What is Involved in Professional Water Removal from Your Boulder Property?
SERVPRO Takes You Step By Step in The Boulder Water Removal Process
A water-logged home after a flood, a leak or a busted pipe can spell disaster for a homeowner. If the water is not removed promptly and efficiently, it can lead to permanent damage and can even cause secondary damage as well.
Thankfully, there is professional help for water removal from your Boulder property after a water damage incidence. The IICRC certified SERVPRO professionals could use multiple methods to remove the standing water as well as the residual moisture in no time. Here are some of the equipment that professionals use in the water removal process.
An extractor is used to remove the water from floors and upholstery after a water damage incident. Extractors come in various sizes and capacities. If only a small amount of water needs to be removed, portable extractors are used. On the other hand, if there is much water needs to be removed, bigger extractors that are truck-mounted are often used.
While extractors can handle the standing water, the dehumidifiers can get rid of the hidden moisture. A dehumidifier removes moisture from the air, which in turn, increases the rate of evaporation. The rate of drying is increased with dehumidifiers.
There are two types of dehumidifiers that SERVPRO professionals can use. The first type is called a refrigerant dehumidifier that works very similar to an air conditioner unit. It extracts the moisture from the air and makes it drier to speed up the evaporation process. The other type is called a desiccant dehumidifier that uses special chemicals called desiccants that absorb moisture from the air making it dry.
Air moving equipment
Air movers move the damp and moisture-laden air and replace it with drier air that is ready to pick up more moisture. These are high-efficiency fans that move the air close to the surface that needs to be dried. As the air flow across the surface increases, the rate of drying also increases. Air movers are strategically placed along with the dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process.
