Centrifugal Equipment And Injectidry Systems For Flood Damage In Maumelle

Water that enters your property from road overflow or a faulty plumbing system can migrate quickly. The negative result this can have on your possessions, interior structure, and indoor air quality can be severe if there is prolonged exposure to moisture. In the past, customers have returned from a weekend holiday and found their home saturated with floodwaters that have migrated into wall cavities, penetrated subfloors or entered crawlspaces.

Using advanced equipment and proper drying techniques, we have restored flood damage in Maumelle residences to preloss conditions. Primarily, our method of restoration is to encourage evaporation using centrifugal air movers as well as specialized structural cavity drying equipment. SERVPRO can adopt a range of methods to help restore your property quickly, remove moisture, and begin work restoring damages to possessions or furniture.

Creating airflow and increasing surface pressure helps to remove moisture from the affected area. SERVPRO technicians can do this by creating a closed or open system. In an open system, interior air is replaced by dry, outside air. Placing centrifugal air moving equipment in a space that is ventilated by open doors or windows can be an effective method of open system drying. In a closed system, we establish a smaller, controlled drying zone through physical barriers using dehumidifiers to exchange moisture with dry air.

Cavities in the home, such as between walls or floorboards, can be especially challenging to create airflow. SERVPRO uses Injectidry equipment to help establish an airflow inside a cavity and promote evaporation of moisture. We gain access by drilling small holes into the wall allowing access for Injectidry equipment. In some cases, raising the surface temperature of the wall can be beneficial to encouraging natural evaporation.

Ensuring that moisture is thoroughly removed from your property is essential to correcting property damages and can play a vital role in preventing secondary issues like microbial growth. For proper drying methods, contact SERVPRO of Northwest Little Rock at (501) 803-9700 today.
