Understanding the Water Damage Mitigation Process for Effective Recover

6/8/2023 (Permalink)

Commercial Water Loss

Water damage is common and potentially devastating that can occur to a commercial property. Whether it is caused by burst pipes, plumbing leaks, or natural disasters, water loss incidents can disrupt business operations and cause significant property damage. In such situations, taking action quickly is important to minimize the impact and begin the restoration process.

Response & Assessment

When a commercial property has a run-in with water damage, it is important to respond promptly. Here at SERVPRO of Bridgewater, our team understands the urgency needed when a business is affected by water damage. We provide 24/7 emergency service in order to tackle the issue quickly. Once a technician arrives on-site, they will conduct a thorough assessment to determine the extent of the damages. This assessment includes identifying the source of the water, evaluating affected areas, and determining any safety hazards.

Water Extraction & Removal

After a technician has completed the assessment, the next step will be to begin removing water from the affected areas. A team of mitigation experts will utilize powerful water extraction to remove any standing water. The team will use specialized techniques and equipment such as a moisture meter to address hidden pockets of water within the walls, ceilings, and floors. It is essential to remove water from the affected areas to prevent further damage, which can cause structural deterioration and mold growth if left unmitigated.

Drying & Dehumidification

After the water has been extracted, the affected areas need to be dried properly to prevent secondary damage. We will use commercial-grade dehumidifiers, air movers, and other types of drying equipment in order to expedite the mitigation process. While the equipment is running, a technician will carry out moisture/material readings to determine when the affected areas can be confirmed as dry.

Mold Prevention & Sanitization

Water damage can create an environment conducive to mold growth, posing health risks and further property damage. To prevent the spread of mold, our team will spray antimicrobials and use sanitization methods to tackle any potential mold growth. These measures will help inhibit the growth of mold and bacteria, ensuring a clean and safe environment.


Commercial water loss can have a significant impact on a business and its operations, but with proper mitigation, the recovery process will help you get back on your feet. A timely response, effective water extraction, thorough drying, and proper restoration are essential steps in mitigating water damage. By calling SERVPRO of Bridgewater to handle your water loss, businesses can minimize downtime, prevent further damage, and restore the property to its normal operations.
