Establishing a Staging Area for Water Loss in Durham Offices 

The efficiency of restoration work directly correlates to the preparedness and equipment available to professional restorers in Durham homes. After water loss incidents, office property managers have several immediate concerns to address, including the deterioration of documents, the damage to computers, and the saturation of desks and carpeting. How professional restorers set up their workspace can be critical in the speed of recovery. 

Even if you do not have clients and customers enter your office space often, improper management of water damage in a Durham business can affect your availability and service to your patrons. Staging areas can showcase the preparedness of our SERVPRO team but also help to increase productivity and efficiency – effectively reducing your final restoration costs. Understanding why this designed space exists can show you that we are working smarter to get your office dry and protected from secondary effects like mold growth. 

A staging area gets decided between the property management and our SERVPRO crew chief during the initial inspection and scope. It is a designated point where extraction, drying, and cleaning machines and products can remain at the ready for our technicians to use as necessary. Depending on the location of the water damage in the office, we can set up staging in a breakroom/kitchen or one of the bathrooms to have a water source nearby for mixing cleaning solutions. 

Taking fewer trips to the production vehicles outside of the office enables our employees to focus attention on content management. This management includes efforts to reduce the moisture and dampness damages to computers, furniture, and even dry out installed carpeting and padding before irreparable damage occurs. Between air movers and dehumidifiers, we can get this shared office space ready for your employees to return as promptly as possible. 

Professional restoration is more necessary than you might initially believe after water loss incidents, but our SERVPRO of Durham is here to help if you need it. Give us a call whenever disasters strike at (603) 868-3343, and we can show you how we make it “Like it never even happened.”
