Let Professionals Handle Your Water Damage Needs

8/1/2022 (Permalink)

Water leaking across a floor. Water leaks can come on suddenly. Have a plan and call professional remediation services as quickly as possible to limit any damage.

Water damage can come from a variety of sources, the most common being from plumbing issues. Damage to an average-sized house from water can run a homeowner thousands of dollars. Antique furniture, electronics, hardwood floor and carpeting only add to the cost if they are affected.

At SERVPRO of Bath, we are trained to respond quickly to calls for a burst pipe or leaking water heater so we can remove water as fast as possible. Once we’ve removed all the water, we immediately begin the drying process to both personal property and the structure. One of the things we do during the drying process is to set up dehumidifiers. Dehumidifiers draw water from the air and nearby materials like upholstery and curtains. This creates a drier environment which allows evaporation to happen, thereby helping save building materials such as drywall.

As the dehumidifiers work, SERVPRO technicians use extraction devices to dry any carpeting. In most cases, that means we use extraction wands. For heavier carpets, our team can also use a riding extractor. On this piece of equipment, a driver rides on top of the device and uses his or her weight to press down the carpet and pad, removing even more water. 

If you need help with any type of water damage, let us be your first line of action to reduce and eliminate the effects of water damage in your home or business.
