SERVPRO Skills and Water Restoration in Cary

Damage readily happens when pipes burst or house appliances malfunction. Repairs can be very costly and time-consuming. Mitigation can help limit the negative effects water intrusion triggers. However, completing water mitigation at your Cary home can be as challenging as doing repairs if the approach is inappropriate.

The most critical aspect of water mitigation in Cary properties is limiting the level of moisture contact with materials. Therefore, no matter how minor, any action qualifies as mitigation if it inhibits such exposure. SERVPRO focuses on strategies like repositioning materials, removing water, and manipulating airflow.

Some specific actions include:

  • Removing wet fabrics
  • Mopping and blotting
  • Tenting accessories like cushions
  • SERVPRO cleaning products

Even though fabrics are resilient against water damage since they dry fast, they can develop long-term issues if no action is taken after water intrusion. Stubborn or permanent staining is common because of running dyes or rust. Steps separating different fabrics, such as lifting drapes from carpeted areas or removing furniture standing on carpeted surfaces, are a viable defense against staining. Our SERVPRO technicians remove area rugs and pull up wet carpets where necessary.

Importance of Water Removal

Removing any water stagnating in the property helps limit the level of deterioration for exposed materials. It also minimizes moisture migration to other house parts initially unaffected by the leak.

Water removal methods include:

  • Extraction with wet vacuums
  • Wiping surfaces
  • Blowing dry air over wet areas

The chosen method depends on many factors, including the immediate mitigation goals, the amount of water involved, and the type of materials affected. An extractive process is essential for significant water volumes stagnating on surfaces, especially if the surface is porous. Carpeted floors require deep extraction equipment. On the other hand, you can wipe hard floor surfaces to dry. Our SERVPRO technicians also use air movers to boost water removal through evaporation.
