Is it harder to dry a commercial property?
There is usually no overnight staff working in a commercial property, so when a pipe breaks nobody knows that there is a problem until the morning of the next day. By that time multiple floors and many square feet are under water.
Once the water is turned off you should call a restoration company. Water will continue to wick up the walls and cause destruction in the building as it sits. SERVPRO of Carrollton technicians uses truck mounted extractors to remove the water during mitigation. Then we will add air movement along the wet walls and carpets to help the water evaporate more quickly from the building.
