Your Kalispell Office Building Can Be Restored After A Flood

Addressing Widespread Flooding in Your Kalispell Office Building

The bathrooms next to the large open area containing the bulk of cubicles and workspaces in your Kalispell office building can be the cause of widespread flood losses. When natural flooding conditions get met outside of the building, sanitary sewers cannot always keep up with the influx of rushing waters. Large culvert networks connected to bathroom drainage systems in your office building can become clogged with debris, allowing floodwater to back up into the office from the bathrooms.

Because you have likely vacated the office building with the flood damage in Kalispell neighborhoods, the management of the facility does not get their first look at the extent of the damage until much of this water has started to recede or at least stopped rising and worsening. Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to make sense of the work that must happen in the building to return your business to preloss condition, beginning with the extraction.

We have multiple cutting-edge tools ideal for fast and thorough extraction of your flooded office space. Because your main floor of the facility is open air, you can have a considerably sized damage area to address with electric sump pumps and light wands.

Because of the potential contamination of the floodwater, exposed materials like the short pile carpeting on the main office floor must get removed and later replaced by our licensed (#247200) commercial contractors. Depending on the office furniture exposed, some of these items can get cleaned and dried and remain usable in the space. Wooden dividers made of laminated particleboard can delaminate and swell within a short period, requiring replacement.

Drying out the damaged areas is vital to reduce the likelihood of mold colonization. Because humidity levels within the building are exponentially higher following flooding, we can work to utilize air movers for evaporative drying techniques along with refrigerant dehumidifiers to pull moisture from the environment to improve drying efficiency.

As damaging as a flood can be to your office building, the right professionals can help to save the owner time and money. It is our business to get you back in business, and you can trust the experience of our SERVPRO of Flathead County team to do just that. Give us a call anytime at (406) 300-0435.
