The Importance of Fast Water Removal Services for Your Dallas Home
Removing Standing Water to Mitigate Damage
Water emergencies are nothing you can plan for, but there are some steps you can take to prevent the most common threats to your Dallas residence.
With appliances being a leading cause of internal flooding of your Dallas home, preventative maintenance stands as a critical action for avoiding these circumstances. Unfortunately, you might not always be mindful of when your appliances require servicing, with the added expense of getting them looked at not something you want to do regularly.
However, appliances are the leading cause of required water removal services for your Dallas residence. With a significant malfunction, a water-fed device can continue to fill indefinitely, or an over-pressurized supply hose could break free from the back, spilling many volumes of water onto the floor until the problem is noticed.
While most homeowners know how to shut off the supply valves to each appliance, this knowledge does not address the most pressing issue of the pooled water on the floors of the affected area around the machine. Fortunately, we at SERVPRO pride ourselves on being Faster To Any Size Disaster, including the significant water emergency you might be facing.
From the moment that we arrive, and the water supply has been shut down (if you have not already done this), our priority is extraction. This process utilizes a pump truck from our SERVPRO fleet for severe flooding but can also get accomplished with a combination of portable pumps and wet vacs with extraction wands.
