Water Extraction in Neosho Missouri

Water Extraction in Neosho Missouri

The first step in professional water damage restoration is removing all moisture possible from the structure. The less water remaining in materials such as carpets means less time to properly dry down. 

Pictured is our Weighted Extraction Unit which removes water from carpets and pad with extraordinary efficiency. Not all water extraction methods are equal. While a portable wet / dry vacuum may remove a lot of water, it is not getting it all. Same can be said for rental carpet cleaner units, they simply don't have the extraction power of professional units.

Water left behind not only increases the time to effectively dry your property; it creates an unhealthy environment. Moisture left behind in carpets and pad can be a breading ground for bacteria and possible mold growth. Do not take that chance. Call SERVPRO of Carthage-Joplin if you have suffered a flood in your home or business.

How is your indoor air quality in your commercial property? There are lots of great reasons to have the air ducts cleaned in a commercial setting. Clean ducts promote a healthy work environment and a healthy work force is more productive.

Dirty ducts and air handler systems cannot function efficiently. It takes a lot more energy to produce the same results and that costs you money. Dirty systems are also prone to mechanical failures because of the extra wear and tear on parts working extra hard to perform.
