Professional Extraction Equipment Lessens Loss to Water Damage in Largo Homes
Among insurance claims filed annually, water damage is the second most frequent after wind and hail damage to residential properties. The proper cleanup of water loss is vital to ensure mold is not an issue afterward.
When SERVPRO assists Largo homeowners with water damage cleanup, we pay special attention to this step of mitigation because the more time we spend pulling up moisture, the faster the drying phase of restoration goes. We have several types of equipment to choose from dependent on the scope and scale of the water removal needs, such as:
- Portable pumps for fast extraction, especially useful in small spaces
- Stand on wet vacs called Rovers that use the weight of the technician as part of the water expression process for thorough removal
- Weighted extraction wands to force water out of carpeting or upholstery
- Truck mounted pumps for fast, large-scale water extraction
Because of the propensity for water to migrate, we scope all parts of the room to locate it. For example, a supply line leak in a second-floor laundry room can result in water running behind baseboards, wicking into sheetrock and dripping into the floor joists and coming through the ceiling below. An event of this type requires that the flooring, ceiling, and wall cavities are thoroughly dried to inhibit the growth of mold in any of those areas.
Before drying, SERVPRO technicians set drying goals. These goals are unique to each job site and taken into consideration are the average humidity conditions in the home as well as ambient temperatures to ensure that there is no danger of harboring mold colonies after the water cleanup.
After drying, we hand-clean and disinfect affected surfaces and objects to leave the area without residual water odors. Our technicians hold certifications in mold remediation #MRSR1163 and we know how to create an inhospitable environment for mold growth, so it is not an issue the homeowner has to worry about from this water loss event.
