We Have Leading Extraction Equipment To Release Trapped Water In Porous Building Materials Of Ridgefield Houses. 

Understanding the importance of water removal services after burst pipes and flooding in area homes can be essential in protecting exposed building materials. Carpeting is highly susceptible to standing water damage, making extraction urgent.

How Do Weighted Extractors Work? 

With all of the specialty equipment and tools available for water removal in Ridgefield homes, units like weighted extractors play a considerable role in moisture damage control. While many surface extraction devices like submersible pumps and wet vacuums must complete their actions first, weighted extractors can prevent subflooring and flooring materials from becoming completely ruined with intruding water.

As either heavy instruments capable of remote-controlled roving or stationary pads where technicians can use their weight for the process, these units press carpets against subflooring materials. By squeezing the fibrous top layer and padding against a solid backing material, moisture can be displaced and forced to the surface for extraction with an onboard HEPA vacuum.

Can Other Tools Help Remove Water from Flooring?

Several other extraction tools can also help with moisture removal and management in different types of flooring or varying sorts of carpeted floors. These include:

  • Drying Mats
  • Carpet Wands
  • Wet Vacuums
  • Truck-Mount Extractors

As challenging as water damage incidents can be, our SERVPRO of Danbury / Ridgefield team is ready to help 24/7 at (203) 791-0920.
