Water
Mitigation

An intrusion of water into your business is a serious and traumatizing event. The actions you take are crucial in preventing further damage, protecting your business, your customers and lost revenue.  To do this, you must take some very important steps, which are listed below.   First, among these is calling Superior Facility Service Group.  You need a restoration company that will arrive immediately and is certified by the IICRC as water mitigation and restoration professionals.

Time is of the essence when dealing with standing water and ineffective restoration has many consequences, including mold, possible health effects, lost revenue, potential litigation suits all which as a bottom-line add up to additional expenses for you.

Many business owners do not realize the degree in which water can penetrate into structural cavities and leaving trapped pockets of water.  They attempt to remove the water with a wet vac and use a fan to dry, unfortunately later they find out how much damage the trapped water created.

Water damage restoration can be accomplished very quickly and the cost associated with it is relatively low, especially when compared to the cost of mold remediation if the dry out is not done properly.

Whether your loss is from a pipe burst, toilet overflow, sewage back-up, or a major flood, Superior Facility Service Group has the equipment, and certified skilled professionals to arrive on the scene fast to restore your life and peace of mind.  We use the latest technology to determine moisture, such as our thermal imaging camera and video borescopes, in addition to our moisture meters.  For flooded areas we have “Flood Pumpers”.  These powerful pieces of equipment can pump out 300 to 1500 gallons per minute!
