When Should A DIY Type Hire A Professional Water Removal Team?
Although you can usually handle the day to day minor emergencies on your property, flood water often requires additional hands or tools. When a massive flood flows through your business, two things happen. First, the structural integrity of your building is instantly compromised. Second, the water is filled with harmful bacteria, chemicals, and other toxic material that can affect your property. A prompt and effective response protects your inventory, your equipment, and your employees.
As you assess the crisis, consider three factors:
Do you need more manpower?
Can this be cleaned up with the staff you currently have without sacrificing safety elsewhere? And are your employees knowledgeable? If the water is still standing after several hours or days, there’s no way of knowing what’s in it. Water removal specialists have the skill and equipment necessary to remove the water safely without injury or exposure to whatever is in the water. There’s no need to put yourself or anyone else at risk when you can seek the aid of experienced water removal professionals that can bring a crew solely focused on clean-up.
Could you benefit from better equipment?
Wet boots on a wood floor might require a simple wipe up with a paper towel but standing water creates complex problems. If your space has been flooded, assess the capabilities of your existing clean-up equipment. Could you benefit from industrial equipment such as a trailer mounted dehumidifiers, gale force air movers, and additional industrial-sized generators? Few business own portable air scrubbers to control mold. Using specialized equipment such as negative air machines and portable heaters will help you lessen damage and get your space back to work quickly. Renting expensive, seldom needed, equipment instead of buying will save capital for other business needs.
Are your time and attention better spent on your business?
