SERVPRO Wants To Help You Restore Your San Jose Home
Article title: Water Removal Experts In San Jose Talk About Dehumidification Equipment
If a pipe breaks inside your San Jose home, hundreds of gallons can pour inside your structure within hours. If water removal does not get conducted promptly by a professional company such as SERVPRO, then other secondary problems could result. Once items even in a small area inside your house get wet, humidity levels inside your entire building can take a large increase. Once the relative humidity levels inside your house rise, drywall, and other materials can start to retain moisture. When humidity and moisture levels rise inside a home conducting water removal becomes essential to preventing mold growth.
When arriving at an emergency call, our SERVPRO technicians start by securing the structure. After we make sure the work area is safe for you and our crew, we begin water removal inside your San Jose residence. The first part of the restoration phase is to remove the standing water and other moisture. If the standing water is deeper than two inches, we use a submersible pump to suck up the water and put it into a sewage drain. Afterward, we use heavy-duty extractors to pull the majority of the moisture out of the carpet and upholstery.
After we pull out as much moisture as we possibly can with our extraction equipment, we remove the rest of the moisture using drying equipment. We place air movers around the affected area so that air gets pushed in a counterclockwise motion. We then set up a dehumidifier in the center of the air movers that pulls moisture evaporated from the wet materials out of the air.
Refrigerant dehumidification systems run the wet air past cold metal coils. The water then condenses when it reaches lower temperatures and gets drained out in liquid form. The warm, dry air then gets used in the air circulation caused by the air movers. Desiccant dehumidifiers push air across a silica gel that absorbs moisture. If you ever need assistance after problems with excessive humidity, call SERVPRO of Campbell at (408) 371-4001 seven days a week.
