The Real Truth Behind Pinellas County Water Damage and Mold
How to Handle Water Removal in Pinellas County
Your Pinellas County property can flood in seconds especially if the main pipes burst or someone leaves the tap running. Although the flooding happens fast, extracting the water takes time leading to damages in various items or sections of the house. The damage extent is likely to be higher if no one is home to turn off the water. Involving a certified water restoration technician in the removal process can help ease the task compared to handling it on your own. Technicians rely on equipment, their previous experience, and teamwork to save your property.
One of the reasons such technicians can handle water removal in Pinellas County better is the use of advanced moisture detection equipment. The technicians also understand the effects of moisture on various materials such as carpets, furnishings, wood flooring if there is one, and the actual structure. So in addition to extracting the standing water, they can take specific actions to prevent future problems.
Fast extraction of water from the affected building is essential. When spilled water is left standing long, other problems begin cropping up. Mold is one such problem, and it only requires 24 – 48 hours to start growing. Bad odor and stains can also develop within the same time span. Our SERVPRO team can help guarantee fast extraction since we have the right equipment including submersible pumps and truck-mounted extractors.
While extracting spilled water may seem like a daunting task, drying the structure is even more problematic. This extra difficulty is because removing a liquid is easier than a gas yet the only way to dry materials is to turn the moisture they hold into a vapor before removing it. Our SERVPRO technicians use different types of dehumidifiers such as desiccant and refrigerant varieties to handle various stages of the drying process. We also calculate and set a drying goal, which we achieve by using the right number and configuration of air movers.
