Commercial Storm Damage Effecting your Commercial Establishment You can always depend on SERVPRO of Bowie for any of your water and storm damage needs at (301)-459-0444

Mother Nature can strike at any time and at any place.  When a severe storm blows through, it can bring with it heavy rain, flooding, high winds, lightning, hail, and even tornadoes.  The damage that storms can inflict on buildings will vary depending on the type and severity of the storm.  Some of the potential kinds of damage that different storms can cause are cracked or shattered windows, roof damage from hail, damage from fallen branches/trees or even water damage from flooding. If that damage isn’t repaired quickly, interior damage, mold, and damage to equipment and inventory can follow - not to mention the disruption caused to your employees and customers.  The costs of repairs to commercial buildings, in particular, are likely to be substantial due to the high concentration of glass used in these structures. Without the full and timely payment of insurance benefits, rebuilding and repairing can be prohibitively expensive.

SERVPRO of Bowie understands that severe weather can happen without notice and cause water damage to your commercial property.  As a trusted restoration company, we’re dedicated to responding immediately to water and storm damage emergencies.  We have the experience and advanced training that enables us to restore your property quickly. We use scientific drying principles and provide validation and documentation that your property is dry and the job is complete.

A local Bowie Verizon Wireless store ran into some unfortunate circumstances when it was discovered that the shop had gone through an attempted break-in. The photograph included here shows just one of our many trained clean-up professionals at the scene of the crime dealing with the damages from the setback. When our team arrived at the scene we found a good part of the store to be covered in fire extinguisher agent. In order to ensure safety and deal with any potential health hazards, industry grade air scrubbers were set in order to filter out any potentially harmful substances in the air. Luckily for the manager of the store, no job is too large nor is any damage too severe for our amazing team at SERVPRO of Bowie and the customer was left satisfied.

Auto Store Mold Cleanup

6/29/2018 (Permalink)

Any business owner can tell you just how annoying it can be to have to stop production in order to deal with a water or mold damage. Unfortunately, leaving spots of water or moisture unattended, resulting in the growth of mold spores, is not uncommon and in most cases, it’s not any single person’s fault. Luckily, there is always a way to prevent the issue from occurring again and precautions one can take to make sure the likelihood of it happening in the first place is lowered.

             You can't mold-proof a property, but you can make it mold-resistant. Do an audit of the property: where are the problem areas? Do you notice frequent condensation on windows? Is there a water stain on the ceiling from a persistent leak? Preventing mold from growing or spreading might be as simple as ripping up the carpet in a damp basement, installing mold-resistant products, or repairing damaged gutters. Or it may be a matter of major excavation and waterproofing. Whatever the case, address the problem as soon as possible. It might cost some money up front, but it will surely be more costly down the road if mold continues to grow unchecked.
