Water cleanup can be very challenging for a property owner. Whenever property is damaged by water, it is essential to dry that property and all contents as quickly and effectively as possible.Today, the “science of drying” has improved significantly. Water cleanup that involves soaked carpet, pad and drywall can often be competely restored and will not require replacement. This results in lower associated costs for the loss, and it allows the occupants to return to their normal lives much faster and with far less disruption. Burke Emergency Restoration in Manchester, NH employs properly trained restoration professionals who use state-of-the-art equipment, procedures and techniques to help keep thier repair costs down and drying times to a minimum. Faster drying also means less time for mold or other fungi to develop or colonize. This helps alleviate possible health problems that can occur as a result of fungal contamination.
Other benefits of rapidly removing moisture include the prevention of irreversible swelling in porous materials such as paper and wood, shrinkage in fabrics (such as upholstery and drapes), rust on metals and damage to electronic equipment. Burke ER uses newer technologies that include LGR Dehumidifiers (Low Grain Refrigerant) that can remove up to 16 gallons of water from the air per day, Dessicants that use silica gel to absorb moisture from the air and Intra-wall drying that dries the inside of the walls without removing the drywall. In this process, baseboards are removed and small holes are drilled through walls near the base. Air is then forced into the cavity behind the wall dramatically reducing drying time.
Water cleanup doesn’t have to be a bank-breaking endeavor. By employing knowledgeable restoration professionals who have the latest equipment, knowledge and expertise the contents and structure can be dried effectively and returned to pre-loss condition.
