Covina SERVPRO Professionals Talk About Water Removal Equipment
Why Professional Water Removal Works Best in Covina Properties
Nearly every home experiences some form of water damage during its service life. Whether it is from an appliance failure, plumbing problem, or from storm damage, it is not an uncommon issue. FEMA estimates that water damage and the often-resulting mold cost the insurance industry just over $2.5 billion yearly.
When a Covina home needs water removal, it is best to have the task performed professionally. The reason is simple; most consumer-grade wet/dry vacuums and fans do not have the power to extract the water like the specialized equipment SERVPRO technicians use.
The access to a diverse selection of extraction equipment, and the extensive training each technician undergoes makes the difference for giving each job site they work on for restoration service, the best outcome from any water damage.
Why Specialized Equipment Matters
When there is a water loss within a home, the water migrates downward, the attraction to gravity is part of the reason why water causes so much damage. Water damage events that occur on upper levels often see water dripping through the ceiling below. This is why SERVPRO technicians have different types of extraction and drying equipment for varied kinds of surfaces.
For example, they use weighted extraction heads on carpet and padding to push out the maximum amount of water. This action assists homeowners in saving carpet saturated by clean water, so they no worry about the cost of installing an all-new carpet. Squeegees work well on tile and hardwood flooring, and for drying, the technicians rely on their air movers and different types of dehumidification equipment to bring down the moisture levels in the room.
Monitoring the Drying Process
The technicians determine the air moisture levels within the home before drying and set drying goals, which is an essential step in avoiding issues such as mold. Most drying goals are set below 50% humidity to inhibit mold growth, and they carefully monitor the process to completion.
