Are Plumbing Leaks Causing Water Damage to Your Riverhead Restaurant?
Plumbing Leaks in Wall Cavities of Your Riverhead Restaurant
Plumbing networks are in nearly every wall cavity surrounding the kitchen and prep areas of your Riverhead restaurant. As you are always looking to provide a thorough yet efficient cleaning approach to these areas, much of the storage and structural elements are stainless steel to complement the tile flooring. While all of these materials might be water-resistant, drywall, baseboard, and framing might be at risk when plumbing leaks occur inside of walls around your kitchen.
The trouble with breaches in your water lines inside of the walls is that you might not recognize water damage in your Riverhead restaurant until it has soaked through materials and come out to the main kitchen area or the dining space on the other side of this shared wall. Contending with these damaging conditions requires the fast response of professional restorers like our SERVPRO team, as there must be advanced techniques employed to reduce continued damage to exposed materials and to dry up this structural cavity as quickly as possible.
Shutting off the water supply to this damaged portion of the pipe is an excellent way to begin the recovery proression once you have been made aware of the problem. Working alongside reputable commercial contractors, we can help to prepare the area for controlled demolition and plumbing repair by marking the dryline where moisture damage stops on drywall. Once these steps have taken place, our SERVPRO team can focus on drying out the affected areas with our premier equipment. This approach includes our centrifugal and axial air movers, an array of extraction tools including light wands and sump pumps, and refrigerant dehumidifiers for efficient moisture removal in controlled temperatures.
Depending on which areas have seen the most water damage, we might employ positive pressure systems through drilled holes where baseboards used to be in either the dining area of your restaurant or in the kitchen side. These units force heated air through cavities in spaces where flood cuts were not necessary. We can attempt to limit the sight of these units for your customers, should we make it possible to continue food preparation during the restoration and recovery phases of your restaurant.
Water losses can be a considerable challenge, especially when you do not know they have happened. Give our SERVPRO of The North Fork to help however you need at (631) 591-3771.
