Water damage is a serious issue that can harm your livelihood. Whether your building was damaged by a flood, a burst water pipe, or a backed up sewer, one thing is certain. You will need to act fast to prevent the damage from getting any worse. If you feel that your commercial property may soon be at risk from water damage, you should contact SERVPRO of Belle Meade West Nashville immediately.
Damage from water can occur in many different forms. Even after all of the water has been pumped out of your restaurant, you may still be at risk. For example, your building may have sustained structural damage that requires an expert to detect. Alternatively, the increased humidity and standing water caused by water damage are the perfect environments for mold growth.
Another important factor to consider is the possible presence of black mold and other harmful forms of bacterial growth. Black mold can hide in tiny pools of stagnant water that are hidden deep within the nooks and crannies of your building. If left unchecked, it can break out into a serious infestation in as little as 24-48 hours.
