Commercial Water Mitigation Service to Restore Damaged Concrete Floors in Mississauga
How SERVPRO Cleans and Repairs Water Damaged Flooring in Mississauga
Commercial water mitigation may be required in a retail store with a concrete floor for different reasons. In most instances, drain and water supply pipes run through ceilings and walls, and if they burst or develop leaks, there is a possibility of water accumulation on the floor. Though concrete is durable and strong, it is also vulnerable to water damage.
When your Mississauga business experiences a water damage incident, the concrete flooring can absorb the water and develop significant damage levels. If the water source was a burst septic tank, you expect to deal with severe contamination since you're dealing with black water. Our SERVPRO technicians perform the following steps during the water mitigation process:
- Safety: We wear gloves, respirator masks, and goggles to protect us from exposure to contaminants in the black water. We also ensure the affected area is isolated to prevent further contamination in other areas.
- Contamination removal: We use chemical and mechanical cleaning methods to remove the sewage. For instance, we can remove surface contaminants through high-pressure washing. Then, we can apply a disinfectant to kill harmful bacteria.
- Drying: Using heaters, we can speed up the evaporation process and remove the vapor from the air through dehumidification. Our SERVPRO technicians also ensure the site is well-ventilated.
Once the concrete is dry, we assess the floor and determine the degree of damage. It is time to watch out for cracks, warping, and much more. A patching compound can repair minor water damage, but when the damage is so severe, we may cut through the affected sections and do the necessary repairs. We can use a concrete sealer to protect it from future moisture damage.
