Our Fast Water Removal Process Reduces Drying Time

There are countless ways that a home in Fort Lee can spring a leak inside. It could be a broken pipe, a water line that shook loose from a dancing washing machine, or a dishwasher overflowing because of the wrong detergent. If this happens to your family, you need an experienced water removal team.

SERVPRO’s specialists have experience in the various materials used to build houses in Fort Lee, making rapid water removal tasks possible. After pumping out standing water, additional tasks are involved in getting your home “Like it never even happened.”

Here are some of the different flooring types commonly found within area homes, followed by explanations of how we remove traces of water from each:

  • Wood flooring,
  • Tile over a concrete slab, and
  • Carpet over wooden underlay.

Our team responds to remove the water from not only on top of the wood planks but also underneath them and within them. We do this with our InjectiDry system’s floor mats, which combine heat and suction to pull moisture from the area covered.

The glue that adheres tile to concrete slab disintegrates if saturated in water, leaving your floor in pieces. We save what tiles we can and then find tiles to replace those lost. Air movers force air through the room, whisking moisture out of the pores in the concrete. When dry, we can reposition the tiles, leaving you with a beautiful floor again.

When carpet gets soaked, we often dry the carpet and the underlay in one step by a process called “floating’ the carpet. During this, we detach part of the carpet to force warm, dry air inside the newly made space. As soon as the carpeting and underlay register within normal limits for moisture content, our carpet technicians reattach the carpet and ensure no additional stretching is necessary.
