Don't Let Water Cause Damage To Your Chicago Heights Thrift Store

Commercial Don't Let Water Cause Damage To Your Chicago Heights Thrift Store Water damage might not initially seem like something serious, but the damage is often more widespread and hazardous than you might expect.

Restoring Your Chicago Heights Thrift Store After Water Damage

From the good nature of those living in the Chicago Heights area, your thrift store continues to see donations of wares and clothing throughout the year. With the steady flow of foot traffic you can expect on a daily basis, a simple and even minuscule water incident that occurs in the building could impede your ability to serve the community and conduct business as you might like. While your business likely has competent employees capable of mopping up messes, leaks and significant spills can often be more challenging to restore adequately than they initially appear.

While many might believe that water damage in your Chicago Heights store is little more than the visible pooling that you can see on the floor, this is rarely the case. Water can quickly penetrate seams and creases in the flooring material to affect subflooring and concrete below the surface. Our SERVPRO professionals have advanced technology to quickly dry out affected areas of your property and to work to identify further moisture pockets beyond what our eyes can see upon inspection.

From the moment that our team arrives and establishes the scope of the damage throughout the store, we work to remove any items and stock that you might have in the area that could become affected by moisture and dampness. Our SERVPRO technicians then can work to set up our drying equipment in specific points to maximize drying efforts. We determine these points using our thermal imagery cameras that detect the presence of moisture and can indicate where drying is most necessary.

We aim to save as much of the original materials within your facility as possible to limit the time that your doors have to stay closed to potential customers. We offer 24-hour support for emergencies to ensure that we can get to work on drying out water damage as efficiently as possible to protect your investment in the property.

Water damage might not initially seem like something serious, but the damage is often more widespread and hazardous than you might expect. Give our SERVPRO of Chicago Heights / Crete / Beecher rapid response team a call whenever disaster strikes at (708) 672-0077.
