Required Tools for Effective Water Mitigation

Successful water mitigation in Kennesaw depends on state-of-the-art water removal and structural drying equipment in the hands of experienced experts. AdvantaClean of Marietta invests in and continuously upgrades an extensive inventory of commercial-grade tools to support our highly qualified Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT). Equipment properly matched to tasks and used by trained and skilled crews saves structures and contents during the crucial water mitigation phase.

Essential Equipment for Liquid Water Mitigation

Water mitigation requires equipment designed to halt the continuing fluid intrusion throughout a damaged property after leaks or storms. Tactics for stopping liquids from flowing and removing standing water for containment and disposal away from your Kennesaw property rely on these tools:

  • Shutoff valves to stop leaks and ruptures in pipes from expelling more water

  • Tarps and boards to prevent additional precipitation from entering through damaged structures 

  • Moisture detection and metering implements that map the locations and quantities of liquid water already on site as well as materials now containing excessive moisture

  • Submersible pumps, including trash pumps, that can handle submerged debris while evacuating fluids outside

  1. Heavy-duty extractors, truck mounted and portable, that suction water from surfaces and floor coverings using hand-operated wands or ride-on and self-propelled roving units that deliver deeper and faster extraction because of the additional weight of the technician

Water Mitigation Through Evaporation

Regardless of how quickly extraction of liquids proceeds, some water absorbs into porous materials and hides in building cavities and multiple-layered structures like floors. To accelerate the evaporation of absorbed or trapped moisture, we employ some or all of the following mitigation equipment intended to vaporize moisture:

  • Structural cavity drying systems using venting or injection of warm, dry air to reduce moisture confined between walls or in other areas behind, under, or over non or semi-porous surfaces  

  • Floor drying strategies using venting or negative pressure floor mats to pull out water and moisture that percolated through cracks or joints to subfloors 

  • Air movers used separately or together, including axial fans with broadly based low-pressure to vent large spaces or focused, low-angle centrifugal force fans to intensify the airflow in a specific area like a wet floor or wall

Dehumidification to Collect Water Vapor

The above vaporization of absorbed water can create excessive humidity inside your property. Mitigation of water vapor through dehumidification is critical. Various types of dehumidifiers capture and store the water vapor for lawful disposal:

  • Condensing dehumidifiers include standard and conventional refrigerant units and low-grain refrigerant models. All condensed water vapor from humid air is blown or drawn across cooled coils. Liquid water drips then into containment pans awaiting drainage away from your property.

  • Desiccant dehumidifiers use chemical substances to attract and absorb the water vapor like a sponge. The heated atmosphere around an integral rotating wheel evaporates the absorbed moisture and vents it outside.

Trust AdvantaClean of Marietta to have the leading-edge water mitigation equipment available to get fluids and vaporized moisture out of your home. Our IICRC-certified crews are trained in water removal best practices and have the experience needed for the best outcomes.
