Commercial Building Water Damage
Friday, December 1, 2017
Recently, Joe Taylor Restoration (JTR) received a call concerning a flooded daycare in Deerfield Beach, Florida. We, at JTR, are very familiar with all kinds of commercial building water damage. And when the commercial building is a daycare, experienced and knowledge restoration technicians and staff are of the utmost importance.
Parents rely on a daycare for just that, care for their children during the day while they are at work. That means, a daycare must be back up and running as soon as possible so that parents are not missing days on the job. In addition, a daycare must be clean and safe for the health and well-being of the children. This is something JTR takes very seriously, as commercial building water damage, as well as mold damage, has a greater effect on children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems.
In the case of flooding, water damage dangers in a daycare may involve contaminated water, as well as contamination of children’s toys, baby items, and various containers- most of which will need to be discarded. And if commercial building water damage is not addressed properly and mold begins to grow, dangers for children are on the spectrum of hay-fever-like reactions (such as stuffy nose, red, watery or itchy eyes, sneezing) to asthma attacks. Children (and adults), who are allergic to mold may have more serious reactions that could lead to hospitalization.
Thankfully, the daycare owner in Deerfield Beach was well aware of the dangers of commercial building water damage. She was also aware that it is important to dry water-damaged areas and items that can be salvaged within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth. She called JTR immediately, and we responded to her commercial building water damage emergency in under two hours. Today, the daycare is fully functional, with the teachers and children back in a safe, healthy, properly restored environment.
If your business has experienced commercial building water damage, please don’t wait. Call JTR right away. We will restore your property to its original state, and prevent unwelcome mold growth, whether your business is a daycare, a hospital, a restaurant or anything in between.
