What is Water Extraction?
The process of water extraction involves removing excess or standing water from your residential or commercial property. As one of the most trusted water restoration companies in Northern California, Dry Kings works to minimize damage to your home or business, prevent mold growth and other potential health and safety hazards, and restore your property to its previous condition.
What Happens During the Water Extraction Process?
Although DIYers may be tempted to tackle water extraction themselves with wet vacs or fans, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. The pros at Dry Kings have state-of-the-art water extraction equipment and tools to ensure that all water is removed from your property to avoid further water damage. When extracting water from your home or business, Dry Kings focusing on three main areas:
1. Stopping the flow of water
It’s important to find the root cause of water flow (i.e., appliance overflow, leaking pipes, etc.). Otherwise, the water cannot be safely and effectively removed until the cause of the problem is identified. This is why it’s important to call a plumber ahead of time to ensure the source of the unwanted water is fixed before the restoration process is completed.
2. Draining the visible water
Once the source of the problem is found and stopped and all safety hazards are removed from the area, the water removal process can begin. Our team will remove all visible water from your property.
3. Removing non-visible water
Although all visible water may be gone, it’s possible that there is water hidden in other parts of your home or business. If untreated, hidden water damage can turn into mold or cause other health and safety hazards.
