Reversing Water Damage in Everett 

There are numerous stages of restoration from water damage. When SERVPRO works on a water damaging situation, the technicians can use portable vacs and industrial pumps to quickly remove the water, which is just the beginning.

Another essential part of water cleanup in Everett properties is scoping the premises. Using advanced moisture detection equipment, technicians "see" areas of excessive moisture and take the appropriate action, whether drilling weep holes for drainage or controlled demolition to remove water-damaged sheetrock to allow for greater airflow.

Professional Water Extraction Equipment 

The type of equipment used during water loss mitigation makes a difference in the outcome. Ordinary household wet/dry vacs do not possess the suction to pull embedded water from the structure and contents. SERVPRO technicians use a combination of different kinds of water removal equipment and related attachments for specific applications, such as weighted extractor heads for pushing the water out of carpet and padding.

Complete Drying

Much like consumer equipment pales compared to industrial water extraction equipment, the same goes for household fans versus centrifugal air movers. The air movers blow with such force they cause embedded moisture to rise, where the chosen method of dehumidification captures and ports it away. Equipment specially designed to direct airflow within floor joists or wall cavities assists in eradicating moisture in hard-to-reach areas. Technicians carefully set drying goals to ensure ambient humidity levels are well below the sustainable levels for mold spore germination or spreading. SERVPRO technicians follow the IICRC Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification best practices and guidelines.

Thorough Cleaning

Water extraction and drying of the property go a long way toward halting the foul odors water leaves behind. Hand cleaning with specialized formulas such as SERVPRO's own Orange Plus kills odor-causing bacteria and has the light scent of orange. In cases where technicians find mold growth, they carefully dry and remove it. The application of an antimicrobial sealer is standard to inhibit the return of mold and the reestablishment of colonies.
