When water disasters impact your Lake Zurich home, our professionals can help with efficient extraction to protect installed construction materials.

Understanding the destructive and devastating nature of standing water in your Lake Zurich home can express the urgency that homeowners should have when facing these circumstances. While different flooring materials can become impacted by these situations, each of these structural elements requires varying tools and techniques to resolve.

Because water cleanup in Lake Zurich homes means so many different tasks, it helps to have a versatile and well-trained staff like our SERVPRO team to help. Our inventory of recovery tools that arrives at the site with us can address standing water on the surface and any of the moisture that has gotten absorbed into the exposed material. Some of the approaches for popular flooring types include:

  • Carpeting – Soft flooring materials are an everyday staple of area homes, and these coverings can be highly absorbent and easily damaged by standing water and saturation. Carpet wands, weighted extractors, and other tools can remove trapped moisture in these materials. 
  • Wood Flooring – Wood plank flooring can begin absorbing surface material quickly after exposure. With floor mat drying systems and other efficient evaporative techniques, we can prevent the need for tear-out. 
  • Tile – While porcelain and other tile materials are low porosity flooring options, grouted joints and seams along the walls can allow moisture and water under the tiles to break them loose. 

What Extraction Tools Are Best for Unexpected Water Disasters?

Removing the water from surfaces can be one of the most efficient methods to prevent more significant property damage through absorption and deterioration. We can use multiple tools for this, including wet vacuums and submersible pumps.

Water restoration often cannot wait, so trust in the team that can get there right away. Give our SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich team a call today at (847) 279-1940.
