Why SERVPRO Uses Different Water Removal Techniques when Restoring Your Daytona Beach Home

When your home in Daytona Beach ends up soaked after a tree topples down onto your roof, you need to not only get the tree taken care of and your roof repaired, but you also need to get the rain out of your home. SERVPRO can take care of all aspects that a horrific storm causes your property to experience. 

Keeping everything as efficient as possible is why SERVPRO mitigates homes in Daytona Beach using different water removal techniques. These mitigation methods also provide protection against many types of damage, including destruction from water or moisture and microbial infestations. Removing the water that entered your attic can also keep the ceilings of lower floors from becoming stained. 

As soon as our building services team finishes removing the offending tree, clearing out the debris, and making the initial repairs to the roof, we start removing water from the area. Simultaneously, other crew members are pulling water out of the walls. We can tell where water migrates by using our infrared imaging cameras. There is no guesswork, or wasted time, involved in this step. 

When water enters into the interiors of walls, floors, as well as the ceilings below, we must do more than extract the water by letting it drain away. We also must get the materials these structures are made of dry again. Water trapped in hidden areas like this can cause problems both here and wherever it migrates. Blowing heated air into these cavities only works if we also provide a place for the dampened air to exit. Because of this, we often vent the cavity so that our desiccant machine can treat the air soon after it exits.

Carpets that became saturated with rain require immediate attention for us to save them from developing more extensive damage. Instead of replacing them like we must do after a flood, clean water, such as rain, allows us to restore them through drying and cleaning. 

Depending on the pile, the backing type, and the padding under the affected carpet, our restoration team might choose to perform a technique called floating the carpet. This raises the carpet off the floor and allows the carpet, pad, and underlay to dry all at the same time. This is often used for thinner carpets. Other carpets might respond better to weighted extraction methods. We use non-snagging machines that easily press the water out and into a collection chamber.

SERVPRO's water removal specialists also treat the air to reduce the amount of water vapor that can fill your home after rain ends up coming in through a hole in the roof. From top to bottom, SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach uses water removal machinery and methods to dry your home and make things “Like it never even happened.” Call (386) 677-9993 for experts near your Holly Hill, Mound Grove, or National Gardens residence.
