How Can SERVPRO Help Flooded Lenoir City Restaurants?
No Matter the Cause, Flood Damage Can be Destructive to Your Lenoir City Business
Flood damage can rapidly overtake restaurants or other businesses in the area after storm damage. Our SERVPRO team can respond fast with mitigation and cleaning services to help.
Determining the Existing Flood Damage Threat
Job scoping can be beneficial in reducing the impact of flood damage for Lenoir City restaurants and businesses. This service ensures that our technicians have the appropriate information to prepare a focused flood restoration and cleaning plan to overcome flood damage quickly. This process carefully evaluates services, contents, and other exposed areas to determine where immediate attention is necessary, and other restoration practices can follow suit. Much of this job scoping process as intended to provide:
- A focused flood restoration plan
- Calculated estimate of job costs
- Timeline for restoration and recovery
Removing Standing Flood Water from the Premises
Floodwater extraction can also be a priority for our responding technicians and one that requires multiple tools used in succession to overcome several inches of pooling in many cases. Our team must address standing water concerns with circulating debris and solids, making the choices for extraction limited to those with larger intake and discharge hoses and higher power output, such as are self-priming trash pumps and truck-mount extractors.
Surface Cleaning and Content Recovery
Modern kitchen spaces in restaurants and cafes often feature stainless steel counters and cabinetry, as this is easy to clean and less likely to absorb odors and other threats from years of use. When flood damage impacts these surfaces, cleaning is often possible to avoid tear-out and reconstruction. Porous materials are less fortunate in this regard, as they will be subject to removal and discarding when contaminated water exposure occurs. This is similar to contents in the restaurant, regarding what can be cleaned and what must be discarded. We fixate on relocating any items not directly impacted by the flood to prevent irreparable harm while flood restoration continues.
Off-site cleaning options for recovered items can include:
- ESPORTA Wash Cleaning
- Ultrasonic Tank Cleaning
- Ozone Chamber Deodorization
Can SERVPRO Conduct Reconstruction and Repair Services?
Because we have a general contractor license that permits us to conduct specific reconstruction and repair actions necessary for the property, we can save customers time and money on this phase of flood damage restoration. Often prolonged exposure of floodwater to flooring can result in a need for baseboard removal and thorough assessment of the structural integrity of the tile or concrete flooring in the kitchen areas. Fixtures like shelves, trim, and other construction elements must often be removed during the controlled demolition process and replaced once flood damage restoration services are complete.
As threatening as flood damage might be to your restaurant, our SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties team can help you get back in business quickly. We understand how quickly these situations can get out of control and impact other areas of your business, so we establish direct containment and cleaning methods to help.
