Commercial Water Damage Restoration
Experts In Commercial Water Damage Mitigation & Restoration Services
Water damage can come in different forms and for various reasons. Some of the most common causes of commercial water damage are weather-related floods, burst or leaking pipes, roof leaks, appliance ruptures, and fire-related incidents. Whatever the cause may be, one thing is true — the effects of water damage in your commercial property can have an immense impact on your business operations. If you can’t open for business, then you can’t assist your customers and earn revenue.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
+ When a commercial property damage event happens, should I call my insurance first?
Your insurance company prefers you call a commercial restoration company like Cotton GDS to begin water cleanup and fix your water damage as quickly as possible. If possible, turn off any water valves you can access.
Call a plumber to fix the leak, if applicable, but the faster our crews arrive, the more damage we can help prevent in your commercial property. You should still call your insurance company, but don't wait for an adjuster to arrive before beginning water damage mitigation. If you plan to file a claim, they’ll need an assessment of the damage and restoration estimate. Calling Cotton GDS speeds up the process.
+ How long is the water restoration process?
This depends on the severity and category of the disaster damages. If the area was supersaturated or if the water was contaminated, that could increase the time it takes to restore your property back to its pre-event state.
+ Can water damage cause mold to grow?
Absolutely. Water is one of the necessary ingredients needed for mold to grow. If you have water damage in your business facility, and you don’t extract the water and properly dry the affected area in time, you could have mold growth within 48 hours.
+ What happens after my business or property is dry?
After the damage is mitigated, repairs may be necessary. We are a full-service contractor and can make the necessary repairs for you, leaving your business or commercial property in excellent condition when we leave.
