Maintaining Control during Water Removal in Rock Hill Properties
How Water Damage Evolves Into a Nightmare in Rock Hill Properties
Each story about water removal from a property is as unique as the property, the occupant, and the people managing the incident. Some water intrusions start small from cracked pipes and shingles or malfunctioning appliances but later evolve, causing severe structural deterioration and affecting the living conditions inside the affected houses. Other incidents are drastic from the start, especially when involving significant water volumes or contaminants. One of AdvantaClean of York County and South Charlotte's goals is averting disastrous outcomes when removing water from Rock Hill properties.
How the Water Source Influences Removal Outcomes
If you have discovered a leaking pipe at your property, stopping the source is not the ultimate solution. Therefore, it is good to dig deeper to establish whether high water pressure, corrosion, temperature fluctuations, or age triggered its failure. Old or corroded pipes are prone to wear and tear, leading to multiple leak points, while leaks triggered by high water pressure release significant amounts of water instantaneously. Water removal under such circumstances presents unique challenges.
Removal Steps That Avert Disastrous Outcomes
Water intrusion is better avoided, but when it happens, the next best thing is limiting deterioration in structural materials and valuables like electronics, furniture, and personal belongings within the premises. Extended moisture exposure is the main driving force behind material deterioration during water damage incidents. On the floor, where most of the water collects, materials like carpets, vinyl, cork, and engineered or solid wood develop wide-ranging problems, including warping, cupping, staining, and delamination. Problems can develop in other areas, too, like walls and ceilings on your property.
AdvantaClean of York County and South Charlotte helps counter or prevent these problems by completing different steps during water removal at your premises.
Essential Steps During Water Removal
Applying antimicrobial products
Constant humidity control
Extracting the water leaking into your property is the primary water removal procedure that helps restore normalcy at your property. When you want to avert disastrous outcomes, it matters how the extraction is done. AdvantaClean professionals strive to ensure a speedy and thorough extraction process. Speeding-up removal minimizes contact with materials, reducing the chances of severe deterioration. We use technologies such as wet/dry vacuums, truck-mounted extractors, or even submersible pumps to facilitate fast removal. Being thorough is also essential since leaving moisture within materials or structural areas has a long-term negative impact. Our technicians rely on thermal imaging or penetrative moisture sensors to evaluate how thorough the removal progresses.
Establishing Control during Water Removal
If you view water removal from the perspective of individual processes, like extraction and drying, you might miss out on other important things that happen concurrently. For instance, there is constant evaporation and microbial growth within a property after water intrusion, and you need to control these processes to avoid condensation and mold problems. AdvantaClean professionals use a comprehensive approach that covers these aspects, too. After extracting water, we set up dehumidifiers within your property and apply antimicrobial products on surfaces.
How We Control the Drying Process
Using air movers and dehumidifiers simultaneously for faster evaporation and humidity control
Using drying chambers to regulate the speed and efficiency of drying
Using specialized cavity drying equipment
