RESTORATION EQUIPMENT FOR WATER DAMAGE
Perhaps you've heard of companies and contractors that offer services to restore your water-damaged furnishings.
Indeed, water damage can affect anybody and it usually happens quite unexpectedly.
Flash flooding, a leak in the ceiling, fire sprinklers, and a break in the sewer line can all cause serious water overflow and contaminate everything along the way.
But how do these people do it? What kind of equipment do they use to clean carpets, upholstery and other home furnishings? Believe it or not, they don't have access to any top-secret information. They simply have the money to invest in new cleaning devices and put forth the effort to clean things right.
Some tools are known as carpet blowers or air movers. The purpose of this device is to move large amounts of air underneath and on drying carpets for rapid evaporation. Within just a little while a carpet that was washed and vacuumed can be completely dry, due to the speed of the device. Priced at less than $200.00, the item is very valuable for professional carpet cleaners.
Dehumidifiers can get rid of any moisture in the air in a relatively short time. The way it works, is that you install the device in a humid room, close the door and seal any exiting spaces or crevices. Within 24 hours the dehumidifier can get rid of moisture from the walls and floors and lower the overall humidity of a room. This is a very valuable tool in cleaning carpets and complete rooms that have suffered water damage.
There are high-powered vacuums specially made for flood damaged carpets and certain types of upholstery. With extra long hoses (100 feet) and the capacity to store over 50 gallons of liquid, this device is the primary tool of a restoration specialist. There are also vac boosters that can be added to vacuums to add even more suction power.
Other interesting items include aqua sensors (for sensing mildew build up) and ozone producers. None of these items are astronomically priced-most sell for less than a $1000.00. They are tools for cleaning and restoration specialists. While these devices help the clean up operation, the real weapon is a specialist's knowledge on how to get rid of dirt and contamination.
