Why Turn to SERVPRO For Water Removal in San Antonio

One of the biggest mistakes a San Antonio homeowner can make is to fail to arrange for professional removal and drying services when water invades. Water might seem unlikely to cause significant problems if it is clean and allowed to drain away, but it can infiltrate deeply and destroy building materials. A bucket and mop or a wet or dry vacuum is an inadequate substitute for the work of trained water mitigation technicians. Your home is worth too much to risk, why engaging our services is necessary.

The destructive effects on both structural components and contents are profound when unabated. Water removal in your San Antonio home must be done rapidly, assisted by the tools and training only a professional restoration company can supply.

Less than complete removal of the excess moisture from the water event invites continuing deterioration of drywall, ceiling tiles, flooring materials and more which is why SERVPRO technicians continually train in a wide range of strategies to extract as much water as possible. Pumps and wanded extractors suction the majority of water. We then take the remediation process one step further and use effective structural drying techniques to reduce increased moisture levels in porous materials.

Special handling gives the best results with materials like hardwood floors. Preserving beautiful and functional fixtures is why SERVPRO uses advanced equipment including drying mats to extract water more deeply. Taping down the mats creates a seal, and hoses attached to the mats connect to powerful suction. The mats are moved across the surface, extracting the remaining moisture from all layers of the flooring. Similar action pulls the moisture from other porous materials and gives access to cavities behind walls without significant flood cuts.

Throughout a water mitigation project, SERVPRO technicians measure and monitor moisture levels in the structural components of your home. These measurements assist us in establishing drying goals. Air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers create conditions that move water into the air as vapor to be captured by evaporative or desiccant dehumidifiers for disposal. Eventually, the moisture returns to normal levels, and final restorations minimize the risk of mold growth or further deterioration.

Water removal is a job for the professionals, why SERVPRO of Braun Station is your reliable helper after a water loss. We are a call away at (210) 267-2159, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
