Why SERVPRO Water Damage In Your Silt Home Does Not Stand A Chance Against Our Advanced Equipment Water can damage your home, and our team can make it “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO's Use Of The Latest In Technology Means More Efficient Water Removal From Homes In Silt

When you do all you can to maintain and protect your home in Silt from wear and tear, as well as accidents, the unexpected can leave you wondering what to do. When a water line breaks or a hose slips free, your residence can quickly become a mess of soggy carpeting or worse. Getting it cleaned up fast helps prevent further damage, but in such situations, a mop and bucket fall short of your needs.

Homeowners in the Silt area can rely on SERVPRO to help in such emergencies by providing water removal services using the latest in technological developments. We do more than extract the water that escaped through the faulty water line. We also get your home dried out again in a precise manner. While many people may want to dry things out as quickly as they can, this can also cause problems with more sensitive materials in the home. Wood can warp and crack when exposed to too large a change in its moisture content, even if that includes the elimination of excess moisture.

To prevent this kind of damage to wood and other materials, we study the best ways to handle the materials used in the construction of homes and other types of buildings in different situations. Water can damage a large portion of a home, but handling a disaster requires both knowledge and skill, as well as the proper training of the equipment used to eliminate disasters. Proper mitigation helps solve existing damage and eliminate the possibility of additional harm to the property.

With water, SERVPRO extracts the visible water, either by large and powerful pumps or with hand-held wands, depending on the amount of water. We wipe down surfaces that appear damp and take readings with different types of equipment. Hidden moisture affects the temperature of many materials, so using infrared devices to detect these changes can lead us to such locations. We use other devices to determine the moisture content and then compare these readings to materials sheets detailing the acceptable levels of moisture in similar materials.

After we begin drying the area and eliminating excess moisture and any present water vapor, we continue to monitor the issue to ensure proper drying rates. Once finished, we confirm this with additional readings. Throughout the process, we document all our work, as well as the readings.

Because SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties takes the responsibility of assisting property owners in Redstone, Basalt, and Carbondale seriously, we keep updated regarding the latest water removal techniques. Call (970) 618-1516 to ensure your home receives attention from IICRC certified technicians who want to restore your home to its previous condition, “Like it never even happened.”
