When Water Damages Warehouses in El Centro

Green SERVPRO equipment No matter the scope of your water loss, SERVPRO can restore your property.

Precautions for Water Removal in El Centro Warehouses 

As the owner of a bustling El Centro warehouse, you handle the goods for your company in a steady stream of incoming and outgoing orders. As highly tuned as this procedure has become over the years of operation, disasters can still occur that limit the production of your facility and can potentially damage these stored wares. In addition to the threat standing water presents to stocked boxes and pallets, several other concerns exist regarding extraction. 

Water removal for your El Centro warehouse is a critical mitigation element when our SERVPRO team first arrives at your facility. However, extraction and other relative emergency services can create unexpected hazards. Anticipating these setbacks to the restoration process can help our team to return your building to the preloss condition efficiently. 

Structural Weaknesses 

The presence of excessive water in the offices and non-open-air areas of the warehouse can compromise the structural integrity of exposed materials. Absorption into ceiling and wall materials can lead to these surfaces becoming too heavy to and collapsing. Flooring other than the finished concrete throughout most of the facility can also be a point of concern for overexposure and weakening. 

Slips and Fall Hazards  

Though the extraction process is one of the primary focuses of the SERVPRO team responding to the water loss, finished concrete flooring and other smooth surfaces can make slipping and falling easy. Whether these are employees still attempting to work around the worsening water loss or our responding technicians, careful extraction and drying can limit the potential slip hazards. 


When material removal is necessary for effective extraction and evaporative drying techniques, hidden asbestos-containing products can get uncovered and disturbed with controlled demolition techniques. Given the severity of these concerns and any exposure to fibers circulating in the environment, our SERVPRO abatement team can remove these threats appropriately. 

Removing standing water from areas of your warehouse should happen as quickly as possible. Our SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City team can arrive with premier water removal tools, but also a working knowledge of the best solutions to address potential problems as they arise. Give us a call anytime at (760) 337-5858.
