Multiple restoration devices are used in water mitigation for Ridgefield properties.

With how critical mitigation like water removal services becomes for damaged area homes and businesses, our SERVPRO professionals arrive with various evaporative drying and extraction tools to protect a property and its contents. From portable devices like wet vacuums used for smaller pools of water to truck-mounted extractors with wands, we have the equipment to handle any size disaster.

Removing Water from Low Porosity Surfaces

Hardwood floors with a finish, concrete, and tile are examples of surfaces where water removal in Ridgefield homes is less complicated. Without the ability of the exposed material to readily absorb the standing water, it is much more likely that this surface water concern can be cleared without underlying subflooring damage. Some of the tools used for this include:

  • Squeegee wands
  • Light wands
  • Truck extractors
  • Wet vacuums

Eliminating Water Trapped in Carpets and Padding

Carpeted floors can be challenging to dry and clean after water damage events like burst pipes or ceiling leaks. When moisture becomes trapped in the surface and padding layers, weighted extractors are an option that prevents pulling up the carpet and the expense of re-installation. It is not always feasible to attempt to salvage the soaked padding; we determine this on a case by case basis. Whatever is best for our customer.

Removing pooling water is a priority for restoration technicians entering your home after water damage. Our SERVPRO of Danbury / Ridgefield team has many strategies that begin with your phone call to (203) 791-0920.
