Weighted Extraction Units for Saturated Morristown Flooring

Choosing professional restoration for your damaged Morristown home might not always be the easiest decision, despite our extensive inventory of recovery tools and years of expertise. For water loss incidents, many homeowners mistakenly believe that the damage is only as bad as they can see, and neglect moisture and dampness in the padding and subflooring beneath carpets. These materials can become a breeding ground for microbial threats

One of the ways that our restoration team gets set apart from other options in the area is the tools we have for tasks like water removal in Morristown homes. For regions like carpeted floors, our professionals arrive with several weighted extraction units to remove moisture from both the carpet material and the padding below. Choosing among the types available depends on the area needing attention and sometimes even the saturation level of these materials. 

There are two main types of deep extraction tools available to get attached to wet vacuums and extraction units. 

Self-Propelled Extraction Tools 

These units are among the most advanced in weighted extractors as they feature an independent motor that can move the entire tool throughout the damaged area at a consistent rate. Because of their weight, these units pass over carpeted areas and squeeze the padding and carpet together, forcing moisture to the surface. These machines have an intake hose to move the surfaced moisture to the extraction unit for disposal.

Stationary Units

These vary in sizes up to 200 square inches. Much like the motorized options, these pads feature an intake hose to move displaced water through the extractor and to the drainage point. While these units involve more movement and placement than the propelled versions, these are ideal for situations where space and accessibility for self-propelled units are limited. 

Removing moisture from the carpets of your home can be more complicated than it seems, especially for homeowners who do not have the sophisticated tools available to our SERVPRO of Hamblen County team. No matter how we can help, from extraction to more intricate restoration practices, give our professionals a call at (423) 318-6733.
