What Complicates Water Removal In Norristown Homes

Leaks, spills and other incidents can deposit significant amounts of water in your home in a matter of minutes or hours. However, removal can take longer and require extra effort, which leads many people to seek help. Several factors lead to such an outcome. We offer professional removal services that help Norristown homeowners restore their properties to their preloss state.

The percentage of porous materials in the house affected by the incident complicates water removal in Norristown. In many homes, there is a wide range of porous materials including carpets, upholstery items and floor materials such as wood. As the water flows over these materials, they absorb some of it necessitating extra steps during the removal. The ASD, Applied Structural Drying, training our SERVPRO technicians get helps them identify the best approaches to dry wetness from the porous materials. We use sophisticated moisture detection equipment such as moisture sensors with probes to check the level of moisture in different materials allowing us to determine the necessary drying procedures.

After the water spills, it migrates to different areas within the home. Some of these areas like wall cavities can retain water even after thorough extraction efforts from the affected rooms. If it remains unchecked, it can cause other problems. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate concealed areas for signs of trapped water. We can use equipment such as FLIR thermal cameras to check for wet areas. We can also use physical methods such as drilling weep holes. Once we establish the presence of water in the concealed areas, we can make flood cuts or create vent holes to facilitate removal. We also use specialized equipment such as the Injectidry system to remove water from the concealed sections.

Many water loss situations involve significant amounts of water. Removing such water can take much effort especially when done manually. The situation is more complicated when the incident affects more than one room in the house. Our SERVPRO experts use advanced equipment such as dry-wet vacs, ride-on high volume extractors or the water claw flood tool that allows extraction without removing the carpet.

In case of a water loss incident in your property, call SERVPRO of Norristown. You can reach us at (610) 272-8520 any time. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
