SERVPRO Has a Large Inventory of Water Removal Devices for Belleair Beach Water Losses
Water Cleanup In Belleair Beach Can Involve Using Stationary Tools
If you ever have an appliance malfunction inside your Belleair Beach home, the machine could spill several gallons of liquid H2O into your residence in a short time. The first step of water cleanup after you have an appliance break is to extract as much moisture as possible while it is still a liquid. Once your building materials and contents start to get saturated, and the humidity rises inside your house or condo, the moisture removal process gets more difficult.
During water cleanup in Belleair Beach, extraction can remove the majority of the liquid H2O if it takes place promptly. When conducting the initial extraction phase, our SERVPRO technicians can use a variety of equipment. For the power to suck up the moisture, we can implement either a heavy-duty truck-mounted extractor (rarely needed for a small spill from an appliance) or a portable unit. We can then attach several different tools to the extractor to get used on the various surfaces inside your home.
For example, when extracting from hard-surfaced floors, our SERVPRO crew can use a handheld extraction wand to soak up excessive moisture. Thick carpets, though, can require the use of specialized extraction tools. One type of tool that is often used during the extraction of high-fiber carpets is a stationary tool.
Stationary tools extract moisture from thick carpet and padding by using the weight of the operator. The SERVPRO technician stands upon the unit, and the carpeting gets compressed so that more moisture can get pulled up by the extractor's vacuum system. These units are available in different sizes. Smaller devices can be used in areas of your house that contain narrow strips of carpeting. The larger stationary extraction tools can pull water from a section of carpet up to 200 square inches in size.
The stationary tools can get used to extract wet carpet one section at a time. When using this type of extraction tool, the operator stands on the unit for ten to fifteen seconds at a time. The more time each section gets, the more liquid can get vacuumed up into the extraction waste tank. Then for room size areas, we can ride a Rover, like a lawnmower, only an extractor.
