Essential Equipment for Water Cleanup in the Bronx

The quantity of water flowing and hiding in recesses of your home in the Bronx after a pipe breaks or an appliance malfunctions can be substantial. If the water loss occurs while you are at work or away for a weekend, the quantity that needs removal can be thousands of gallons. Professional water damage technicians use a range of detection, extraction, and drying equipment, continually monitoring to remove water and return moisture levels to preloss levels.

Emergency Water Removal Equipment

As the crew chief completes the comprehensive assessment, our crew starts water cleanup in your Bronx triplex. To achieve efficient extraction and avoid encountering electrical hazards when the water is deeper than two inches, we use gas-powered submersible pumps, sending the water directly to a treated sewer line. Truck-mounted extractors also bypass the need for residential electricity, using onboard generators to remove substantial amounts of water with powerful suction, the fluids moved into and stored in tanks for lawful disposal if contamination is a concern.

Detection and Moisture Measurement Equipment

To plan for adequate water cleanup, designated crew members complete use water detectors to define the perimeters of the water incursion. SERVPRO’s goal is to return structural components to their normal moisture levels, so we go beyond detection to metering, using specialized tools to sample. These moisture meters provide data for both the water-soaked structure and comparison readings for similar materials in unaffected areas of our home.

Fine-Tuned and Speciality Extraction Equipment

Once SERVPRO management determines the affected space can safely reconnect power, our technicians might change to portable extractors. The benefits of these units include the ability to move further into your home, including reaching confined areas where water seeped behind building materials into cavities and recesses. If trapped water damage is impossible to reach even with a portable extractor, controlled demolition techniques that drill or cut through building materials permit access for systems that use negative air pressure (suction) directed through attachable mats and hoses to pull out the water.

Drying Goals and Equipment

Using the data obtained from moisture meters and detectors, SERVPRO sets drying goals for the affected areas. We set up perimeters of air movers and heaters to accelerate the evaporation of water from the soaked materials. Water vapor capture by refrigerant or desiccant dehumidifiers then proceeds. Continuous monitoring ensures we are making progress needed to complete water cleanup, “Like it never even happened.”

The operation of appropriately matched equipment accomplishes water cleanup rapidly after a plumbing or appliance emergency. SERVPRO of South Bronx delivers expert assessment, planning, and implementation of needed services as soon as practicable after you call (347) 590-9902.
