Water Removal in Knoxville
SERVPRO Technicians Arrive Equipped to Eliminate Excess Water From Your Home
Homes in Knoxville have seen torrential rains this year. We saw record-breaking totals in the spring, to heavy rainfalls experienced in late summer and fall, after hurricanes made landfall in the gulf and continued dropping precipitation throughout the Tennessee Valley. When the sheer volume of rainfall threatens to inundate your home, you need a reliable water removal service.
Storm after storm soaked the ground around your home this spring, summer, and fall. Eventually, moisture seeped into the lowest levels of your dwelling. Water removal in Knoxville is a hard task for a homeowner to complete without professional help. We offer residents powerful equipment and skilled technicians to deal with the devastation of standing water in their interiors.
Water is not a benign substance when it fills up spaces in your home. Many building materials begin a devastating deterioration cycle after a soaking. Wood swells, absorbing the water and becoming distorted in shape. Metal rusts and pressed wood and paper products, commonly used as walls, ceilings, and trim, literally dissolve. As the structure of the building materials changes, they weaken and become unable to performs the jobs expected of them. Supporting walls bend, walls crumble, and flooring sags, warps, and buckles.
SERVPRO technicians are highly trained in the skill sets needed to remove all traces of excess water to restore the strength and integrity of waterlogged building materials. We start with a straightforward process -- pumping and extracting the standing water out of all the spaces in your home. Our pumps work even underwater, and high-efficiency extractors pull water out of carpeting, corners, and hidden recesses.
Expect our work crews to monitor moisture levels and use advanced scanning technology to locate water hiding behind walls and in the cells of cinder block foundations. All water must evacuate, or your home is at risk of secondary damage such as microbial growth. Once the standing and trapped water is removed, we move on to drying residual moisture out of the structure and contents of your home. Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers positioned throughout the flooded area continue to reduce moisture levels until the targets determined by our technicians are met.
