Commercial Ceiling Water Damage Help
Water damage to the ceiling is a problem you don’t want to ignore. Signs of water damage to your ceiling include:
- Slightly discolored spots — usually copper, yellow, or brown
- Peeling, cracking, or bubbling wall surfaces
- Discolored growths
- Odors indicative of mold or mildew
- Stains on ceiling
- Sagging ceiling
When water comes from the ceiling, sometimes drywall gets loose and falls from the ceiling. Other times water can get into light fixtures and cause a short creating an electrical hazard. After the area is deemed safe for our workers and yours, we begin the extraction process. We try our best to complete our work in a way that keeps your company functioning as best as possible. We will work around office desks and work areas so that your team can keep busy while we work.
After we use our advanced extraction system to vacuum up all the water we can, we start the structural drying process. During the structural drying stage, we attempt to speed up the natural evaporation process so that moisture dries out within 48 hours. If building materials inside your office complex stay wet for longer than two days, it is possible that mold will develop.
We always use industrially advanced moisture detection equipment to test progress and make sure everything is dry before we leave the job site. After our drying equipment has been set up for a couple of days, we make sure that moisture levels have returned to normal conditions before officially finishing the job.
