Water Removal Twin Falls – Humidifier Water Leak

During winter months, many residential consumers run humidifiers to increase humidity in their homes. The humidity level in a home can drop below 30%, which can dry out furniture, floors and even make it uncomfortable for occupants with dry, itchy skin. Many humidifiers are attached to a water supply and fill automatically. Just like any other appliance, these humidifiers can develop a leak, creating wet conditions in the area of your heating system.

Water removal in Twin Falls in basements presents unique challenges. SERVPRO has worked with clients, who much to their surprise, encounter wet basements, involving carpets, a variety of wet items stored on the floor, and furniture. In most situations, everything can be dried and restored; however, it is essential to complete repairs and dry everything to avoid further damage.

Restoring Contents Stored in the Basement

Many consumers use their basements for storage, and everything is placed directly on the floor in boxes. When there is a water leak, cardboard boxes naturally soak up any moisture present. Everything must be removed from exposed containers. Every item is evaluated for cleaning in place, dry cleaning if needed, and repacked. Most cardboard boxes must be thrown out and replaced.

There are many different types of flooring found in the basement. SERVPRO evaluates the amount of water and damage to floors to design the best water removal approach. We mop or vacuumed all water from hard floors such as tile and hardwood. We use water extractors for carpeting and underpad.

SERVPRO may suggest turning off the humidifier until humidity levels return to normal levels. Depending on conditions, we may also deploy dehumidifiers and air movers to lower humidity levels. Many homeowners install floating floors in basements to allow water to drain under the floor. SERVPRO can check under the floor to confirm moisture levels and can deploy specialty air movers to dry these areas as well.

SERVPRO can also provide full-service restoration services to our clients. Our Contractor License is: Residential: RCE-43137
