Trust SERVPRO Cleaned For Water Damage Extraction & Drying

6/27/2022 (Permalink)


 Water damage can happen at any time. When your Matteson-Homewood residential or commercial property is affected, the most crucial step to take is to extract any standing water and dry moisture remnants quickly.

One category of equipment that plays a crucial role during properties is lift-equipment. Pumps and water extractors fall under this category. When used properly, they can help remove significant amounts of water from your property within a short period of time.  Equipment that extracts water from your property is the lift capacity and CFM, Cubic Feet per Minute, rating. Apart from that, the kind of wand attached to the extractor also matters. You should choose carpet wands for carpeted surfaces, and squeegee wands for wood and other hard surfaces. Our SERVPRO of Matteson-Homewood certified and trained technicians have access to a wide range of equipment and accessories to tackle all situations.

Drying helps remove the final moisture remnants in affected areas. Drying relies on evaporation which incidentally removes moisture from materials but leaves it in the air. Condensation can reverse this process. Combining equipment that improves evaporation and those that extracts moisture from the air, such as dehumidifiers, guarantees a good outcome. Our SERVPRO of Matteson-Homewood technicians have access to a wide range of extraction equipment that ensures balanced drying, including:

    •    LGR Dehumidifiers
    •    Desiccant Dehumidifiers
    •    Box Fan Extractors
    •    Centrifugal Air Movers
