Commercial Doctors Office Flood The waiting area in the doctors office that was flooded.

When it comes to a business, getting you back up and running is top priority.  This doctors office had a flood from the bathroom that made its way out to the waiting area and the examine rooms, that were covered in carpet.  SERVPRO of Spring Valley was able to bring in all the proper equipment to ensure that all the affected areas are dried down properly.  This includes lifting the carpet and padding to determine if the carpet and padding will be eligible for restoration verses replacement. Using air movers and blowers is an affective way to dry down carpet and similar surfaces.  In this case the carpet and padding was able to be restored and it saved the office from having to spend the cost of replacement.
