Our Professionals Will Return Your Home to Pre-Damage Condition
Effective water removal methods are key to restoring items after a water event. Professional services are required when you need the job to be done in the right way. It ensures your home and property is left both clean and dry. This article addresses some of the concerns that property owners in Guelph experience when such incidents happen.
The equipment that our SERVPRO technicians use when performing water removal procedures makes the difference. Water removal is the first step we perform when we start performing restoration procedures. We have to look at the depth of the standing water and whether the site is accessible or not. We use portable water extractors when removing water from an area that does not have enough space to place massive water extraction tools such as truck-mounted water extractors.
When water remains in place for some time, some parts of the structure such as walls and their insulation are likely to be affected. We can use moisture meters to determine the content of moisture in the waters. Normally, we have non-penetrating and penetrating moisture meters. Our SERVPRO technicians have the skills of determining the right tools to use. If the structure is adversely affected, we may go ahead and remove the baseboards. After removing them, venting the walls cavities is possible as part of the restoration process.
It is the work of SERVPRO technicians to inspect the insulation of your property. The insulation power lessens, and some can be matted after the water event - which occurs in most porous insulation. Though it is possible to restore fiberglass insulation, it is not always the case. We check whether the level of the water is above the sill plate before making appropriate restoration measures. Our experts have done this before, and we know the challenges we need to overcome when doing this work.
