SERVPRO's Lineup of Water Removal Tools in Westwood
Many Critical Steps are Followed for Proper Water Removal
Nothing spoils the atmosphere of an eatery like water damage, which, if left untreated, can cause warping in materials, create pungent odors, and drive away customers. This water damage can originate from something as seemingly benign as a spilled pot, or as violently apparent as a large flood. Regardless, fast water removal is critical for a business with regular customers, which is why SERVPRO carries a wide array of tools and techniques for removing water of any volume as fast as possible.
Standing Water Extraction
The heaviest commercial water removal from Westwood restaurants comes in the form of standing water extraction. Usually, the result of a heavy flood, standing water is a time-critical factor that can cause damage in massive proportions if not quickly and properly attended to. SERVPRO uses water extractors, a type of motorized pump designed specifically for the task, to remove these volumes of water quickly and efficiently from the building containing them. Depending on the job, we will either use lighter portable extractors to reach into back rooms and provide greater mobility, or heavy truck-mounted pumps for when time is most critical and volumes are the highest.
The next tool in our line of water-removing machines is the air mover. Air movers can be thought of as extremely powerful fans, although they are different from fans in that they are designed to move large volumes of air at intense speeds, with a definite direction, instead of simply blowing air in a general area. These are set up in careful arrangement to whisk water droplets away from surfaces and materials in their path, even the deepest and most troublesome soaks.
As a final step to most water removal operations, we bring in heavy dehumidifiers to suck any remaining airborne water out and leave the room dry. Without this step, high levels of humidity can cause long-term damage to the business, especially to sensitive metal kitchen equipment.
