Damage Restoration Equipment: Water Extraction & Dry Ice Blasting
What does a service restoration company do and why should you hire them? Those are good questions, which we will help explain by telling you what some of our restoration equipment does.
By describing how our equipment operates, you will see why paying the extra money is worth it versus attempting the job yourself. Better to have a job done correctly the first time than to waste time and resources having to redo it.
Without further ado, water extraction and dry ice blasting:
Water Extraction Equipment
Flooding in Los Angeles is a serious issue due to poor drainage and improper city planning. When it rains heavily, the sewers and streets overflow, sending the water down into your basements.
While you could remove the water with buckets and a shop vac, this can actually be unsafe. Flood water can be contaminated with garbage, feces, and other nasty materials. Rather than risk your own health, call a damage restoration with the equipment and know-how to handle the situation.
ServiceMaster Recovery by C2C Restoration uses pumps that are specifically designed to remove flood water and properly dispose of contaminants. This is safer for the homeowner and the environment, not to mention more efficient.
Dry Ice Blasting
Dry ice blasting equipment is used in mold remediation and to remove soot and smoke damage from surfaces. It is a form of abrasive blasting, which typically uses sand or plastic pellets, but our tool uses frozen carbon dioxide, known as dry ice.
So what does this futuristic item do? Using high pressure, the machine shoots dry ice pellets at an area that is covered in mold, soot, or smoke damage, and removes the unwanted spot. Unlike the restoration equipment using sand or plastic, the dry ice pellets from ours turn back into gas, leaving no mess behind.
This is the most effective and fastest way to remove mold spores and fire damage, so if you have trouble areas give ServiceMaster Clean by C2C Restoration a call!
