Professional Equipment Makes the Difference in Fort Worth Flood Damage Cleanup
SERVPRO will clean your flood damage in Fort Worth the right way.
Two things about flood damage when it occurs: first, cleanup has to start quickly. Second, all water requires the removal and inadequate extraction of water leaves the property open for more costly issues.
SERVPRO technicians utilize a wide array of water extraction equipment when working on flood damage in a Fort Worth property. Each surface and amount of water dictates the type of removal equipment chosen for use. Before water removal efforts commence, technicians scope the property using different kinds of moisture detection devices to ascertain areas where there are excessive levels of moisture that require extraction or drying attention.
Water Extraction from Carpet
In cases of wet carpeting from rainwater entering the home and the cleanup started within 24 hours, there is potential for restoration of the carpet. SERVPRO technicians use a host of tools such as pumps with weighted carpet wands or deep extractor tools, and Rovers that use the weight of a technician to push water out of carpeted surfaces. When carpet absorbs groundwater, there is no restoration potential. The technicians extract the water and cut the carpet into strips for easier handling.
Hardwood Flooring with Water Damage
Wood flooring constructed from composite never fares well with water exposure and is generally a loss. Hardwood flooring has restoration potential on a case by case basis partly determined on the category and length of water exposure. SERVPRO technicians use squeegee attachments with wet vacuums and follow up using drying mats to limit the warping or buckling.
Special Attention to the Subfloor
When water enters a property, it follows the path of least resistance and migrates into the subflooring rapidly. The use of inadequate or improper removal methods leaves the property open for the weakening of the building materials, foul odors, and mold infestations. Technicians use squeegee attachments when pooling water is an issue.
