Water and Moisture Removal from a Kitchen in Palatine
SERVPRO Protocols and Methodologies Result in Professional Water Removal and Cleanup
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in our homes. Apart from storing, cooking, and preparing meals, it also serves as a location for doing related tasks such as dishwashing. However, what would happen if, say, a water pipe bursts within the wall behind a cabinet in the kitchen? Or, worse, a harrowing flood sweeps angrily through the house like a bag of wasps? The damage can be devastating and, in some cases, spread to other rooms in the house. Exactly how prepared are you for such a situation?
SERVPRO functions and offers services specifically for this purpose. We have high-tech equipment and highly trained professionals offering water removal services for kitchens in Palatine homes. With a drying goal in mind, and like an organized army of ants, our technicians set out to clean up and restore your house.
However, first things first: if pooling water is present, we extract the liquid from the building. Then we can to take moisture content readings from dry items – readings in percentage for wooden materials, and in points for non-wooden materials. The results serve as the dry standard for the wet items in the kitchen. Then we increase the rate of evaporation using drier air. Drier air equals to low humidity. Low humidity accelerates the drying process.
As meticulous as a sniper, a SERVPRO specialist uses a moisture reader to document the moisture content level periodically. Comparing these readings helps us to determine whether a material is drying. For upholstery and other kitchen furnishings, our technicians use extractors to remove water from the water damage. Most extractors come with three primary components: vacuum system, pump, and heater. We use all three of them when cleaning upholstery.
Keeping in mind that all items exposed to water damage require evaluation for cleaning needs, our technicians always work with a list. We check storage areas for contents that need cleaning and deodorization, as well as wall hangings and photographs in the kitchen. Once we complete the restoration process, we check everything to confirm the space is completely dry.
Water damage, whether minor or major, can be detrimental. Do not let it keep you from enjoying your kitchen. SERVPRO of Palatine / Rolling Meadows is available to offer immediate water removal services for your property. Give us a call today at (847) 934-1700.
