Three Water Damage Repairs for Leaks in Staten Island Offices
What Water Damage Repair Is Expected?
Water damages are the most common threat office buildings can experience. Because of how structurally compromising moisture damage can be, repairs are often necessary to restore production and business.
Bulk Material and Debris Removal
Before much of the other water damage repair in your Staten Island office can occur, we must assess how compromised the structure has become. Controlled demolition is an early step to pave the way for the other repairs and services needed. Bulk material removal can include:
- Ceiling Tile – Drop ceilings are standard in office buildings and can rapidly be overwhelmed by leaks. Wet tiles are low-cost and easily replaced, so they are often discarded.
- Drywall – Wet drywall is a breeding ground for mold and microbial threats. When drying is not possible, we remove saturated drywall panels.
- Debris and Buildup – Loose debris and buildup on the flooring can be a hazard for those using the office still during the cleanup, so removal is a top priority.
Plumbing and Fixture Repairs
The plumbing and piping throughout the structure are compromised in some way if there are leaks and sprays causing water damage. Finding these damaged network portions is critical so our team can replace the ruined pipe. Often identifying plumbing damage is easy once the controlled demolition has occurred.
Replacing Removed Materials
One of the final steps for our repair specialists is replacing the missing components of the office building. For example, if we removed wet drywall, we would bring in new panels to replace these missing portions. Likewise, if our crew pulled up carpeting exposed to standing water, we could lay down new flooring materials to match what we removed or be more water-resistant for future issues.
