SERVPRO® Ensures Proper Water Removal from Affected Areas

Water damage in Merrimack properties is a common and often devastating occurrence that can result from various sources. When faced with such a problem, property owners may be tempted to handle it themselves to save money. However, in many cases, effectively managing water damage requires professional resources. Professionals, such as SERVPRO, bring a wealth of knowledge and experience. We can assess the level of damage, identify hidden issues, and develop a comprehensive restoration plan.

A major significant risk associated with water damage in Merrimack is microbial growth. Mold starts to grow within 24-48 hours after water exposure. We understand the importance of swift action to prevent mold proliferation. Our crews have the training to thoroughly dry and disinfect affected areas, reducing the risk of mold infestations. Effective water removal is crucial to limit further damage and microbial growth.

Essential resources and tools for water removal

  • Submersible pumps
  • Wet/Dry Vacuums
  • Squeegees and mops
  • Moisture detection equipment

A submersible pump can rapidly extract large volumes of standing water from flooded areas. It can efficiently pump out water from a basement, crawl space, or other submerged spaces and discharge it away from the affected area.

Thermal imaging cameras are used during the assessment and inspection phase of the water damage restoration. They help us locate hidden moisture pockets within building materials, even if the water is invisible to the naked eye. This allows for targeted drying efforts and prevents secondary damage.

Thorough Drying Is Important 

Ensuring all affected areas are thoroughly dried is crucial. Dehumidifiers help reduce humidity levels in the affected area, aiding in drying and preventing mold growth. Our teams make calculations to determine the correct size and capacity of the dehumidifier for the specific location. Overloading a dehumidifier with excess moisture can reduce its effectiveness.

Different kinds of dehumidifiers

  • Conventional refrigerants
  • Low grain refrigerants
  • Desiccants
