Call SERVPRO To Save Your Floors In Providence Township
SERVPRO - Water Removal Needs In Lower Providence TownshipIn Lower Providence Township, water from a broken dishwasher or a split hose supplying an ice maker can spill across an entire home in minutes. If it happens when no one is around for a weekend or only overnight, the water has time to soak in and cause permanent damage.
That is why water removal is particularly important for wooden floors in Lower Providence Township homes. SERVPRO restoration teams quickly respond to draw off any standing water and then carefully work to draw excess moisture from between floorboards and water trapped underneath them in the sub-floor.
Our technicians start with one or more of the large pumps in our equipment inventory. These machines can draw out hundreds of gallons in 24 hours. Team members can adjust the speed of each pump to maximize efforts without accidentally damaging the floors, and can clear most homes of water damage in a day or two.
After completing pumping operations, there is a thin layer of water remaining on the surface. Our technicians use extractors to remove it and the moisture between the floorboards. Depending on the size of the floor, they can choose from a portable, hand-held wand for small rooms and closets. For dining and living rooms, they can use larger devices to include truck-mounted models with extended hoses.
Once the extractors stop bringing up water, a SERVPRO inspector uses a moisture meter to determine if the humidity level is still high just over the surface of the floor. That indicates there may be water trapped under the floor, which puts it at risk for rotting and mold. To remove it, technicians remove a small section of the floorboard in an area behind floor trim or usually under a large item like a couch.
They install an air mover and attach a hose to force warm, dry air under the floor. The action accelerates evaporation to carefully remove the water without over drying the floor and causing secondary damage like splitting or cracking to the floorboards.
Swift removal of any flooding is necessary to restore area homes in our area and throughout Pennsylvania. If you have suffered any water damage, and are concerned for your floors or other parts of your home, contact SERVPRO of Norristown today at (610) 272-8520. We are here for you.
