How Soon Should Commercial Water Removal and Restoration Services Begin After a Pipe Break?
When there are plumbing issues that cause commercial water removal needs in a Chicagoland property, the answer is the cleanup efforts need to begin as quickly as possible for more than one reason.
Water Does Not Age Well
Unlike a fine wine, water gets worse and sometimes more dangerous with age. Even clean water from an interior pipe in a building can create larger issues if it sits for too long before it gets removed. SERVPRO techs routinely run into problems such as:
- Harmful bacteria in water allowed to degrade.
- Larger migration area requiring extraction and drying.
- More significant damage to building materials due to a delay in cleanup efforts.
