In the restaurant world, every day is different. There are daily drink and food deliveries, guest reservations, menu planning, advertising, and office work that need to be done. This business keeps everyone on their toes, even when things go wrong.
It would help to be prepared when something unexpected, like water leaks, occurs. Mishaps can quickly happen in your restaurant. SERVPRO is ready to mitigate the water damage to your Helena restaurant and help you return to business immediately. The following are tips (no pun intended) for handling restaurant water damage:
- Post directions to inform your staff how to handle water damage.
- Conduct inspections regularly to check for possible trouble spots.
- Find a professional firm like SERVPRO to work with when the water damage incident is too significant for you to handle alone.
- Discard non-packaged food that is exposed to water.
- Discard canned items that have swelling, seams, or dents.
Water can quickly get deep into porous materials like drywall and wood. It can threaten the building’s structural integrity if it absorbs too deeply. Fast action is critical because it helps keep drywall, insulation, and other materials from getting damaged beyond repair.
Standing water and moisture also create an ideal environment for mold growth and bacterial infestation. Our SERVPRO team can use water extraction equipment that provides good water removal. Water extraction is a crucial step in eliminating moisture from a structure. We seek to remove as much excess water as possible from a structure with extraction equipment.
Cleanup can be a daunting task. When tackling cleanup in a restaurant, it is necessary to clean walls, floors, ceilings and food preparation areas, and food contact surfaces. This cleaning includes pots, pans, countertops, ice machines, and refrigeration units. To clean and disinfect these surfaces, our SERVPRO team can wash them with EPA-approved detergents and then rinse them. We can also use commercial disinfectants with effectiveness against microbes or create chlorine bleach solutions to disinfect the affected areas.
