
  • Carpet vacuuming
  • Debris removal
  • Surface wipe cleaning

Replacing Destroyed Materials

The benefit of a contractor license is our ability to replace damaged structural elements as necessary during water restoration. Where utilities are hidden in structural cavities throughout the office building, water can damage specific surface materials like the tile of drop ceilings and drywall covering the wall systems after only a short exposure period. It is most often easier to replace these items rather than attempt restoration.

There are many stages to repairing and restoring water damage to office buildings. Even with the fast response of our experienced SERVPRO of NE San Jose team, excessive water damage incidents can take several days to even weeks to resolve. It is vital to get these services started as soon as possible to limit the impact on your structure. Call today at (408) 834-7663.
