When Snow Melts and Creates Water Damage, SERVPRO Will Be There to Help!
Rely on the Professionals for End of Winter Water Removal in Coon Rapids
Snowfall records shattered over the past couple of months, and intense cold retained most of the snowpack in Coon Rapids. As the sun swings higher in the sky, days lengthen, and temperatures rise the meltwater might find its way into your home. When the ground is still frozen, and ice and snow buildup hugs your foundation, you can see early spring flooding into your basement or walkout living area.
An active approach to water removal in Coon Rapids is necessary when over two feet of snow melts rapidly and cannot be absorbed. Waiting for the water to exit on its own into the floor drains risks deterioration of many structural components and increases the possibility of mold growth. Trying to remove the icy water as a DIY project is unrealistic as household wet/dry vacs, mops, and buckets cannot get the water out fast enough.
SERVPRO’s team is ready to begin removing unwanted water immediately after we complete an assessment. Our service vehicles contain the pumps and wanded extractors needed to rid your home of standing water fast. Our IICRC-trained technicians use thermal scanning and moisture meters to locate any hidden water in cinder block cells or behind other structural components. The release of this water might need holes drilled in mortar joints, top-down extraction with extensions, or flood cuts for access.
Once we remove the majority of the water, the focus turns to structural drying. SERVPRO trucks roll out the air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers that pull moisture out of porous materials as vapor. That vapor is condensed or absorbed by evaporative or desiccant dehumidifiers to remove it permanently from your dwelling. Our employees gauge the achievement of drying goals by periodically measuring moisture levels, comparing them to normal readings in non-affected areas of the house.
Previously wet areas receive antimicrobial treatment with EPA-registered agents. SERVPRO takes this step to ensure the inhibition of potential mold growth.
