The Techniques and Equipment Used During Water Removal in a Mesa Home

When your home in Mesa takes on water from a flood or other source of water, getting the water out of your residence becomes an immediate priority. To make sure that a thorough and complete job takes place, SERVPRO technicians use different tools.
 
We use many tools and equipment in the water removal process for Mesa properties. They help us measure the amount of moisture in different materials and also in the air.- SH and RH-specific and relative humidity. When high standing water is a problem, we use our large truck-mounted pumps to extract the water from your floors. Wet carpets, rugs, and wood floors that have much less water only need hand-held water removal extraction units to get a good start.
 
Carpeting is highly porous while stone and concrete are not able to absorb as much. However, carpeting, like other porous items, dries faster than non-porous things. Drywall, rugs, draperies, and many types of wood readily release the water molecules when conditions outside become drier.
 
Because harder, less porous materials retain moisture, we use heated air movers to increase the movement of the molecules in the area. This rapid circulation helps the water to evaporate back into the air as it is swept from the wet item. Once there, we direct the moister air out of your home or into individual chambers, depending on the material we are drying, with the use of air movers.
 
These air movers also work to remove water vapor that permeates the entire area of your home from the primary intrusion. When water first enters a home, it begins evaporating. This moisture remains, mingling with additional water vapor and also condensing in cooler places inside your house. Wicking and absorption can lead to the activation of existing microbes and eventually lead to infestations of mold and mildew. Of course, damp materials can also simply degrade as their characteristics change. SERVPRO technicians know it is crucial we restore dry conditions quickly to prevent this type of damage. Excess moisture can also cause wall coverings to begin peeling, wooden trim to lose its finish and also warp or crack, and many other situations.
