Even a laundromat in the Reading area can only handle so much water in the wrong places. If left unattended, even a small amount of water can cause thousands of dollars in damage.

It’s a Laundromat. Is It Necessary to Get Rid of the Water?

For commercial water restoration in a Reading laundromat, drying and repairing everything that’s out-of-sight is what keeps the facility ready for customers. SERVPRO restoration teams can perform every task needed from laying new linoleum to replacing a suspended ceiling.

Isn’t it Impossible to Completely Dry Out My Business?

Yes, but that is not what we do. If an environment is too dry, it can cause wall framing and other wood supports to split and crack. Too little moisture can also cause some glues to fail when it comes to carpeting and linoleum. Our technicians make certain the interior moisture, or humidity is in the correct range to reduce water damage and still provide a comfortable environment for customers. To do that, we use the following devices:

  • Axial Fans to immediately begin pulling damp air out of the building.
  • Extraction Wands to draw moisture out of wall spaces. Operators also use a heating element option to help prevent the glue from absorbing too much moisture, which causes carpet and linoleum to lift and form air bubbles.
  • Air Movers to force warm air into every space, carefully drying out each one without further damage.
  • Moisture Meters to ensure every affected point in the laundromat is in the correct range of humidity once technicians finish.

Water Can Cause Odor and Mold Problems; Can Your Technicians Stop Those Too?

Yes. SERVPRO uses a series of anti-bacterial cleaning agents that neutralize odor particles and also destroy mold spores. 

No matter how much or how little water has entered your building, call SERVPRO of Reading at (610) 779-8189 today to restore and reopen it for customers. We are here for you to protect your equipment from water damage.
