How Professionals Remove Water From Reading Homes
The Two Different Types of Water Removal Services for Residents of Reading
Our homes are full of always moving parts like appliances, sewage systems, drainage, heating ventilation & air-conditioning (HVAC) systems as well as water supply pipes. When all of these are functioning correctly, we barely notice them. However, a fault with any of these moving parts can result in a water emergency in your home. Sometimes these malfunctioning can result in excessive amounts of moisture entering the home and damaging flooring, carpets, rugs, and furniture.
Residents that need water removal services here in Reading can reach out to us via our twenty-four-hour emergency call line. SERVPRO technicians live and work locally so we can mobilize expert technicians with short notice. The restoration planning starts from the moment you contact us, and from here, we can assess what equipment is necessary as well as the extent of harm. There are two main categories that we need to be aware of for a water restoration project.
The first category for water restoration technicians (WRT) is the removal of standing water. We classify standing water as any amount of moisture above two inches. Water at this level has a high risk of migrating into other areas of the home, including cavities in wall spaces and subfloor. There is also a high risk of clean water degrading into a more severe case. Our range of gas pumps at SERVPRO can transport high volumes of water out of the home. This equipment is fully-submersible and can be electric or gas-powered depending on the requirements of the homeowner.
The second category for us to consider is removing residual moisture. Soggy carpets, flooring, or other areas of the home can increase the chances of mold and microbial growth. Using extraction equipment, SERVPRO technicians can remove up to one hundred gallons of moisture from home without having to replace storage tanks. Extractors can be light-weight for thin or weak carpets, or, for thicker rugs, we can use weighted extraction units to squeeze the moisture out of the affected material.
Water issues can come in many forms. Contact SERVPRO of Reading at (610) 779-8189.
