Use SERVPRO to Professionally Clear Your Poughkeepsie Residence of Water 

Regardless of the source of flooding in your home, not removing the water promptly can cause damage. If it sits too long, water can delaminate carpets, cause air pockets to form under linoleum, and warp wooden flooring. 

There is only a shallow layer of water across my home, is it still a problem? 

  • It only takes a small amount to buckle or split floorboards, so water removal for Poughkeepsie homes is needed even faster. Fortunately, each SERVPRO office has an extensive inventory of commercial-grade equipment designed for the task. 
  • Standard Extraction Wands – These devices look similar to the ones available for rent at major retailers, but ours are far more versatile. Technicians can adjust the vacuum rate for the best possible result without delaminating carpet layers or splitting floorboards. They can also adjust a heating element to increase the temperature to speed up the drying process carefully. 
  • Self-Propelled Extractors – For large, carpeted areas, these devices work more efficiently. An operator can walk behind or ride these versions to remove the water out of every square-foot of your carpet. 
  • Technician Carried Extractors – These smaller devices have a portable power-source and water tank. They are instrumental in tight spaces like closets. 

What happens after you remove the water? 

Team members detach carpets from the floors and roll them out of the way. Since carpet pads deteriorate rapidly, they dispose of them, unroll the carpets, then dry them and the floor using air movers to generate a warm airflow on one side and a box fan to pull damp air away. 

How quickly can you dry out my home?

Each SERVPRO team works quickly, but the time needed depends on the amount of water in your home and if there is damage requiring restoration or replacement.
