Your Best Guide to Water Damage Restoration in St. Petersburg
An Efficient Method for Water Removal in St. Petersburg Properties
A common mantra in the restoration industry is that water moves from wet to dry. Standing water then can rapidly saturate subfloor mats, sheetrock or pool underneath fittings and furniture. The significant risk is that, if not dealt with correctly, hidden water pockets can become odorous or provide the ideal conditions for mold growth which can cause expensive secondary damages. As a general rule, the removal of standing water should be completed as quickly as possible to prevent permanent issues.
We are available 24 hours a day for water removal in St. Petersburg. Simply contact our emergency call line to arrange a service within an hour. When arranging a service providing as much detail as possible is essential to ensure we send the right equipment and technicians with the right expertise to solve the problem. At SERVPRO, we have technicians with IICRC certificates in a range of water damage areas like applied structural drying (ASD) and odor control.
The most efficient method of removing standing water is with gas-powered pumps. We deploy these when the water level is above two inches and run the pumps into an open sewer point. The advantage of this method is that the amount of water we can remove is limitless and can be done faster than any other method. This process alone can significantly reduce the risk of permanent damages.
With standing water removed SERVPRO then utilizes an approach that is kind to your furniture, carpets, and fittings. Portable extraction units combine heating elements with vacuum power to help pull moisture from floorboards and carpets. A fabric is up to 50% weaker when wet so using extraction units ensures that we do not damage any fittings unnecessarily during cleanup.
SERVPRO uses a triple lock technique to make the damage "Like it never even happened." After pumps and extraction units we bring in rapid air-movers in tandem with dehumidifiers. These equipment evaporate moisture into the air then remove the evaporated moisture to ensure the humidity levels in your home remain at an average level. This technique helps to prevent secondary mold damages after service.
Our equipment helps us get the job done faster. Contact SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg at (727) 522-0000 for efficient remediation services.
