Rapid Professional Water Removal in Bristol Minimizes Mold Damage Risk

Bristol homeowners who fail to arrange for fast mitigation and remediation after a water loss can be in for distressing secondary damage. The window of time to avoid mold growth is distressingly short -- spores can absorb moisture and begin multiplying within 24 to 48 hours. Engaging the services of our professional Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) gives you an excellent chance of extracting water and drying out moisture before a mold infestation takes hold.

Efficient Extraction

When a plumbing or appliance mishap necessitates water removal in Bristol, our initial focus is selecting the equipment and methods that promise fast and thorough extraction. As our project manager evaluates the extent of the water migration from the initial intrusion, crew members begin emergency measures.

If the water is deeper than two inches, gas-powered submersible pumps are positioned to off-load water through hosing out of the structure.

As the water level lowers, we add wanded extractors, suctioning liquid from surfaces.

Our truck-mounted models feature high capacity and on-vehicle generators. Portable extractors are essential as well, permitting our technicians to move freely into confined spaces and suction water from recessed areas.

Mapping Moisture Migration

Removing visible water damage is only phase one of our restoration project. SERVPRO crew leads coordinate moisture detection and measurement using sensitivity probes to define the reach of the water loss. Water moves away from the original leak or accident, percolating into subflooring and seeping through crevices and porous building materials to take up residence in obscured cavities.

Structural Drying Minimizes Mold Risk

Permitting hidden caches of water or moisture in saturated structural components to linger is sure to fuel a mold outbreak. Mold spores are always present, awaiting a bit of water, a day or two of dwell time, and organic matter for nourishment. Many conventional building materials provide sustenance for the microbes when wet, including drywall, wood framing and subsurfaces, some types of insulation, and hardwood floors and trim. The SERVPRO team uses the moisture data collected to release trapped water and establish drying goals for various structural components. We position air movers to accelerate the evaporation of water from structures. Temperature adaptations and removal of water vapor help strike a balance needed to dry out your home, accomplished with heaters and dehumidifiers.

Mold Remediation Services

As we complete the water removal project, including structural drying, SERVPRO employees are vigilant in searching for any signs of mold growth. If we find mold, our skilled remediation specialists devise an abatement plan to contain and remove the active colonies, finishing with disinfection using EPA-registered antimicrobials.

Full-spectrum water removal, drying, and mold remediation services provide successful results for the customers of SERVPRO of Bristol. Call (860) 582-3330 to schedule an evaluation of the best practices needed to resolve your water loss.
