SERVPRO Is Well Equipped for Water Removal in Brookline

Before water leaks into your Brookline premises, you may not consider removal a complicated process. Once the incident occurs, you must figure out how to scoop away gallons of water and dry, vast wet areas within a limited period. Seeking professional assistance can help you manage water removal conveniently.

The main determinant of the resources needed for water removal from your Brookline premises is the amount spilled. The materials affected may also have an impact. In case there is a significant percentage of porous materials like upholstery and carpets affected by the spill, removal is more challenging compared to a case where water spreads over tiled surfaces.

Necessary water removal equipment

  • Pumps
  • Vacuum extractors
  • Humidity control

Depending on the prevalent conditions, various pumps, including submersible and high-speed varieties, can help evacuate water from a structure. A pump with sufficient head capacity is essential for a depressed structure section, such as a parking garage. High-speed pumps handle such removal conveniently. In most cases, vacuum extractors are sufficient since the standing water is not deep enough to necessitate a pump. Our SERVPRO teams are equipped with portable and truck-mounted extractors to facilitate quick removal.

The moisture absorbed by materials

A significant percentage of the water that leaks into your premises escapes into porous and semi-porous materials. Although removing high volumes of stagnant water may seem daunting, it pales compared to the effort needed to dry wet materials. Extraction only requires sufficient vacuum lift but drying wet materials in good time requires manipulation of several factors simultaneously.

Main factors to manipulate

  • Air movements 
  • Air temperature
  • Humidity levels

Drying is only possible if there is sustained evaporation. Unfortunately, as the moisture evaporates from wet materials into the air, humidity levels increase, and once the air is saturated, drying stops. Supplying a steady stream of dry air across damp surfaces facilitates constant removal of the absorbed water. Our SERVPRO teams set up several units of air movers and dehumidifiers for sustained drying.
