How Water Removal can Clean Up and Protect a Home
Contacting Certified Technicians After a Water Damage Event in Your Home can Prevent Secondary Damages from Setting in
When an accident occurs inside a home, the confined environment often works against a homeowner. Water spilled on the floor, in any amount, can quickly evaporate, making the saturated area seem drier than it really is while at the same time significantly increasing the humidity in the air.
Homes might require water removal services for several reasons, from the appliance's multiple water lines to tubs and sinks to weather-related issues. While removing as much water as possible before SERVPRO technicians arrive is always recommended, waiting to call for professional assistance only allows damage to worsen.
Prompt attention to the immediate area can curtail the amount of damage sustained, but professional mitigation of the situation also protects your home in other locations. The additional moisture in the air from evaporated water rarely remains suspended permanently, however, and condensation on belongings or absorption of this moisture by porous items within your home can allow other, more costly problems to develop.
Once humidity has penetrated into an area, for example, behind the seams on wallpaper, that moisture becomes increasingly complicated and time intensive to extract. Water removal can prevent damage in the first place, and we use dehumidification and desiccant equipment for this purpose throughout affected homes. Our highly trained and experienced technicians received certificates from the IICRC in Water Damage Restoration (WRT), ensuring that your home receives the quality services it needs and deserves. Our goal is to restore damaged homes thoroughly, so everything is once again “Like it never even happened.”
To quickly dry out your home's saturated floors, our use of water removal equipment might include large pump trucks when standing water is present. Large air blowers and small heated pads increase the rate of evaporation. Handheld suctioning devices are useful for eliminating smaller pockets of water present. Dehumidifiers and air scrubbers remove moisture from the indoor environment before it has a chance to cause further damage.
Whenever walls and vertical structures, such as long drapes or decorative columns, are also saturated with water that has wicked upwards along their lengths, our air blowers can be directed specifically for each one. This process reduces the probability of water stains and color bleeding. When the air outside is less humid than the indoor environment, we allow windows to remain open, speeding up the process even more.
