Removal of Ruined Components
Our SERVPRO restoration team can evaluate if it is possible to decontaminate ruined structures and contents or if it is necessary to remove and replace them. The decision to replace or restore depends on pretest results, the nature of the contamination, and the material's porosity.
If your carpet sustained water damage, we could use carpet wands to extract the water. These devices are appropriate for the initial water extraction from glue-down carpets. They are also useful for removing residual water on the surface of carpets after restorers have used a stationary tool.
Cleaning and Disinfection of Salvageable Contents
We perform a cleanup of contamination before beginning restorative drying. However, our SERVPRO team provides humidity control in contaminated areas to reduce moisture migration, microbial amplification, and potential secondary damage. We set up and turn on dehumidifiers to reduce the humidity within the affected areas.
Drying the Affected Areas
Our SERVPRO restorers can dry out the affected surfaces using air movers and refrigerant dehumidifiers. These dehumidifiers work almost the same way as air conditioners work. They use the dew point principle to eliminate water vapor from the air. The cold refrigerant is pumped through coils, and the moist air in the area that is being dried gets moved across the cold evaporator coils. As the dehumidifiers cool air at or below the dew point, water vapor condenses on the cold coils and fins. The water drains off the fins into a collection tank and is pumped out of the home.
