The Water Removal Process


Excessive water, regardless of the source, can destroy some property (cloth and paper) in less than an hour or two. Carpets, wood flooring, and even some concrete pads can be damaged as well. In a 24-hour period, sheetrock can absorb enough water to begin to crumble or even allow mold growth to begin.

Regarding water removal in Pineland homes, SERVPRO maintains an inventory of the latest equipment in the restoration industry to extract water from every room and situation, irrespective of the source (rainfall or plumbing failure). We also have a rapid response team trained to the industry standards set up by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) in every office.

Removing water is not merely using a pump to draw out a couple of inches in the living room. We also train our personnel on the following four tasks to ensure restoration of your home to its original state.

Applied Structural Drying - Our team members learn to use an array of testing equipment that measures air moisture levels. We maintain a series of extractors to remove water from the air as well as commercial heaters, air movers and fans to dry out flooring and walls that were under water or absorbing water from high levels in the home.

Carpet Cleaning - Employees learn to identify the types of fibers used in carpets and how to clean each one. Training also covers the dye colors used in them to make certain the correct cleaning agent is used as well the best vacuum available to draw out water and soil without damage.

Controlling Odors - Technicians learn to identify the source of odors caused by water damage using air content monitors to trace the amount of mold in the air. They also learn to safely use the deodorizing and cleaning chemicals available according to state and federal regulations.

Fabric Cleaning - Response team members learn the specific cleaning requirements for the types of fabrics found in curtains and drapes as well as the upholstery for most furniture. The emphasis here is to prevent shrinking and colors from bleeding out of the fabrics while extracting water and removing dirt and other contaminants.

Even if the water in your home drained on its own, you might still have hidden problems that require an inspection. It is the perfect time to contact us here at SERVPRO of Cape Coral to handle any issue you might have. Call us at (239) 573-5911 today to begin.
