drying equipment in kitchen, wood floor SERPVRO provides advanced drying equipment to dry carpeting, hardwood flooring, and resilient tiles in Mount Kisco--"Like it never even happened."

Various flooring materials require unique water removal tactics to restore Mount Kisco properties.

Water damage incidents rarely stay confined to where the problem originated. As water migrates through the structure, several flooring materials and structural elements become affected.  Our rapid-response team comes prepared to help clean surface water threats and remove trapped moisture in features like carpeting and wood plank flooring. Our Green Fleet vehicles arrive stocked with:

  • Extractors
  • Drying Equipment
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Specialty Removal Tools

Carpeted Floors

Water removal for Mount Kisco properties can involve elements like carpeting in your home. As highly porous and absorbent materials, your carpet can become fully saturated by water damage shortly after exposure. Attachments like carpet wands are vital for forcefully pulling up trapped moisture from the fibers of the carpet and the padding underneath.

Wood and Engineered Wood Flooring

Semi-porous materials like wood flooring do not immediately absorb standing water, but when moisture penetrates through the planks, there is a finite timeline before irreparable harm occurs. We utilize special drying equipment like mats spread out on these affected floors to bring moisture to the surface through capillary suction.

Non-Porous Flooring Materials

There are several types of non-porous flooring materials that can be installed in your home. Many properties, for example, have tiles installed in the bathroom. When these structural elements encounter standing water, they do not absorb this moisture. This can be more destructive to related elements like baseboards and drywall as the water is more likely to pool. Extractors work fast to remove this surface water threat.

With multiple types of flooring in modern homes, water damage can impact these materials differently depending on the severity of the situation. Our SERVPRO of Northern Westchester County team arrives with suitable solutions for multiple types of damage that could exist to mitigate loss and protect these affected materials when possible.
