Removing Water Damage from Pottsville Homes and Businesses

Spills, leaks, breaks, loose hoses, and countless other reasons can be the cause and triggers for substantial and destructive water emergencies. Because this is the most frequent restoration request of our field technicians, it is the area we are most stocked and prepared to face at any moment. Our roster of experts has experience and training to manage pressing concerns like:

  • Extraction
  • Drying
  • Content Cleaning
  • Repairs

A Fast Response for Water Damage

Trusted technicians must act upon every water damage incident in Pottsville properties quickly and deliberately. Situations with water continually worsen without focused mitigative steps. There is a finite timeline to protect many surfaces impacted by water exposure, and after this threshold, greater reconstruction services will be necessary. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. Our SERVPRO Green Fleet is ready to mobilize 24/7 with mitigation tools to help your residence.

Eliminating Standing Water

Immediate action is needed when any pooling water exists in your home. This occurrence is not always able to be remedied with toweling and mopping. Instead, we approach these damaging effects with various extraction devices specifically designed to manage standing water concerns.

  • Pumps – Pumps manage the greatest volumes of standing water. Eliminating this pooling can involve electric submersible pumps, trash pumps, or even more powerful engine-driven options. 
  • Vacuums – Vacuums are a versatile solution for removing shallow standing water concerns or water damage in less accessible areas of the residence. 
  • Specialty Equipment – Beyond pumps and vacuums, particular extraction approaches are used chiefly for carpeted flooring like wands and weighted extractors.

Drying Up Water 

Drying is the heart of every water restoration project. Without successful drying and evaporation, moisture persists, and secondary damages can occur. The process involves a combination of equipment from our supply that can effectively remove surface moisture and humidity when placed appropriately and with the ideal frequency.

  • Air Movers - These small units blast moist surfaces with dry air to promote even, fast evaporation. Machines include low-profile, axial, and centrifugal varieties.
  • Dehumidification - These units are vital in removing humidity and moisture content from the environment. Primary machines in this effort eliminate water through absorption and condensation.
  • Portable Heating - Increasing the heat in work areas improves the efficacy of cleaning processes and evaporation. Portable electric heaters are the preferred method to increase the temperature in drying zones.
  • Mat Drying - Hardwood and engineered flooring materials can use drying mats to remove trapped water through capillary suction. These can get placed after surface water has been addressed with extraction units.

Large Loss Capable Professionals

An advantage of SERVPRO's expertise, roster, and supply of cutting-edge equipment is our abilities with large loss scenarios. Commercial properties are plentiful in Pottsville, so having the appropriate equipment and response to these water damage emergencies ensures that doors do not close permanently. We work with the property owner to determine a set timeline and drying goals to get the business up and running as soon as possible.

Repairs Where You Need Them

A contractor license allows us to complete several types of repairs and reconstruction services for your home and business following damage events. Every phase of the recovery process features some build-back service, from removing the bulk materials damaged by water to restoring service to the house by repairing the compromised pipe. Some of the measures that help include:

  • Controlled Demolition
  • Build-Back Services
  • Plumbing Repairs

SERVPRO professionals should quickly deal with water damage in Pottsville properties to prevent irreparable harm to the structure. Our SERVPRO of Pottsville team is standing by 24/7 to help when you need it at (570) 622-8991.
