Why SERVPRO How is Water Removed From Your Covina Drywall? One of the first signs of a water leak is dimpling and peeling drywall.

Why SERVPRO Manages Water Removal in Covina Perfectly

When there is water spill in a property, it presents various challenges including stain transfer, microbial growth and deterioration in parts of the structure due to rot or other issues. Fixing the source and removing the intruding water are critical steps in restoring the property to its preloss condition. Remember, as long as there is excess moisture present, it is impossible to perform other essential restoration steps correctly. Covina property owners can deal with water loss incidents better by involving professional water restoration technicians like us.  

Expediting the water removal in Covina helps in many ways including limiting the chances of microbial growth. Most materials also deteriorate in different ways if they remain submerged in water for long. For example, wet drywall can lose its structural integrity, while natural wood warps or buckles from the extended water exposure. Carpets, on the other hand, lose up to 50% of their strength when soaked increasing chances of tears and other mechanical damage. Using high-speed pumps or truck-mounted extractors, our SERVPRO technicians can extract all standing water before it causes severe damage.  

Proper moisture detection is crucial for conclusive water removal. Although most of the water pools in areas that you can readily see with your naked eye, some might filter into hidden areas such as wall cavities. Our SERVPRO technicians prioritize detection of the water source and level of migration. We have state-of-the-art equipment such as thermal cameras that enable us to check hidden spaces without tearing them down first. Using moisture sensors, we can also measure the level of water migration on different porous materials.  

Thoroughly drying property helps eliminate the effects of a water spill "Like it never even happened." Our SERVPRO technicians understand various challenges that affect the drying stage and therefore come up with the best strategies to tackle them. Since drying involves evaporation, it is much slower when more water is involved. We, therefore, do thorough extraction before starting the drying process. Drying also requires a perfect balance of the evaporation rate and humidity extraction from the air. We do this by calculating the number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed for balanced drying.  

Removing standing water from your property with professional help is easy. Call SERVPRO of Azusa /Covina at (626) 387-4111 to assist you. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
