Don't let water damage shudder your manufacturing operations. Call SERVPRO of South Columbus for fast remediation.

Commercial Water Removal Experts from Columbus Talk About Drying Cinder Blocks And Concrete Walls

Many manufacturing facilities in the Columbus region have offices that reside above them. Should the plumbing inside these offices fails, then moisture can enter your manufacturing floor from above, which can force you to conduct extensive commercial water removal. Moisture entering from the ceiling can be catastrophic because anything below the roof can get damaged due to gravity. Electrical shorts are possible if your light fixtures get filled with water.

Any time you have a plumbing failure, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. When conducting commercial water removal in Columbus, we are Faster To Any Size Disaster. Our goal is always to return your manufacturing facility to the way it was before, "Like it never even happened." We know that when problems arise at your place of business, that loss of productivity can become expensive. We always try to conduct our restoration procedures in a way that reduces your loss of revenue.

When dealing with manufacturing facilities, our SERVPRO technicians know that many of the walls that cinder blocks and concrete make up your building's structure. One of the most critical factors when drying out cinder blocks is the blank space in between them. When water flows down cinder blocks, it can get trapped inside these gaps. Sometimes we can drain the walls by drilling holes in the mortar at the bottom of the wall.

If water has sat inside your cinder blocks for a long time, we can drill holes in other places in the walls. By creating holes in the cinder blocks, we can force air into the gaps inside them and help speed up the drying process. After your structure is dried, we can quickly patch up these holes.

If concrete inside your manufacturing plant gets wet, we can take further steps to remove the moisture from your walls or flooring slab. When moisture soaks deep into the concrete, we often use a desiccant dehumidifier to pull water from deep inside the non-porous material. Desiccant dehumidifiers work by push air across a silica gel that attracts water molecules. The machine then heats the gel, releasing the moisture.

If your manufacturing plant in Bexley, Reynoldsburg, or Grove City ever suffers from a plumbing failure, call SERVPRO of South Columbus at (614) 863-1392 any day of the week.
