After A Water Damage Disaster In Your Boynton Beach Home, You Need The Professionals At SERVPRO!
Difference Between Professional And DIY Water Removal In Boynton Beach Properties
When water damage happens in your home, fast cleanup is vital. There are a lot of actions property owners can take to remove the water they can see; however, the real damage occurs from the water that migrates to areas that are difficult to reach. The longer this excessive moisture remains, the more the potential for weakened building materials and mold growth.
When SERVPRO handles water removal in Boynton Beach homes, it is not uncommon to find the homeowner has already cleaned up some water using towels for blotting or mopping. Some homeowners have wet/dry vacuums they used on water loss areas. These are beneficial actions before our technicians arrive on site.
When our technicians spring into action, we utilize several professional tools for the fast removal of water, including:
• portable pumps for mobility
• weighted extractors to push the water out of saturated carpet
• wands for extracting water from hard-to-reach areas
• moisture detection equipment including probes and thermal imaging to locate any pocket of excessive moisture
Household fans dry a room eventually, but only on surfaces, and it does nothing about embedded moisture which has the potential to lead to both mold and foul odors if not extracted. SERVPRO technicians set up air movers in configurations unique to the job site and use the science of psychrometrics or the study of air and water vapor to dry rooms and hit drying goals quickly. They utilize the force of the airflow to pull moisture to the surface. Once there, our dehumidifiers capture the water vapor and port it away. This cycle continues and rapidly brings the humidity down in the room, which inhibits mold growth.
After drying, thorough hand cleaning of all water-affected surfaces eliminates water odors and leaves surfaces disinfected. Our professional formulas also help prevent the growth of mold and bacteria.
