Areas that Require Water Removal in Redding Homes
Standing water presents several levels of risk for Redding homes, but if addressed quickly enough, much of this water can stay at a manageable surface level. Our SERVPRO professionals have unique approaches to removing excess and preparing the property for the much-needed drying efforts to follow, depending on the material affected and the severity of these conditions. Understanding the ideal approach to get water levels down to a drying position can reduce wasted time in the restoration process.
Excess water removal in Redding homes typically happens against flooring materials. Between carpets and hardwood, there are different solutions for reducing standing water, which rely on attachments for wet vacuums or truck-mounted extraction pumps. Prioritizing water removal can reduce the migration of water effects and limit the overall loss of exposed contents, materials, and areas of your household.
Hardwood flooring can become a costly material to replace when surface water penetrates planks and begins swelling the edges of the wood along the joints. Several steps can remove the surface water, including the use of a squeegee extractor attachment for portable vacuums. While drying mats are still necessary to finalize removal, these tools can remove the majority of excess water on the floor.
Light wands are a vital tool that our SERVPRO team can use to gain control of oversaturated carpeted areas. These tools are helpful even when padding must get removed from beneath the main carpet layer. Light wands, also labeled carpet wands, follow direct weighted water extraction techniques.
There are also instances in which the HVAC system in your home must have water removed, as well. Excess in these ducts can lead to high moisture content, which promotes microbial growth, fungal presence, or further deterioration of nearby structural elements. With vacuum hosing, we can remove any standing water from both supplies and return ductwork.
Water removal is not as cut and dry as it might appear. Knowing the best approach for specific materials can minimize the time and cost of restoration for our customers. Let our SERVPRO of Danbury / Ridgefield team make water losses “Like it never even happened” by calling (203) 791-0920.
