Rapid Water Removal Mitigates Damage
SERVPRO' s Expertise Saves Homeowners Money with Fast Water Extraction
Water damage from weather, broken plumbing or improper drainage can be a crushing blow to a homeowner. At this time in summer, Texas weather brings the constant threat of thunderstorms. In many neighborhoods, families barely have the opportunity to dry out from the last storm before another one hits.
At SERVPRO, we understand how important water removal is in Dallas to get back into your home. Depending on the amount of water and how much of your home has been flooded, this process may take only a day or two. Under severe volumes of standing water, the process may take over a week for complete drying. Our team of technicians will work to make the process as painless as possible for you.
Our locally owned offices maintain a 24-hour response team specializing in flood water removal. Damage (regardless if it is rainwater or otherwise) will begin in less than a day if any standing water is not pumped out as quickly as possible. SERVPRO owns and keeps on site, an extensive inventory of pumps and water extractors designed for private homes. Each office also maintains its generators to support our teams and equipment. Having some of the best equipment in the removal business is useless if you can't use it when the city electrical grid may be knocked out.
After the water has been removed, our technicians use a series of blowers and exhaust fans to remove any remaining, excess moisture. To remove excess humidity and hopefully prevent the growth of mold, we also use specialized dehumidifiers when needed. Drywall and floor trim are particularly vulnerable to mold infestation if they are not dried out or removed quickly. Some of the same equipment we use for removal is also useful to restore carpets and carpet padding. In addition to the fans and blowers, our teams also maintain a specialized set of vacuums, mat wet vacs and heaters to extract water from carpets and wood flooring. In just a few minutes after getting soaked, dyes and inks begin to bleed from cloth and paper. It is usually too late for those goods to be salvaged, but our highly trained technicians can recover and restore furniture to prevent it from losing paint or varnish. If water is removed quickly enough, floor staining and carpet color can be saved as well.
