SERVPRO Mitigation Efforts Can Quickly Restore Shreveport Businesses

Shreveport does not get the worst storms like the coastal cities. However, rain and tornadoes still cause millions in damage to commercial operations annually. Not all can be stopped, but quick removal of water and debris help immensely.

Once on-site, SERVPRO specialists look for the following to reduce commercial storm damage in Shreveport:

  • Standing water 
  • Damage that leaves the facility exposed
  • Debris inside the building

The first action is to bring in extractors to remove water. By eliminating any pools and puddles, specialists can stop or reduce the chance of concrete floors cracking. The same elimination actions also reduce the chance for mold spores to become active and spread. 

To eliminate interior exposure to the elements, specialists cover damage to the roof and walls with plywood or tarps. This also preserves the interior from animal intrusions and reduces the chance of vandalism.

After removing the water, specialists clear out mud, trash, and everything else brought in by the storm. This prevents stains from forming and reduces pungent odors as well.
