Contact Professionals Who Can Perform Commercial Water Removal in Your Montrose Apartment Building

Water damage in Montrose area apartment buildings can occur because of windows that are not appropriately sealed. Faulty windows can cause moisture to seep inside, and this can trigger many issues, including warped wood, mold infestation, and ruined drywall. Another common cause of water damage in apartment buildings is burst pipes.

What is the water restoration process for a burst pipe?

To perform commercial water removal in your Montrose apartment building, SERVPRO's trained technicians can begin by assessing the damage. We can then plan the mitigation and restoration process based on the severity of the damage. Some of the assessments we can perform include:

- Identifying the specific location of the leak.
- Determining the path the water followed throughout the property utilizing moisture detection tools.
- Determining which areas in the property have water damage such as walls, ceilings, fixtures, and flooring.
- Determining the best way to dry your property and the equipment to use.

What are the consequences of water damage in an apartment building?

The obvious repercussion of water damage in a multi-family dwelling is destruction to the property. Water can ruin different types of floods, including vinyl, carpeting, wood, and tiles. It can also destroy the subfloor below carpeting.

Water can also make its way into other surfaces where it can cause additional damage like ceilings. If water pools on the floor above, the ceiling of the floor below can sustain damage. Drywall can also get damaged because it absorbs moisture. At times, it is necessary to repair or replace the bottom section of the water-damaged walls.

The belongings in affected apartments can also get damaged. Mold infestation is the other issue, and it can cause health problems to tenants.
