Fast Solutions for Extraction in Damaged Roseville Homes 

Many consider substantial water loss incidents in their Roseville homes to be a total loss. As leading professionals in the restoration field, we have spent many years building our brand to become a respected voice in the industry. We can make loss incidents “Like it never even happened,” and that begins with providing fast and efficient solutions to prevent further damage. 

Many homeowners mistakenly address water removal in Roseville homes without utilizing the right tools and equipment. While certain wet-dry vacuums can perform these tasks in part, there are multiple options available to property owners that can do a more efficient and thorough job. Home improvement and hardware stores in the area often stock several standard high-grade restoration tools that you can rent to begin mitigation and recovery the right way. 

There are several standard tools that you are likely to find at any of these locations, all of which can offer you effective water extraction and drying approaches. The faster you can reduce humidity and moisture levels in the affected areas, the less susceptible your home becomes to secondary effects like mold and microbial growth. Here are some of the tools that our SERVPRO team uses that you can also rent in smaller sizes from home improvement locations: 

  • Sump Pumps – These are not typically available for rent, but you can find a decent variety of them within a reasonable price range. These run on electricity, so if your home has lost power on account of the standing water, you cannot utilize these tools without portable power solutions.
  • Large Volume Wet-Vacs – Many homeowners have purchased a wet-dry vac, especially for areas in the home susceptible to dampness like the basement or garages. Higher capacity units can work to redirect water flow to a drain or outside your home with powerful suction. 
  • Trash Pumps – These gas-powered units are part of the SERVPRO arsenal because of their power and their ability to work without the need for a generator or available electric. Many of these units must get primed to function correctly, but there are many easy solutions to get the extraction started. 

It is not uncommon for water loss incidents to get addressed quickly enough not to become substantial concerns for our customers. Our SERVPRO of North Stafford County professionals have a full inventory of recovery tools and extensive experience to offer any situation, whether you need a helping hand, or the situation has gotten out of your control. Give us a call anytime at (540) 720-1535.

Ensuring Your Stafford Home Gets Properly Dry after Water Damage

Water loss incidents can present enough of a dire situation for your Stafford home even when the situation gets resolved quickly by professionals. Though with a growing number of homeowners that wish to overcome these effects on their own to both save time and money, there is a much larger concern of phases like drying happening as thoroughly as they should. Lingering moisture can present substantial threats to structural integrity, and also welcome hazardous secondary conditions like mold growth.

As much as consumer products have continued to evolve to better handle the severity of water damage in Stafford residences, without monitoring the situation, you can easily miss moisture pockets and dampness beyond the surface. Our SERVPRO professionals arrive with many discovery devices such as hygrometers and infrared imagery to help see beyond the immediate surfaces to locate any moisture existing in wall cavities, beneath flooring, or behind ceiling materials. 

You might find that overcoming moisture and saturation of specific structural elements and construction materials is more challenging than others and requires advanced tools and equipment. As of 2018, our SERVPRO team has been HomeAdvisor Screened & Approved, showcasing our knowledge for what your property needs and the expertise to get the job done the first time correctly. We are continually working to improve our inventory of recovery and mitigation equipment, always having the latest and most effective machines for the work that we do. 

Ensuring that lingering moisture and dampness do not exist might require homeowners to have this same sophisticated equipment and devices if they seek to perform the work on their own. Many of these tools, including air movers, dehumidifiers, and even air scrubbers for purification efforts can get rented or purchased from chain home improvement locations near to your home. 

For as straightforward as some water loss incidents might appear, you could welcome worsening conditions to your property without fully determining the success of your drying efforts. If you need a second opinion or want our SERVPRO of North Stafford County to handle the phases of recovery for your property, give us a call 24/7 at (540) 720-1535.
