Using Wands to Remove Water from Miami Homes
Your Home’s Water Damage Need’s the Proper Equipment for the Best Restoration Results
There are many tools and devices that our SERVPRO professionals regularly use to recover Miami homes after disasters like water and fire losses. As damaging as migrating water can be, using some of these efficient machines and attachments to slow or stop the movement of this water can be instrumental in protecting property and preventing further losses. Wands are an excellent example of these attachments that can play a significant role in water removal and moisture containment.
Surface water damage in Miami homes can often be what homeowners fixate on the most when they think of recovering their property after a water loss emergency. As destructive as moisture on this top layer of flooring material might be, there are even more significant concerns when absorption happens into carpeting and padding underneath it. The right tool used in these circumstances can help to protect against greater property damages like the deterioration of subflooring and support elements when migrating moisture absorbs even deeper.
With hardwood flooring and tile, our SERVPRO team must work to remove surface moisture before worsening conditions can develop. In many situations, attaching a squeegee wand to a wet vacuum can remove the bulk of standing water concerns. These devices can funnel collected water to the onboard vacuum portion for removal.
Carpet wands are another helpful attachment that our team can use to remove moisture concerns from damaged materials. Carpeting can quickly absorb water, and these wands can work to pull moisture from both the top layer and padding but are especially useful when it gets decided to remove the padding altogether and replace it.
Weighted Extraction Tools
Ride-on equipment and stationary weighted tools can both also be effective on carpeted surfaces. These units press the carpet and padding against the subflooring material, forcing moisture to the surface for collection by an onboard vacuum.
All of these devices and tools can play an active role in the restoration of your home after a water loss incident. Our SERVPRO of South Miami team can help you make it “Like it never even happened,” by calling (305) 269-8900.
