Quick Water Removal Helps Save Homewood Property  

Water loss can happen within minutes, depending on how much water a source releases. Removal and restoration of the property to its preloss state, on the other hand, takes time and effort. After receiving the report of a water loss situation in Homewood, SERVPRO moved fast to handle removal minimizing the losses and restoring the home to its normal habitable state.

Fast water removal from affected Homewood properties mostly depends on the equipment used. Our SERVPRO team understands this, having handled water loss incidents in many properties before. We use different sets of equipment to accomplish the intended goal. Equipment such as truck-mounted pumps, high-pressure pumps, and submersible pumps help us remove water fast under different circumstances. For example, instead of using a long hose from the pump to the water source, which can compromise the suction lift, a submersible pump is better.

Apart from the standing water, some also soaked into carpets, upholstery, and other porous materials. Such moisture tends to extend the removal process, especially if evaporation is the chosen method of removal.  Our SERVPRO technicians reduce the timeframe by reducing the amount of moisture to be evaporated. One technique to accomplish this is by the use of weighted extraction tools that squeeze water out of the material before suction lifts it. We have both stationary and self-propelled deep extraction tools. Extraction is 1200 times faster than evaporation.

A walk through the property after the restoration process would hardly reveal where the water reached because we dried all traces of excess moisture. Air movement is crucial during the moisture control stages. Mostly our SERVPRO technicians use centrifugal air movers to provide the necessary air movement because they produce the highest static pressure for a certain air volume. They also have up to three-speed levels giving us better control. The low profile variety of these air movers is especially helpful for processes such as floating carpets for in-place drying.

Speed matters when dealing with water loss. Call SERVPRO of Matteson-Homewood at (708) 747-9925 to help. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
