This area of Tennessee is no stranger to intense storms and tornadoes, and commercial flood damage has the potential to affect the livelihood of a business. It is important to begin restoration efforts as soon as possible after water damage to avoid secondary losses.

Commercial flood damage to a Knoxville hotel from a storm causing a roof leak over several rooms can be devastating if not adequately cleaned. The hospitality industry is competitive and thrives on word of mouth referrals and social media and Yelp reviews. Patrons expect clean rooms and no foul odors, which poorly mitigated water damage leaves behind.

When SERVPRO technicians arrive on-site to remediate water damage, they immediately tarp over any areas where further entry of rainwater can occur. They use state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment to determine where accumulations of moisture are within the structure and contents.

Our technicians are trained and certified to handle controlled demolitions to safely remove drywall, carpeting and other structural components too damaged to restore through our proprietary methods. We pack out Items that show potential for restoration through cleaning at our location. Restoring rather than replacing is our goal for businesses affected by water loss.

Before any rebuilding occurs, the structure must be dry. Attention to this detail negates the potential for mold growth and foul odors. Technicians extract as much water as possible and spend extra time on this step. Walls can retain moisture, flood cuts on the lower area of the drywall above where moisture has wicked, allow for airflow behind standing walls.

After drying and disinfection, our technicians offer suggestions for rebuilding through our Building Services. In this way, we can provide the hotel owner seamless support from the beginning to end of the restoration process so they can reopen as quickly as possible and get back to hosting guests.

SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville helps businesses overcome commercial flood damage with fast action and application of our equipment and techniques. We are available to come to your property 24/7 by calling (865) 862-8907 and make your water loss, "Like it never even happened."
