Residential Water Removal in Tallahassee
SERVPRO Technicians Arrive On the Scene With Equipment to Effectively Dry Out Your Home After Water Damage
Even with the storms of last year, most Tallahassee residential water damage comes from common sources like a split water line running to the dishwasher or your refrigerator’s ice maker. While it can be as physically damaging as storm flooding, water from a plumbing issue is not considered to be contaminated.
For a Tallahassee home needing water removal, this means a SERVPRO restoration team can bring in the right equipment and get started immediately. No time is lost to spraying water surfaces with anti-bacterial or anti-fungal agents to protect technicians or residents from potential hazards.
In private homes in Florida, there are no basements and rarely a sub-floor space, so the water inside is usually shallow unless the surrounding landscape drains into the home. That means our technicians do not need a commercial pump to remove large amounts of water, and instead use extraction wands to draw water off of the floors and out of the carpets.
The extraction wands in our equipment inventory come in a variety of types and sizes. For small rooms, team members use a portable device that captures water in a separate tank. For larger rooms and hallways, there is also an extractor that a SERVPRO technician stands on as it propels itself across the room. Both work well on carpets and wood flooring.
Every extraction device in our inventory has adjustable vacuum speeds and a heating element. These settings help our trained specialists match the type of carpet to ensure the water is removed quickly without causing damage to the nap of the carpet or accidentally overheating the glue holding the layers together, separating them and causing air pockets to form. Careful application of heat also helps speed the process of drying out wood floors without causing or aggravating any warping or cracking of the floorboards.
To finish the task, technicians use air movers to force warm, dry air across floors and underneath carpets. This process dries both, removing the last traces of moisture, and returning the home to its original condition.
Regardless of how the water got into your home, you need to remove it as quickly as possible. If you need us, call SERVPRO of North Leon County today at (850) 536-6599. We are here to help you return your home, and life, back to normal.
