Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Our Water Loss Process

10/24/2022 (Permalink)

When problems with plumbing causes excessive pooling it requires removal equipment that most homeowners do not own. Whether it's a slow leak or a full-scale burst pipe, the after-effects of crawlspaces, sub floors and carpet pads become saturated by water can cause lasting harm.

The Process of removing water:

First, we use pumps, before moving in with more precise wet/dry vacuums and extraction wands. Our technicians must pass an in depth training program before working in our franchises. Their training allows them to use advanced techniques to make sure moisture is removed and prevent secondary damage from happening. 

Floorboards can be difficult to dry, which is why we use flat lay drying techniques. A process by which a sheet is laid on the affected surface and air-circulation is applied. As the sheet inflates, water is drawn out and into the air. We have found this technique to be extremely useful in the removal of moisture from in between floorboards or gaps within your property's structure.

Sometimes carpets are pulled up, pads replaced, and sub floors inspected to ensure proper removal of moisture. Next, we can place rapid air-movers into the affected area. These circulate hot air, evaporating moisture. It is part of a two-step process that guards against the risk of mold or mildew buildup after a leak. The second step is to place humidifiers into the affected area and remove the evaporated moisture from the air.

At the conclusion of service, our technician can remove all equipment as well as any materials that need to be discarded. We then encourage a final walk through in the affected area to show you where work has been carried out, where items have been restored and what needs replacing. At SERVPRO of Breckinridge, Grayson, Meade & Hancock Counties we know replacing items can get expensive, so we work toward restoration rather than a replacement to keep costs as low as possible for our customers.
