Commercial Concord Area Professional Buildings Can Benefit from SERVPRO to Prevent Water Loss in Basements Wet Basements in Concord Can Ruin Important Business Documents--Call SERVPRO for Drying and Restoration

Protecting Stored Records in Your Concord Clinic’s Basement

Since your clinic moved into a space just big enough for all of your equipment and necessary examination rooms in the Concord business district, you had to utilize all of the available space out of the immediate main floor for storage of records and documentation in hard copy form. As promising as the basement area of the building seemed to be for the boxes of records, the aging blockwork has provided perpetual dampness and moisture that could threaten these documents. Our professionals can help.

As simple as it might seem to deal with a wet basement in your Concord clinic, there are some severe consequences to perpetual dampness that extend far beyond the records that you are keeping there. Dampness can allow for the production of mold, and with the cardboard boxes of paper records and documents, it does not take long for the spores present in that environment to seat into these materials and damage them permanently. Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to protect these records and to resolve the wet basement issues.

From the time that our professionals arrive at your facility, we can get to work quickly on identifying the source of the moisture in the basement of the clinic. This process can help our team to determine what can get done to prevent further dampness, whether that is sealing up penetration points in the blockwork with hydraulic cement or installing permanent equipment like sump pumps beneath the concrete floor of the basement to divert water from leeching up through the concrete.

To protect your documents, our contents department can remove them to the safety of a nearby facility of ours until the wet basement has gotten resolved. Our SERVPRO professionals on-site can set up air movers and dehumidifiers to quickly remove the moisture from the affected areas and monitor our progress to ensure that our long-term solutions remain effective at eliminating the penetrating water. We may suggest installing a permanent dehumidifier to maintain a steady Relative Humidity.

As vital as your clinic is, many patients might become uneasy at their records becoming destroyed by mold colonization or water damages. Let our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord restoration technicians help you to preserve these vital documents and the structural integrity of the building. Call anytime that you need us at (978) 486-9868.
