Extraction Equipment and Water Removal in St. Petersburg
SERVPRO Water Restoration Services Can Dry your Property Fast
Water intrusion can be costly and time-consuming for homeowners. Once water enters a home, it begins to degrade, causing harm to building materials and belongings. SERVPRO understands that drying your property is essential to mitigating losses. We have the technicians and equipment to help.
Undertaking a water removal project for St. Petersburg residents requires excellent organization and efficient planning. The faster liquid is removed, the sooner technicians can tackle the existing damages. To remove liquid, we use industrial water extractors. This equipment is commonly truck mounted with a long duct that transports water out of the property and into a storage tank. Extraction equipment can be fitted with various attachments to aid water removal. We can adjust the wand size to allow technicians to extract from tight corners and restricted spaces. An extractor can resemble an industrial vacuum in larger rooms and be run across floors or carpets. SERVPRO technicians may repeat this process several times to ensure as much residual moisture is removed. Extraction equipment is helpful for:
- Drying wet properties
- Water removal
- Water mitigation
Removing water with extraction tools is the most efficient way to dry your property and mitigate losses. In some circumstances, extraction may not be enough. Water naturally migrates, moving from wet to dry. Sometimes moisture migration can reach the home's inaccessible parts, such as the subfloor or wall cavities. In these situations, the running of venting equipment and dehumidification is necessary to prevent potential mold growth. The drying principles with air movement rely on one tool to evaporate moisture and another to pull the evaporated water from the air. Technicians need to provide a natural equilibrium between the number of air movers and dehumidifiers to maximize drying efficiency. We achieve this by performing psychrometric calculations and monitoring the drying procedure from start to finish.
- Extraction tools can be portable on upper floors or in apartment buildings.
- All extractors utilize heating, vacuum, and storage elements.
- Sometimes, extractors can be used on carpets without needing to remove furnishings or flooring- known as in-place drying.
