Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Water everywhere!! What do we need to do here?

When a large warehouse has a pipe break or flood, you might think, "well just suck up the water." The damage that can occur in large warehouses is what is called "secondary damage." The water did no damage do to the concrete floors or the metal raking. The damage occurred when the water evaporated and got the boxes and cartons wet and those items started to loose their integrity and started to break apart.

Imagine if all of the content in a warehouse that is wet started to weaken or show signs of water damage. All of that comment may need to be re-packaged or worse, disposed of. 

Environmental considerations (humidity control) is critical in these situations and by not addressing the "secondary damage" immediately, you might cause the loss to skyrocket in cost and business interruption. 

Address the primary damage; don't forget to evaluate the need for "secondary damage" control.
