We Have The Proper Techniques To Restore Your Fort Myers Home After A Water Damage Disaster

Steps that Ensure Balanced Water Removal from Your Fort Myers Property   

Water loss incidents happen very quickly due do issues such as failing pipes or appliances. However, the removal process takes several steps before the property can regain its preloss state.  Carrying out each step correctly, and in time, helps ensure the best outcome. We offer professional water removal services that help Fort Myers property owners avoid common pitfalls. 

Any pools of standing water left in the property after the spill are a cause for worry. Addressing such pools early during water removal from your Fort Myers home is essential because it minimizes your concerns. Doing it faster also has an added advantage because permeation in semi-porous materials is limited.  Fast removal of pooling water is possible with the right resources. For small pools, mops and buckets can do the job faultlessly. If there are vast amounts of water, advanced equipment might be necessary. Our SERVPRO teams have a wide variety of advanced water extractors they can choose from depending on the size of the job, including: 

  • Wet Vacs 
  • Portable Water Extractors 
  • Truck-Mounted Water Extractors 
  • HVE Ride-on Extractors 
  • Water Claws 

In ideal situations, the water damage that spills would pool within reachable areas. However, water loss incidents are rarely ideal, and water finds its way into wall cavities, subfloors, and other hard to reach areas.  Failure to remove such water can lead to problems like mold, wet rot, and even bad odor. To remove such water, you have to locate it first. Our SERVPRO technicians use thermal cameras and other detection tools for that. We then decide whether to do some demolition to facilitate drying or use advanced equipment such as injecti-dry systems and drying mats. 

Removing all traces of liquid water does not solve the entire problem. It is crucial to remove excess wetness in building materials and contents. Unlike the other steps where speed is the key, the drying phase requires a balanced approach. Some materials like wood can be ruined if they dry too fast.  Other problems like condensation can also occur when there is unbalanced drying. Our SERVPRO technicians make calculations and set a drying goal.
