The Worst Part of Commercial Flood Damage in Grand Junction Biz Is Not the Water

8/30/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Grand Junction's office sign. SERVPRO knows it's crucial to keep your business up and running in Grand Junction.

We can stop the water loss issues as soon as they start in Grand Junction.

We know when flood damage hits a commercial property, the situation is stressful on many levels. The loss of revenue for the time the business is closed for cleanup and restoration as well as any damaged stock counted as a water loss begins to add up for property owners.

SERVPRO helped a local real estate office in Grand Junction with commercial flood damage in over half their facility with a strong water odor which was unusual when we arrive on-site so soon after a water loss occurs. Our technicians inspected the damaged area and found the core of the issue was due to repair work done on the parking lot in front of the building directing rainwater towards the building rather than away from it.

While the property owner made arrangements for an immediate solution with the contractor working on the parking lot. To avoid further damage SERVPRO:

  • Set up absorbent barriers 
  • Sealed off the entry with a heavy tarp to stop any additional water from entering the premises

Our technicians removed the rubber backed slip-resistant carpeting and runners for drying and disinfection outside the work area. Water extraction went quickly as the property owner began cleanup efforts so soon after the initial water loss event. Upon scoping the property, we found very little water migration into sheetrock or within wall cavities, which did not explain the smell. 

When we work on a commercial property, we try to schedule as little downtime as possible for the business during restoration. In this case, rather than packing out the affected offices, we raised the desks on blocks and dried them in place. Once dry, there was still a noticeable, musty odor left behind. 

The property owner commented before the floods the conference room had a pungent odor, and both employees and clients commented on it. They had been unable to locate the source, and we used our thermal imaging to scope the walls and floor in the area unrelated to the initial water loss event. 

We were able to pinpoint the smell to a damaged exterior wall allowing water in over an extended period and showed the property owner the repairs that the area would require and gave him a written report covering restoration services completed and repairs needed to return the property to its preloss condition. 

SERVPRO of Grand Junction is available when you need us 24/7 to clean up commercial flood damage. Call us at (970) 241-8181, and our emergency response team arrives within an hour because We're Faster to Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO Says Safety First after a Grand Junction Hotel or Commercial Building Fire

Suppressant Cleanup after Fire Damage in a Grand Junction Hotel

Cleaning up after a fire loss incident in your Grand Junction hotel might not seem that problematic with full maintenance and custodial division crews, and with how quickly the fire itself was extinguished with suppression equipment nearby. The trouble you face now is cleaning up after the fire extinguisher, and the residue that this unit can leave on surfaces, contents, and other elements within the affected area. Even after you have achieved this, there are likely lingering fire effects that must still get addressed before your hotel can officially return to preloss condition.

As the management of a hotel in Grand Junction with fire damages, there are several necessary preventative and proactive actions that you can take to protect your property. Even shortly after the extinguishment of a fire, here are some essential time and money-saving steps that you should take:

•    Get Eyes on the Damage – Once extinguishment occurs, make sure that both hotel management and your cleaning crew have inspected the affected areas and determined the likelihood of restoration and recovery without professional assistance like our SERVPRO team.


•    Slowing the Spread – With hotels, multiple units and areas are always at risk when disaster strikes anywhere. If you cannot adequately prevent effects like odors, smoke, and soot from reaching your guests, you need to reach out to a professional service that can.


•    Limit Traffic – Even highly used areas that suffer fire damages can get bypassed under the right conditions, and you do not need guests seeing the compromised areas of your facility or spreading damaging effects to other floors and areas of the hotel.


•    Know Your Limitations – Even with anexperienced custodial staff, you might remain ill-prepared to contend with suppression residue and other fire effects. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly to emergencies.

Consider possible negative reviews and feedback on social media platforms. By immediately hiring a reputable, professionally staffed team like SERVPRO, you immediately confirm to your guests that they come first.

Fire loss incidents pose a substantial risk to guests, employees, and the hotel’s reputation without the appropriate preventative actions taken quickly. If you feel the situation is out of your control, you can lean on the experience of our SERVPRO of Grand Junction restoration specialists. You can reach us anytime by calling (970) 241-8181.
