How SERVPRO Restores Your Water Damaged Frederick Factory

You can trust the SERVPRO Brand to restore your water damaged factory.

Restoring Normalcy After Commercial Water Damage in Your Frederick Factory

A water spill can quickly derail the routines you have established in your factory. Apart from the deterioration of materials exposed to the water, it also creates various hazards in the work areas, including elevating the risk of accidents. Fast extraction can help minimize the damage levels and restore normal operations. You can achieve the intended results faster when you enlist the help of a professional.

The incident that leads to commercial water damage in your Frederick factory might not be significant, but the open layout that characterizes most factories creates ideal conditions for water to spread. Unlike small premises where the water would form deeper pools easier to extract from one location, in an open space, the water spreads thinly requiring considerable movement during extraction. Our SERVPRO water restoration technicians use equipment such as ride-on high volume extractors, which are best suited for such tasks.

In the chemical-filled environment, spilled water can dissolve and spread chemicals or other substances creating safety issues your employees. Exposure to such dangerous materials is risky, so having the right protective equipment is essential when cleaning the affected areas. Our SERVPRO team takes safety seriously, so we have the equipment to prevent exposure through skin contact, inhalation, or otherwise. Among the PPE, Personal Protective Equipment, we have in our production trucks include:

Chemical Resistant Gloves

Splash Goggles


Full-Body suits

Rubber Boots

Excess moisture in a factory can interfere with the production processes or the general comfort of the workers. Restoring normal humidity levels is therefore essential for optimized production. After extracting standing water, our SERVPRO crews take steps to dry any excess moisture. We run high-speed air movers to increase the evaporation rate then use LGR dehumidifiers, or giant desiccant dehumidifiers to extract moisture from the air. To reduce uncertainty, we make calculations and set a drying goal, ensuring that you know approximately when your facility can be fully operable.

When there is a water loss incident in your Mt Airy, Brunswick or Middletown factory, call SERVPRO of Frederick County to help. You can reach us at (301) 662-1747 any time. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO Techs with Personal Protective Equipment Can Restore Trauma Scene Incidents in Frederick Commercial Stores

Efficient Cleanup for a Trauma Incident at a Frederick County Grocery Store

Traumas like what our team recently dealt with in a Frederick County food store happen without warning. With no way to prepare for these often stressful and overwhelming circumstances, business owners depend on the expertise and the skills of our professional cleaning technicians to address every potential concern in an efficient restorative approach. With an entire area of the store that must get cleaned, disinfected, and recovered, you need experience. We have a team with both training and continued education to know safe practices for pathogenic threats, viral risks, and other detrimental circumstances.

When our SERVPRO professionals were called one evening to this Frederick biohazard trauma scene caused by a personal tragedy at a grocery store, we knew how vital a fast response would be. The upset owner hoped to have the store back open again the following day, and that would require each phase of recovery to be completed, including the thorough cleaning, deodorization, and disinfection. Through the energetic efforts of our entire team, we were able to achieve this goal, and the grocery store did open again the following day “Like it never even happened.”

With trauma recovery, every moment counts. Staining and worse situations can arise from allowing bodily fluid to remain on surfaces for prolonged periods. The American Bio Recovery Association (ABRA) provides guidelines and certifications. We utilized the inventory of our OSHA-approved cleaning and disinfection agents, which can restore surfaces and exposed materials without requiring demolition and replacement. These same products helped to ensure that we could meet the deadline of our client.

As this was still an active investigation supervised by the police, our SERVPRO technicians also had to work alongside these first responders to meet specific safety guidelines and strict protocols to ensure we did not impede this investigation happening adjacent to our recovery efforts.

We know that when contending with traumas, it is difficult to think of anything other than your employees, your customers, and your building. We understand the need for subtlety and compassion during the cleanup service. Let our SERVPRO of Frederick County biohazard restoration specialists help you shoulder some of this weight, as we did with this grocery store, with our fast response and expertise. We can help by calling (301) 662-1747.

Comprehensive Water Damage Restoration a Must for Frederick Historic Structures

The city and county of Frederick reach out to residents and visitors many opportunities to experience the rich and robust history of our area. Museums, battlegrounds, and historical markers and buildings lend a lens to the past. If any of these venues suffer a water crisis, the loss affects a portal into the past and limits the lessons learned. Our team of expert water mitigation technicians pledges to restore these special properties “Like it never even happened.”

Old plumbing, severe weather, human error, and unfortunate decisions like pranks or vandalism can all cause water damage to Frederick landmarks. Fast, professional mitigation of water loss is an essential first step. We also offer full restoration services, permitting our commercial customers to streamline the process, relying on one experienced company to take a water loss from chaos to wholly rebuilt.

SERVPRO’s technicians are uniquely qualified to manage damage to local attractions. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is our go-to for employee training. The industry standards developed and taught by the IICRC ensure that our crews always deliver high-quality outcomes based on industry best practices.

Commercial water damage restoration begins with efficient water removal and extraction. SERVPRO invests in state-of-the-art commercial-grade equipment for fast results. We pump out standing water more than two inches deep using gas-powered, submersible units. Wanded water extractors allow us to reach tight corners and use a vacuum-like motion to pull significant amounts of moisture out of saturated building materials.

Our technicians use sophisticated water metering and thermal imaging equipment to locate caches of water that migrated behind, over, and under structural components. SERVPRO uses strategies such as flood cuts, drilled holes, and top-down extraction to release the trapped water. We remove lingering moisture from hardwood floors and building cavities with negative air pressure systems that suction the water out, even from several layers of building materials.

Rebuilding experts on SERVPRO crews address the controlled demolition done to access water and improve structural drying results. We install drywall, repair trim, hang new ceilings, and more to return the historic premises to preloss condition.

SERVPRO of Frederick County is a one-stop remediation and restoration contractor for commercial properties in our area. Contact us at (301) 662-1747 to turn back the pages on water damage.
