Water Removal and Drying

You can count on us to quickly restore your property to pre-loss condition or better because we have vast knowledge, experience and use the most effective equipment and techniques in the industry.

Whether your water damage situation is larger or small, water extraction must be executed promptly and very thoroughly in order to prevent more severe problems from surfacing in the future, such as mold. The key to effective water removal is to start quickly and dry completely - not just carpet and wall surfaces - but also framing, insulation, sub-flooring and other structural components behind the scenes.

Flood Specialists uses moisture meters and infrared thermal imaging cameras to assess the degree of water penetration both at the surface and in the core of the structure. Based on the results of that assessment, our technicians then apply a variety of techniques and equipment to ensure complete drying with refrigerant dehumidifiers for smaller jobs, desiccant dehumidifiers for larger projects, Thermal Energy System for 1-day drying.
