Chairs floating in flood waters inside a building Finding water damage in any part of your home or business can seem overwhelming. Call SERVPRO and we'll be your ally during the remediation process.

SERVPRO technicians find the most effective way to remediate water damage at your home or business property.

While our approach to water removal can vary greatly depending on size, intensity, and duration of water damage, you will almost always see us using our signature air movers. They are powerful, directed fans that create fast and carefully-planned streams of air throughout an area. These are employed in a wide variety of situations, from tight corners to vast, open warehouses. Scientific planning goes into our application of these industrial-grade machines, and every SERVPRO technician is well-trained in operating them.
 
Air movers are critical in Lyon and Storey County water removal jobs because they accomplish a tough task: drying up water already soaked into materials. Whether it is carpet, wood, grout, or even concrete, air movers apply a consistent and heavy stream of air to the surface to pick up individual water droplets and put them into the air. These services are needed in almost every water removal job SERVPRO does because we specialize in some of the heaviest and most thorough cleanup jobs on the market.
 
Many different protocols and planning situations can affect how our technicians arrange air movers in your home or business. Some types of carpeting, when soaked, can only be dried when an air mover blows underneath it. So, a common treatment is to lift up one end of the carpet to create a long air tube underneath it. Alternatively, for irregularly shaped rooms or situations requiring drying of high walls and ceilings, we may position the air movers at a vertical angle to direct air currents upwards. In most cases, air movers are kept in a room with closed doors to make air currents most efficient, but we may also strategically position some machines to push moisture from one room into another. This setup is most common when rooms are too small to dehumidify on their own and must be linked with a larger area.
 
Regardless of the size or severity of your damage, SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe / Lyon & Storey Counties is ready 24/7 to respond to your time of crisis. Just call us at (775) 588-2355.
