Portland Home Damaged from Water Needs Extraction Fast

Water intrusion events wreak havoc on a home, making the possibility of any delay in correcting problem result in additional losses.

When a broken appliance causes water damage in your Portland area home, seeking professional assistance should be your primary goal. If you are dealing with this kind of disaster, contact our offices immediately to receive the help you deserve.
SERVPRO technicians take pride in being faster to any disaster, we respond quickly and utilize our experience and training to determine the source of any moisture problems that exist in your home. Our water extraction equipment provides us with the ability to remove any lingering water from the affected areas in a quick, efficient manner.
The strength of a pump regarding lift and volume capacity gauges its effectiveness to address your situation. When the standing water in your home exceeds two inches in depth, SERVPRO technicians utilize submersible pumps that have the capacity to remove water without causing damage to your carpet, flooring, or furniture.
Extraction is far more efficient than dehumidification when dealing with excessive moisture. Therefore, portable extractors with five to twelve-gallon solution and waste tanks are used for small jobs, while truck mounted extractors with sixty to one hundred gallon containers are used for jobs in larger areas.
A variety of air moving equipment becomes useful during the drying process, including air movers that have inlet and outlet screens, three prong plugs for safety and thermally protected motors. Wall cavity ventilation systems are used to direct airflow to the inside of your walls, replacing moist air with dry air.
While venting box fans (Axial Fans) that are capable of moving larger volumes of air than an air mover, are used to rid a room of noxious odors created by water damage in your home. A venting fan can handle moving 3,200 CFM and is ideal for use after technicians utilize fogging equipment to deodorize an entire room. Dehumidifiers of different types remove water vapor from the surrounding air. Refrigerant dehumidifiers send air through a set of refrigerated coils that cause water vapor to separate, running into a collection tray, returning the dry, warm air to the surrounding area.
While desiccant dehumidifiers allow air to pass through a silica gel that captures water molecules, using heat to evaporate the collected water, adjusting temperature and humidity levels in more confined spaces. Each of these dehumidifiers has a particular operating range and power requirements to operate efficiently.
SERVPRO technicians are well versed in the use of this equipment as well as performing any services you may require to return your home to a quality pre-damage condition.
