Removing Surface Water Fast in Washington Homes
Standing water presents a unique threat for Washington homes, specifically because many materials used in aging residences throughout the area are porous and easily damaged. Even hardwoods that often now reside under newer carpeted floors remain sensitive to absorption and subsequent damage if extraction does not happen quickly enough. We have multiple tools ideal for water removal, including:
- Wet vacuums
- Electric submersible pumps
- Self-priming trash pumps
- Carpet wands
- Weighted extractors
Thorough Drying Steps for Washington Area Homes
There is no mistaking the damage resulting from water penetrating beyond the surface of materials like drywall or flooring. The steps taken to promote evaporative drying often employ multiple tools and devices simultaneously. Our SERVPRO team can appreciate how mismanaged moisture can result in microbial threats, so consistent monitoring is vital to ensure that the placement and production of drying tools meet the overseeing technicians' expectations.
