SERVPRO Has The Right Equipment To Clean Up Your Wrightsville Bike Shop After A Flood
SERVPRO - Reducing Commercial Flood Damage In Wrightsville Beach
Rental agencies are an important part of the tourism industry here in Wrightsville Beach. With every location just minutes away from the beach, getting there is sometimes just as fun. It’s why bicycle rentals are so popular and why the owners have to keep the doors open and every bike available to rent.
For a Wrightsville Beach bike shop, commercial flood damage centers around getting the inventory dry and clean for customers. SERVPRO teams can often respond within an hour or two and begin setting up the equipment we need to eliminate the effects of a flood.
Where possible, we start by lifting every bike out of the water while setting up a pump to remove the water. After hanging them up or at least putting the bikes on blocks or pallets, specialists spray every surface with an anti-bacterial agent. Since outside flooding contains soil and other contaminants, this is a necessary part of ameliorating the effects and making sure everything is safe for customers.
SERVPRO team members clean and dry each bike next. To prevent rust, they install a combination of fans to increase air circulation and dehumidifiers to draw moisture off the surfaces and out of the surrounding air. If needed in larger areas, they can also install air movers to force warm, dry air across the bicycles to speed up drying.
We use these same devices to help dry the structure as well. In concrete or sheet metal buildings, flood water does not affect most of them, but it is still necessary to reduce the humidity to provide a more comfortable environment for customers and employees.
No matter if you operate on Harbor Island or Middle Sound, SERVPRO of New Hanover is here to help reopen doors and serve customers. If you are still dealing with the effects of the last flood, contact us at (910) 762-8180 today to finish getting your shop back on its feet.
