Water Extraction Services in Montrose

Posted by on August 12, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off

In an area like Montrose, California, there are a limited number of things that could require the contracting of a water extraction service. Water extraction services would be utilized any time a large amount of water (or a small but sustained amount of water) are entering an area of either a home or a business which cannot be easily dealt with. In Montrose, this can only happen due to a couple of events. The area does not see a great deal of rain, though roof leaks are a possibility. Flooding in this area is unlikely as well. This leaves one primary reason why water extraction would be necessary: broken pipes or water mains.

 

Here are a few things to look for when you are in need of water extraction services:

  • Quick and responsive service. Water cannot be allowed to stand for long or the damage will spread and compound upon itself.
  • The right equipment: including a powerful vacuum, dehumidifiers, and dryers.
  • Staff should be certified and trained. The IICRC is a training organization that provides certifications for both water extraction companies and carpet cleaning companies.
  • Assessment should include looking for structural damage, identification of the causes of the water, and examination for potential areas of mold growth.

Water extraction companies are often combined with carpet and floor cleaning companies due to the similarities of their work. The problem with this, though, is that a company that specializes in one may not specialize in the other. Many carpet and floor cleaning companies do not have the necessary equipment (outside of a powerful vacuum and a pump) to handle water extraction. Waterworks 911 is a company that specializes in the extraction of water in Montrose and the surrounding areas. Finding the right company makes all the difference in cases of water extraction, particularly when insurance concerns are right around the corner.

If you don’t take care of water extraction right away you may run into the risk of mold. For mold remediation in Montrose or bacterial removal in Montrose and surrounding cities, environmental911 is the company to call!
