Prevent Unnecessary Problems In Champions 1960 After a Disaster
Dealing with Water Removal in Your Champions 1960 Property
Water damage results from heavy rain, storms, leaks, burst pipes, failed appliances, or other incidences. The removal process requires trained technicians and equipment. Some situations, like leaks in concealed spaces such as wall cavities or subfloors, are especially difficult to address. We offer professional water removal that helps home and business owners in Houston have peace of mind after incidents.
Reaching Water inside the Walls
Walls can present a significant challenge to the removal process. Water can find ways into wall cavities. If a supply pipe in the cavity leaks, the spill is likely to remain confined in the walls. Water spilled in other areas of the house can filter into the walls, primarily through small openings. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate the situation to determine the best course of action. We can remove the baseboards and punch small holes in wallboards to release water. These actions work best for un-insulated walls.
Removing Water from Wet Building Materials
Sometimes removing damaged materials from wall cavities requires demolition. If the water affects fibrous insulation within the walls, it is essential to remove the wet insulation when extracting the water to ensure no excess moisture remains in the wall space. Our SERVPRO technicians prop open undamaged panels for better access to the wall interiors. We remove wet insulation, extract water, and reinstall the panels after drying the area thoroughly.
Removing Water from Subfloors
Water that wicks into floor materials and subfloors can be challenging to deal with. Layers of plywood or OSB subfloors absorb water, which can lead to problems like swelling. Removing any floor coverings helps ease the process of water removal by eliminating barriers. However, it might still take many weeks to dry the material properly. Our SERVPRO technicians use LGR dehumidifiers and high-speed air movers to speed up the process.
