The Definitive Guide to Belleair Bluffs Storm Damage Remediation
Equipment to Dry Out Flooded Homes in Belleair Bluffs
While our initial mitigation process focuses must on extraction and content management for Belleair Bluffs homes after a flooding situation, other actions must begin shortly after that. The faster that drying steps can start, the more likely it becomes that our SERVPRO team can restore and protect exposed construction materials and contents in the house.
While contamination is a threat of natural flooding scenarios, there are many situations where structural breaches during a storm can allow for flood damage in Belleair Bluffs homes. While extraction must occur first with tools like our electric submersible pumps and extractor trucks to remove the standing water throughout damaged areas of the residence, drying out the materials afterward requires equally powerful equipment.
Air movers have become the centerpiece of our drying efforts for decades, and the science behind them changes very little from one year to the next. Their premise is simple in that they send high-velocity bursts of air into a moist environment and against saturated materials to begin an evaporative drying process. Centrifugal air movers can help with a direct saturated point in a material, but axials are useful for widespread flooding in the larger homes of the area.
Axial air movers are one of the staples of widespread drying efforts by our SERVPRO team, as these units can deliver lower pressure at high volumes, which can allow their output to affect more significant open areas. Axials have a higher cubic feet per minute (CFM) output than centrifugal options and consume less power in generating that higher CFM, which can also make them an ideal choice when running a generator is the only available power source in recovery.
