A certain area in your home resembles a swimming pool because it’s completely drenched in water.

There are a ton of reasons why the water damage could hurt you, so it’s not just because you might lose a few materialistic possessions. In the worst cases your health could be at risk, but it won’t happen when Dryfast delivers their water extraction services to you. You might be interested in the areas of your home prone to problems, so let’s look at them and you’ll know what to keep an eye out for.
Water Extraction From Carpets
We’re not talking about walking on the carpet when your feet are a little bit wet. Imagine something goes wrong with your washing machine and your carpets turn into a football pitch surface after torrential rain. You can open all the windows and get down on your hands and knees to blow it, but the carpet is only going to be saved with the proper tools to extract all the water from it before it turns into a dangerous area, and you’ll need to replace the carpet with a brand new one.
All Of Your Hard Surfaces
Hard surfaces are a blessing in disguise, but they’re also very problematic at the same time. The good thing about them is the fact they’ll be able to handle a small amount of water, and if you catch it quick enough you can soak it up and save the day. When a large amount of water is allowed to sit on a hard surface for a while it will soak in, at which point there is nothing you can do. Unless you want mold to form you’ll need the water professionally extracted.
Pumping Out Standing Water
This is the kind of problem you only face a maximum of once in your lifetime, because after you’ve been traumatized by the experience you’ll do everything possible to avoid a repeat performance. A perfect example is walking into your basement to grab something and ending up knee-deep in water. Before you can even begin to fix the area where the water came in, which Dryfast will be able to do, the water will need to be pumped out until your basement doesn’t resemble the ocean.
Removal Of Sewage
I think you’ll agree this is not only a nuisance that can cause a lot of damage, but it’s the quickest way to avoid your home at all costs until the problem is gone. Sewage backs up all the time, and even though it’s easy to extract it from your home you won’t want to wait around. Stop flushing certain things down the drain because it might be what causes your blockages in the first place, but you can’t change the past so reach out to Dryfast at the first sign of sewage water coming out where it doesn’t belong.
Clearing Up The Crawlspaces

Water is magical and it doesn’t stay anywhere for long, so it will find its way into the living areas of your home. Once your walls and ceilings start to look like they’re mysteriously becoming wet on their own you might have a buildup of water in a crawlspace. Dryfast can reach the areas you can’t see and our water extraction specialists will be able to dry them up using our special tools.
