SERVPRO techs have the knowledge and training to clean up any type of water loss in your Lockport business

Commercial water loss situations happen in local Lockport business properties in various ways, but the one thing they all have in common is they need fast action to minimize the loss. While it is not possible to absolutely avoid a pipe break or flood damage, doing monthly inspections of your property and having environmental monitoring installed can assist in limiting damage.

What is the Best Way to Handle Commercial Water Damage from a Toilet Backup?

While a pipe burst or supply line issue can dump a large amount of water quickly within a business property. When the water contains solid waste and other sewage byproducts it requires professional cleanup as the water in Lockport is hazardous to come into contact with because it can include:
    •    Pathogens such as Hepatitis B and C  
    •    MRSA  
    •    E. Coli bacteria

SERVPRO technicians have the safety equipment to remove and dispose of the wastewater, also known as "black water," within the guidelines of municipal regulations. They also put up containment to keep any airborne droplets from spreading and wear respirators to inhibit any chance of accidentally aspirating contaminants during the cleanup.

Additionally, the odor is an issue with most types of water loss, and a huge issue when it is a black water situation. The technicians have access to various types of odor control equipment. In many instances, a multi-layered approach gets used so that both airborne and embedded odors get neutralized.

Before reopening the business, the techs scope the property and verify all the water got extracted, the property has been dried and disinfected, and no residual odors are remaining.
