We know that it’s difficult to fathom a disaster, but it’s worth it to note that out on Longboat Key, you’re at a much higher risk of getting water damage in the first place. The ocean isn’t that far from you and storms can come faster than you might expect. But all is not lost! If you act quickly, you can easily solve your water problems on Longboat Key.
We use a variety of tools that can help you, as well. While small amounts of water are fairly easy to remove, large-scale water removal is something that you should be mindful of. While towels, fans, and dehumidifiers can go a long way for you, our extraction equipment is a better choice for you and for your home.
Using Fans And Dehumidifiers
If you use fans and dehumidifiers (which isn’t the recommended course of action), then you’ll be faced with a steep challenge. Drying surfaces (including heavily saturated ones) takes time, and the more time that the water is in the surfaces, the more damage that you’ll be suffering from in Longboat Key.
But, if you’re determined, it can be done. Raising the carpets off the floors, putting the dehumidifiers throughout your home, and starting the fans can begin to raise the water out of the carpets. The mixture of moving air and dry air is conducive to drying, for sure. It will still take many hours (or even days), and it doesn’t remove contaminants from the water, either. It’s a dangerous path to take.
Using Our Services
Now, if you’re interested in a more rapid and comprehensive service, our services are much more powerful. The water that’s coming into the home is most likely seawater—which is black water! It’s not a good situation, and rapid removal is in your best interest.
We use Hydro-X water extractors to pull water from your carpets, for instance. These machines are fantastic devices that pull a lot of water from the carpets quickly, all without ripping them up. It’s a good choice for your carpets if they’re at all salvageable.
Not to mention that we check to make sure that your surfaces are sanitary. It’s one thing to provide the service of water removal, but it’s another thing entirely to make sure that your home is safe to live in, and clean and clear of terrible, dangerous contaminants. That’s why we hope that you call us: we’re willing and ready to help you get back to normal after a water damage incident.
What About After?
It’s one thing to say that we’ll do your water removal in Longboat Key, but it’s another entirely to say that we can ensure that your home remains without water damage for a long time. We come in after the work’s done and keep monitoring the water using state of the art moisture meters to ensure that your house is dry and safe. That’s just one of the big parts.
If there’s still water in your home, we’ll continue to work on your home until the water’s gone. That’s our promise: your house will be dry after we’re done working on it.
