A broken appliance, burst pipe or flooding after a storm can all lead to severe damage for your business or other commercial property. There’s no denying the destructive power of water and when it hampers your ability to do business, it can end up being very costly.

That’s why when it comes to handling commercial water damage Durango needs a name it can trust to get the job done right.

For more than 50 years, the first name in commercial water damage restoration in the Durango area has been SERVPRO. We combine the personal touch of a local franchise with the trusted backing of a national company that has the specific training necessary to do the job right.

Durango is such a beautiful place, combining a rich history with a stunning natural backdrop, so it’s no surprise that we have so many visitors every year. What began as a mining town has grown into a mecca for gourmet dining, world class skiing and fishing and plenty of unique shopping.

The railroad has always been at the heart of this community and it still is, with the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway providing a one of a kind tourist attraction.

There is plenty to peak your attention in both winter and summer, which makes this a perfect area for businesses, but it isn’t without potential hazards. At SERVPRO we understand the potential threat of water damage because we’re a local business ourselves.

Which is why we stand ready to respond 24/7 to handle any kind of water damage before it can sink your business.

Restoration Service Designed Specifically For Commercial Buildings

Any water damage can be devastating, but it can be particularly harmful when it strikes a large commercial property. While water presents the same general threat to businesses that it does to homes, commercial buildings tend to be much bigger and more complex and that necessitates a different approach.

To properly handle commercial water damage Durango needs a company it can rely on

At SERVPRO, we understand that time is money when it comes to your business, which is why we’re prepared to respond faster to any disaster. We also have the expert training and heavy duty equipment necessary to tackle any job, big or small. 

A Comprehensive Process You Can Trust

With years of experience behind us, SERVPRO has developed a unique approach that is designed to treat every emergency quickly and thoroughly and guarantees that your property will look “Like it never even happened”.  To reach that end, we employ a carefully structured process for handling each case of commercial water damage:

  1. Initial Contact – You can’t afford to be out of business, so our operators are ready to respond 24/7 and prepared to ask all of the right questions to help determine exactly what we need to do and get the cleanup and restoration started right away.
  2. Inspection and Water Damage Assessment – Within four hours of your call we’ll have a technician onsite to perform a thorough inspection of your property and determine the full extent of the damage. We’ll start by identifying the source of the problem and stopping it in its tracks and then we’ll move any furniture or other items to prevent further damage including staining and rust.
  3. Removal/Extraction – Once the damaged area has been cleared, we can then begin removing all standing water using submersible pumps and industrial grade wet/dry vacuums. Moisture detectors, hygrometers and other equipment can be used to measure moisture levels on surfaces and in the air. We’ll even use infrared cameras to detect any “hidden” water behind walls or in ceilings so that every bit of moisture can be removed.
  4. Drying/Dehumidification – With the water removed we can then begin the process of thoroughly drying the entire area. Using industrial grade air movers and dehumidifiers we can ensure that all moisture is completely removed from the affected area in order to avoid warping of floors, walls and furniture. We’ll carefully monitor our progress with moisture meters until we’re satisfied that the humidity and moisture levels have returned to a safe level.
  5. Cleaning/Sanitizing – Removing standing water and drying is only part of the restoration process. Unfortunately, water can often leave behind a dirty mess, so we’ll clean the entire area paying particular attention to any furniture, upholstery, clothing or restorable belongings that may have been damaged. At the same time we’ll use air scrubbers and fogging equipment to help remove any odors and apply antimicrobial, antibacterial and disinfectant treatments to sanitize all surfaces. If there are any items that you or your insurance adjusters deem to be unsalvageable, we’ll help you to get rid of them safely.
  6. Restoration – Once everything is clean and dried, there may be some repair and reconstruction necessary to complete the restoration. This may include drywall removal and installation, hardwood or tile floor repair, painting and carpet replacement.
