How To Make Water Damage Remediation In Burley a Breeze with SERVPRO
Quick, Professional Water Removal For Burley Homes
The Snake River cresting and flooding Burley might sound like a disaster movie come to life, but most water intrusions come failed plumbing or a broken appliance. If it goes unnoticed long enough though, a split hose on a washing machine can spill hundreds of gallons on the floor or across walls and property, causing just as much damage.
That is why water removal from Burley homes requires a quick, professional response. At SERVPRO, our trained response teams use the latest equipment to clear each home of unwanted and damaging water as fast as possible without causing any further issues.
If there is standing water about ankle high or higher, team members start with an industrial-grade pump from our equipment inventory. The size used depends on the floor area of the home and how much water is present. For example, an inch or two of water spread across the laundry room, kitchen and living room requires a smaller pump than the one needed for a basement that flooded over an entire weekend or longer when the family is on vacation.
After removing this largest amount of the water in the home, SERVPRO technicians switch to smaller devices called extractors to pull water out of carpets and floors. They can adjust the vacuum speed to ensure a quick effort without accidentally separating the carpet layers, lifting linoleum off kitchen floors, or splintering and cracking wood floors.
Once they complete the extraction process, team members look for water trapped behind walls, or in the sub-floor of the home. In addition to a visual inspection, technicians also use a special meter to determine if the humidity levels are too high.
To remove water, team members carefully lift a floorboard or drill a hole into a wall behind the baseboard and insert a hose attached to a small extractor which quickly draws off the puddle or other standing water. For high humidity that can still rot wood or drywall, they use an air mover. This device forces warm air into the affected space, pushing out the damp air, so it evaporates naturally.
