Lafayette Day Care Water Damage Disaster Averted
Water Damage Disaster
The mission of preschools or daycare centers focuses on the health and well-being of the young children attending on a daily basis. Water damage within the premises causes grave concerns for both the parents and the owners of the school or center. SERVPRO responds professionally and quickly in restoring the surroundings back to preloss condition with minimal disruptions for the children or their families.
A malfunctioning dishwasher in the kitchen sent food-filled water throughout the common areas. A timely response from one of our restoration teams brings the water damage in your Lafayette daycare center under control fast. Our technicians complete advanced training in abating contaminated water, including comprehensive practice in using our high-efficiency water removal and drying equipment. We familiarize ourselves with local regulations so that we dispose of the tainted water appropriately.
Carpeted areas receive intensive attention as the children are often working and playing directly atop them. We use extractors to pull the majority of the water out of the fibers and recommend removal and replacement of the padding. This decision helps accelerate drying of the actual carpeting. Typically we raise areas of the carpet to direct airflow both above and below the fibers. Periodic measurements of the moisture content guide our decisions to add dehumidifiers, heat, and determines when the drying completes.
Evaluating the risks of the dirty water saturating your childcare setting is second nature to SERVPRO team members. We realize the youngsters under your care may be susceptible to the increased airborne mold particles due to microbial infestations, so our restoration plan includes systemic antimicrobial treatments after water removal and the establishment of drying targets. We inspect all affected areas carefully and monitor for any evidence of mold growth. We have certified mold remediation specialists in the event of a microbial infestation.
Water damage always requires fast action, but SERVPRO is sensitive to the unique role of your center in the lives of the children and their families. Closing the center is extremely disruptive to your clientele, so we take all measures to perform the necessary work swiftly and attempt to allow areas to remain open for the children. Given the critical nature of your services, consider setting up an Emergency Ready Profile and Plan with us. Future water or other damage is easier to manage if we work together on a joint restoration blueprint.
