SERVPRO - Water Removal Actions For Pittsboro Homes

While pictures of Pittsboro surrounded by a flood make good news, area homes usually suffer water dropping into their residences from more mundane sources like a split water line leading into a washing machine or a poorly insulated inlet pipe that cracked in the winter weather.
 
Pittsboro water removal needs accomplishing quickly and efficiently to eliminate the effects of flooding in a Pittsboro home. SERVPRO restoration teams have years of experience and training in Central North Carolina to accomplish that.
 
Drawing outstanding water is our first step. If the water is more than two inches deep, our technicians begin with commercial grade pumps that can remove hundreds of gallons per day, depending on the size of the pump required for the job.
 
After the pumps, or in cases where the water is about two inches deep or less, team members begin with smaller extraction wands. They can adjust these devices to quickly remove water off floors and out of carpets without harming the surface of either. If the power is out in the home, our teams can bring generators to provide power 24/7 until they complete the task.
 
Now, SERVPRO specialists examine the sub-flooring and crawlspaces. If they find any standing water, team members lift several floorboards off the framing or drill spots normally under furniture or behind floor trim to remove it. Personnel uses air movers with hoses to force warm, dry air into these cavities to speed up the evaporation process. When there is no more visible water, they use moisture meters to check the space and ensure the air moisture content is normal.
 
Team leaders also use thermal hygrometers to check the humidity levels in each room. If the levels test over 40 percent, specialists set up dehumidifiers to draw water from the air; up to 20 gallons over 24 hours where the humidity is very high. Lowering the humidity not only provides a more comfortable environment but also reduces the risk of mold spores expanding and growing in areas like the bathroom or laundry rooms.
 
These first actions help our SERVPRO of Lee & South Chatham Counties teams return your home to livable condition after water forces you out. Our goal is to provide a dry, safe residence as quickly as possible. If you need us, call (919) 533-6776 today.
