In business, disasters happen. Most of us wish they wouldn’t happen to our business, but as the saying goes, ‘into every life a little rain must fall’. When that rain ends up in your offices or place of business, A+ is here to help. We provide professional commercial Water Damage Restoration Services and Emergency Water Damage Restoration throughout the Greater Toronto area.
Rapid Response is Essential!
If water is entering your business, don’t wait. Call us right away. We offer 24-hour emergency service. Evenings and weekends, night or day, we’ll be there to minimize the damage.
Responding to water emergencies as quickly as possible is essential in order to reduce the long-term damage, expense and inconvenience as much as possible. Even a delay of a few hours can mean the difference between an inconvenience and a disaster.
Facts About Water Damage
Water damage remediation services are expensive. Flooring, drywall, and insulation all have to be replaced, and in some cases even wooden studs.
Once all the water damage has been repaired, you’ll have to pay for a professional inspection to certify that your workplace is free of mold. You are shut down until that happens.
While mold can grow underwater, forming a mat on the surface that releases dangerous spores, humid environments are just as bad. The good news is that mold requires a certain minimum level of humidity to form. If the water is removed and humidity reduced below the critical level before mold can start, a great deal of trouble and expense can be avoided.
Severe water damage remediation can run into 6 figures. Even if you have insurance, your premiums are going to go up. Then there's the cost of renting another space until the cleanup is done. It can be a real nightmare.
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Preventing Further Damage
If water is still entering your workplace when we get there, we’ll do what we can to stop it. If that simply isn’t possible, we move straight on to pumping the water out as quickly as possible.
We use powerful vacuums capable of removing water faster than it’s entering in almost all cases.
Once we’ve removed the water, we then dry out the air. As the air dries, water that has saturated drywall, carpets and flooring is slowly drawn out. This process requires training to do it right. If the outside air is still very humid, the area to be de-humidified needs to be properly isolated, so humidity leaves, but can’t get back in.
The sooner your workplace is rid of the water and the de-humidifying process is started, the lower the cost of repairs will be, and the sooner you can get back to work.
Emergency Water Damage Restoration
The rain has been falling for days, or an extra-large snowfall is melting and the water is now inches deep on your office floor. Whether you have a ground-floor business, or it’s coming in through a leak in the roof, you need help now! Your office, and your business will be working at reduced capacity, or even completely shut down until the water is gone...
Not only does this situation affect your immediate bottom line, but removing the water as quickly as possible will reduce the damage, saving you money later as well. Potentially, a lot of money. Obviously water damaged areas in your office or business will need to be restored, but it gets much worse if the water is allowed to sit. If mold develops, not only will you and your employees not be able to work in the building until it’s removed, but you’ll need to hire a professional remediation company. And here in the Greater Toronto area, we already live in a humid environment where mold can develop even without water entry.
Water Damage Remediation Can Break You
Water damage remediation services are expensive. Flooring, drywall, and insulation all have to be replaced, and in some cases even the wooden studs. Once all the work is done, you’ll have to pay for a professional inspection to certify that your office or business is free of mold. Without that, you won’t be allowed to continue operating in that location...
Severe water damage remediation can run into 6 figures. Even if you have insurance, your premiums are going to go up. Then there’s the amount of productive time lost. It really can be a disaster, but removing the water as quickly as possible can greatly reduce the damage, and the impact on your bottom line.
