Water damage in office space When water damage affects your commercial building, SERVPRO techs are ready to help at a moment's notice. Call now.

While demolition is avoided when possible, our SERVPRO team can help with the repairs Wilmington properties need. 

The necessary actions to restore and recover a damaged shop or restaurant after a water loss is not the same from one site to the next. Mitigation is not always effective enough to entirely prevent needs like tear-out and repairs. With a general contractor license, we will provide build-back needs as well as mitigation strategies for your business.

Extraction and Drying Measures 

Before water damage repair in Wilmington shops can begin, extraction and drying must get underway. Preventing absorption and subsequent material deterioration is critical in the mitigation process. We arrive with several tools to help manage surface water and dry, exposed elements when possible. Standing water concerns can especially impact flooring.

Controlled Demolition and Assessment

When professionals determine that flooring materials are too severely damaged to preserve, the solution is controlled demolition. Removing affected planks and the carpet layer of various flooring styles provides access to underlying materials in layers beneath that might also require drying and restoration treatment. Fast demolition can protect:

  • Underlayment
  • Padding
  • Subflooring

Reinstalling Flooring Materials in the Building

With the underlying materials exposed or discarded if substantial damages occur, our professionals can call upon our general contractor license to provide construction services. We carefully match newly installed pieces to undisturbed portions of the floor for a seamless look “Like it never even happened.”

Because flooring can be so heavily damaged by pooling water, repairs and reconstruction are sometimes inevitable. Our SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere team can help with fast mitigation and restoration services to clean and dry exposed structural elements as quickly as possible. You can reach our team 24/7 by calling (302) 992-0104.
