Commercial Retail Emergency Water Extraction - NW Fort Worth, TX | Commercial Water Damage Remediation - Saginaw, TX Retail Water Backup in Tarrant County, Texas

Excess water can impact people's lives in a variety of ways, whether you're dealing with a situation at your home or business.  Consider the situation of a flavored popcorn store in Tarrant County.  Something went awry in their building, and by morning, water had accumulated so that it was sitting above the bottom rail of their counter.  


The water from their location, spread into their neighbor and affected their business as well.  Regardless of the cause, the main thing that a retail business needs to do is to get dried out, quickly, so that they can conduct business normally.  It's one thing when you may not be able to use your own home for a few days when dealing with emergency water extraction, but a business has a broader impact.  They have a cost associated with not being able to use their facility, but then there's the lost revenue from not being able to conduct business as the normally would.   


Retail Shopping Impacted by Water Backup 


In the case of this popcorn store, the bulk of their products were off the floor already, and undamaged by the water.  Their biggest problem was to get their display cabinets dried out fast and thoroughly to avoid any permanent damage.  


As you can see in the picture, they used fans and propped up the center displays to allow the air to blow through and around them.  They were unable to operate for just one day, and were back to business as normal (or close to it) by the weekend.  


They had the expense of getting dried out, and then had to sort things out between their own insurance company and the building's owner.  Luckily, they could get the water extracted soon after they found it, and got dried out before any permanent damage was done to their displays or equipment.


This is exactly the type of situation that SERVPRO is geared for.  Whether the situation is limited to a 1000-square-foot retail store, or a 50,000-square-foot department store, we would be ready to assist.  We have substantial equipment at the ready at each of our locations, and then each franchisee has access to emergency help from the greater network of SERVPRO professionals.  We stand ready 24/7/365 for just about any emergency, and we'll make it "Like it never even happened. ®"
