SERVPRO state of the art sign Water damage restoration is no DIY project. SERVPRO uses the latest technology and equipment for every size disaster.

Yes, One Way This Is Achieved in Morgan Hill Is Through In-Place Drying Techniques.

When your Morgan Hill residence suffers a water-related event, it can be devastating and cause massive disruptions to your daily life. This, however, doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. There are methods, like in-place carpet drying measures, which make cleanup and restoration efforts much easier.

The beauty of hiring a supremely experienced firm like SERVPRO is benefiting from its innovative, trouble-saving water restoration techniques in Morgan Hill. In doing so, homeowners can usually reduce the disruption of water removal services and water damage repairs, as well as the time it takes to remediate the overall effects of burst pipes, basement flooding, and ceiling leaks. One of the many ways SERVPRO does this is through in-place carpet drying methods.

In-place carpet drying generally involves:

  • Stopping water migration with a regular wand and truck-mounted extractor and then using a weighted extraction tool to finish the job
  • First extracting water from the center carpeting of a room, then moving furnishings to the room’s water-extracted center, and finally removing moisture from the perimeter flooring
  • Periodically rolling up and squeezing corners of the carpet to determine when water removal efforts are completed; extractions usually take an hour for each 300 square feet
  • Calculating the number of dehumidifiers necessary for complete drying and the use of an air mover for every 50 or 60 square feet of the impacted area

By taking these steps, homeowners suffer fewer disruptions because furnishings don’t have to be moved out of impacted rooms. Also, carpet generally experiences less damage since seams aren’t cut, and carpet reinstallation isn’t necessary.

So, if you ever need water restoration work done, call your friends at SERVPRO of Morgan Hill/Gilroy. We are always ready for your call at (408) 500-0657.
