How Professionals Remove Water in Your San Antonio Property
Important Milestones during Water Removal in San Antonio
Water spills can happen any time causing great inconvenience. The process of removing the spilled water to restore the home to preloss state is also tedious especially if the spill happens when no one is around to take instant remedial action. You can ease the burden by involving a professional water restoration service. If done correctly, the process should also exceed certain milestones.
Spilled water raises the relative humidity in the affected areas so one of the milestones of water removal in San Antonio should be to bring such levels down. High levels of humidity can cause mold development in parts of the property such as walls or even contents such as clothes and furniture. Our SERVPRO technicians work to reduce relative humidity to less than 60 percent within the first 24 to 48 hours after the spill helping curtail mold development.
Many materials in the home absorb water and can hold it over extended periods. Such materials include carpets, wooden floorboards, drywall, and even upholstery. Properly drying such materials is essential because the moisture held can cause various problems including deterioration of the structural integrity of the affected material and bad odors. Our SERVPRO Franchise professionals combine advanced moisture detection and drying techniques to ensure proper drying. We use moisture sensors with probes to check the level of moisture migration in materials such as carpets. We also have moisture meters that help us find out the actual moisture content of various materials to guarantee that they are dry.
Even when water spills from a clean source, it can lead to soiling in various ways. Stain transfer between fabrics such as draperies and carpets is common. Water can also transfer debris such as dust in the ceiling or pet waste to other parts of the property.
Cleaning up the affected areas is, therefore, an integral part of the water removal exercise. Our SERVPRO Franchise professionals check for stains on carpets and clean them while still wet. We also check hidden areas where waste can remain hidden after cleanup to avoid problems like a bad odor that develops later.
