Water Damage Restoration for Business



In the aftermath of flooding, businesses face significant revenue losses due to limited operations and customer traffic. At Scout Mold Testing, we specialize in mitigating these losses through swift, skilled flood restoration services for a range of commercial properties including healthcare facilities, retail stores, educational institutions, and more. Our expertise ensures that no project is beyond our scope for us to handle, and we are dedicated to restoring both your property and business operations effectively.

Flood damage involves more than simple water intrusion, including issues such as mold growth from standing water, residual moisture, and compromised air quality. These conditions can hinder employee performance, posing health risks and could result in increased healthcare claims or even lawsuits due to unsafe working environments. Moreover, customers are unlikely to frequent a business with foul odors or health hazards, which could ultimately result in closing the business.

Commercial Water Damage Evaluation Process

Upon arrival at your property, our team employs advanced equipment and techniques, similar to those used in residential services, to identify and remediate water damage. This includes finding moisture, removing water, boosting air circulation, drying out spaces, and eliminating odors. We conduct thorough inspections to assess damage and locate the water source, taking necessary steps to stop its flow. Special care is taken to address hazardous water types, such as black water, ensuring the eradication of harmful microbes. Mold assessments and treatments are conducted as needed. Non-salvageable goods are disposed of, and heavy objects are moved during the cleanup process and returned to their original positions afterward. Our use of deodorizing and anti-microbial agents improves the air quality in your building, ensuring a safe, fresh environment for both employees and customers.

At Scout Mold Testing, we prioritize the rapid restoration of your commercial property to lessen health risks and financial impacts, ensuring your business can get back to normal operations as swiftly as possible.

Prioritize safety: Proceed carefully as floors may be slippery and wet. Watch out for obstacles and any visible electrical wiring. Act with utmost caution.
