Preventing Water in Concrete Subflooring of Twin Falls Offices

Short pile carpeting is a traditional flooring material for many of the office buildings here in Twin Falls. Despite how common this component might be, it is often not the priority when substantial water loss situations take place in the office. Management would consider the impact on electronics, furniture, and dividers to be the most significant loss. However, when moisture gets into concrete subflooring material, it might not be a manageable condition to address.

In your office building, there are often dozens of employees working around the clock, which can make it challenging to address water damage in your Twin Falls building whenever it occurs. Our SERVPRO professionals also understand the impact that standing water and migrating moisture can have on the fixtures still in place in the office building, including the computer systems, desks, and drywall. Knowing how to help your building can not only save you money but get your staff back on the premises as soon as possible.

The best solution that we can often offer bustling office buildings is to allow them to remain open in a limited capacity. At the same time, we work to address loss effects around the work already occurring in the building. The installation of containment barriers can benefit this effort in many ways:

    •    Fewer cross-contamination threats
    •    More efficient and concentrated drying efforts
    •    Allows clients and staff to be in the building while mitigation and restoration continue

Preventing water from penetrating the subflooring of your building space begins with the fastest drying of the short-pile carpets. We even have a team of talented contractors that can remove the saturated carpets to protect the concrete beneath it. Drying mats and other specialty drying tools can help to remove moisture trapped in concrete surfaces. However, due to its low porosity, it is often possible to prevent this penetration from ever occurring in the first place.

Addressing water migration is one of the first steps in determining what your local office needs after a disaster. No matter how we can help, give our SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties team a call today at (208) 735-1447.
