A basement flood can cause lots of damage to a commercial building in Commerce City. Your clients will use their insurance coverage to pay for emergency restoration services. However, it is up to you to decide which cleanup company your clients use.
You should choose a restoration business with both corporate reach and local franchises that understand the challenges of a particular city. SERVPRO fits this description. In fact, it is a preferred vendor for most insurance agencies.
SERVPRO experts have the necessary experience to remove water from a flooded basement safely and efficiently. Here are the steps they follow:
1. Drain the Water
