Do you need SERVPRO for water clean up?
Every water disaster is different, from the amount of water to the level of contamination of the water. This is why if your home has been hit by water damage due to a flood or severe storm it’s essential that you get the water cleaned up quickly to ensure your property stays intact and free from mold and other damages in the future.
The Big Toll of Flood Damage to Homeowners
Floods are serious problems for homeowners. They’re severe enough to cause $40 billion worth of damage worldwide every year. If nothing else, floods can be a health risk for you and your family. That’s why flood clean-up is essential. The process can take several months and can cause lots of damage if you’re not prepared.
Keeping Mold and Mildew from Sticking Around
Water flooding will almost certainly generate mold in well-ventilated areas of your property that aren’t cleaned quickly following a flood. These molds are formed at the corner regions of the room and even over the surfaces which are porous. As mold and mildew start developing quickly, it’s essential to act fast to prevent it from spreading and creating bigger issues.
SERVPRO’s Process for Water Remediation
After a thorough property assessment, the highly trained technicians at SERVPRO Wilson County begin the water removal process, using powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial strength, wet/dry vacuums. Removing most of the water helps reduce drying time and helps prevent secondary water damage and mold and bacterial growth. Our team also is adept at using these water removal equipment types on water damaged properties:
- Moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation.
- Infrared cameras may be used to find “hidden” water behind walls and ceilings.
- Submersible and gas-powered pumps are used for continuous pumping of high-level water.
- Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal.
