Is It Important for Fast Extraction to Remove Water Damage from My San Jose Home?
SERVPRO's Water Removal Equipment Helps Our Neighbors in San Jose
Appliances have become instrumental for convenient living for San Jose homeowners, but these machines are not impervious to failures or malfunctions. A common concern with water-fed appliances like your washing machine, dishwasher, and other similar units are the gaskets and seals that hold water in or prevent leaks at the connections with the water supply. While often this is little more than a single piece of rubber, the erosion of this component could very quickly flood the immediate area around the appliance should it cause a disconnection or substantial leak.
Are Shut-Off Valves Important to Help Prevent Water Damage?
While most appliances have an independent shutoff valve to prevent further flow onto the floor of your San Jose home making water damage, preventing significant, that is rarely before the incident has spread enough to require immediate water removal services. From the time that this disaster strikes, you should reach out to our SERVPRO professionals immediately. Our highly-trained technicians have fast extraction equipment that can work to protect flooring materials and other structural elements exposed to the pooling water.
- The first step once our technicians arrive at your home is to get our team working right away--
- Removing the excess water throughout the damaged areas
- We have extractor trucks and gas-powered pumps for substantial water loss incidents
- Our portable sump pumps and other specialized equipment can prove sufficient for removing both pools of water and the absorbed water in saturated materials like your carpeting
Restoring your hardwood flooring in the kitchen or laundry area of your home is an intricate task for our SERVPRO team. We have tools like our air movers and injecti-dry system to begin pulling moisture from the exposed flooring, but this work needs to get regularly monitored to manage the moisture content in the wood. This type of flooring can become overly dry, causing as much water damage as over-saturation would.
While there are many steps to restoring your home after a water loss incident from one of the appliances, water removal, and the appropriate mitigation work must come first. Our SERVPRO of Campbell rapid response team is available to help 24/7 by calling (408) 371-4001.
