Water Losses Need Good Extraction

When water damage affects your home or business you can depend on SERVPRO of Des Moines SW and East. Our team is IICRC trained and certified in water mitigation.  The first step in the process to restore the property is to remove the excess standing water.  We do this with extraction equipment. One of our most commonly used pieces of extraction equipment is a portable extractor.  This unit has high suction capability but also is very portable and can be moved around to different areas of the building easily.  The wand attachment is easy to use.  This tool of our industry is great and used mostly. We also have weighted extraction units, truck mounted units, as well as pumps for deep water extraction.  You can depend on SERVPRO staff to use the right equipment for the right job.

Fire Damage Cleanup- The Seal Coat

Fire Damage Cleanup- The Seal Coat

When fire damage affects your home or business you can depend on SERVPRO of Des Moines SW to help with the cleanup process. We will come in and provide a plan of action for the cleanup. One of the items on the plan of action after removing affected materials might be to seal the structure before rebuilding begins. This seal coat locks in any residual odor that might still remain in the structure and not allow it to penetrate through that seal coat. This picture shows after we have seal coated a lower level of a residence. After this seal coat is applied reconstruction can begin.
