Water Extraction Services

While in words alone the action sounds simple, in restoration it’s not as straightforward as it may seem.

In providing water extraction services careful attention should be given to the potential for hidden or trapped water and pockets of moisture.

A proper inspection will include the use of state of the art moisture detection equipment such as non-penetrating meters, penetrating meters and thermal imaging tools. Careful attention should be paid to wall and cabinet voids in preventing the possibility of overlooking potential pockets of hidden water or moisture damage. Any moisture left unattended can and will quickly lead to secondary damage or mold growth in building materials and your personal property and contents.

Water in your home or office is never a good thing. Whether the excess water was caused by flooding, sump pump failure or a burst pipe, you need to take immediate action in order to minimize the damage done to your home and furnishings.

When water threatens your home, there is no time to waste. You need to begin the process as soon as possible.

Standing water, if left untouched, will cause major damage to your home and belongings. From mold growth to damage to the integrity and infrastructure of your house, the consequences of water damage are serious.

Keep in mind that your first step in the water removal process that we would highly recommend, should be to call in the professionals who have the heavy duty, professional grade equipment to properly remove the water from your home. however, there are some things you can do to get the ball rolling while you wait for your emergency team to arrive.

Water Removal Remove As Much Water & Moisture As Possible

If you have a sump pump or wet vacuum and you feel comfortable, you can begin to remove the water. Keep in mind that electricity mixed with standing water is incredibly dangerous and the utmost caution needs to be used.

Never attempt to use your regular household vacuum to extract water from your home.

Remove Wet Objects

Any flooring that isn’t secured to your home, such as area rugs, can be removed from the area and brought somewhere where they can dry out. Any valuables should be moved to higher, dryer ground and curtains or draperies should either be removed or tied up off the floor.

The more wet items that can be cleared out of the room, the quicker the water can be removed, and the drying process can begin. Do not attempt to remove any heavy furniture on your own.

Also, never try to rip up and remove carpeting or flooring that is anchored to your floor, leave this to the professionals if need be.

Assist the Drying Process

The first thing that you can do to help speed up the drying process is to open all your closets, cabinet doors, windows and doors (if weather permits). Opening your home to natural air flow is especially effective in low humidity situations.

You can also employ the use of fans and blowers to help move air around your home to speed up the drying out process. If you HVAC system has water damage, do not use the fans or blowers.

If you have a dehumidifier, now would be a good time to get that out and running. Dehumidifiers take the water vapor out of the air which allows the rest of the room to dry out. Again, be sure the dehumidifier is not being used in an area of standing water as electricity and water do not mix.

Emergency Water Extraction Professionals

Once your emergency water damage team arrives, they will get to work immediately on professionally removing all the water from your home. Using the latest technology and water mitigation equipment available, our water extraction process typically follows the following procedures:

  • Our experienced professionals will bring in heavy duty submersible pumps and truck mounted vacuums to suck up at any standing water.
    • This step helps to speed up the drying time and reduces your chance of having mold grow and any other secondary damage to occur.
  • After the bulk of the water has been soaked up and sucked out, wet carpet and padding can be removed.
    • This helps to protect the sub flooring. We aim to salvage as much of your homes’ furnishings as possible, but dependent on the extent of the damage, some flooring may need to be ripped up and replaced.
  • Dependent on the situation, our team may introduce moisture detectors and hygrometers to determine what the moisture saturation level is. This level will give us an idea of what our steps need to be moving forward and the extent of the water damage to your home or business.

After the bulk of the water removal has been done, it is time to begin the drying process. Although your walls and flooring may appear to be dry, chances are there is retained moisture that will need to be thoroughly dried out. Thermal imaging tools will allow for a through inspection of potential damage to the building materials.

Many building materials are porous, which means they retain water. If the retained water is not properly dried up it can lead to mold growth and warped or damaged walls and flooring, making it vital that they be completely dried out before your home or business can be considered “back to normal.”

Our certified team will come in with our cutting-edge tools and drying equipment such as dehumidifiers and air movers to regulate the temperature and humidity level in the affected space. Our specialized equipment includes the latest available technology in industrial dehumidifiers and air movers which will aid in removing all the retained water from the materials in your home.

The drying process is monitored closely using both non-invasive and penetrating moisture meters until the area is completely dry. Affected materials are monitored daily to ensure that the water elimination process is done thoroughly so you don’t experience any secondary damage due to leftover dampness.

If mold is found present, iDry has a specialized mold remediation using environmentally friendly  cleaning methods and following written guidelines provided the EPA.gov and the IICRC . Mold in your home is not only dangerous for the integrity of your home’s structure, but also dangerous to you and your family.

Mold spores can cause allergic reactions in many people with a myriad of side effects. If mold is found present in your home, rapid response and a detailed plan of action for remediation is critical both for your property and your health and safety.
