How SERVPRO Removes Water from Your San Antonio Home
The Case for Professional Water Removal in Your San Antonio Home
When an appliance or plumbing line breaks in your San Antonio home the amount of water threatening your property can be shocking. If the emergency happens when you are out of town or even away on a work day you can return to several inches to feet of standing water in the affected spaces. Facing the task of removing this amount of water with a wet household vacuum or a bucket and mop is a mistake. You need water moved out fast, and our highly-qualified crews can help.
The keys to efficient water removal in San Antonio are commercial grade equipment and specially trained technicians. Water damage moves quickly from inconvenience to significant structural component deterioration if not removed fast. Water that lingers more than 24 to 48 hours also subjects your home to the risk of secondary damage such as mold growth. You need a partner during this crisis with experienced employees and state of the art water removal and drying tools.
SERVPRO crews arrive within hours in our signature green trucks loaded with the equipment needed to remove water, detect structural moisture levels, and dry out your home. Submersible pumps and truck-mounted water extractors do quick work of suctioning out large quantities of water. If the electricity in your home is unavailable temporarily for safety reasons, we forge ahead using generators on our vehicles.
Our crews certify as moisture measurement experts through IICRC coursework. SERVPRO also uses thermal scanning devices to locate any hidden pockets of water that need release and extraction after the water loss. Determining the levels of excess water with meters and probes in building materials and fixtures informs our drying goals. We position air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to remove residual moisture, vital to restore the function of the building materials shaping and supporting your home.
A final step in the water removal protocol is sanitation with an EPA registered disinfectant. SERVPRO treats the affected areas to inhibit any potential mold growth and to control malodors. Our full-service water removal and damage mitigation services get your property back “Like it never even happened.”
