How SERVPRO Technicians Quickly Remove Water in Metairie
How Does SERVPRO Expedite Flood Water Removal in Metairie?
When SERVPRO handles the task of flood water removal in Metairie, the technicians have many resources to choose from for applying the best water extraction methods. First, they determine the scope of the damage to the premise and test the water. Black water is water that enters the property as flood water. This designation is because the water can pick up debris, contaminants, and toxins and is considered generally unsafe.
Technicians know the longer water stands in Metairie, the more it damages making fast action a priority. Our truck mounted pumps can move out massive amounts of water quickly. For more localized flooding, SERVPRO technicians may choose to use multiple portable extractors and cover several areas at once. Each black water-soaked item has to be examined on a case-by-case basis to see what can be restored through drying, disinfecting and cleaning and what possessions cannot. Carpet padding is usually not restorable in this type of damage; however, in some cases, carpeting may be restorable.
Drying of the premises is the next action, and air movers are brought in and set up to angle moisture up and out. Humidifiers run at the same time to bring down air moisture levels and help surfaces dry thoroughly. After removing the standing water and the drying phase has ended, technicians use moisture probes in affected areas to ensure they are dry and there is no residual moisture to create a perfect setup for mold growth.
