Call The Experts At SERVPRO To Assist You With Water CleanUp And Restoration To Help Prevent Further Damage To Your Business.

Most restaurants in Shreveport contain a large number of kitchen appliances to aid them in cooking and preparing food. If one of these appliances that use H2O breaks, then it is possible that your kitchen will flood and cause you excessive commercial water damage. Appliances like your industrial ice machine are useful, but they could malfunction and start spilling moisture all over your restaurant's building.

If the ice machine malfunction occurs at night when your business is closed, then hundreds of gallons of H2O could travel throughout your structure and cause several issues with your building materials and contents. During commercial water damage incidents in Shreveport, the moisture can follow gravity and start ruining your floors. Once your floors get wet, the relative humidity levels inside your restaurant can elevate and possibly cause other secondary problems.

If you ever notice that your ice machine has broken and it was pouring out water while your business was closed, it is wise to seek help from a professional company like SERVPRO. We can respond quickly and immediately start working to remediate your problems. First, we can shut off the pipes running to your ice maker and prevent the leak from continuing to occur. Next, we use moisture sensors to test your various contents and structural components to see what might have got wet.

Since your restaurant could have different flooring in your kitchen and dining rooms, our SERVPRO technicians can take various steps to remove moisture from each type of flooring affected. During the extraction phase, we can remove moisture from hard surface floors in your kitchen by vacuuming, mopping, or squeegeeing. If your dining room contains carpets, we can use weighted extraction tools with our truck-mounted extractor to compress the carpets and pull up the liquid.

Then, we can set up air movers and dehumidifiers on top of each of your affected floors to speed up the natural drying and evaporation process. We can dry your wet carpets faster if we pull up a section of it and place air movers underneath them so that air gets pushed under your carpeting.

If you ever have an appliance break and leak moisture into your restaurant's kitchen, call SERVPRO of South Shreveport at (318) 865-4655 any day of the week. We can help you restore your business to the way it was before, "Like it never even happened."
