In-Place Drying Used to Dry Basement

Carpeted room with carpet peeled back and drying equipment placed strategically to dry the carpet and the walls In-Place Drying Equipment Is Used To Save Carpet and Keep Insurance Claims Down

A strong rainstorm in July 2020 hit SE Wisconsin and this basement in Waukesha, WI  got flooded due to the hydrostatic pressure in the ground and the water having no where to go except into the basement.

Because this was rain water, SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County was able to save this new carpet.  The carpet pad had to be removed in order to dry out the structure and the carpet more efficiently.  After lifting the carpet and removal of the carpet pad, the technicians at SERVPRO extracted the remaining water from the concrete and laid the carpet back down.  Then, specialty drying equipment designed to direct air flow down, was set up to dry that carpet and, believe it or not, the concrete underneath it.  Also, as the air flow hits the carpet, it will bounce off the floor and blow onto the drywall.  As a result, We can dry the carpet, concrete and drywall with one fan.

For all your emergency water damage and restoration needs, call SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County.  262-542-0900
