Spokane Property Owners Turn to SERVPRO for Water Removal and Drying

SERVPRO technicians know during water cleanup in Spokane homes, it is essential to find the migration path of the water to ensure that nothing is left. They use state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment to locate water in subflooring and within the floor joists between floors.
During any type of water loss, mold is always a threat. The technicians have extensive training in the restoration of all kinds of damage, and they also know the warning signs and how to inhibit mold from even becoming an issue. Their attention to detail during water extraction and drying helps restore homes to their preloss condition quickly.
Fast Extraction is Key
When SERVPRO technicians work on a water loss that affects more than one story in a home, they scope the property to find all areas of elevated moisture and get to work with their portable pumps to extract as much water as possible. They also perform drainage techniques as needed, such as the drilling of weep holes in ceilings or baseboards to allow both better drainage and airflow for drying. If sheetrock wicked too much moisture, the technicians cleanly cut it away to avert further damage.
Techniques for Complete Drying
After a water loss, drying a room with air movers and dehumidifiers seems simple enough. However, behind baseboards, wall cavities, and floor joists all present problems. That is why SERVPRO technicians have specialized drying equipment for forcing air into tight spaces. Drying mats assist with pushing warm, dry air into a wet subfloor and floor joists while the Injecti-Dry system works well for drying wall cavities.
