Drying your Home Quickly after Water Intrusion is Vital to Avoid Excessive Damage. SERVPRO has Leading Drying Equipment and Expertise for Augusta Residents

Residential properties come in all shapes and sizes. When water intrudes into a residential property, technicians must be flexible in dealing with the home's unique interior architecture. This flexibility is necessary to overcome the materials, fittings, and construction in the house that can vary from job to job. SERVPRO technicians are trained in the principles of restoration that allow them to adapt to challenges quickly.

Performing water restoration in Augusta is full of challenges. One of the main pieces of equipment used is a water extractor which combines a centrifugal vacuum, heating element, and power to remove excess water. These are often fitted with tools to aid in the extraction process. Extraction tools could include stationary devices which allow a technician to remove water from thick carpets quickly by compressing them or self-propelled extraction tools which run forward and backward across a floor allowing technicians to focus on other areas while extracting.

  • Carpet wands are frequently used to extract water from fitted carpets and can often dry the pad beneath.
  • Self-propelled extraction units are often weighted, allowing technicians to compress rugs and remove more moisture across larger spaces.
  • Stationary tools use holes at the base of the fitting to pull water through 200 square inches at a time.
