Property in Glen Head, Groundwater Mess, and a SERVPRO Cleanup
Stages of Removing Floodwater from Glen Head Homes
Water removal is rarely as simple as straightforward as Glen Head homeowners might like, but our experienced restoration professionals can help with an array of premier equipment and effective techniques. Extracting water from the house refers to more than the problematic standing water that could exist after a flood, so recognizing the stages of water removal can help our customers to maintain an understanding of the progress of our drying efforts.
Even before our SERVPRO professionals have discussed the full scope of the job and what is necessary for flooding removal in your Glen Head home with the homeowner and the insurance adjuster, initial removal techniques can begin. Extraction that occurs shortly after our team first gets notified of a disaster can help to reduce the total property loss. Waiting for long periods before contacting restoration, professionals can work against the restorability of the house.
In the initial phases of recovery, extraction plays a vital role in both allowing more direct drying efforts to begin and as a method of determining the extent of present damage. The need for debris removal and muck-out services is not fully appreciated until the standing water has gotten removed from the most damaged areas of the house.
Water removal from saturated materials is another critical element to mitigation, as this is the process that can be instrumental in allowing materials to stay installed when contamination is not a concern. In many cases, surface water saturation can get addressed with the direct output from centrifugal air movers and electric heaters. By manipulating temperature and airflow, our SERVPRO professionals can increase the productivity of evaporative drying. This immediate burst of warm air can also prevent cool barriers from forming along the saturated surfaces of materials that can slow the drying process.
Removing water from your home after a flood is a vital first step in gaining control of this loss situation. While there are many paths to clearing out excess floodwater, you can trust in the experience and cutting-edge equipment of our SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho team to help.
