How SERVPRO Removes Water From Homes in Silt
SERVPRO has Many Water Removal Techniques for Silt Homes
Water that enters your home from an appliance failure or plumbing break can be a little or a lot. An inch of water can do substantial primary and secondary water damage the longer it stands. Water that enters via plumbing or home appliance is considered clean water. As the clock ticks on standing water, it degrades quickly first designated gray and then black water which is regarded as contaminated and requires specialized efforts to remediate.
SERVPRO technicians can be on site with equipment within four hours for water removal from Silt homes. Our technicians are IICRC certified and hold certifications in numerous types of restorative sciences. Based on the unique situation in the house, different resources can be used for water extraction, drying and odor control to fit the individual case.
Truck mounted pumps are a very effective way to remove thousands of gallons of water from a home quickly. Combined with weighted extractors which push water out of carpet padding meaning often carpeting can be dried in place without the need for removal. When water seeps into building materials and furnishings, our technicians drill small weep holes to allow the wall cavity to drain and dry adequately. In many cases, furniture can be placed on blocks and dried in place with minimal disruption to the home.
Air movers require planning and are more complex than setting up powerful fans and letting them run. Our technicians survey the home to determine the best angles to direct moist air up and out for the fastest drying. SERVPRO uses state-of-the-art digital moisture detectors to confirm the home has reached optimum levels of dryness, so microbial populations are not an issue after the fact. After drying, surfaces are wiped down with antifungal cleaning solutions and odor control techniques are applied if needed.
Water removal from your home is never a DIY job and should be handled by professionals as fast as possible. SERVPRO of Garfield and Pitkin Counties has emergency services available to assist you 24/7 at (970) 618-1516.
