We Act Quickly in Gaithersburg When You Require Commercial Water Removal

Any amount of water damage in your commercial space can translate into significant hassles and expensive repairs if not addressed quickly. Waiting too long to have the water and moisture removed means the potential for mold growth that leads to health hazards for your staff and customers. Should the water loss include sewage, then the cleaning event is rated at the biohazard level to deal with potential pathogens and contaminants properly.

When you need commercial water removal in Gaithersburg, you must never rule out the idea that sewage may be a problem. Your janitorial crew does not have the powerful equipment or the right cleaning products to deal with such a situation, so you need to contact our team at SERVPRO. We provide you with industrial-grade solutions and professional equipment used by trained technicians.

Water Extraction

With a commercial water loss event, our technicians have protective gear that includes the use of respirators to ensure no airborne molecules get breathed in. If the bathrooms are impacted in your commercial space, we scope the bathrooms and use extraction pumps to pull out all solid waste and water quickly. A standard measure taken in such a situation is the application of anti-microbial solutions to the water to cut down on the potential hazards in the standing water.

Contaminated Materials

Water loss events often have damaged sheetrock as the water wicks up through the materials. Our SERVPRO technicians make flood cuts above the water line to remove and discard the contaminated pieces. This also allows for the airflow to get into the wall cavities to speed up drying. 

Drying Process

SERVPRO has tried and true methods to speed up the drying process after the extraction phase. We have a unique formula that allows us to determine the right number of air movers and dehumidifiers to place throughout your commercial space. To help capture air particles and to improve upon the air quality in the building, we also commonly run air scrubbers.


In a heavily contaminated water loss situation, we step up the amount of antimicrobial and anti-bacterial agents used to clean and disinfect. This not only ensures that potential hazards from bacteria are eliminated, but it keeps foul odors from developing.

The team at SERVPRO of Gaithersburg/Germantown is ready to help when you have commercial water removal needs. We can send a team out to make it “Like it never even happened,” when you call us at (301) 963-8474.
