Planning Can Expedite Water Removal from Your Cheshire Home

A burst plumbing line can dump inches of water into your house within a short interval. After the initial response to the emergency, such as turning off the mains or fixing the leak, it is crucial to make proper water removal plans to ensure faster resolution of the problem, reduce damages and prevent future problems.

Scoping the Loss Site
Before you start water removal from your Cheshire home, you should scope all affected areas to establish any challenges that might arise later on. Although water may spread uniformly across the house, differences in the types of materials found in different parts of the house can lead to different outcomes. For example, the impact on a carpeted area differs from that of an area with wooden floorboards. Our SERVPRO technicians establish the areas where water might have the most significant impact and prioritize extraction or removal of the material at risk.

Choosing Universal Solutions
The removal process can be accomplished in different ways. Choosing solutions that solve more than one issue helps cut down the time needed to finish the job, among other advantages. For example, using a weighted tool to extract water from a porous surface such as carpeted floors can help eliminate the need to remove the carpet first.  The weight of the tool squeezes water from the material whole the lift mechanism helps remove it.  Our SERVPRO teams have different types of weighted water extractors, including Ride-on HVE Rovers and water claws.

Having a Cleanup Strategy from the Start
Water loss incidents leave properties soiled in different ways, including making dyes in fabrics to run and forming debris from deteriorated materials. Combining cleanup and water removal helps reduce the time needed to resolve the problem. Our SERVPRO technicians make flood cuts to remove wet drywall, insulation, and other debris from the walls. Opening up walls also helps release water that flows into the wall cavities.

Water loss incidents can disrupt everything, but with the right strategy, you can resolve everything fast. Call SERVPRO of Waterbury at (203) 757-5050 to help execute a plan that resolves the incident, “Like it never even happened.”
