When Water Damage in Your Hyde Park Salon Causes Bad Hair Days

Fast Water Removal and Restoration in Hyde Park Hair Salon Keeps Business Buzzing

Water damage is severe enough when it happens in a home; it can be twice as bad when it occurs in a brick and mortar business that delivers services to customers. The faster the cleanup happens, the more quickly you can get back to pampering and serving your clientele.  

The need for quick commercial water removal in a Hyde Park hair salon happened due to the extreme icy cold in the entire upper Illinois-area resulting in an unexpected pipe burst. Although catching the water intrusion relatively fast, standing pools of water spread to two adjacent rooms. The salon arranged for plumbing repair through their carrier and contacted SERVPRO to start the water cleanup process.  

SERVPRO technicians removed the standing water using multiple portable extractors with squeegee attachments for use on the tile flooring. A thorough water extraction requires less drying time. Upon inspection, the salon flooring was found to be asphalt tile. This type of tile usually maintains a good bond with concrete and responds well to cleaning which makes the restoration process faster.  

The pipe burst had happened behind a single work station with a vanity and mirror. The wood vanity needed weep holes drilled in the back for maximum air circulation. Air movers quickly died the salon, and when the probes showed the flooring and walls at optimum levels of dryness and low moisture readings, our technicians plugged the weep holes and began the cleaning phase of remediation. Floors, objects, and surfaces affected by the water are hand-wiped with our professional antifungal and antibacterial solutions to leave them disinfected, deodorized and ready for customers.  

Commercial water removal needs to happen as fast as possible to stop secondary damage from occurring to your business. The emergency services provided by SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville are available 24/7. Call us at (312) 509-5000, and our certified technicians can be on site within four hours to return your business to normal.
