What Should I Do if There Is Water on my Floor after my Pipes Burst in Smithtown?
SERVPRO Offers Water Removal Services in the Smithtown Area
Even if the amount is small, any time water gets on your floor; it is possible that your contents and building materials could get damaged. Moisture on your carpets could cause the fibers to separate from the backing forcing them to be replaced. Hardwood floors can buckle or cup when they get wet, possibly ruining them. If moisture reaches your subflooring, then mold could develop underneath your flooring.
Our SERVPRO technicians know that removing moisture in less than 48 hours can prevent fungi from developing when conducting water removal in Smithtown. Since it is easier to remove moisture as a liquid, we start with the extraction process. If there are more than two inches of standing water on your floors, we can begin the process using a submersible pump. After the standing water gets removed, we can then use a heavy-duty extractor to remove the remaining liquids from your carpets and other flooring materials.
When dealing with hard surface floors or glue-down carpets, we can attach a light wand to our truck-mounted extractor. For thick carpets, we can use a weighted extraction tool that uses the bodyweight of the operator to compress the carpet fibers. Once all of the liquid H2O is extracted, we can set up air movers and dehumidifiers for the applied structural drying (ASD) process.
Whenever we respond to your home after a disaster, our SERVPRO technicians' main goal is to prevent secondary damage such as mold from occurring. We can avoid secondary issues and help you return your house to its preloss state by conducting the following services:
- Moisture Clean Up
- Emergency Water Removal
