How to Best Deal With Water Cleanup in Andover

Plumbing mishaps can setback any household. They cause an interruption to your daily routine on top of being an extra expense. Without cleaning up after a water leak thoroughly, the homeowner may face secondary damage such as mold infestations or having to remove carpet from within the home. It is essential, even with non-contaminated water, to deal with it appropriately.

If you have to grapple with a water cleanup in your Andover home, then the trained professional at SERVPRO can help you. No matter the amount of water you are dealing with, we are available to assist you with the cleanup. Time is of the essence when it comes to water damage. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

The most important part of cleaning up after a water leak is drying the affected areas. Restoring the humidity levels and removing all the excess moisture within the home means that there can be less to repair in the long run. Successful drying is comprised of four essential factors: proper extraction, humidity, temperature, and air movement. SERVPRO technicians extract water using a portable high powered extractor, while the other three elements work together to ensure proper drying.

When thinking about drying after a water leak, it is essential to understand that "wet goes to dry." Water vapors move from wet areas within the structure to drier materials, and damp air goes to more dehydrated materials. Likewise, dry air absorbs moisture from wet surfaces, and dry surfaces absorb moisture from damp air. To ensure the proper amount of dry air within the home, SERVPRO technicians place industrial-strength dehumidifiers around the structure that work in conjunction with air movers to dry impacted areas.

During the process, the SERVPRO team checks the temperature and relative humidity in the treatment area, inside an unaffected area, outside the home, and the air that is coming out of the dehumidifier. This is to ensure that relative humidity (RH) levels are brought down to below 60 percent and close to preloss condition. It is crucial to achieving equilibrium with moisture and humidity levels; over-drying can create other problems such as warping of wood flooring.

The team at SERVPRO understands drying and cleanup procedures while applying their knowledge to your specific home and situation. Contact SERVPRO of Coon Rapids / Central Anoka County at (763) 712-9712. Our goal is to make it "Like it never even happened."
