Water Removal Services

Once SERVPRO locates the absorbed and trapped water, we employ strategies to draw lingering moisture out of the hardwood. Some or all of the following tools and methods help us restore water damaged wood to normal moisture readings:

  • Truck-mounted or portable extractors suction away standing water.
  • Floor drying mats affixed tightly according to the assessment’s moisture mapping use negative air pressure to pull water from several floor layers.
  • Air movers speed drying, directed upward from the level below the wet floor or under selected strips or planks temporarily loosened and raised.
  • Heaters and dehumidifiers collaborate,  creating a warm, dry atmosphere conducive to rapid evaporation of the water damaging the hardwood.
