What’s Really Happening With Water Damage Remediation in Dallas
Tailoring Water Removal to the Unique Situation of Each Dallas Resident
Water extraction techniques vary depending on the scale of the task at hand. The individual area technicians are working on restoring also influences the method. Most people are familiar with traditional extraction methods using submersible gas pumps or truck-mounted storage tanks fitted with specialist wands. However, these are not the only options available to a restorer or homeowner. Sometimes pumping and extractors may be inefficient or otherwise not suitable to the task at hand. In these circumstances, homeowners can rely on us to mobilize modern drying methods to get the job done.
Many factors can influence our approach when it comes to water removal in Dallas. Your home, furnishings, and contents are unlike any other, so it stands to reason that any restoration approach needs tailoring to the specific demands of each situation. The waterlogged living room, for example, may have lots of heavy furniture as well as fittings, which can make the traditional method unsuitable. These rules apply to any area of your home, which is why SERVPRO technicians inspect a property thoroughly before deciding on a plan.
A traditional method of drying may be to remove carpeting from floors so that we can gain direct access to the waterlogged area underneath. However, detaching carpeting may be more time-consuming than leaving it in place. In-place drying involves moving furniture in its original position and using extractors to dry the outer areas first- which can stop water migration. We can then use weighted extractors to exert a downward force onto a wet carpet and squeeze the moisture out.
Consider a flooded kitchen or bathroom area. You may find that flooring like vinyl, tiling, or woods are expensive and time-consuming to remove and replace. In these situations, SERVPRO technicians can deploy drying mats. Drying mats cover a large surface area and are fitted with medical grade tubing. Attached to a central motor that generates negative air pressure, hundreds of these tubes work together to draw moisture out from solid surfaces without a technician needing to use invasive action to gain access.
Every home is different. Our approach is to treat each home as a unique challenge. For a restoration that tailors to you, contact SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County at (972) 227-0800.
