Thomson Property Owners Benefit from the Large Arsenal of SERVPRO Restoration Equipment
Why SERVPRO Includes Air Scrubbers as Part of Our Water Damage Mitigation Equipment in Thomson
Leaky pipe joints and connections, appliances with old fittings, forgotten sinks that overflowed, and many other situations can leave damp areas inside your home in Thomson. During mitigation and restoration work, we use several different types of equipment that target specific features of your property, including the contents.
The increased presence of newly-activated microbes is why SERVPRO uses air scrubbers while mitigating and restoring homes in Thomson suffering from water damage. In addition to cleaning the air of these organic contaminants, the removal of ruined materials, carpets, and other activities can cause the amount of dust to increase inside your residence. This increase of indoor pollutants continues during the restoration process while our building services crew finishes the final touches to your home.
A significant portion of the dust created during mitigation comes from cutting materials away from their installation site and packaging them for easy removal. The tearing out of drywall means your home's air ends up with paper dust from the facing and backing sheets, as well as the gypsum itself. Paint dust can also become airborne. Sanding dried joint compound before painting also produces dust.
When our activities are likely to produce airborne debris, we also use vacuums equipped with HEPA filters to capture the particles before they degrade the indoor air quality. Carpets, especially those with water damage, can throw a large amount of dust, mites, dander, and broken carpet fibers into the air when we pull them and the padding underneath out. We often use plastic sheeting to build on-the-spot containment chambers inside the house we are mitigating. However, air scrubbers play a crucial role in keeping the air clean for us, and eventually, for your family. The HEPA filtration system can snare particulates as small as 0.3 microns, about 150 are needed to equal the width of a human hair. Pretty small!
Our SERVPRO technicians take a holistic approach regarding water damage mitigation; there is more to the service than just extracting water and removing the dampness. We ensure that the IAQ indoor air quality is within safe levels, unpleasant odors have been eliminated, and your contents and structure are safe and secure.
