Water Removal Services for Your St. Petersburg Church

Recovering your St. Petersburg church after a disaster can prove problematic when those available to you lack the equipment or resources to help in the time frame where it is most beneficial. With water loss incidents happening within your church, construction materials and the contents of the various rooms are at risk for saturation and moisture effects which could cause irreparable damage. These time-sensitive situations are why our emergency response team exists.

When your St. Petersburg church requires water removal services, it often follows some water loss incident which occurs within the building. From plumbing breaks to sprinkler system failures, high volumes of water can spread quickly throughout your property and begin saturating into materials almost immediately. Our SERVPRO professionals are available 24/7 to help you mitigate this situation through fast extraction work and the preservation of the things most precious to you in the building.

One of the things that often initially gets overlooked when it comes to water damage spreading throughout the church is the pews and altar. These wooden constructions are particularly susceptible to saturation when exposed to pooling water, and this saturation can cause warping and bloating of the submerged portions. With extraction work happening quickly, this saturation has less of an opportunity to take hold, and its effects get negated through the dehumidification and drying efforts to follow.

The same could be said for the flooring, as many sanctuaries get covered with wall-to-wall carpeting. Pooling water can penetrate and collect in the fibers of this carpeting, and seep into the padding and supports for the floor beneath it. Our weighted extraction equipment can force water out of the padding and carpet to get removed with a high-powered vacuum.

These might be specific examples of how water damages can get overcome in your church, but it can also display the level of care and appreciation that our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg franchise has for the churches and commercial properties of our communities. When disaster strikes, give our emergency response team a call 24/7 at (727) 522-0000.
