The Importance of Water Removal Services

Many do not appreciate how dire circumstances can be when water removal for San Rafael homes is necessary.

Are Wet Vacuums Versatile Enough for Water Restoration? 

Wet vacuums can often be among the most versatile water restoration tools because technicians can use them with multiple attachments. Direct use of wet vacuums can remove standing water beneath two inches in depth but can also power secondary specialty tools like carpet wands or weighted extractors that force moisture that becomes trapped in carpeting.

How Can Efficient Drying Occur After Water Removal? 

After any successful water removal effort, responding technicians must address how to remove trapped moisture in the environment and affected materials.
