A trashcan full of water in a building. SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville understands the stress that comes along with a large water loss. Let us take some stress.

Speed, Training, Specialized Commercial-Grade Equipment, and Project Scalability Place SERVPRO in a Class by Itself When Completing Large-Scale Water Damage Repair in Knoxville

When your Knoxville business suffers a water damage, your first inclination might be to coordinate the clean-up with your on-staff housekeeping personnel. Before you commit to this approach, keep in mind that your facility might not have the specialized equipment needed to remove massive water quantities.

What Is the Time Frame for an Appropriate Water Damage Repair Response in Commercial Buildings?

 Water damage repair in your Knoxville commercial building cannot wait for regular business hours. Building materials and contents deteriorate within minutes to hours of the water incursion, even if the leak or overflow occurred over a weekend or during the wee hours. A response within just a few hours maximum at full working capacity is critical to mitigating any further harm and assuring that disruptions to your everyday operations are kept to a minimum. Waiting for your in-house cleaning crew to assess the situation and obtain required equipment delays the start of mitigation unreasonably, and interferes with your core staff’s ability to provide services and goods to customers.

Does High-Quality Water Damage Repair Require Specialized and Advanced Training?

 Working with a professional water emergency recovery company like SERVPRO ensures that the individuals assessing planning and implementing interventions have the training and a scalable inventory of water extraction and drying tools. Managing contamination concerns, which are often possible in a water damage situation, need guidance from knowledgeable managers up-to-date with the latest local regulations concerning containment and lawful disposal. Our team completes the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) coursework before working on any field project. It brings technicians certified in most, if not all, of the following specialties to your site:

  • Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT)
  • Applied Structural Drying (ASD)
  • Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT)
  • Building Moisture Thermography (BMT)
  • Commercial Drying Specialist (CDS)
  • Odor Control Technician (OCT)

 Allow the capable crews from SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville to assess, plan, and implement the water damage repair agenda in your commercial building. Call us at (865) 862-8907 24-hour a day to schedule a prompt evaluation.
