SERVPRO’s Fast Service and Experienced Crew Can Save Your Cheshire Home from Flood Damage

Restoration of a flood-damaged home is a complicated job that requires experience, proper equipment, and technical know-how. Hiring professional restorers from SERVPRO can help you get the flood damage to your Cheshire home under control before it can cause any major issues. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster and can begin the restoration process within a matter of hours. 

The priority of SERVPRO technicians during the flood restoration of your Cheshire home is to pump out any standing water on the property. Floodwater is often contaminated and must be removed as quickly as possible to prevent secondary damage such as mold. There are two primary methods of water removal from your property during flood restoration- extraction and evaporation. If there is a lot of accumulated water, extraction using truck-mounted extractors is the preferred way. SERVPRO techs can remove about 100 gallons of water per hour using heavy-duty truck-mounted extractors. Once the excess water is extracted from the property, the next thing is to dry the structure. 

How do SERVPRO Techs Speed up the Drying Process During Water Cleanup from your flooded Cheshire Home?  

Several factors determine whether water is going to evaporate from a material-

  • The temperature of the material
  • Amount of water in the material
  • The humidity of the air above the wet surface

SERVPRO techs speed up the drying process by modulating two of the above three factors. Increasing the temperature of the material and lowering the vapor pressure of the material above the surface is the key to speed up the drying process. SERVPRO techs use dehumidifiers, heaters, and air movers to achieve this.
