Importance of Water Extraction The most important step when removing standing water in your basement is utilizing water extraction techniques. Every home is a little different, and we are fully equipped with several different tools to aid the process. Through the uses of truck-mounted extraction units, pumps and floor wands, we are able to extract up to 99% of the standing water upon arrival. The remaining moisture will be dried using a combination of air movers and dehumidification technologies. When done correctly, this drying process can slow down the development of secondary damage and mold growth. Secondary Damage Secondary damage happens when water is not extracted properly and tries to evaporate on its own. Usually in the home, there is not enough volume of air to hold all of the moisture present, so when the air becomes saturated, the remaining moisture seeps into any material that can hold moisture. Typically it will be the drywall, hardwood floors, subfloors and other building materials. Not only that, but mold thrives on oxygen, moisture and a food source. Most building materials in the home are prime food sources for mold growth when moisture is introduced. Below are some examples of secondary damage: Mold growth Plaster & Sheet Rock sagging Hardwood floor damage Manufactured flooring detaching from subfloor Allowing standing water to sit for more than 24-48 hours puts your home and occupants at risk of mold growth and secondary damage.
