SERVPRO of Alhambra's Water Damage Process

8/1/2018 (Permalink)

There are many different ways that water can unexpectedly get inside your home or property. It is a regular occurrence in life that things break, especially when water pipes or certain appliances break or malfunction.

Once water gets inside a building, many different types of damage can occur. SERVPRO’s technicians in Alhambra have experience in dealing with moisture in several different scenarios. It is essential that all moisture gets removed within a 48-hour window so that mold growth does not occur.

When mitigating problems having to do with excessive water, our SERVPRO experts use many different methods and equipment. All of the equipment and methods used are IICRC certified and proven to work well in the restoration industry. We always use different equipment depending on the aspects and severity of the damage situation.

When we first arrive to a water restoration project, we start by testing moisture levels inside the building. We use state-of-the-art detection devices to identify where water has intruded into the structure.

Next, we use specialized extraction equipment to pull moisture out of materials and contents inside the home. The extraction equipment consists of an extractor with a high powered vacuum motor. A vacuum tube then runs to an extraction tool that gets used to pull out the water.

After water gets extracted from the building, we use carpet tools to disengage the carpet and separate seams so that we can pump air underneath it and “float” the carpet. We then use different tools to reinstall the carpet pad and seams after drying is complete. Next, we use drying equipment to return moisture levels to normal conditions.

Air moving equipment causes evaporation to speed up the drying process. Dehumidifiers get used to remove water vapor from the air. After drying gets completed, we use deodorization equipment to apply professional products and treat foul odors.
