A Quick Response Is Required After A Pipe Bursts In Your Dallas Home
Rapid Water Removal After Burst Pipes In Your Dallas Home
A burst water pipe or faulty valve can result in significant quantities of water entering the home. A situation like this can result in up to 400 liters of water being spewed into the home every hour. If you are away from the property during the working day or returning from a holiday, you may find your home wholly flooded and require professional assistance to avoid weakening the structure.
Our local technicians are here to provide water removal in Dallas and the surrounding area. We respond quickly, and SERVPRO can arrive on site in as little as four hours of notification of loss. The time-frame for repairing a property with excess quantities of water is sensitive as the longer it is there, the more likely it is to weaken floors, ceilings, walls, and fittings.
In an average working day, your home could fill with up to 5,000 liters of clean water if a burst pipe is left unchecked. SERVPRO technicians can shut-off the water at the source, before working to remove standing water. We can remove the water from your home using gas-powered pumps that are fully submersible and effective in clearing away standing water above two inches. These pumps are deposited into an open sewer point, like a bathroom, and can remove a limitless amount of water in a short space of time.
Once the standing water level drops below two inches, pumping methods can become inefficient. At this juncture, SERVPRO can move in using powerful portable water extraction equipment that combines vacuum power with heating elements to efficiently remove water and dry your home. Water extraction units are up to 1,000 times more efficient than air-movers or dehumidifiers in removing large quantities of moisture.
Since most water extraction equipment uses heating elements to evaporate moisture, it is not uncommon for humidity levels to rise. If the damage is limited to a single area of the property, we can deploy physical barriers or negative air pressure to prevent high humidity levels spreading into unaffected areas. Alternatively, we can use desiccant dehumidifiers to help bring those humidity levels under control and prevent microbial growth from occurring.
