Water Cleanup Professionals In Jacksonville Report On The Tools Of Their Trade
Excessive moisture can find its way into your Jacksonville condo in several different ways. For example, if a water pipe breaks or an appliance such as your dishwasher malfunctions, the result could be you being forced to conduct voluminous water cleanup. Once your contents and building materials get wet, the problems can get worse; the longer items stay moist. Mildew odors and mold can develop if moisture is not removed from affected items promptly.
The quicker our SERVPRO team can arrive at your water cleanup project in Jacksonville, the better chances we have of saving your contents and building materials in your condominium. Once moisture gets into your dwelling, it starts to soak into your building's structural components. Liquid H2O left standing indoors will eventually evaporate into the air and raise your interior's relative humidity level. After the majority of the moisture soaks into substances and fills the air as vapor, removing it becomes very difficult.
Our SERVPRO technicians know that a major part of removing moisture from your structure is the initial extraction phase. The facts prove that it is 1,200 times easier to remove H2O when it is still in the liquid phase. During every restoration project, we spend extra time extracting so that we can get up as much water as possible before it changes to the gas phase or soaks into items.
When extracting water from your building, we use a heavy-duty extractor. The machines we use are made for carpet cleaning, and they can be used to vacuum the water out of your building materials like your carpeting and your contents such as your couch or recliner chair. We can use either a portable unit that enables us to get into tight spaces, or we can utilize our truck-mounted system for larger jobs.
Once our SERVPRO crew decides on the best extractor to use, we pick a tool to attach to the vacuum engine. Since carpet is 50% weaker when it is wet, we carefully choose which extraction wand will work the best. The idea when extracting carpet is to use an extraction tool heavy enough to cause compression and slight agitation, but the device needs to be designed in a way that will help keep the wand from damaging carpet and upholstering during extraction procedures.
