Your Local SERVPRO Can Help Speed Up Extraction and Take Other Steps That Control Damage

Once water spills or other forms of intrusion occur at your hotel, extraction is one way to control or prevent the resulting damages comprehensively. Other steps, such as moving contents, only offer partial reprieve since the water remains in the structure, which continues to deteriorate. Various methods of water extraction help, including:

  • Mopping
  • Scooping with buckets
  • Pumping
  • Wet-vacuuming

How does the water removal method chosen affect the level of damages?

The speed of water removal from your Camillus hotel is the central aspect affecting the resultant damages. Letting water sit in a property over extended periods creates an opportunity for extensive moisture migration. Microbial growth and other secondary damages can also occur when if it takes longer than 24 hours to extract water.

Apart from time, the equipment used during water removal can damage materials or contents in the affected areas through scratching, staining, or otherwise. Our SERVPRO crews inspect the loss site to determine the best equipment and accessories to use. For example, when wet vacuuming floors, we consider the floor material to determine whether to use squeegee wands or other alternatives. 

Do all water removal situations require sophisticated equipment?

Major water loss situations may require sophisticated pumps and extractors because of the volume of water involved. For other losses, simple tools can help complete the water extraction processes. However, there is still a need to choose the right tool for the task. For example, mops help with water removal as well as cleaning tasks, but there is a need to choose the right one since they differ in many ways:

  • Cotton mops

These are the standard mops readily available

  • Sponge squeeze mops

These mops have a self-wringing capability

  • Microfiber Mops

Similar to the standard mops but with microfibers that improve cleaning

Our SERVPRO teams bring a variety of equipment in our production trucks, including the simple ones, to capitalize on the benefits of each kind, thus improving the outcome.

Water loss situations are rarely static. Call SERVPRO of SW Onondaga County at (315) 488-3900 to help manage an incident at your premises, "Like it never even happened."
